Besides sequels, every 3D Mario title has been a major gameplay departure from the last, introducing new mechanics. How do you feel about this approach?
I prefer when new 3D Mario games are completely different from the previous entry.
I prefer when new 3D Mario games have similar gameplay to previous entries, but with a different core mechanic (Cappy, FLUDD, etc.)
I'd prefer more direct sequels with no changes to core gameplay, just more content such as levels and powerups.
I prefer a mix of both; with new 3D Mario games releasing with new gameplay, but sequels still being made to fill the gap and provide a familiar experience.
Regardless of changes from game to game, I do not enjoy 3D Mario at all.
I have no opinion.
