This is definitely going to be an unpopular opinion but I’ve never liked the way Mario has felt in Mario games. I want to like Mario games and I’ve tried them all but I have never really like one before (except for Super Mario 3D World which I don’t like using Mario in it). For me Mario is the Star Wars of Video Games. I want to like to it, I don’t and it makes me sad that I don’t like it.
I picked up Odyssey hoping it would be different but I just don’t like the way Mario controls. His jump feels floaty and I often times find myself dying a lot more than I would like. This franchise is the perfect example of different strokes, its just not for me but I’ll keep trying.
This game looks great, from conversations with my friends they think it plays great and by all accounts its a good game that I do not like.
