Mario Galaxy is fun, but I had a weird sensation playing it. Couldn't stand to play it for more than 45min to 1 hour in a sitting. Not quite sure why... Maybe the poor presentation?
I've been playing a lot of snes lately, but thinking back n64 and some later Nintendo games suffered from lackluster presentation. No cutscenes (of any substance), no voice acting, I notice menu elements reused in many first party games. I think I've been playing too many Western games where the story is the focal point and the gameplay serves as a means to progress that. Nintendo seems to have gameplay for the sake of gameplay with minimal plot development or multimedia pizazz.
Maybe the Zelda games fared better. I still haven't gotten around to putting any substantial time into Twilight Princess (or Wind Waker, which seems less appealing to me).
Speaking of Nintendo, did you order that n64 flash cart? My Super Everdrive came this week and I've been loving it!
