So with Super Mario Maker 2 on the horizon, I'd like to make a bit of a bizarre claim and say that everyone is severely underselling all the new features and additions to the game. I mean sure, people like the new stuff, but what a lot of people don't realize is how much any one of these features changes the game.
With every object, enemy, and power-up added to the mix, a goldmine of level design potential is unlocked. Just think about it for a second. There's all sorts of new level designs that can be made with all these new objects.

Like the babies, I don't really have any ill will towards them. They're pretty cool, and in the Mario Kart series, I like how I can play Mario or Peach and play as a heavyweight at the same time.

Personally, I don't really have an opinion on them. They don't do anything for me personally, though I don't hate them either, as in I wouldn't intentionally cut em from Mario Kart or anything (I even use Baby Daisy often in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe). At the same time though, I can understand why some would dislike them. Their best appearances imo are the Yoshi's Island games, since their connection with the Yoshis is pretty heartwarming, and I like the changes to the normal platformer formula they bring. Those are just my t…Read more >
