Is it possible to imagine Nintendo without the iconic, mustachioed shorty in a red cap? Probably not, as the plumber's adventures have been a major draw to the Kyoto-based Japanese giant's consoles for decades. It's no different this time. And there's more. Super Mario Odyssey is the best platformer game since the release of Super Mario Galaxy and its charming beauty references the first 3D platformer, namely Super Mario 3D.
In fact, it's enough to say that Super Mario Odyssey is great, as the game's millions of buyers cannot be wrong. The problem is that this explanation won't be enough for everyone. So let's not forget to mention the fantastic visuals, the brilliant soundtrack, the amazing layouts of more than fifteen levels, and the long-lasting "endgame" that offers even more great puzzles.
And seriously - we can't imagine someone buying a Switch and skipping on Super Mario. It's the quintessence of Nintendo's philosophy, the company's creme de la creme and certainly the best platform game ever. We deservedly ranked it at the very top of the best games for NS.
