Nintendo has released no shortage of classics over the years. While it’s always fun to keep up to date with the latest and greatest video games from Nintendo and every other developer in the medium, sometimes, it’s also nice to revisit an old favorite and relive an excellent experience. Often, however, with life keeping us busy and backlogs keeping us occupied, we do not replay quite as many Nintendo games as we’d like. For example, I’ve been eyeing plenty of Nintendo games for a replay over the last few years, such as The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Super Mario Odyssey, Donkey Kong Country 2, and more. I’ve barely had time to work these games into my rotation with all of the games that I am constantly experiencing for the first time. When is the last time you completed a replay of a Nintendo game? Which game was it?
I replayed Super Mario Sunshine a little over two months ago. I replay the game every summer, and while I’ve missed a year here and there, this year was a standard case of me picking up the game on a warm summer’s day and proceeding to play through it over the ensuing week. Super Mario Sunshine is my favorite Nintendo game, and my love for it only deepens with each replay, so it’s not too hard for me to make time for it once a year. I might suck at replaying other games, but there is always room on my plate for some Super Mario Sunshine. Everything about it from the atmosphere to the music to the movement feels perfect each time I pick the game back up.
