I have mixed feelings about cross-platform play in Smite so far....

Super Mario 64 was not exactly linear either, and you could get certain stars before doing others. Sunshine was a little bit more limited but it allowed some exploration. With Galaxy it started to get more linear, and with SMG2 the levels are even in a line!This one seems quite unpopular, just gauging from what I have seen on other social media, but Super Mario Galaxy really doesn't need another sequel. I see so many people asking for a Mario Galaxy 3 and I just kind of wonder why. While the Mario Galaxy games are 3D games, they are pretty linear in many stages, and since Mario Galaxy 1, most of the main Super Mario games have been linear, whether in 2D, 2D with 3D looking models, or linear 3D games. The only game I can think of that doesn't fit this mold is Super Mario Odyssey. Linear Mario games have their place for sure, but I would just rather not see another major one for awhile.
Not only that, but the Mario Galaxy series itself just kind of feels done at this point. Like besides just making new levels, what are gameplay elements you can add to the series, without straying too far from what the Mario Galaxy games are? I honestly can't think of that many more different kinds of suit Marios, because there is just much different level design they can still explore.
I would just much rather see a sequel to Super Mario Odyssey, since the series is still fresh, and they are sandbox Mario games and still have a lot of different level types they can explore, as well as introducing new, or bringing back old enemies to explore the capture mechanic with.
Sunshine was interesting because it had the 64 style open levels but then some of the “stars” (shrine sprites) were in separate “Secret of...” (I think that’s what they were called?) levels which were separate individual linear courses.Super Mario 64 was not exactly linear either, and you could get certain stars before doing others.

I like Minecraft as well but everytime I go to play somehow I end up playing Smash instead.I don't know if this is unpopular or not, but I like Minecraft, I like it because of what the community is able to come up with things making it into the official game. There are minigame servers for example. I just like the endless possibilities that it offers. I know the game is criticized, but I feel like it has so much more than you can do than what meets the eye.
Only one roblem here: You forgot about Kris.A controversial opinion on Pokemon Gold/Silver plot: Red may be ultimate badass and world greates trainer, but I'll never get why everyone both in and out of universe claims that he's responsible for fall of Team Rocket. All he did was stumble upon them by pure chance a few times, messed up some of their plans and caused their leader to ragequit - but even then it was pretty obvious that he AT MOST caused them to lay low for some time. He was inconvenience for them, sure, possibly even large, but not large enough for them to actually disband. Giovanni's "promise" to actually do it was so impossibly half-assed, I'm honestly surprised so many people took it seriously.
Credit for actually defeating them should go to Ethan/Lyra and Lance - they were the ones who tracked down their bases, they actively fought them and they played a key role in arresting their new leaders. And yet no one seems to ever mention it and everyone just treats it like Red kicking Giovanni's ass, then letting him escape after having a short talk magically caused everything and everyone releated in any way to Team Rocket to just poof out of existence. Why?
That's the same way I feel. As someone that doesn't care about the Battle Frontier (except the Battle Dome because I have a weakness for tournaments), the game felt underwhelming in hindsight, specially having to deal with two of the dumbest teams ever at the same time, and that were sprite swaps of each other.Pokemon Emerald really wasn't as amazing as a game as people say it is. Sure, it added new pokemon and allowed you to catch all three legendaries, but why people say it is good is the Battle Frontier from what I have seen. Once you get Rayquaza, the game is a basic cakewalk.
Out of all the third versions, this one was probably 3rd, only ahead of Yellow/Red/Blue depending on where you wereThat's the same way I feel.
