There's actually several things on that list that make me think he must be playing on some sort of super PAL version where everything is slowed down to 10 FPS.

Ooh, those charts look much better than mine. Nice work!

Yeah, being disappointed in Super Metroid and Super Mario World might be pretty unpopular. Still, considering how highly those games have been built up, one could be disappointed yet still find them fantastic games.

(For the record, I really like Super Metroid, but think Super Mario World is weaker than SMB3.)

I didn't even notice the Super Mario World in there! My eyes instantly saw Super Metroid and the self destruct sequence initiated.

I am going to back up the lukewarm Super Mario World love. Beat it last year and found it to be alright. This is, of course coming from the perspective of playing and beating every single Mario game (New Super Mario Bros. 2 on 3DS excluded) before that. I understand a person coming into a lot of the super nintendo games late in life after experiencing a lot of similarly-style modern games and coming away with a moderate reaction.

Super Metroid is fine, I just don't like it as much as I apparently should. I much prefer SotN, and would instantly go back to it over revisiting Super Metroid.

As a kid, I had a friend who owned an NES with SMB and Gotcha!; I always wanted to play Gotcha!--. Other than Mario Sunshine, nothing about Mario platform games has ever been compelling to me. Revisiting them now, I just tend to also hate how they play. Yoshi's Island is great, though. I actually loved that game when I had it, briefly, in my youth.

I've continually forgotten that I even played Paper Mario this year, or that it's a game that exists.

Yep, judging by my plays of SotN, I favor it by a wide margin. I'm probably in the double digits on playthroughs by now.

I mainly played PC games, and I focused heavily on RPGs this year. Huh.
