Zelda II definitely is. I think it's a top 5 game in the series. SMB2 is about fairly rated I think.

Zelda 2 is an amazing game. A lot of people are just whiners about the difficulty and that "we demand innovation but fear change!" kind.

Zelda isn't supposed to be a 2D sidescroller. It's not supposed to be an open world game either. *Looks at Breath of the Wild*

Mario is not supposed to be an RPG or a kart racer either, but it works well regardless. Even still, Zelda was open-world before it wasn't, so that's not entirely accurate.

Mario can be whatever the f*** Nintendo wants it to be.

Mario Bros 2 doesn't get enough love, most people don't even know it exists. Is a good game all things considered.

Zelda II is a hipster kind of thing when Zelda fans are looking a new game to play each year. Game is ok, but is not exactly the holy grail either

I say they are rated about where the should be: Good just not great

AoL was my first Zelda and it's had its hooks in me since.

I loved the hell out of SMB2 as well. The hours memorizing the slot machine timing to get three cherries every time.

Man I loved the NES.

same. i even had the gold cart at the time. i went back and played the first after it and...instantly hated it. it's the only non-portable zelda i've never replayed. maybe if i had played it first, i woulda liked it but after playing 2 it just seemed bad and it's never recovered for me.

Even though they both got varying degrees of backlash, I'd love to see full remakes of both of them.


I would love to see a full sequel to Mario 2.


I’m hoping for a sequel to “Super Mario bros. 2”, have been ever since i first played it on a friend’s NES over 25 years ago, “Super Mario advance” (The GBA remake of SMB2) is my most played Gameboy Advance game too, so i would love a sequel...

Those are called SPIN OFFS. Zelda 2 isn't a Zelda spin off. It's a mainline Zelda game.

Yeah like Zelda 1. The open world one.

Zelda 1 is still more of a Zelda game than BotW.

No breakable weapons, using items to solve puzzles, actually good dungeons with good rewards for making it through the dungeon, not having everything handed to you at the start of the game. Shall I go on???
Prepare for trouble.

The term "Triple A Gaming" sure has become a great punchline

using items to solve puzzles,

kinda like, i dunno...cryonis or stasis or magnesis.

with good rewards for making it through the dungeon

kinda like, i dunno...mipha's grace, or revali's grace, or daruk's protection, or urbosa's furY.

shall i go on????????????

you not liking the game is fine. acting like every sequel should be exactly like the previous game is one of the dumbest things ever.
