With Peach kidnapped by Bowser (again), Mario is blasted off into deep space to save his special one, as well as collect Power Stars to restore the Comet Observatory!
This game blew me away when I first played it. Of course, I'd played Mario 64 and Sunshine to death, so I was used to 3D Mario. This, however, had such a visual flair, a unique feel and a booming orchestral soundtrack. I've played it countless times, and I'm sure I'll play it countless more.
The Okami Amaterasu's adventure to restore nature and light to the broken and polluted country of Nippon!
This is my favorite game of all time. There's so much that it does right, from its gorgeous sumi-e artstyle, to its fantastic world and interesting characters. I can't praise it enough. It's a game I can enjoy no matter my mood, and something truly special to me.
