Oh Nintendo did so many things right when they released Luigi’s Mansion! Finally Nintendo gave the sidekick their own game and by stepping out of their “perfected” equation bubble.
I loved the spooky feeling that this game gave off without actually being spooky or scary. It made you feel more brave about things because Luigi was so scared. You as the player are in control of Luigi so it’s almost like you are coaxing him along to progress in the game, helping to give him confidence to do what needs to be done which takes the spooky aspects away. Not that the game really was or is that spooky or scary. 😉
I think one of the reasons why I really loved the game was because of its deviance from the traditional Nintendo and Mario games. It was refreshing. But it also helped that the game itself was fun. it was challenging in just the right ways and the story line was good and there. Which doesn’t happen too often for me.
And how great is it that Luigi had to save Mario?! Finally Mario is the one who screwed up and got caught. It’s something that I always wondered about, what happens when Mario gets caught and who saves Mario? But now my questions have been answered. Somewhat. Luigi is the one who gets called up and has to save Mario from the mess he finds himself in. Moral of the story is: Luigi is the real hero. Always. Luigi is the best brother.
Have you played Luigi’s Mansion? What are your thoughts on it? If you haven’t, what are you doing?! Go play it! 😛
Stay classy and sassy. 😉 ❤
