I'm guessing LauriJ didn't tell us hers because she's secretly plotting to kill us all.

The pacing worked great for the original, but Zip Lash made me want to bash my head against a wall.

That said, the Amiibo is indeed one of the best ever.

I think it's the style of the game that makes it unappealing to me more than anything.

Some of you may not remember these, but does anyone on here recall Colorforms? Paper Mario reminds me of that a bit, but with really simplified versions of the drawings. It was as though Mario took a step forward in design with every iteration up to that point, then stepped back to where he looked to be drawn by your friendly neighborhood third grader.

The style just turned me off. Perhaps I'll give it another shot at some point for the game play, but the style is just visually unappealing to me.

Super Mario 64 wasn't a reboot in terms of gameplay. The only thing that it brought back were some classic tunes and enemies (plus the basic plot).

StarFox 64, I'll give you that one, total reboot albeit with better graphics and sound. (I like 64 better though personally).

Life, and I don't mean the board game.

Video game wise, I'm going to have to go with the classic Super Mario 64, maybe Galaxy.

Board game wise, Ticket to Ride.

It's Wikipedia. Either of you could give it a page if you wanted.

Zip Lash wasn't great-tier, but it wasn't disagreeable. I wouldn't recommend someone go buy it but I also wouldn't feel bad for them if they received it as a gift.
You can't hold the slow-pacedness against it; that's kind of Chibi-Robo's thing. It was a game about scrubbing the floor with a toothbrush. The platformer is actually a nonstop thrillride in comparison.

The important part about Zip Lash was actually the amiibo. It's my favorite one!

Ouch. Yeah, that was a series that didn't get the follow-ups it deserved. Chibi-Robo is a bona fide sleeper hit in my book, but I heard that DS sequel (which was exclusive to Wal-Mart for no apparent reason) was lacking, and now Zip Lash isn't even worth a bullet point.

Star Fox lay dormant for a decade.

I'll be surprised if we ever see another Chibi Robo after that infuriatingly slow-paced sidescroller got middling reviews. Fun fact, Zip Lash doesn't even have its own Wikipedia article. Instead it's relegated to a three-sentence subsection of the entry about the whole series.
