For the past 4 platforming Mario games, Nintendo has basically made the same game. You could say there are different power ups but that's like saying each Pokemon game is different because it has different Pokemon. The graphics have been the same style since NSMB, and while they try to add things like carrying Yoshis and lots of coins, they come off as cheap gimmicks. I feel Nintendo is going the route of other big corporations and not caring about its customers.
Now with grandeur.

1. NSMB is a sub-series, not the main series.

2. Nintendo didn't make a machine that focuses only on watching TV and spying on people. I think we're getting the better deal here.

If it isn't the main series then what is? The SMB series died 20 years ago.

You can't seriously be discouting SM64, SMS, and SMG as part of "the SMB series". If your criteria for that is two-player options and side-scrolling, then... well, the whole point of NSMB was to bring that back, like it or not.

I'll take what we've got over what we had during the GameCube era any day of the week.

I for one liked Super Mario Sunshine.

Besides not being so big on Sunshine I also refer to the coincidental drought of real Mario games at that time. The best RPGs were all made in the early aughts but wow where did the real-time face-stomping action go?

Remakes on the GBA.

Nothing but remakes.

(which I'm actually fine with. That's how I first played SMB3 and Yoshi's Island.)

Don't forget all those spiffy e-Reader maps in SMA4.

I never had any of those. I didn't have an E-Reader. Made me a little sad.

Yes, but they only release series 1 and 2 of the cards.  Maybe we'll get all the levels on Wii U eventually.

Back when these forums got started, in the late N64 and early Cube era, there was thread after thread of people begging, pleading, dreaming, and scheming for new 2D Mario platformers.

Now that we get them constantly, sometime multiple a year, as well as 3D brilliance like SM3DL and SMG2, people complain about it.

We won't.

Because they're all basically the same game.

The levels are completely different each time. That's what actually matters. Graphics and power-ups are just fluff.

Have you actually played SM3DL? The future of Mario is bright.
