By Hick
Sometimes a game comes along that the majority thinks is great. It gets high review scores and some refer to it as a game changer. A game that will change the future of the industry forever, but it seems there is always room for hate. In regards to Super Mario 64, I'm that person, because I hate Super Mario 64!...
