A few weeks ago, I was playing Super Mario Galaxy with a friend and asked if it was still Bowser who kidnapped the same princess. He said “yes, you don’t play these games for the story.” While this is true, how tough would it be for Nintendo to make a new bad guy or give another reason for Mario to go on an adventure? Using the “Princess has been kidnapped” bit gets very tiresome and doesn’t excite me at all. Sure, you play for the game-play, but without a good story, what’s the point? When you beat it, you know that the idiot princess will only be kidnapped again by the big, toothy dinosaur.

In today’s comic, I just wanted to show that while Luigi is never the focus of the game, he must be frustrated with Mario repeatedly going to save the princess.
