YMMV: New Super Mario Bros.
Contested Sequel: To the originalfour(or five)Super Mario Bros.games. It didn't get this reaction too bad until Nintendo announced a third and fourth game to be released in the same year. Many people began to deride Nintendo for over-relying on the sub-series, if not Mario as a whole, derisively being compared to the oversaturation of the Call of Duty series. For reference, New Super Mario Bros. launched in 2006, and in less than a decade has now accumulated more installments and DLC than series that have been around since the N64 era, like Paper Mario or Super Smash Bros.. Though it hasn't stopped each game from being a commercial success, and while the critical reception has remained positive, there are still plenty of fans who feel the games are too similar to one another.
