    1. Don’t you have any issue’s with the fact that the series never really evolved from its 2d donkey kong country form.
      To me Donkey Kong Country 1,2,3 was even bigger than Mario on the Snes , the n64 didn’t really do it for me compared to Banjo Kazooi and after that they haven’t really done much with the franchise in my opinion.

      Donkey Kong country deserves the same greatness as Mario Galaxy , Mario 3d World and Mario Odyssey in my opinion. I’m sure games like tropical freeze are fun to play but we’ve already seen that in the 90’s.

      One could argue that Mario Odyssey is still the same as Mario 64 but it evolved from there unlike Donkey kong who is still stuck in the snes era.

      I got this issue with most Nintendo franchises btw besides Mario,Zelda, Mario Kart , Smash Bros (not sure don’t really like it, so rarely played it) , Metroid (wich has been 10 years already since the last great game)

      Yoshi , Pokemon , Wave Race , Star Fox , Pilotwings , Kirby , Kid Icarus , Golden Sun , F-zero and probally some others never really made the transition from the snes/n64 to the modern era, most aren’t really used or modernized on home console. Not to mention the lack of new franchises. The snes was the golden age of nintendo when it comes to amazing new characters and games.
