As someone who generally prefers the classic games to the others: it looks fun. The controls look fluid (and apparently they are, according to people who played the game) and I want to explore the open world. I like how the game looks graphically, and the story is intriguing to me. I'm excited to see them try something different, after 4 games in a row with the same gameplay style and level design philosophy. I'm also one of those people who thinks Super Mario Oddysey is one of the best Mario games ever made, so make of that what you will. At the same time, in my opinion, I shouldn't HAVE to justify why I'm excited for this game. Just as people don't have to justify NOT being excited for this game.
