Must've been some ending since the Hugo games weren't too plot heavy to begin with.

The ending is literally Hugo saying to his girlfriend that they should go home and relax after all the crap they've both been through, but then the girlfriend says something to the effect of "No, I have to go do stuff. Maybe we'll get together, I don't know." Hugo deserves better than that.

Can you at least throw chop in Nitemare 3D?

No, but at least you don't have to navigate a minuscule bridge with pixel-perfect precision so that you don't get your matches wet.

I hated Nightmare 3D.  All that hard work, only to NOT get the girl.  What a crock of horse s***!

Yeah, that's the first time I can remember playing a game and really hating the ending. It's possible to have a good downer ending in a game; the original Doom's ending was a downer if ever there was one, but it was a sequel hook for Doom 2. I guess you could argue that Hugo's girlfriend going off on her own was a sequel hook as well, potentially setting up a game where you play as her, but as it is, the series ended right there, with no sequel in sight. And honestly, I couldn't care less if there were a sequel regardless, as the Hugo series had already gone off the rails by transitioning from Adventure to FPS. The genre change was such a massive step backward. One of the only other examples of that happening that I can think of would be the Metroid games, mostly 2D sidescrollers and 3D FPS Adventures suddenly getting...a pinball game. Why? Why does the Metroid franchise need a pinball entry? It boggles my mind that anyone thought that would be a good idea.

That's exactly what it is. Samus is in her morph ball form, and you just knock her around the playing field with your paddles and hope for the best.

You mean Sonic wasn't the first to suffer that fate?

Would you have enjoyed Super Mario Bros. if it ended like this?

No it's great. After 3 games of rescuing each other Hugo and his girlfriend  (what was her name?) can't summon the enthusiasm for surviving another horror scenario. She accepts this is there life now, a neverending series of abductions and horror tropes. Peach should've come to this realization ages ago.

Hugo's girlfriend's name is Penelope.

I guess you could say that it's a kid-friendly "horror" series (only the first and fourth ones were really horror-themed), so it doesn't need to break new ground with those kinds of tropes. Nitemare 3D was the darkest one by virtue of being a first-person shooter, and even then enemies morphed into flower pots when you "killed" them, to put things into perspective. One could argue that Penelope was being smart by getting away from Hugo, but of course that doesn't mean we have to like it. And for my money, when it comes to my favorite characters from the Mario Bros. franchise, Peach is down at the bottom, along with Toad. Stupid mushroom abomination.

I like Peach. *shrugs* That could be because I like how the RPGs like Mario&Luigi, Paper Mario and Super Mario RPG handled her character. Then again, any semblance of a likable personality and/or character growth from how the character started out as flat (which is why I, for better or worse, like Squire Graham a lot is because he's given some sort of personality at all in a canonical game and it actually made me care about him for once), is good enough for me.

I hate Peach because in the earlier days she was a MacGuffin/Damsel in Distress. Then I found out she attacked enemies by crying in one of the other games and I flashed back to Valanice crying in KQ7 and...well...

Eh, *shrugs* to be fair, from what I hear of Super Princess Peach, she was the only one in that game who had any semblance of control over her emotions so it was up to her to save the land. That's what TV Tropes tells me iirc.

I was always more of a fan of badass girls myself.  Like Princess Leia and Elastigirl- after getting some sense talked into her by Edna, of course.

Main reason why I became a Cognition fan.
