In light of recent events, particularly Annie's discovery of the three stars, as well as her goal of finding all the stars on Super Mario Galaxy, it's clear that she is the far more capable player of said game.

Now while you may argue that since Topher has defeated Bowser and that garners him superiority, I contend that it was an easy out. Rather than discovering all the stars and completely beating the game, he chose to allow Bowser to still have control over some of the stars despite his defeat, thus letting Bowser still have considerable power in the Mario universe. Had the stars all been rescued, I contend that Bowser would've been easier to beat given Luigi's appearance and also the experience gained would've made the battle much easier. Seeing that Annie is currently obtaining all the stars, she is simultaneously increasing her own power while decreasing Bowser's by means of taking back his source of power.

Take THAT. :)

The FEW stars that Annie has discovered were only facilitated by the fact that she has been on Xmas break for over a week, while Topher has been working like a dog ever since Christmas! If Topher had had time, his star count would be through the roof!

Also, the significance of beating Bowser cannot be underestimated. The Princess is safe. All is as it should be in the Mushroom Kingdom.

I wholeheartedly understand the importance of saving the Princess from Bowser (although one cannot help but wonder if she just allows herself to be kidnapped for the attention she gains from it). However, is not the point of the game also to restore the universe, the method by which is to retrieve all the stars and restore power to the station that weird chick lives in? Which is the more noble task--saving royalty that has been repeatedly kidnapped by the same perpetrator for over 20 years (she looks good for having such a long career...prolly gets a weekly injection of botox or something) or restoring unity to the entire universe? I don't think I need to point out the true answer...

And as far as Annie's "extra time" giving her an advantage, this is a complete fallacy. First of all, her Christmas break has been spent on far more worthwhile tasks. Lego Star Wars, for example, as well as extensive knitting. Not once has she played Super Mario Galaxy with her time off. In fact, she has accomplished the task of recovering more stars working essentially MORE hours than Topher with far more difficult "customers," so to speak.

Take that to the bank, Mehlhoff. :)

Who discovered the flying mario stars first, eh? EH?

I also think I get points for the fact that often time you pass the controller to me when you get frustrated. :)
