Yeah, actually.

I feel a lot of dislike towards Donkey Kong 64 would be softened if they just have banana bunches.

Most peope would rather collect fewer, but more worthful, items.

Not me personally because I am chemically addicted to collecting literal hundreds of objects.

TBH tooie would have been better if they had put more notes in each level. Or at least they could have not wasted most the 16 note bundles in every level level by putting them in groups of 4-6.

Nuts and Bolts (the best BK game) handled notes the best by giving them different values and actually spreading them around the levels.

Seeing the insta-swap ROM-hack in action really makes me realize how hard Rare fumbled the bag on what could have been one of the most revered 3D platformers of all time. Imagine combining move sets to solve puzzles in the over world - Donkey roll into a Lankey long jump carried by a Diddy jetpack that finishes with a Tiny arrow switch all in fluid motion (That opens up a door to a Chunky-focused puzzle etc.). Would allow for a metric ton of things to collect while addressing backtracking complaints and add a brand new level of skill and finesse to the gameplay loop.

Exactly! Tooie levels feel like Mario levels without the coins. And I think I'd be a lot less likely to get lost in Terrydactyl Land if I could see all the notes I hadn't collected yet. It doesn't have to be 100 per level! But the way Tooie did it, they may as well have removed notes all together. The treble clef was the only collectible that felt like it was placed deliberately and served a purpose.

Turning notes into currency was a good idea, but they didn't go far enough. For one thing, they should've been infinite and expendable (dunno if y'all noticed, but Jamjars doesn't actually take your notes when you buy a move, he just checks if you have enough). And they should pay for Mumbo and Humba's services, eliminating the need for Glowbos.

Come to think of it, Banana Coins are finite in DK64, too. And so are quills in Yooka-Laylee. What's with these devs and finite money?

doesn't really seem like money if they don't take it from you. it's just a mcguffin number
