I Finally Played Yoshi’s Island

The most I knew about Yoshi’s Island was the fact that most (if not all) people who play it find baby Mario’s crying extremely aggravating.  In fact, I knew there were several Yoshi games out there, and I didn’t even know which one it was that included such a…unique feature.  (I was mainly confused about…
