It encourages you to not rush and take your time. It wants you to take in the aesthetic and the art-style, which was different from 2D platformers before it including Mario, Sonic and even DK
It implemented a more forgiving playstyle and you can get by with little to no powerups.
It introduced collectathon elements in 2D platforming (yes, there were things TO collect in previous 2D platformers, but it's cranked up to 11 in Yoshi's Island)
Out of the 8 original franchises, it sits at 6th in sales, meaning it's not immediately considered on the chopping block
I know it's not the most merits of any franchise, but it does have some merits not tied to Mario...
