Title: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: Smasher on May 23, 2012, 02:03:42 PM
there might have been a few threads like this before for specific things, but I don't think I've seen one for the series as a whole, so...

just say some opinions about whatever in the Mario series that not many people seem to agree with. this can also apply to Donkey Kong, Yoshi, Wario, etc.

I've got quite a few that most members don't seem to agree with:

-Daisy is the best female character in the series.
-Birdo and Waluigi are good characters. (the latter might not be as unpopular as the other but I do see multiple people dislike him so)
-I don't like the Koopalings, Luigi, or Rosalina.
-Bobbery is my least favorite partner in PM2.
-Mario Kart DS is the best Mario Kart game.
-SMB2 is better than SMB3.
-the Olympic Games can be fun.
-Dixie Kong is better than Diddy.
-Goomba's Greedy Gala is my favorite board in MP4.

I probably have more, but I can't think of them right now.

Oh, "boring and generic" mooks like Koopa Troopa and Shy Guy are awesome too and I'm glad they get to be playable.

This.

Also:

-MKDS was best Mario Kart
-American/European SMB2 is better than Japanese SMB2.
-I don't want to see a Mario/Sonic platforming crossover.
-I disliked the P-Wing from SMB3.
-I find Yoshi's voice one of the most annoying in the series.

-Daisy is the best female character in the series. Nah, that would be NONE of them I haven't been impressed with any of the Mario females.
-Birdo and Waluigi are good characters. (the latter might not be as unpopular as the other but I do see multiple people dislike him so) Birdo, nah (I don't loathe her tough). Waluigi, definitely.
-I don't like the Koopalings, Luigi, or Rosalina. They're all okay. Luigi is great in my opinion, but EQUAL with Mario.
-Bobbery is my least favorite partner in PM2. He's not my least favorite, but not my fave. That would be Vivian.
-Mario Kart DS is the best Mario Kart game. IMO, Double Dash. It had the best battle modes. Bob-omb Battle, anyone? Plus no snaking, or at least not to DS's extent.
-SMB2 is better than SMB3. I'm going to have to agree with Shoe here. SMB2 was just laaaaaaaame.
-the Olympic Games can be fun. Haven't played, so no opinion.
-Dixie Kong is better than Diddy. I prefer Diddy, but there's nothing wrong with Dixie.
-Goomba's Greedy Gala is my favorite board in MP4. Haven't played, so no opinion.

-I don't like the Koopalings, Luigi, or Rosalina. They're all okay. Luigi is great in my opinion, but EQUAL with Mario. Mario sucks
-SMB2 is better than SMB3. I'm going to have to agree with Shoe here. SMB2 was just laaaaaaaame. No I like SMB2 (American and European) but SMB3 was at least 8 times better
-the Olympic Games can be fun. Haven't played, so no opinion.
-Dixie Kong is better than Diddy. I prefer Diddy, but there's nothing wrong with Dixie. Wrong

-I don't like Bowser Jr., Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong or Toad.
-I like playable mooks.
-I don't care too much about Nintendo's recent spin-off rosters.
-SMG2 is better than SMG, rosalina fanboys/girls (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE).

I'm just going to say that I appreciated SMG more because it was more difficult than SMG2, for the most part.
Rosalina is literally the best character in the whole Mario series. Whoever disagrees is encouraged to get out.
She appeared in one game (not counting SMG2, which was minor, and MKW, which was also minor). It was kind of cool, but not amazing.

Tell me why she is good.

Her personality is the coolest of the game, she's the prettiest character and her voice acting is simply the best (except in Mario Kart 7).

Gonna go back to Paper Mario for a bit, but out of Count Bleck's minions, O'Chunks is my favorite since his personality is akin to the warrior type with honor and loyalty. I prefer that over Mimi's violent temper/bratty attitude and Mr. L's "I'm superior to everyone else".

Yeah sometimes I see people whine about a game's roster in Marioverse as if it was just as important to them as a Smash Bros. roster. In a Mario Sports/Party/Kart/Etc. game, It's just not that big of a deal.

No how many games have Lakitu's been in the answer a lot How many fans do they have the answer a lot you can't call something under rated just because it's not playable a lot that's flawed logic.

I consider them to be more of a "Take That" than a reference.

No reference is better than a bad one imo.

I don't see why they were called ninjas when the only ninja-esque thing they did was making Mario fall into the Bob-Omb jail cell which ended up HELPING Mario.

End rant.


I wonder if anybody besides me like the Nokis. I always thought they were an interesting species.

Wendy's a brat, but I'm coming to like her a little
Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time sucks
MKWii is a good, but not the best, spin-off

No original partners? Those Pixls aren't original?

And TTYD also had original partners.

Goombella, Koops, Flurrie, Vivian, Bobbery, Ms. Mowz, etc. these guys have never been in any other games before.

The thing is, there is nobody who holds these opinions.

You're hearing these opinions from a large group of people (ie all Mario fans) and assuming that since some member of the group holds opinion A and some member holds opinion B, there must be some person who holds opinion A and opinion B simultaneously. Even though a lot of people use this kind of logic to make a lot of different points, it's fallacious; there is no implication that a person holding both opinions A and B must exist.

Honestly, I think I'm the only gamer in the whole world who actually has enough of an open mind and skills to use Goombario and Goombella properly. They're often seen as the uesless party members.
I like them both. I find their Tattle and Multi-Bonk abilities to be pretty useful. Plus, after Goombella's Ultra Ranked, she's capable of giving Mario an extra attack turn.

I find Goombella more useful than Goombario. I even owned Rawk Hawk using Goombella.

I think Goombario is the useless one, if he's such a "big fan" of Mario, then why he doesn't have a move that increases Mario's attack by atleast one? I've always been wondering.

Depends. I don't like games when they're as easy as Galaxy 1. I like them with the difficulty of Galaxy 2 (I'm not talking about just beating the game. I'm talking about completing it to 100%: 9999 Star Bits and all 242 Stars). That is enough.

It's not the 2D games' difficulty what I don't like, it's the gameplay. It's uncomfortable for me, and I don't like it. I like games where I can explore wide areas, and 2D games don't allow me to do that.

Oh, and btw, Goombella and Goombario are great.

Yeah, both Galaxies had 2D parts, but they weren't the majority of the game. It's strange, because now that I think about it, Super Paper Mario was mostly 2D and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I never understood why Partners in Time got so much hate and tends to be considered the "worst of the M&L series". It's my favorite one, and Superstar Saga is my least favorite (still a very great game though).
I guess maybe it's just that I like the safety of having 4 party members? :p

Partners in Time was also much more lenient compared to Superstar Saga, especially with counterattacking and also liked the gimmicks when the babies separated from the adults, like sending them up high and turning them into Baby Cakes. I also liked Bros. Items more, for some reason.

I haven't played Dream Team yet though since I don't have a 3DS, so I'm not sure if Partners in Time would maintain its position if I do play Dream Team. =P

I like Koopa Kid more than Bowser Jr. for some reason, and I also think that Brighton & Twila are pretty cool characters! I prefer Twila though.

I initially hated her at first but now I really like her in a Wario-related way. I don't genuinely hate her and I hope she appears in future Mario Karts. Honey Queen is just a really underrated character. Poor thing gets hated on even when she's a new unique female racer that people had been asking for.

- I don't think Super Mario World is anywhere near as good as people think it is and doesn't appear to have aged well at all. Everything people liked about it (secrets, riding Yoshi, etc) are all pretty standard now and I also hate how you went from being able to fly in SMB3 to just being able to glide. I also am pretty biased against 16bit-style graphics with the exception of the cel-shading of DKC and the hand-drawn style of YI.

Here are some of my opinions that might be seen as unpopular.

-I also like Baby Daisy
-Birdo is an enjoyable character
-Wario's Gold Mine and Maple Treeway are bad Mario Kart Wii tracks
-Super Mario 64 is overrated and the DS version is far better (*runs and hides*)

This is a little embarrassing to say but, I didn't find the voice acting in SMS to be as bad as everyone says it is. It's far from good, but I don't think it's THAT bad.

I didn't mind it either. Though, Bowser's voice was...LOL

- sunshine's gameplay and bosses are really neat
- i. hate. goomba characters.
- generic enemies in the spin offs are kind of dumb ( i like boo though)

-I love Retro Tracks in Mario Kart, and I hope they'll keep remaking tracks, even if it means re-remaking
-Super Mario 3D Land, New Super Mario Bros. 2 and New Super Mario Bros. U are way too short, with piece of cake final bosses (SM3DL Bowser took me about 10 tries, NSMB2 Bowser took 3 tries, NSMBU Bowser only took one)
-I hated Paper Mario: Sticker Star
-WarioWare: D.I.Y. has much more potential (why can't we make microgames involving dragging objects?)
-I don't really hate Peach
-I don't like Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
-I couldn't care less about Geno appearing in SSBU/SSB3DS
-Out of all the Kongs, I only like Dixie, Diddy and Cranky

I just don't understand how this can be possible. I understand people can like that game, and that's fine, but saying it's better than Paper Mario or Thousand-Year Door is just nonsensical to me.

Exactly, which is always unfair to compare something like say, Rayman Legends, to Super Mario Bros. today. But saying stuff like "Super Mario Bros. 3/Super Mario World is the best game of all time" is baloney. There's a clear cut difference between the quality of a game, while taking aging into account than revolutionizing gaming and setting a precedent for other games to follow.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: Amphituber on October 06, 2013, 02:36:17 PM
So the quality of a game is determined by how much it changes gaming formulas? I would disagree with that.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: Baby Luigi on October 06, 2013, 02:41:20 PM
No, I said they're two completely different views on how to see a game and that's that.

Super Mario Bros. 3 is looked upon with fondness mainly BECAUSE it was good for its time and it was a breakthrough. Today, calling it the best game of all time is stupid. It's like saying the Wright Flyer is much better than an F-35. The Wright Flyer WAS important, but it's not the best piece of technology we have today. In fact, to coin ANYTHING "the best game of all time" is really stupid because, first, not only technology is getting better along with games and second, you CAN'T compare a platformer to an MMORPG

I personally think that a really good game should be fun to play no matter how old/new it is.

A really good music will still be good 20 years later, a good movie will still be good in 20 years, I think it is the same thing for a video game.

Daisy should've been given green eyes.

Variety is good, yet all the main human characters with irises (i.e. not just dots like Wario) are blue-eyed, unless I'm mistaken. You need to get into the WarioWare series before you get recurring brown-eyed human characters, Dixie Kong's the only green-eyed character I can name off the top of my head (plus Queen Merelda's intermediate aqua colour), and you can only tell Birdo has purple eyes if you zoom in (same with Waluigi's grey eyes). If you exclude glowing eyes, red doesn't even have a good showing.

Plus, green eyes just suit her, imho.

You can simply think that Bowser Jr is a revised version, while Nintendo didn't seriously explain who Koopa Kids are. Koopa Kid"s" are somewhat generic and don't fit in recurring enemies.

Because he was likely created by Hudson Soft, not Nintendo. Same reason characters like Ballyhoo haven't returned. Nintendo doesn't like to use characters they didn't create. It's a shame, but it's why the Mario cast is so stale now...
I don't think that makes sense. THEY ARE ALL Nintendo characters. If Nintendo/core directors have ideas in how to use characters, they should play a more proactive role by creating characters suitable in all games, or forbidding some characters to be recurring.

But still maybe Ballyhoo is an one-game-exclusive host. The even worse thing is their choice of the next host.

Maybe if I said they should go and change her eye colour now you could make that comparison, but I said "should have", i.e. back when they decided to make her recurring and expanded the tiny, basic artwork of SML, they should have given her green eyes - right from the start.

pretty much the same reason for me, plus i just enjoy rpgs so much.

As much as i love tennis and platformers, i just feel like the rpgs are so much more suited for me and ive just enjoyed them the most.

Plus turn based action commands are a great thing, and i dont see them used much outside of mario rpgs.

I love Mario RPGs, but stating which series is my favorite is like saying what's my favorite flavor of pie. Sometimes, I prefer pumpkin. Sometimes, I feel like a nut. And I want apple at other times. Same thing with Mario games.

That is true how Mario RPGs's battles are more interactive when it comes to dodging enemy attacks and performing certain moves.

I don't think RPGs are overrated, or they deserve to be. The main problem most of them have are being still too close to a SMB formula story that don't include other main characters or surprising interactions between them. If Nintendo can solve it, they can go to another level as the best part of Mario franchise.

I think the first Mario Party games are actually the worst. They're not fun compared to some of the others. A lot of the minigames are either impossible to control (all the control-stick-spinning games from MP1) or are just boring (Bumper Balls). The boards are very similar, and there is WAY too much luck involved. The boo spaces, anyone? The entire game can change just from one space. I honestly think the ONLY reason people say the N64 Mario Party games are the best is because of nostalgia.

What. Well, I respect your opinion, but I'll explain why so many people think they're the best to you, and why I disagree with most of what you said:

-They have that "crazy" factor. The mini-games were fast-paced, and you had to have good reflexes (Mario Party 1 and 2's Hot Rope Jump, 2's Look Away, 3's All Fired Up, The Beat Goes On, Messy Memory and Toadstool Titan, for example). From 4 on, the turns took FOREVER and most mini-games weren't very dynamic.
-You had to have skill (3's Awful Tower and Frigid Bridges, for example). In 3, if you wanted to win, you needed to have an actual strategy when playing in the board.
-Boo was a game-changer. It could completely change the game from one turn to another. This was made for balance, so players in the last place could actually win somehow. Chance Time was implemented for the same reason (although I hated it).
-The mini-games weren't impossible to control. Only 1's Control-Stick-rotating mini-games, like you said (good thing they got rid of them; those blisters were sure annoying).
-Donkey Kong was playable.
-Bumper Balls boring? But that is one of the best mini-games ever!! If you want to talk about boring mini-games let's talk about 7's Cointagious or 8's Rudder Madness.
-The boards aren't similar at all :| I really don't know where you got that from, but to each their own, I guess.
-Well, luck is involved in practically every game. 1, 2 and 3 were actually the ones that depended less on luck. 7, 8 and 9 are especially horrible in this aspect.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: Purple Yoshi on November 21, 2013, 10:41:43 PM
I just don't understand why people attack the newer Mario Party games for doing things that the older games ALWAYS did, if not even worse. Mario Party 9, I understand why people wouldn't like the linearity, but at least they were TRYING to do something different.

Well, sadly, in the videogame industry, trying is not enough. It's like when you expect your favorite artist to put new music out, and when they finally do, you don't like it, but you still buy their album because they "tried". Personally, I found 9 awfully boring. I was yawning the whole time while playing it, and never really hooked me. The game is slow, the music is boring, the mini-games are mediocre, and the board play is horrible. Maybe it's because I'm used to the fast pacing of the first three and to its dynamic gameplay, I don't know.

OBJECTION!

(Ok I wanted to do that for the first time LOL, but anyways)

How is 1 less reliant on luck? Mario Party 1's Party Mode is LITERALLY a board game with practically no control; mini-games can only do so much. You don't control your roll or what dice block you get (well actually you can disable certain dice blocks but ehhhh). If you get hindered by an event (i.e. choosing the Bowser Seed on Peach's Birthday Cake or getting Bowser in Mario's Rainbow Castle), you don't have many ways to work your way back up.

The amount Boo steals is random each time, and for me, I feel like it's rather bias... I swear everytime I use it, only 7 coins are stolen but when CPUs use it I have 15 coins stolen lol

Then there's things like BASH AND CASH, Bowl Over, and Crane Game which are TERRIBLY horrid mini-games, especially in Party Mode.

IMO, the luck factor in Mario Party 1 is just as bad, if not worse than Mario Party 9's luck factor.

I feel 2 somewhat fixed Mario Party 1's lack of control due to items, but it was still very limited. Thankfully they also removed things like Bash and Cash... Boo just seemed to be even more bias here.

I can say 3 did very well and deserves the praise it gets. Great items, great mini-games, (mostly) great boards.

4 & 5 were sadly very dull but at least there was a decent amount of control. Plus I liked 4's board events like the Lotto.

What I said with 3 also applies with Mario Party 6. But I love the items, mini-games and boards even more.

7... I swear Bowser time added a huge luck factor and was just bull*bleep*. The Party mode would've actually been enjoyable if this mechanic wasn't in making someone be punished over nothing every 5 turns.

8 was dull, but you had a good amount of control and I can't say it's easy to get screwed over unless you're on King Boo's Haunted Hideaway or Bowser's Warped Orbit. Or that Bandit is being a jerk in Koopa's Tycoon Town. =P

9 was simply bad and luck played a huge role like in 1. But I found most of the (Free for all) mini-games pretty good.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: Purple Yoshi on November 21, 2013, 11:51:03 PM
Exactly! People keep saying it was a straight downward spiral from 3, but that really wasn't true. From 4-9 some were better, while some were worse.

Also, did anyone realise they've been releasing them a lot less frequently now? I'm glad, personally. It means we don't get sick of them.

-Well, luck is involved in practically every game. 1, 2 and 3 were actually the ones that depended less on luck. 7, 8 and 9 are especially horrible in this aspect.
I will agree with you a ton on games like MP3 (Which is my most favorite Mario Party game of all time). But MP1... I'm sorry, I grew up with the original 3 MP games, and even I have to admit MP1 is cover in globs of luck. It's all dependent on the Dice Block, no items, nothing to really give you an edge. You can do amazing in the Mini-Games, and still lose at the end because of a Boo Star steal or whatever the case might be. Also, all I have to say is Bash'N'Cash... the worse Mini-Game in history. I swear, that game only pops up for me every time I play...

I still like MP1, but the game's luck is a huge factor. MP2 has luck being involved, but at a decent amount where it's not too much.
________________________________

Note, I'm not saying I don't agree with your point. MP7/MP8/MP9 all do have their extremely annoying luck involvements... to MP7's Bowser Time, MP8's existance (seriously), and MP9 going back to a MP1 style of 100% luck. Though all Mario Partys have their enjoyable moments.

4 & 5 were sadly very dull but at least there was a decent amount of control. Plus I liked 4's board events like the Lotto.
I'll agree with you on MP5... MP5 is so dang boring lmao. I can't play through a game of it without falling asleep.

MP4's boards are kinda dull, but I love MP4 to bits. It was so much like MP3 bar the Mini/Mega system LOL But that game was still very fun and remains one of my favorite GameCube games to this day.

Can I ask what was wrong with MP8? The minigames were really stupid and most were just 'waggle to win', but I still had fun with it. The boards all felt unique and had different ways of getting stars, the candy system meant the items were almost all useful and you didn't have to land on another space for it to take effect, and there wasn't that much bull*bleep* in terms of luck-based events.

To me, it was the absolutely boring mini-games. I mean, Rudder Madness is bull*bleep*, and several more are. You had to do basically the same thing in most of the mini-games, which was shaking the Wiimote as fast as you could. The music was also very bad. The boards (aside from Koopa's Tycoon Town) were boring. The turns took a LIFETIME. The character roster was ridiculous (I mean, Blooper? Come on). McBallyhoo was stupid and extremely annoying (that HA HA HA!!!!!!! of his... I wanted to behead him). The graphics were mediocre and it didn't support widescreen, which is a sin for a game belonging to a seventh-generation console.

I said why I'm not fond of Mario Party 8 in another topic a while ago so here:

What was so bad about Mario Party 8?

- Very slow gameplay
- Delayed/unresponsive controls (Flip the Chimp is the perfect example of this and a few others -__-)
- Most boards were pretty boring (Shy Guy's Perplex Express was actually good though)
- Item system was bad and some candies were unnecessary
- Barely any good mini-games (I really did not like the idea of the same mini-games being used but in different categories...)
- Host was weird
- Theme was bleh
- Music was boring
- Somewhat more luck based compared to other Mario Parties (except for 1 and 9, those were like THE most luck-based :p)

That's unpopular? Then how do you explain so many people whining and complaining about only wanting to play as Donkey Kong in the Country series? It's because of them that characters like Diddy and Dixie will most likely never be playable outside of multi-player again. At least not anytime soon.

Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 can't boast a soundtrack where you hear an actual orchestra in every track. So, yeah, there's no reason to drool over it, unlike what some people do. There are too many MIDI songs, I'd imagine.

No

It'll be sexist if the women are scantily dressed or have unrealistic womanly proportions. Besides, we have a natural tendency to run slower than men (that's why we separate women and men during Olympics) and they ARE wearing dresses, as another poster pointed out (although they can keep up in the Mario Party games). This slow running thing I think is actually just for gameplay means.

Melee is better than Brawl because Donkey Kong getting killed sounds more satisfying, and the level 9s are more fun to play with.

Oh, I can wavedash and L-cancel and Mario's much better.

There.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: Javelin on December 02, 2013, 09:56:50 AM
brawl's major advantages over melee are a larger character selection and a larger stage/music selection, along with those cool cutscenes from the subspace emissary (say what you will about the actual gameplay in that but the cutscenes were awesome)

also i thought wavedashing was a stupid exploit in melee, so i'm personally glad that was removed.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: LeftyGreenMario on December 02, 2013, 01:24:25 PM
Melee has a better gameplay foundation, and that's what counts the most for me. While Kirby sucks in Melee, all of my other mains are better (Mario, Link, Fox). Plus, again, the level 9s are amusing; and Pokeballs, Bob-ombs, Motion Sensor bombs, Warpstars, Freezies, and Screw Attacks are much better. Plus, we got the Parasol.

I don't see how wavedashing personally affected you. You can use it, you don't have to use it, you can tell other people not to use it. I do think wave-dashing is akin to snaking, though; both techniques end up breaking your shoulder buttons. Wavedashing is nowhere near obnoxious as tripping.

Wavedashing will affect you if you play competitively, which also means you'll need to spend in that tournament money to replace your controller.

If you prefer Brawl over Melee, it's more likely that you didn't enter the competitive scene. After all, Brawl has a laughable competitive environment.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: Captain America on December 02, 2013, 03:17:43 PM
I'll just say this. As a non competitive player, I love both games. Both have their strengths and weaknesses.

One way I like Melee more than Brawl is because it's a much faster game. I don't care about all that wave dashing nonsense though. But still, I enjoy the fast-paced and fun to watch gameplay.

On the other hand, Brawl has more stages, characters, music, and extra features.

So I think Project M is right for me then.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: Timmy on December 02, 2013, 04:24:39 PM
I actually didn't mind Brawl being slower-paced than Melee. =P

Although I guess I have some bias for why I prefer Brawl over Melee; I was only 3 when Melee was released, and I was 10 when Brawl was released, so I had a much better understanding of Brawl. Don't get me wrong though, I absolutely loved playing Melee with my siblings growing up.

In Brawl, I actually prefer the game being defensive (especially the airdodging) and I actually liked the low hitstun since I could survive a LOT longer. I also prefer Ness a LOT more in Brawl than Melee; mainly cause doing an aerial while Double Jumping no longer drags him down. Though I still find the Grab Release on Ness dumb, despite his buff overall.

So basically after playing Brawl, I can no longer play Melee. Oh well.
Though I will say... playing Brawl competitively has been one of the best choices I made, since I made 2 best friends out of it and got to do what I love doing best. :)

I still miss my Melee Peach horribly though. dang it Brawl, why'd you nerf her? :/

In the end though, I don't mind if you prefer Melee over Brawl; everyone has their own opinion and we'd have to agree to disagree. =P

Brawl mods is a huge plus. It's the only reason I'd ever play this game.

Timmy, Ness has been buffed in Brawl, so I guess that's why you enjoy Brawl more. I am a naturally defensive player, so Brawl's change suits me. Still, I like offensive options, not poke wars, and having the majority of my mains receive a major nerfhammer (especially Mario) doesn't help at all.

That, and it's the most overused tune from both Galaxy game. Why can't they use Buoy Base, Ghostly Galaxy, or even Good Egg?
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: Baby Luigi on December 05, 2013, 03:31:29 PM
It's overused, yes, but it's still a good theme

It's not brainfart noise like the Underground Theme

It's akin to eating cookies for a meal every day. You do get tired of it.

The underground theme is balls, so I agree.

Well, this is the first time it was covered/remix since, I dunno, I think Super Mario Galaxy 2. Hell, even Mario Tennis Open used the Observatory theme and the Good Egg theme for the Galaxy court instead.

I still think you're justifying your anger towards Champion's Road by hating the song simply because it is played there.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: LeftyGreenMario on December 05, 2013, 03:38:43 PM
Gusty Garden is played much more times, though. I think covers of the theme are in Mario & Sonic games and in two of the "hard" levels from Galaxy 2 and this one. Not sure about 3D Land.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: Baby Luigi on December 05, 2013, 03:43:55 PM
Yeah but you still enjoy fan covers of songs that are covered a lot of times already eg the Super Mario Bros. theme. Well bad example, the Super Mario Bros. theme is a classic. I understand disliking Super Mario World's theme since it's literally the ONLY song that plays in Super Mario World, not counting World themes of course.

It's not so much the course layout that bugs me. I love Rainbow Road. But the rainbow theme will become tiring and boring. Variety makes things nice. That's why you'll never see 4 circuits in one cup.

Since Mario Kart 7 broke the trend of not including Rainbow Roads in retro courses, there is less chance a Rainbow Cup will appear.

I don't hate anyone for his beliefs. What I do hate is that people telling me to go to hell because I like Mario or they try to change my opinion and depict Yoshi stabbing Mario and directing it at me.

You can love Yoshi all you want, but if you're the friendliest person in the world, I will be friendly as well. After all, there is a girl at high school who loved Yoshi and all I did was let her play around with my Yoshi plushies and hug them. That stuff makes me happy.

Now, I may sound like a hypocrite by stuffing Mario down your throats, but I really do get along with all kinds of fans. Who I don't get along with are any Luigi or Yoshi fans that call Mario a fat b*stard and depict Mario suffering. I'm glad that I haven't met any of them here.

I like my Mario being evil because it gives him the excuse for him to mercilessly torture Wario whenever I control him.

I used to hate Mario for how everyone in-game loves him despite his bloody rampages through the Koopa Troop and his vicious Amazee Dayzee level grinding and whatnot. Then I mellowed out. Now I think of him as a nice guy who loves his brother, his princess, his kingdom and all his friends, and who will stop at nothing to defend them against the forces of evil, no matter the risk to himself or the cost to his enemies. However, while he's certainly not malevolent about it, conflict and competitiveness is in his blood: if all the evil in the world suddenly disappeared, while he'd be glad no one needs saving, he'd quickly grow restless and dissatisfied with having nothing left to fight. And he's still a brutal hurricane of destruction if you're fighting on the wrong side - or even if you're simply in the wrong place at the wrong time when he goes into his one-track-minded "save Peach" mode.

Yep, his old rivalry with Wario is definitely a good example of Mario's natural hot-blooded-ness.

That sounds pretty dark-Mario looks like he's having fun when he's adventuring.
I agree that he enjoys his adventures - I did say he'd be unhappy if he suddenly had nothing to fight. He's not some grim-faced soldier or anything, he's a lively little firebrand.

The Somnom puzzles in Dream Team weren't that hard.
I've always thought that the bricks Mario breaks in SMB1 actually free the toads instead of killing them.

I remember seeing an Ask Mario post on DA about him being a hero. I think this depicts Mario the best.

Let me go back to the whole Brawl thing.

Brawl beats Melee in every category except one. The gameplay. This is why Melee is more fun than Brawl. Brawl is slow and tedious. Melee is fast paced and fun. Sure, Brawl has prettier graphics and more characters, but who cares. The reason people play Smash is because it's a fun competitive fighter. Quality over quantity as they say. Sakurai even stated that Melee was the sharpest game in the series.

Maybe, but those are pretty minor similarities, which were most likely coincidental. At least compared to Sonic: Lost World, which had several elements that were blatantly inspired by the Galaxy series.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series

Sonic Colors copying Mario Galaxy.

By the same logic Super Mario Galaxy copied Sonic Adventure 2 first. There were at least a few Gravity based levels in Space in that game too :P

Turnabout is fair play.

Yes both Colors and Lost World have similar things to Galaxy (I admit Sonic Lost World kinda takes concepts from quite a few Mario games, and I don't mean just the Yoshi's Island DLC :P Like look at the world order in comparison to the New Super Mario Bros. games and the Deadly Six could technically be the Koopa Kids of the game). But there's still plenty of differences that makes Mario Galaxy a Mario game, and Colors & Lost World a Sonic game.

Even so though, paying subtle homage to a critically acclaimed Mario game in a former rival turned friend company certainly isn't a bad thing as long as they're not doing it too often. (Like I don't know if we'll ever see the Zetis again but if we do, hopefully they'll be a little more unique then just being Sonic's equivalent of the Koopa Kids)

A very good start of current Mario RPGs but not the best game, or, a game that can be transcended IMO. After all, it's still based on a typcial SMB formula and there weren't too many exciting elements included (but it's unforgivable when some of the later games doing so.)

well it had more battle customization, looked, and sounded better.

Not to mention smrpg was pretty typical, aside from action command battle system, rpg stuff.

paper mario introduced some pretty interesting stuff with its action commands rather then the entire system being: tap button rapidly or just hiting a button before connecting an attack with the enemy and vice versa.

paper mario did that of course but there was more variation with its attacks, and generally offered different play styles.

Game was also harder than smrpg, but really mario rpgs arent hard to begin with.

i think what makes paper mario really unique is the badge system that allows you to have a completely unique playstyle. it's pretty sweet that you can make yourself a defensive tank, or an offensive powerhouse, or a status inflicter, all with the same character

-Bowser doesn't seem like a really villainous character these days.

That last one…Ever since Super Mario Sunshine, he hasn't been really portrayed as the power-hungry villain he was created to be. The only time since was the original SMG game, the one I first played. He legitimately intimidated me, and I could see how the Toads were afraid of him. But lately, Bowser seems more comical, which I don't understand. If he's so villainous, than why not portray him that way?

I do NOT want to see the Koopalings again any Mario game. I can not stand the fact that Nintendo can get away with all the boss battles in one game being the same with minor changes each time. At least Bowser Jr. has personatly and actually feels like he's Bowser son.

Admittedly, there's only little scraps of identity in the games, but the TV series gave them a bit more character and they're a veritable fountain of personalities in fanfiction. The Mario games leaving so much up to the imagination is one of my favourite aspects of the series, with the Koopalings being a good example - even if it means their canon portrayals is a bit lacking.

I thought that was pretty cool, although I would have preferred it if there was dialogue involved.

In SMB3, yes I'ld admit, but in any other appearance, no.  In SMW, the bosses were slightly different.  Iggy and Larry had to be knocked off of a platform into the lava, Wendy and Lemmy hid in pipes.  In NSMBW all their battles were drastically different from one another.  How you defeat them is the same, I'll give you that, but methods are entirely different.

Accidentally, you can also choke him to death, drown him, burn him, electrocute him, make him fall into a pit, have him land head-first in snow, drown him in quicksand, smoosh him, but Mario Party games have more options (Burnstile, Merry Poppings, Countdown Pound, I.D. U.F.O., Smash Compactor, to name a few), and since we are more sadists than masochists, it's more satisfying killing the computer player with your favorite character. Mario Party has that more "Wario torture party" feel as well. Wario also has satisfying losing animations from Mario Party 4 to Mario Party DS.

It's not all "luck-based". There is some luck involved, but clever use of items and winning the minigames will net you wins.

Unless you mean Mario Party 9 or Mario Party: Island Tour, where their items systems and minigame rewards are much worse than the previous Mario Party games.

No it isn't. I can win a game handily, provided it's Mario Party 2-DS.

However, you can rig the game to make it more in your favor. You can give yourself a 9-star boost. Plus, in Mario Party 4 exclusively, you can actually turn on and off minigame occurrences (thereby omitting luck-based minigames) via Custom Pack (by creating one in Minigame Mode). Finally, you can change the controller settings for a certain character so you can force Wario to deny Stars or have him buy crappy items or have him use items at inopportune times. Or, you can control your opponents so when they use a Star/Coin-stealing item, they use it on Wario.

Even without a star handicap I can secure a solid victory. Just check my competition in a screenshot of Mario Party 2. This is in a 50 turn match.

So, I can see why Mario Party 4 is one of your favourites!

Mario Party 6 is, actually.

But Mario Party 4, with its option to actually choose which minigames to occur or not, is unprecedented and never happened again. This makes it one of my favorite Mario Parties. I mean, the custom pack even applies to single-player STORY MODE, so you can actually enjoy it because you will never fear a luck-based minigame, as long as you don't include it in your custom pack.

Another thing that the GCN Mario Parties have is Team Battles. My sister and I, since we live together nearly 24/7, really appreciate that option, but since it's not a concept of the first three Mario Parties and the last two, we avoided those three. We did play 2 and 3 on an emulator, but we do enjoy watching one of us destroy the other three computers. Then, we play together with the minigames. As I said, however, the first three have a shortage of minigames compared to the later ones.

I hope Mario Kart 8 is the last Mario Kart that features Retro Courses. Sure, the concept itself is very cool, but I'd rather have all 32 tracks being brand new. Plus, they're already running out of tracks from Mario Kart 64 and Double Dash. They've used almost all of them, and I don't think they're planning on re-reusing them. I also doubt that they're going to make basically all the new Retro Tracks from Mario Kart Wii and 7 (being the most recent ones and having the least tracks reused).

I'm not saying that it had the best soundtrack ever, I'm simply saying that it had a lot of fitting, and generally memorable tunes, while Dark Moon did not. This is especially the case with the boss themes.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: LeftyGreenMario on January 25, 2014, 07:22:00 AM
Well, you implied that it's good (after you mentioned how it set a bar) there's just one tune I find memorable, so Dark Moon doesn't sound terrible in comparison.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: SolarBlaze on January 25, 2014, 10:21:35 AM
I do think it's good, yes, and I'll admit that the "measuring bar" bit was poor wording on my part, but the point I was trying to make is that the second game had a soundtrack that completely paled in comparison to the first one. Aside from maybe a select few (including the main theme), I could hardly recall any of songs in that game. As I said in the above post, the boss themes, in particular, are truly unfitting. The only one of those that actually did fit (and was even remotely memorable) was King Boo's theme, and that, in my opinion, was far more fitting for a cutscene than a boss battle.

It still doesn't justify the reasoning behind SPM being a bad game, though it does suggests more people like him exist. And if more people like that actually exist, they should learn to not instantly hate everything that isn't familiar.

Super Princess Peach is co-developed by people who are responsible (or partially responsible) for Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix, Dr. Mario & Puzzle League, Game & Watch Gallery games, and Fortune Street. I've played, like just Mario Mix and Fortune Street (which is also developed by Square Enix), so I can't discern the quality of games these people put out.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series

Dance Dance Mario Mix is underrated.

I liked it how they gave Toadette and Waluigi roles. Granted, they were far from important roles, but, for spin-off characters like these who were usually just...there....it's a great treat.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: LeftyGreenMario on February 04, 2014, 01:35:17 PM
Dance Dance Revolution also had cover songs of Mario games NOT in the mainstream Mario games as well. It also reused animations from Mario Party GCN games, so that's always a plus.

I like the unfitting, unMario music the most of that game, though, like that Always Smiling with these women singing.
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series

I really loved DDR: Mario Mix as well.

I even managed to get Perfect Scores on each song on Very Hard except for Bowser's Castle (I even had difficulty getting an A rank cause I screw up near the end lol) without Mush Mode (but I use a controller cause I play with my hands, not my feet ;p).

Also I know this isn't really an unpopular but to add in about the TTYD and SPM discussion, TTYD is my favorite of the series, but SPM was pretty good as well.

Somewhat on topic, Brighton and Twila is my favorite pairing and I think they should return again (I wouldn't necessarily say it's unpopular cause they aren't really bashed but it's more like an obscure opinion). They were the best hosts IMO.

I was thinking that at least Zelda has magic powers that makes her a threat and she can stand up to herself. Unlike Princess Peach. Ganondorf is actually evil, however, compared to Bowser, who's more of a mischief maker.

One of the many reasons I like the Mario series more is that I play as Mario and Wario and Donkey Kong are frequent victims.

No, Ganondorf is clearly the main character. He's voiced by Takashi Nagasako, the same guy that provided Donkey Kong's charming voice in Mario Kart Wii. That really counts for something.

Also, if you're just gonna put something like "..." in a post, then why even bother posting? It can count as spam, and it adds nothing to the current conversation.


Anyways, I don't really know if this counts, but I never thought the NSMB games were that bad.

Not really. I'm not very nitpicky on that type of stuff, so that could be it. But I don't see how the coin gimmick makes it a bad thing

I never played the older games, so that's why I don't have much of an opinion on newer games compared to the older ones.

I don't see why people have to have a "brand new" game each time. Nintendo can't come up with completely new gimmicks every time they make a game, and I think you guys should just be grateful they are still making games. Saying a game "sucks" just because it uses the same gimmicks as a previous game is really stupid, in my opinion.

You know what? I've been watching a Super Paper Mario Let's Play recently, and honestly I think Bowser needs to take a break from being Big Bad and let Dimentio take over for a few games. He's obviously a real villain who's intelligent, cunning and just more evil than Bowser nowadays. If they gave him the 3D treatment and put him in a mainline Mario game I'm sure he would be received positively.
Make Bowser playable even. Just no more "O hai, I'm going to just wreck everything and steal a princess, pardon me" as the entire story for a game. Please. And make Count Bleck and Tippi mainline characters too while you're at it. I'm sure a small redesign would make them fit in the main series and depending on their (and Dimentio's) roles the Mario series could get a serious boost in epic.

I personally like NSMB2, reused assets from the Wii version and everything. It is a very fun and enjoyable game that kept me playing for quite a while, even if it may seem a tad on the easy side.

Also, an unpopular opinion is that I like the "BAH"s added to the tower and castle tunes for NSMB2.

Because clearly people expect Mario games to take themselves completely seriously.

Some games do try to take a more serious approach, but the Mario series is pretty much the definitive example of the silly side of the scale (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness) regarding video games, and even the games that do take themselves more seriously either have some more lighthearted moments or just shift back and forth on the scale.

So WHAT, it's basically just DLC for a game that was already terrible? So WHAT, it had a price tag of $40? The NSMB series has only worn out 99.99999999% of its welcome, so this game is still OK!

It's called an opinion. The thread title is called "Unpopular opinions of the Mario series", and it's my opinion, and so clearly it belongs here. People can have different opinions, you know.

Either way, that's not what I was saying. Don't put words in my mouth. I never grew up on every single classic Mario game there is like a lot of people.

In fact, my first Mario game was NSMB, therefore it could be considered a "classic" for me.

I don't care if it's an opinion; opinions can be formed by misinformation too. I can understand you enjoy New Super Mario Bros. 2, but justifying how the game is a stagnant, rehashed, cynical cash-grab baffles me. It's a legitimate criticism for a game to be exactly the same as it has been. No changes, no improvements, and barely any effort to differentiate itself, and its stand-out mechanic is not built around as the reward is miniscule. Nintendo has the resources to make an entirely different game, and they can pour more effort into making a Mario game that actually tries to stand-out, but nope, Mario sells, so that encourages them to put as least effort as possible into the game. Movies, in a related note, also get criticized if they are too much the same like another movie, and yes, they are legitamate criticisms.

I wouldn't have defended myself if you haven't said that games can't be criticized for being more of the same.

I spent 100+ hours on a single file in that game.

It does last longer than that; the game just stops tracking your time when you reach there.

"O hai, I'm going to just wreck everything and steal a princess, pardon me"
That's pretty much Bowser in a nutshell. Despite the fact that he comes up with the same boring, repetitive plans almost every time, he still gets next to nothing but praise among the fans, where they constantly drone on about how "awesome" and "badass" he is. Somehow, he also managed to win the "Best Video Game Villain of All Time" award in the gamer's edition of the Guinness World Records, further proving my point on how overrated he is. How Bowser, of all people, managed to get such an award is beyond me.

To be fair, Doopliss, Popple, and Mr. L weren't the main villains in any of their respective games, nor were they trying to rule the world, destroy it, or anything of the sort, so comparing them to Bowser is kind of like comparing apples to oranges. I'm definitely in agreement about the others, though. Pretty much every one of them came up with plans that are far better than anything Bowser ever has. I guess Antasma's a bit of a special case, since they gave him little to no time to shine or develop as a character. Even so, I still consider him to be the real villain of Dream Team, since all Bowser basically did was leech off of his work.

Exactly. They completely fail to show Bowser as what he was created to be: a powerful, threatening villain. Super Mario Galaxy was the first Mario game I played, and it got me a really good impression of Bowser. However…the following totally ruined it:

Super Mario Sunshine: Spends "family togetherness" with his son, Bowser Jr. in the most pathetic way.

Because it isn't Mario?

It's like asking King Dedede, the most recurring antagonist, to be a legit menacing villain with a detailed backstory.

well at least i can agree with mk64 rainbow road and smrpg.

Both are horrible, but i felt like smw had some decent level design.

Although my real problem with smw is the music, its so dang boring.

Also, really stupid exit locations and one of the star road courses is so short that it's lazier than nsmb2.
N64 Rainbow Road: One word: BOOOOOORING
Super Mario RPG: Geno, Mallow, and Smithy aren't interesting.
Nsmb: Yeah, this was just to troll. It is the best nsmb game though.
Super Mario 3d World: Lives being shared with no increase in amount of possible lives gained, throwing people with same button as everything else, DAMAGING people with the wearable cannon box.

I think Mario Kart 64 is the second-worst game in the franchise. Super Mario Kart is the worst simply because it is horribly dated, has no character voices, and Wario is absent.

I like different exits as well. I am a bit disappointed that there aren't additional exits in 3D World. In 3D World, I am also sorely disappointed that there are hardly any bonus levels that are off-path, especially since the world maps are free-roaming. I mean, you'd expect secret levels like that.

I thought he wanted Peach for power.

He wants to kidnap Peach, marry her, and then lock her away forever. He could care less about Peach. He just wants to be king of the Mushroom Kingdom.
The diary entry that Peach and Twink read in the first Paper Mario kind of says otherwise.

I couldn't agree more. Nintendo could just replace the Fire Bro. Hideouts and the secret toad houses (but keep the golden train) with actual levels and the game would be so much more interesting.
Also, I wish they had moved the secret exits so they weren't in the same locations as in 3d land.

Although as shoey stated rosalina was limited in what she can do in some spin-offs she was in.

Well, it would not ruin the characters themselves, but their fame for the debate of not using other main characters. Same for the generic toads earlier, though they didn't have any fame. But generally it's Nintendo who are defaming themselves.

I guess it's the ultimate fate when we hope a character becomes recurring and appears in all kinds of games. It's just like the damsel role of Peach would just make fans angrier and angrier.

Wait a second: I'd rather have Rosalina rot in the dust than have her playable in Strikers, Olympics, Party, Baseball and all that. THOSE don't suit her. I was kind of worried when I saw Rosalina with the cat suit like Pokémon Trainer Red, but there's nothing we can do now. My worry was that they ruined her personality like they did to Daisy, but she seems to retain her calm nature, so I'm ok with it now.

The good thing is that now I won't have to worry about her ever being forgotten after her addition to Super Smash Bros. That automatically made her a Nintendo star.

She did have one, just not one as notable as the one she has now. She was rather clumsy, relaxed, and pretty much a copy of Peach. But even with all of that, I preferred that silly Daisy to the annoying, loud girl we have now. Now, I can't stand her because of her voice.

Her new appearance is HIDEOUS. She was pretty before the redesign, but I understand why they did it. She was way too similar to Peach. At this point, all I'd do is fire Deanna Mustard and bring someone that gives her a voice that matches her new personality without sounding annoying.

Well, it's my personal thought, but she's still similar with Peach in her general design (it's what most Daisy haters say, as I remember). She could have been more special if she used other custumes such as Arabian harem pants. At least Kate or Nina were more distinctive than her.

I don't pay attention to them because while the general design is similar, they DO have differences. The hair length and color, jewelry, facial features, different dress features, etc. I don't dislike Daisy for being too similar to Peach, I dislike her because I truly hate her voice and attitude. I don't get why those who say Daisy is a palette swap of Peach don't say that Luigi is a palette swap of Mario. Daisy is more different from Peach than Luigi is from Mario. Luigi is basically a taller Mario, with a stretched head, a different mustache and different clothing colors. That's it.

I think it's too late to redesign Daisy now. Anything they do to her now will scream "We're forcing you to be even more different from Peach for no apparent reason". I think Daisy is condemned to be treated as a palette swap and will only be relegated to spin-offs forever.

Parially agree. I think the design is identifiable doesn't mean that she can't be more unique, while at least Mario and Luigi are twins and Wario has an alternative Warioware suit. But sometimes I do think that the haters are just saying nonsense.

As you said, Nintendo could make her "unidentifiable" with a redesign (but a new clothes don't count a redesign I guess). But if you're saying that she can't be in more games with the old appearance, well, no, she does need a redesign.  >:(

Not gonna lie, with the exception of 3D World and Dream Team the recent Mario games I've played have felt pretty lackluster. Still, this doesn't mean the series can't be revived.

I totally agree with this too. I understand Mario is targeted mostly towards little kids, but I think they're exaggerating its childishness lately. I'd like him to be targeted towards kids still, but a little bit more "mature", kind of like Sonic, Crash or Spyro. You know, nothing too mature but not something that will make adults cringe like Super Mario 3D World.

Well, I found it very, very childish, to be honest. Hearing Mario and friends screaming "Meow!"? And that little dance they do when they beat a World Boss? Yeah, cringe-worthy. My friends felt the same. Thankfully the game is awesome and extremely fun, so that makes up for it.

Not necessarily. At one point, the Mario Kart series was one of the very few spin-offs that I actually liked; at least to the point of being willing to spend my own money on it. It wasn't until I played Mario Kart Wii that I lost interest in the series. Then there was Mario Kart 7, which hardly brought anything new to the table, and now there's Mario Kart 8, which also doesn't seem like anything special. Basically, in a nutshell, it gives me a "been there, done that" type of vibe.

Pretty sure these aren't like, a gameplay changing thing. It spices things up a bit yes but it doesn't change the core formula. I don't think Mario Kart really is for Solar Blaze though, since the small spicy change is all that is needed for me to keep the series fresh
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: LeftyGreenMario on May 03, 2014, 05:17:37 PM
It's not fair to call out Mario Kart for introducing hardly any new things since Mario Kart is one of those games that don't need as much change as a Mario platformer. They are multiplayer games designed around replay value, so you can't compare it to say, Mario platformers, and say, "Oh, why the flack for New Super Mario Bros. rehashes when Mario Kart does the same?".
Title: Re: Unpopular opinions about the Mario series
Post by: Northern Verve on May 05, 2014, 01:24:26 PM
While we're on the subject of Mario Kart.

- Courses are more important then Characters

- Mario Kart 64 may have not aged well, but I still think it's one of the overall better games of the series for the sheer nostalgic charm, selection of courses, soundtrack, fair items, and the impact it's had on the Mario Kart series. I get the sense Nintendo knows MK64 is that nostalgic for many longtime fans as they've had more references to MK64 in Mario Kart 7 & 8 more so then the previous games did. Not just in the retro tracks and their remixes (Cause otherwise previous games also did that), but also including the Pipe Frame (I know technically the Pipe frame debuted in the very first Mario Kart, but I still attribute it more to Mario Kart 64 anyway), and also removing the wings from the Blue Shell to make it capable of traveling on the ground like it did in MK64 (Until it got to the first player anyway). I acknowledge the game's flaws, with the heavy rubberbanding A.I. even for Mario Kart standards, the controls can be awkward and/or slippery, and while I love N64's Rainbow Road I understand it could be boring and/or way too long for some (Thankfully, Mario Kart 8 will remaster N64 Rainbow Road to be alot more enjoyable. Considering I already enjoyed MK64's Rainbow Road. It will be extra special for me :) ). But I just can't help but love the game for the times I've had growing up playing the game with my dad. Or messing around in Battle Mode with my Brother that no other Mario Kart game since then have given me the same type of joy. I think Mario Kart 8 could finally make me say without a doubt that game could be the best in the series. But Mario Kart 64 will always have a special place in my heart ^^

At least some of the Mario series (*cough*RPGs*cough*) has continuity. Except the blatant middle finger of Sticker Star, even Paper Mario seemed to have its own continuity. So does Mario & Luigi.

I see a lot of Koopalings hate around here, most of all in the Mario Kart 8 thread. Even though I miss Bowser Jr., I still think the Koopalings were a wonderful addition.

I agree completely. I don't see how Miyamoto could just suddenly go back on over twenty years of established information. To me, saying that they're not Bowser's kids is almost akin to saying that Mario and Luigi aren't brothers.

The Koopalings are Bowser's kids, but from a different mother than Bowser Jr.

From what I remember, Miyamoto straight-up said that they weren't Bowser's kids after 20 years.

Yep, he did. Pisses me off to no end, it does. One can still argue they were adopted or something and then disowned when he got himself a biological kid or something, but I prefer the "screw that, I'm doing what's right and leaving them as his kids in my headcanon" reaction.

Same here. It's so much more interesting when they are Bowser's children IMO. I don't care about the mother of those kids, really.

I'm always of the theory that the mother is dead. Think of it - she's never mentioned, even in the RPGs.

What really got me into Mario (beyond just playing the games) was wondering what happened to the mother and then writing a story about what would happen if she came back. Then that basic story evolved into a whole, convoluted headcanon, but aside from the specific "she comes back" fanfics, I just operate under the assumption that she vanished without a trace when Junior was an egg and is presumed dead.

Of course, if Nintendo can't handle Bowser having a gaggle of non-mini-me kids, they probably won't be giving him any sort of wife, past or present, so hopefully our headcanons about this aspect of his family life are safe.

Maybe they're divorced. Bowser had a midlife crisis and dyed his hair red, but his wife didn't like it and left him. Now Bowser keeps kidnapping Peach because he's hoping for ransom money to pay alimony.

That's why the Koopalings keep coming back for one game and then vanish for the next twenty. They live with their mother and just visit occasionally. Bowser Jr. is Bowser's newest kid and has no connection to his shrew of an ex wife, so he lives with his dad.

I wanna say they are divorced in the cartoons, but I could be confusing the actual show with fanfiction rewritings of select episodes that I read years ago...

Maybe Peach reminds him of his ex-wife so he's trying to get back to a place where he was with his wife and happy.

Or she's nothing like the wife, and he's using Peach to try to forget his wife and the painful hole she left behind.

That makes perfect sense, but why wouldn't Bowser put himself in World 1 (bar NSMB) so Mario doesn't have to trek as far to get to him?

He needs the heat because it's good for his dorsalgia.

Isn't him having back pains even canon? I recall it being a plot point in Bowser's Inside Story.

It's only in that one minor part of the game, and even then it's only after he's freed from a safe after being cramped in there for a while.

Everything that happens in Mario games is just a means to an end. Half of the fun is piecing together absurd implications that result from those events.

Really, the fact that there's almost no continuity or plot cohesion in the series means it can be pretty much whatever you want it to be.

I think Waluigi is a far better character than Toad, and that Toad is a failure of a character that needs to die and go to the Underwhere and never return. Meanwhile his corpse is sacrificed to the Great Lord Waluigi, who rejects such filth and gives it to the wild Goombas.

I enjoyed MK7 more then I did MKWii :V

Main reason really was that the default item system I found much more balanced, plus the addition of gliders, going under water, customization of Kart bodies, gliders, wheels, etc. gave it something quite interesting. While Wii's have probably the worst usage of the blue shell and the bikes were clearly better then the karts in most occasions.
