    John's semi-professional opinions.

    If you have a spare 20 bucks I recommend you just get the Java version of PC, as this gives you access to both Java and bedrock editions of MC (by far the most desirable two.) And it's not limited to one console so you can enjoy hardware upgrades indefinitely as well as being able to switch...

    What is the funniest joke in the series?

    Every Bowser moment in Mario RPGs pre-2012. That scene in SSS on the Koopa Cruiser where Bowletta and Fawful find out they kidnapped Luigi by mistake.

    Yes absolutely. https://www.thetoptens.com/l/#video-games/MiracleDinner I know that list is based off my personal opinion only but even putting my own enjoyment to an aside, there's no doubt that Minecraft is an incredibly powerful and remarkable game which has extremely versatile ways to...

    The only bad part of Ch5 imo was the block puzzle in 5-1 which you can skip by looking up the code. Personally my favourite presentation of Bowser is Bowser's Inside Story since he's epic and funny and you get to explore his body. SPM comes second because he wasn't that epic but he was...

    a) Because that's horrific and b) because Bowser in SPM is just that funny (I know the question wasn't directed at me but I once again hold similar opinions to @Vivian )

    Do you mean SPM? No way, he was awesome! "But... But I'm Bowser! I'm grade-A, 100% prime-cut final boss! I'm going to take over the world any day now! No way am I helping Mario! He's always trashing my awesome plans." "NO! I'M NOT SWEET! And I'm not helping Mario just to save a bunch of...

    The epilogue was very beautiful though. I used "Proof of Existence" on the last slide of a presentation I gave last year and the atmosphere was just perfect because that's how it was composed to be. A joyous ending to a long adventure, an emotional goodbye, and a hope for a positive future.

    I know this thread has been mostly inactive for a while but tbh I'm suprised MP2 did comparitively badly - it is the highest ranked on TheTopTens "Best Mario Party Games" and it is the only one of the original N64 trilogy I have access to thanks to the Wii U VC.

    Haven't played that game so no spoilers please. I would've won the tournament a lot easier if I did that but for the sake of not making it too easy for myself I varied up the tactics, though with the level I was at by that point having beaten Shadoo it was still easy. Agreed OK I understand...

    I generally prefer to call the game "Paper Mario 64", "Paper Mario 1", "PM1", or "PM64" even if its official name is simply "Paper Mario" because eh it just sort of feels wrong just on its own and it gets confusing with the series or less often the character or the stage in SSB3DS.

    It's still deep. I went to the theatre a few months back to see R&J and sure it was decent but the gooeyness and clicheness of it all and the fact that its a formal play written by a notorious literaturist (that's hardly a word lol) stops the power of the plot from reaching me.

    Count Bleck is my favourite video game character easily because true forbidden love stories have been used in many media prior to SPM but never before in a Mario game, at least not on this scale. And it was truly his presentation and atmosphere that made him so special for me. E.g. how he is...

    I would argue otherwise, maybe there are people going around praising SMB2's plotline and not feeling they need anything else and sure whatever floats their boat.

    I see nothing wrong either with serious fanfics of lighthearted kids' shows or with appreciating the deep story elements of the Mario RPGs. At least for Super Paper Mario and TTYD, they truly were designed to be artworks in many ways beyond gameplay which I think they fulfilled excellently.
