My favorite Bowsers are in the mario partys, super mario 64, mario super sluggers.

I like Color Splash.
I haven't played Sticker Star though.
I surely agree with this one. I mean, it surely lacks variety characters-wise (too many Toads and Shy Guys - Shy Guys are pretty cool tho) and has a... weird battle system but it has witty writings, looks very beautiful and colourful (I mean, it's called COLOR Splash duh), has a solid soundtrack and some interesting and funny missions (like, fighting a steak to cook it? Pretty brilliant if you ask me). It also gave the Koopalings unique battle themes and well-defined personalities so promps to it for that.

I like Yoshi's Island better than Super Mario World
is this unpopular? i don't think SMW holds up extraordinarily nowadays. it's not bad or even average, but it's not that great either and it's antiquated compared to the Nu Soup games, not counting the myriad of other 2D platforming games that have seen success in the past 10 years. i can't underplay its historical significance though.

Yoshi's Island on the other hand, with all the things I didn't like in it, was still great in 2020 when I last played it and continues to be one of my favourite platformers.

has a... weird battle system
Since I havent played Pm64 or TTYD or even watched many videos of it, I dont know what the old battle system was like. But color splash's battles arent nearly as out there as what i saw of OK

That was one of the best parts of the game ngl, along w/ the smb3 level

I haven't played it but yeah, Origami King's battle system looks really weird. The issue I've heard about Color Splash's battle system is that compared to previous Paper Mario games it takes way too much time and effort to do what used to be simple moves thanks to the GamePad and card painting gimmicks.

Yeah i think Color Splash is better than Sticker Star too....but not better than the first 3 paper marios.

Basically, I believe it's a tad too slow with all the card and paint things going on and it encourages players to skip regular enemies battles since it's quite unrewarding. I've heard of many people quitting the game solely because of the battle system. But again, to me Color Splash is a pretty solid game on its own, I enjoyed it a lot - even though Kiwano Temple was literally a pain to complete - and I didn't suffer the battle system as much as many other people.

Yea honestly. I like smw, but there are other way better 2d mario games imo. Yoshis Island is the only yoshi game I've played, so while my opinion on it could change if I play another one, I prefer it over smw

Also the only two paper marios I havent played are the "bad" ones (sticker star and color splash). Im pretty sure ill enjoy color splash if u play it, because I loved origami king and had no problems with what people were complaining about

Why so? I'm just curious.
for some weird reason i liked slowly adjusting the boat, scoring a perfect trajectory, then jumping off to land on the final platform as the boat crashed and sunk. the boat's mechanics only became frustrating when i tried collecting the blue coins (surprise surprise).

Fair enough I guess. As for me, I could never stand that horrible boat; I think it's awfully annoying and anticlimatic. But it fits very well with Sunshine style I guess.
