Unpopular opinions about the Mario series

POW Block can be easily avoided by shaking the Wii Remote or pressing up on the D-Pad so that you don't lose speed. You also won't lose half of your coins in Battle mode.
As I said on my previous post, that item can still mess you up when you have to drift to avoid going off-road, or falling into an abyss.

I actually LOVE the Peach escort mission in Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga…mostly because I’m a grinder when it comes to RPGs, so by all means…kidnap her.

Sticker Star is unironically pretty good, people just fail to see that and focus on what the old games have that sticker star doesn't to build their case on why it's bad when it's actually not. Its battle system relying on consumables isn't even a detriment because you're never realistically gonna run out of ways to attack and the enemies are weak enough where you can throw a fucking hat at them and they commit toaster bath, allowing for some experimentation. The battles themselves also go by very quickly and never feel like a chore to get through, and if you feel like the battles not mattering because exp isn't real hurts the game... then simply avoid battles and enjoy the good level design that doesn't only consist of rectangular rooms filled with enemies and is actually pretty cool to explore, even with nothing but a hammer. That and the world map facilitates traveling between places so you don't have to actually walk the distance.

Pmss showed me that a full on digital Mario adventure card battle game would be really fun, if baddies can be used as cards too.

I haven't played the first 2 Paper Mario games but I still think Sticker Star is bad.

Baby Mario and Baby Luigi add much needed diversity to a roster by virtue of being time paradoxes. I can say they're better additions than Spike or Chargin' Chuck.

speaking of playable babies maybe they should start putting kiddy kong into games again
this is possibly an unpopular opinion on its own that i do happen to like kiddy, a lot

yea sand bird wasnt that bad as soon as i was told to stay on the neck when it rotates. theres definitely much (much) worse shines in the game
i dont think secret of the village underside (its the chuckster one) was that bad either. the biggest problem is mostly just the whole lot of waiting you have to do

The Sand Bird's just annoying with the physics, but I don't remember it being hard or infuriating. I remember staying at around the tail, but Super Mario Sunshine's just super finicky with slopes. It's like 45 degrees you're fine, but 46 degrees, you go skydiving to your death (Mario diving for his final falling moments is the only way he goes down). You just can't trust how slopes work in the game, and the games LOVES throwing tilting platforms at you.

Disliked the level, but I feel it's more out of strong initial disappointment of what it looked like. They build up so much to this majestic creature whose endangered by these monsters and the spectacular reward for getting it to hatch is... this pile of coarse and grainy crap??



I had more of this in mind

Said no one ever though. I like to see a substantiation for that claim, might be an interesting argument.

Given the choice between 3D Land and Super Mario Bros. 3/World, I'd go for 3D Land to be quite honest.

Partners in Time is the worst of the Mario and Luigi games I can see why it did not get a remake
(that hurt me while I was typing it)
