Mario Party 7: 8 Player Mingames

I thought this was a very unique feature to include in the game. I just got it, and it's probably my favorite part. I have to get more people to play now. I think this would be great and it could return in a future Mario Party, especially one for the Wii U. What do you guys think?
I loved the 8-Player Minigames in MP7, they were sooo fun. I'd love to see them return.
