I mean say Super Mario Galaxy had a Galaxy of Fifty Trials all of which were just really boring, that wouldn't mean the game is not a masterpiece, just dissappointing that something which wouldve been cool wasnt cool

Well that's the same we felt about the Pit of Trials. Sometimes, side content isn't that good. Super Mario Galaxy 2 has a pretty awful post-game content filled with only filler stars. Thing is, that's still part of the core game experience that some of us choose to play through and therefore should still be considered when rating a game.

I always wanted to fight Bonetail in TTYD, but I could never be bothered to go through 100 trials to get there. I definitely would not do it for Super Paper Mario since the gameplay in that game is way more repetitive.

For some reason, I did get all the green stars in the second galaxy game. (I doubt I would do it again though).

Paper Mario could really benefit from better postgame stuff. Better yet, why not make a new game plus that ups the difficulty? Have the game be easily accessible for everyone and have this new hard mode for RPG fans who want a little more out of it. I'd also be down for fun sidequests (via Trouble Center if that ever comes back), roaming bosses, and all that.

On that note, give us better fast travel please. We have Blue Pipes in The Thousand-Year Door but not all the locations have that for some weird reason.

This is just your reminder that due to it being delayed till next year, Mario & Sonic at the 2020 Olympic games now takes place on a year that the olympics never officially happened.

Maybe it knew something we didn't. 👀

Not much you can do when you have a deadly pandemic going around, even if it is merely coincidental.

Hmmm so now Bowser and Eggman have something better than fog machines and ice melters

Here's a thought, what if instead of this lame extra content, they made good extra content instead?
Because I still think they are valuable extras, just I also feel it would have been improved by adding save blocks (especially to TTYD) or not making the player need to do Flopside twice

Valuable extras maybe but we also need to be able to enjoy them.

Those people have a shitton of patience then.

Still doesn't mean it's not a flaw. Many people actually have to force themselves to do these, myself included.

Let's also take into account those who like to complete the games they play.
But that's a choice and they don't have to if they don't want to. I'm a HUGE fan of TTYD but I choose not to complete it to 100% because I feel it'd be too tedious problem solved
If a developer puts something in a game, then it's valid to criticise it, no matter how big or small.
Yes, but even if it's tedious, even if it's only slightly valuable, it's still better than nonexisting so long as it's optional

I think the Pits of 100 Trials, especially in TTYD, are justified just due to the amount of challenge runners that play it in different ways. Sure everything can be improved, but I'll take what's there over nothing at all, or even less interesting side content, which the games after SPM barely have any.

Koops, King of cowards.
The first game doesn't even have a postgame, yet it's not a bad thing.

It has sidequests though like the Dojo, delivering letters with Parakarry and favors for Koopa Koot. Most of TTYD's side content isn't restricted to postgame either. Nor is SPM's, aside from Sammer's Kingdom.
