    Super Mario Party Kart: Paper Brawl

    Peter Hartlaub of SFGate recently wrote a blurb about what he thinks of all of the Mario Spin-offs.

    Since the Mario character was introduced in Donkey Kong in the 1980s, he’s appeared in more than 100 video games - which is about 75 too many. When Nintendo’s starts a non-Mario, non-Zelda, non-Star Fox series - such as Animal Crossing and the excellent Pikmin - the results are usually excellent, but too often the company falls back to its safety zone of another Mario game, whether he’s the focus or just making a cameo appearance. We wouldn’t ask Disney to euthanize Mickey Mouse, and Mario doesn’t need to disappear either. But with the groundbreaking creative possibilities of Nintendo Wii and the Nintendo DS, how about just one Mario appearance per year and more energy spent on new characters?
    Anyone agree with his article?

    I for one think that the Mario Karts, Super Smash Bros, and Paper Marios are just fine. (All 3 kind of being their own individual franchises) Plus, Nintendo strictly sticks to one tennis, baseball, and golf a console. But, Nintendo really does have to slow down on the Mario Parties (Who's quality has really gone downhill in recent years)

    I say a new Mario Party every 4 years, and start bundling Mario Tennis, Soccer, Baseball, and Golf in packs of two. (Because personally, I enjoy these games)

    i agree put more quality into mario party(even if it means less of them) but i need my mario fix

    they sell well cause that's what fans want

    so why not make more

    hell i look at it this way, they ONLY release one main mario game with every console(super mario world, super mario 64, sunshine, galaxy)

    i want more lol

    omg i love Mario games the more they make the better. although i would love them to come up with more new charactors and franchises but they have alot as it is. i mean Donkey Kong, Mario, Zelda, Metroid prime, pokemon, pikmin, animal crossing the list goes on and on. they make games for all of these and so what if they make a million mario games people enjoy them and thats all that counts. so far for the wii they've all done well. Mario Strikers Charged although i've never played it yet im hoping too..i've heard has done well...Mario Kart and SSBB look amazing and will no doubt hopefully live up to the hype. Mario Party 8 has like what over 1mil copies sold and i have it and its fun. SMG great game with good graphics. so it appears that no matter how many games they make their all good. cant think of one mario game i dont like
    *tries to think*
    nope natta

    any game company would kill to have a franchise/character as strong and as everlasting as mario. why do you think nintendos fans are so loyal? because everyone grows up with mario.
