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

    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)

    NO WAY!!!!

    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.

    I agree with this, to a certain degree. I enjoy the mario spin-offs and what -not, but it seems like the Wii is being flooded with them. I say, keep the Mario games coming, but maybe once a year, make an original Mario game. Super Smash Bros was a breath of fresh air, even if mario only made a cameo appearance.

    Seeing more original games would be awesome, Nintendo has the man power and the wits to pull am awesome original game off. I say, take a leaf outta Sega's book, From Virtua Fighter to Sonic. Nintendo should stop making as many buddy games, and cater for the mature side of the Wii owner. Make a Virtua Fighter, Halo or DMC type game... GO FOR IT!

    Mario is great, but the quality of games such as Mario Party could use a little more attention. I'd love to see another Punch Out like the original NES one. Wii Sports was ok, but it got dull. If we could use it in combination with the wiifit board, and have Mario as a referee again, I think that would be a great game. Kind of like Smash Bros, where we have all the characters to choose from, but in a boxing tournament.

    Super Smash Bros. series is not a Mario spin-off! What is this guy thinking?

    The Mario RPGs aren't really spin-offs either, I don't know why he has a problem with them. I love the Paper Mario series (at least the first two.), but yeah, Mario Party really just needs to go away. It's been overdone now. It's been overdone for years, in fact.

    "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?"

    If you look at the games where Mario appears most often, character development isn't exactly a primary concern. What sort of character development can you really have in sports games, party games, and racing games? Does it really matter if your soccer team has Mario on it or some other new character? Not so much. It doesn't really help or hurt that Mario is in those titles. I thought maybe the Miis would become more prominent in Nintendo's future sports titles but so far that doesn't look like it will be the case.

    At any rate, in the games where the character actually matters, Mario only appears about once per year. 2007 was a bit of an exception with Galaxy, Paper Mario, and New SMB all coming out in the same year but it had been a while since Sunshine and 1000 Year Door.
