    Mario Party is one of the most popular of the Mario spin-off titles, featuring Mario and his friends in a variety of minigames while traversing a giant game board. Mario Party had its start on the Nintendo 64, and it is still going to this day with the more recent release: Super Mario Party. (And yes, the title is clickbait. I want my advertisement money)

    My favorite Mario Party is either Mario Party 2 or 8. 2 is famous for being a fun time, and it definitely is. I never owned it, but have played it with my friends a number of times. I also appreciate 8 because I feel the motion controls are actually really fun for once.

    Which Mario Party is your favorite? Why? What makes a Mario Party game fun? What are your thoughts on the atrocity known as Mario Party 10?

    I never played 10, but heard a lot of bad things about it.

    I HAVE played the N64 trilogy, Advance, DS, 8, and 9, but I wouldn't mind giving the GameCube and 3DS entries a go.

    Ah, Mario Party, the video game equivalent of Monopoly...with all the dangers such a comparison brings. xD

    The only Mario Party game I've played is the 5th one on the Gamecube, and honestly it never really took off with me - my friends were more interested in Mario Kart Double Dash and Smash Bros Melee when we played Gamecube games together, so there was very little room for it...it just wasn't as good. Not to say it was BAD, but that's pretty steep competition to go up against for the attention of teenagers who are only interested in what is popular!

    It's not a series I'm really familiar with, but I think that's primarily because I don't have anyone to play it with these days. I've found that enthusiasm for these games is highly infectious: it's the company that makes them worth playing. It doesn't really matter how good or bad it is - I expect I'd have fun mocking Mario Party 10 with other people if we all got into it!

    I survived the war of '99, first generation on the N64. I came back from that war with a sense of shock... and with a particular set of skills.

    I only ever had 1, and have played a few others for maybe one session each, and it caused hatred. See, the thing is... I was too darn good at it. Any game which did not involve circling the control stick rapidly I would utterly destroy everyone in. Shy Guy's red and white flag game? Cast-Away? Stretching or outlining Bowser's face? I was the supreme champion in so many minigames that it made me into an enemy by default. If I won, there I go, being the jerk and winning again. If I lose, then there I go, being arrogant by only 'letting' people win, even if I honestly did just slip up.

    The thing is, no matter how much we started hating each other over playing board games, we could always beat the living snot out of each other in Smash and be best friends again. Funny how that works out: board games spawned hate, while fighting bred friendship.
