I just noticed this. Mario doesn't talk that much. Why's that?

He never says things apart from "its a me Mario" or something else.
What's up with that?

Mario interview. He talks. A LOT.

HIS GRAMMAR IS TERRIBLE.

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

In most Mario games there isn't really a need for dialogue. In games where dialogue is crucial, like the Mario RPGs, Mario takes the role of the silent protagonist, akin to Gordon Freeman or Link.

My sig will never happen, but it would be awesome if it did.

Let's be honest...

"Oh yeah! Mario time!" is the worst dialogue in the history of video games. Even worse than "All your base."

Would you really want to see more gems like that?

I didn't think so.

A. He sounds disappointingly normal.

B. He sounds really racist.

Pick one.

Because for a story with the complexity of "the princess got captured, go save her", dialogue isn't really needed.

Specific to the RPGs, it's for the same reason lots of main characters are silent. It's so the player can imagine it's them, and fill in their own reactions to what is happening.

Go to 32 seconds for chatty Mario.

More villains need to be protagonists. BiS proves it can work.
Ridley, Ganondorf, Fawful, Bowser, and Dimentio all for their own games!
