How big of a fan are you of the various Mario series?

#1a_fartn_SpartanPosted 3/25/2014 9:04:43 AM
For the purposes of this topic, I'm just gonna use the classic 5-choice rating system, meaning:

1/5 = completely uninterested. You just don't like the genre.
2/5 = not a fan. It'd take a new feature or something to get a sale outta you.
3/5 = neutral. Only buys the game because it's good, not because you like the series.
4/5 = fan. You only skip a game from this series every now and then.
5/5 = huge fan. Buy all games, even the mediocre ones. Reviews would have to be horrible for you not to buy this game.

So don't take the descriptions too literal, they're just sorta guidelines. It's just like if someone asked you "do you agree that you're a fan of Paper Mario?" and you answer either strongly disagree, disagree, neutral, agree, or strongly agree. Don't think too much into it. Anyway, here's mine.


2D Mario - 5/5
3D Mario - 5/5
Mario Kart - 5/5
Mario Party - 4/5 (at least before MP9 and Island Tour)
Paper Mario - 3/5
Mario & Luigi - 4/5
Mario Strikers - 5/5
Mario Baseball - 3/5
Mario Tennis - 2/5
Mario Golf - 2/5
Mario & Sonic @ the Olympic Games - 1/5
Mario vs. Donkey Kong - 2/5
Dr. Mario - 3/5


I tried only including the big series that have had a game within the decade, and plenty of additions to the series.

2D Mario - 5/5
3D Mario - 5/5
Mario Kart - 5/5
Mario Party - 2/5 (Used to be a 4 or 5 until they made DK non-playable)
Paper Mario - 3/5 (Trending towards a 2 or 1)
Mario & Luigi - 5/5
Mario Strikers - 1/5
Mario Baseball - 5/5
Mario Tennis - 4/5
Mario Golf - 5/5
Mario & Sonic @ the Olympic Games - 3/5
Mario vs. Donkey Kong - 3/5
Dr. Mario - 2/5

Overall a pretty big fan. There are some spinoffs I have to avoid not just because of how good they are but also for cost reasons. I'd go broke buying every Mario game off the shelf. I used to buy games from Mario Party and Mario vs. DK, but I've pretty much stopped. I will probably stop buying Paper Mario and Mario & Sonic games as well. Some others are hit and miss, but I will always buy a main series game or Mario Kart.

5/5, though honestly I prefer the characters themselves over actually playing the games. I'm horrible at Mario anyway. I've only beaten one - 64 - and that was due to me relying on walk throughs for every star.
