Best Mario Party for Gamecube?

I'm looking to buy one of the Mario Party games for the Gamecube but...there are several and I dunno which one would be the best choice?

The way I see it:
4 has the best minigames but has atrocious boards.

5 is the most well rounded with good minigames and some cool boards. My personal favorite.

6 is a mixed bag. Some good more complicated minigames but a lot that are pure chance as well.

7 tries to mix it up. Only one board plays like a traditional Mario Party board. The minigames are nice and are more complicated than the older games. The microphone is dumb but you can play without it.

I'd get 5.

5 is by far the best.

It has the most boards (7 instead of the usual 6), the boards are all classic Mario Party style, it has a lot more minigames than 4 and effectively more minigames then 6&7 because those spend a lot of games on rarely played modes/gimmicks.

It has pretty much the same graphics as 6&7, so it looks a lot better then 4.

The boards and minigames thenselvelves are pretty good.

The only controversial/negative thing is the item/orb system. Some people like it, some don't. But the only GC game with normal items is 4, snd i don't think a better item system is worth playing with less boards, less characters, less minigames, slightly off controls and worse graphics.

My favorite was definitely 5. Although, I never played 6, but out of 4, 5, and 7, my favorite is 5.

5 was the best GameCube one, and could possibly be the best Mario party game.

Mario Party 1 and 2 on the n64 are by FAR the best ones.

my vote goes to 5 or 6. 7 was OK with some cool new ideas but the fact that it only had like 10 4-player games is a hard hit.
