Sticker Star is now the best selling PM game in Japan, in only two months.

i would imagine its because 3DS itself is selling way more than n64 or gamecube (which is unfortunate, gamecube was amazing)

I enjoyed it but I'd prefer the next game go back to the style of the first two games.

It also outsold the Wii one. You know, Wii being Nintendo's best selling home console ever.

1. There already were far more 3DSs sold than the entire lifetime of the Gamecube. Meaning the potential buyers for SS were already far more than for TTYD.

2. Just because a lot of PM fans think it's not their favorite, or think it's their least favorite, doesn't means they didn't buy it before getting disappointed or finding it a fun game regardless of not being a very good Paper Mario.

3. Super Paper Mario was garbage. It doesn't matters what they say about its story. In fact, the lack of story IS NOT part of the big flaws with Sticker Star. Most people who buy Mario games couldn't care less about the story. Check out which Mario games sell the most and you'll see.

Lot of good games on that list


Lotta bad/mediocre ones too, which was my point.

Doesn't mean most poor selling games get a free pass at quality, especially when the opposite can be the exception.

Sticker Star is by far the worst game in the series, Japanese people have bad taste.

I wouldn't even call it a good game. It has zilch for replay value and the rewards for completing the FEW optional objectives suck completely.

Battles actually are pretty pointless. I fought everything I could along the way and thought otherwise for a bit, but by the end, I had way more coins than I could ever spend.

It's just a bland and unfulfilling game. Keep in mind that I'm not even comparing it with PM 1 and 2... I've only played an hour of those games each a long time ago.

Isn't the TC out to prove that Sticker Star is the best game in the series?

If viewed in it's own light(not in comparison to previous PM's or with expectations from previos PM's) it's actually a superb game, one of the best I've played all year. It's not a full RPG, it's an RPG-like adventure, kind of almost Zelda-like, which I l love. It's more "Mario" than previous PM's, a hammer is a better fit than a sword IMO.

It's charming and funny, and light, there IS a story just not something epic, no hobbit style "epic journey", but the characters you meet are memorable and still evoke emotion.

It's not what a lot people wanted or expected, but people saying it's crap is completely inaccurate and unfair. Like I said: It's an EXCELLENT game when you look at it objectively and in it's own light.


Except,no it isnt. The game is crap as a Paper Mario game. As it's own game,it's pretty decent.
