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

If you ignore the 1/10 votes you have to ignore the 10/10 votes, it's only fair right? Also I gave 6/10 poor game with a good story.

I wouldn't even class this as a Mario rpg. But my thoughts on the game, after recently replaying it.

1) starts off good
2) is far too easy
3) platforming sucks, barely exists.
4) the other characters are pointless as you're always switching to Mario since he's the only one who can flip.
5) a lot of the levels are mind bogglingly repetitive and dull. The wheel running, the tournament world, the blank white level, the mine cart section (which is boring and goes on for ages for no reason)
6) having to do the 100 pit THREE TIMES..what was the point in that?
7) the story having nothing to do with Mario, or anything even in the Mario universe, the game has nothing to do with Mario, it could be literally any character and it'll make no difference.

so yeah... I don't think it's a very good game, atleast the story is interesting

The difference:
The 1/10 votes are clearly troll votes, and they make up far less of the total votes.

Are you missing the point a bit? I think so. The aggregate of scores will still be high even if the 10s and 1s are removed if it is a good game.

How many trolls on this topic are far minor to the amount of people who will give a 10 because it is a Nintendo game? Surely you can see that?

Not getting mad, just pointing out that logically his calculations that void the 1/10 votes are invalid. If metacritic did that I think there would be a fair amount of outrage?

I actually don't think those people exist. It's just something made up by people who hate nintendo and can't understand why someone would like their games.

I have literally never met anyone in my life who has said a game was good purely because of the company that made it. If a game is trash it is trash and people will say so, regardless of who makes it.

If you encounter this type of thing on a regular basis you need to learn how to ignore extremely obvious trolls.
