What the title said.

I myself feel rather pessimistic and think it's bit likely PM will become much like Sticker Star was.

The majority of people playing Mario-games? People who tend to enjoy the game rather than the story. And seeing as IS will be now taking a note of that when thinking about the audience they gear the future Paper Mario-games for (SPM Story Survey in Iwata Asks), we better not expect any regular PM-game for maybe long, LONG time.

So I dunno, maybe this might mean the death of PM for the ones who loved the RPG titles but will be just fine for every other Mario-gamer out there. A good thing or a bad thing? You decide.

Not going to make a definitive answer until I clarify one thing:

Is it what we THINK THINK the series will do, or what we WANT to think the series will do?

Because as much as I hope they do not, they have already stated that they were planning on making Sticker Star the standard... and I just cannot see that honestly helping them. At all.

Metacritic shows this game having 77% and most of people love the hell out of the game. So I think it's unevitable, they'll be just be making this the new standard and leaving the longtime fans eating dust.

Anyway, I'll try to find this game low in price from somewhere and then buy it tho. Not gonna give 50-70 for this one. (Yep, some Mario-games are 70 here depending on where ya buy em. Sweet.)

76% actually. Compared to the original's 93%, TTYD's 87% and SPM's 85%.

Hopefully IS will just refuse to make another Paper Mario unless Miyamoto lets them do what they want next time.

The original Paper Mario game was great and the sequel was even better. Super Paper Mario wasn't as good but it was a spin-off so we weren't worried about the future of the series. However, Sticker Star proved to be a huge disappointment, it's basically a polished but soulless game. Intelligent Systems should be ashamed of themselves and Shigeru Miyamoto should stop imposing his "creativity".

In my opinion: TTYD > 64 > Super > SS

If they continue this way, it will only be going downhill and be like NSMB.

It probably won't, because the paper mario series never followed the other much. The next one will most likely be a system like the TTYD again.

Well they said Sticker Star was the new standard, so yeah, the rest will be like this, meaning I have no love for the series now other than the first 2.
#9Toad_and_Pit_coPosted 12/3/2012 4:05:57 PM
Well the partner idea was scrapped, right? So this basic standard thing will probably be scrapped too.

Just my guess.

Hmm...

I wonder if it's too late to jump ship to the Mario & Luigi series.

How are they compared to PM and TTYD?
