• All four games play way too similarly
• The artstyle isn’t particularly appealing
• The co-op multiplayer is terrible because there’s so little room to move around freely
• The music is recycled again and again
• The same world themes are used in every game
• Way too easy to 100% the games
• In all games except the DS one, the bosses are always the Koopalings

I don’t know why so many people like this series.

1. True, but why would they drastically change up how gameplay works anyway? It's mostly just jump and move as basic controls...you know, like pretty much all Mario games. They added a few things here and there over the course of the series, but not much. I don't really think it needed to change much anyway.

2. Not a fact, but a personal opinion of yours.

3. IMO, it depends on how many players you have. Having two players wasn't so bad. 3 or more was a bit chaotic, but that was kinda the point in the first place. Some people like playing with lots of players when not playing entirely seriously.

4. Not sure. Haven't played the game in awhile, but recycled or no I don't remember being annoyed by it or anything. ...but I guess if I can't really remember it that well, it wasn't that memorable at least.

5. Can't remember entirely, as I haven't played in a while, but I kinda recall there being lots of reused themes in the series. Not all of them though.

6. Opinion again, not a fact. Depends on how good you are at finding secrets. Also, it was aimed mostly at children, so what exactly do you expect?

7. That...seems like it might be true. Whether it is a negative or positive depends on the person though, but I'd say reusing bosses multiple times was kinda lazy on their part. Some people might not have cared though, and just cared about the fun factor instead.

...Why do you have a problem with people liking the series? I don't understand why people liking a game is such a big problem for you.

I love the games! But you're not wrong on a fair number of those things.

To be fair, though: co-op on 2D Platformers appears to be hard to get right. There's always a player that's constantly bubbling up (or whatever the game uses to pull you to the front) whilst playing.

True, I don’t find them to be good. I find them to be great games.
