Best Mario Party Games

The Top Ten

1 Mario Party 2

Hey guys if you love this game and have a brand new wii or wii u, or even an old one at that you should go to nintendo club where you can register your system for coins that you spend on free rewards. One of these prizes is this game for only 150 coins! Which is not that many infact the dsi is still worth 100 coins if you register.

This game did it best in my opinion. It took everything that was fun in original Mario Party, cut the stuff that wasn't, and added in some new treats to make the games even more hilariously fun. I'm not quite sure what it was about this one, but my fondest and funniest Mario Party memories are all from #2.

This is the best game in the series. First of all, Mario is cool, and his hat is cool. Secondly, you can be a Cowboy and shoot people and kill them. Thirdly, Bowser is a jerk and no one like him. Fourthly, you can play as Cloud from Final Fantasy as an unlock able character. Case closed

This is THE best Mario Party of all. No questions asked. For the simple reason of "The Mini-Game Coaster.' That's it. Debate won.

2 Mario Party 7

This game in my opinion is the best overall. The mini games are fantastic and the boards are creative and fun! Also this game brought cool elements like a 8 player mode and Bowser time. Well, I hated Bowser time. The only problem I had with this game was Bowser time because it was just lame and unfair. But anyways, Mario Party 5 was the first Mario party game I ever played. But when I got this game I was really hooked into the series. I also like how every board is completely different from each other. From having you climbing a entire mountain for a star to paying Chomp Chomp's to squish you opponents to steal their stars, it's the best game overall and has a great variety!

The mini-games, the items, even the boards are all ingenious! You've got to watch your step in this one, other wise you could land on someone-else's space that they set using orbs! Not to mention the fact that you can play with 8 people as well, so no one gets left out this way! There's so many paths to choose, items to use plus coins, stars and items to steal! Race to the top in pagoda peak or test your luck in neon heights, every single board has its own special way to play that's sure to keep you on your toes! This is, without a doubt, the best Mario Party game and one that you'll be playing for years to come!

I've heard people say this is one that is forgettable because nothing about it was original. Um... this is THE GREATEST Mario Party Game ever! It has a really great Character roster (even if it was a little shocking that Birdo was included, which is fine), the around-the-world theme was cool, the stages are all cool, the mini games are terrific, and the 8 player thing was innovative and cool, even if the controls were difficult! - marble

Best one ever

3 Mario Party 6

This is one of the best, Almost al of its mini-games are memorable and leave you feeling great after each one. It is the perfect balance of Friend ship destroying and friend ship enhancing. The only problem with this one is reason to replay, after you unlock everything there is no reason to play it again alone unless you really want to play it for fun which it always seems like a good enough reason to me. Very enjoyable to play!

Orbs is just what the series needed. This has to be the best Mario party game ever. And it's not just nostalgia talking. This game is just fun the way it is. Fun mini-games, orbs that allow a lot of skill, and overall, just a great decent Mario party game.

I love the mic feature and I'm good at most of the mini games, except Cog Jog and Stage Fright. I also think the day and night feature is cool, and it is definitely my favorite game for the Game Cube.

Cast away bay is my personal favorite in the series and faire square is very popular as a favorite in the series so it has the best maps and really good orbs as well as very good mini games

4 Mario Party 8

This game really made me want to play it over and over again on the same boards. I remember staying up all night playing this with my friend. The mini games are great too. I love playing as the little squid guy (i think his name is blooper), and yoshi! This is my favorite Mario Party, and always will be. I wish I still had this game, but my dog had to get the disc in her mouth and the disc cracked. :( I love this game though, and always will.

It has a few good boards, about half of the mini-games are fun and the story mode was a bit boring. Its fun the first few times you play it but it lacks in replay ability. It is the last one to follow the original formula. Improvements it good have had would be not spend to much time on motion controls and make the mini-games more action packed instead of super simple and slow.

Mario Party 8 was my first Mario party and it was the best one to start of with. I remember staying up till 5 I'm the morning playing all the boards in the star battle arena trying to unlock the Bowser board and I managed to do it on my 3rd try. It was awesome. The minigames were great, except shake it up, the " hardest" mini game ever. My favorite board either the shy guy train or the koopa city. And the best character is hammer bro. Why is birdo a character though

This needs to be HIGHER THAN #4! The minigames are fantastic! And also the graphics look awesome! And it has really cool boards! My favorite is Shy Guy's Perplex Express. It has fantastic music and a nice snowy mountain landscape in the background (at least I think the mountains are snowy.)! MP8 also has one of the best character selections EVER! And I also like the Final Bowser Minigame! Excellent game!

5 Mario Party 4

Though Mario Party 4 belongs to a more advanced console than the N64, the GameCube, the game still feels like a N64 Mario Party game in every way. Not only that, but the Mini Games were excellent and Donkey Kong was still playable in this game. Mario Party 4 is definitely the go-to game for Mario Party fans.

Mario Party 4 belongs at Number 1. It has some very unique Mini Games such as Paths of Peril, Beach Volley Folley, and Dungeon Duos. As if that weren't enough, Mario Party 4 also has a Present Room, where you can view all the presents you've earned in the game, including each of the characters' birthday presents from story mode and presents earned from Mini Games. This is BY FAR the best Mario Party game the series has to offer.

This is my favorite of the ones I've played/seen. The mini-games are well-designed, the graphics hold up, the boards are streamlined but not too simple, and items are still items (I really don't like the capsules/orbs/whatever). You really need to put in effort to add to your coin total, so if too much bad luck makes you want to rage quit, I can see why you might not like it.

Why are you arguing graphics when obviously there are 5-10. The graphics don't actually hold up well. - Gamefreak23788

I actually haven't played this yet, but I kinda have a feel since I've played all the other ones except 1 and 3. - cabennett18

6 Mario Party 3

Me and my roommates will occasionally crack open a case of beers and play Mario Party games... it gets very competitive. MP3 is just by far the best. It has, what I like to call the perfect trifecta of balance. # 1: the luck factor: The sensitivity or lack there of in your old fashioned run of the mill N64 controller adds to chaotic fun of the games. Of course, the dice can always land in or out of your favor, and there are a few mini games, that are based on the results of only lady lucky herself... and of course the dreaded chance time.

# 2: Strategic factor: Even if you're playing a game where you're struggling to win most of the mini games, a few well executed items, or precisely won battle games, or coin steals can help you weasel your way back into contention. It expanded the affects of items set in MP2 by allowing you to carry more than one (i can't remember how many times a plunder chest put a complete stranglehold on the item game in Mario party 2). # 3: Skill ...more

Mario Party 3 is the best one for me, but that's probably biased by the fact that it's just about the only game I had of the Mario Party series when I was young. I also got 8, but it wasn't quite as enjoyable. I don't know why.

It had a lot of luck based mini-games (something most Mario Party games are now infamous for), but it had great music, 1 versus 1 duel maps and was the first to let you carry 3 items at once, along with the first to have a legitimate single-player mode, it was a fantastic way to close out the original Mario Party N64 Trilogy, and sadly it was overlooked due to it's late release in 2001 (the same year the GameCube came out), and it's too bad, because it's an incredibly overlooked great game, and the best in the series in my opinion, closely followed by Mario Party 2.

By far the best Mario party Mario party 2 is the worst

7 Mario Party 5

This needs to be #1 Since the mini-games are fantastic, Like Pushy Penguins for example, There are a ton of characters to pick, The Party Boards are fantactic, Rainbow Dream was pretty good as well Best Mario Party game EVER

I used to beg my dad to let me rent this game. It was very expensive so I used to rent the expensive games all the time. I really enjoyed this one

Its one of the most memorable games in the series it has some flaws but not that you can remember after you just had an amazing time. It has a really good story mode that no other game has even come close to replicating. The minigames were amazing and most of the boards felt perfect. Only improvement would be to expand some of the boards that felt a bit small.

This should be AT THE TOP! And for lots of reasons like Minigames, The Capsule System, and Super Duel Mode!

8 Mario Party 9

People need to stop hating this one. It's not perfect with the vehicles and all, but I found it really good. I love all the boards and especially the boss mini-games. It was creative and I was very hyped for this game. It is probably my favorite Mario Party with 8 and 5 close behind.

How is 8 so high? I like this one because it is the most unique of the series. The boss mini games are fun too, but there could have been more overall mini games. This is still one of my favorites.

An excellent Mario Party game with loads of different mini-games, great boards, loads of challenging unpredictability and plenty of opportunity for lighthearted and hilarious family fun. It also has great graphics, nice music and some good unlockables. I also think the cover art is beautiful, it's one of my favourite game covers ever.

It has Magikoopa, there.

9 Mario Party DS

Mario party on a long car drive... Excellent!

This was my first Mario Party game, and while it doesn't really count as one of the "main" games (didn't count as a number, on a handheld, etc.) it is still a really fun and creative game that got me into Mario Party!

I love this Mario party it's so great to go around with the ds and play it

I'm surprised this isn't higher up on the list!
Minigames have always been an integral part of the series, and in several cases it's either been quality or quantity with them, but this game hreads the needle in this case! A massive collection of minigames, but they are all unique in their own special way!

For this reason DS narrowly beats out 8 as my favorite.

10 Mario Party

In this game, playing with friends, you will rage your balls off and you interact with your friends better (although this game might ruin friendships). You're not gonna feel like you're going to win unlike in some of the newer Mario Party games (although you can still win sometimes when you think you don't have a chance and the game just turns around and players can still unexpectedly win) but in the original Mario Party you can almost assume that you're not going to win. With things like Chance Time, Boo, and happening spaces, everyone has a fair shot no matter how many stars and coins everyone has. 9 is the worst console Mario Party game and should not be ahead of this gem. Also, did I mention that this game has the best minigames. Many minigames from this game are better than most other minigames in Mario Party history, in my opinion. This game is legendary compared to the other Mario Party games. What's it doing at number 7? This should definitely be numero uno. It's too good to ...more

This Mario Party, the Original, certainly brings back the most memories, it had the most funnest and memorable mini games, it's the most hilarious, the 1P mode was excellent and chanllenging, and the board maps we're just so fun and big, you had to keep playing it.

I especially enjoyed the concept where you get to buy items from the shop, and collect 100 stars to unlock Bowser's level and then beat his to unlock the final level called, the Superstar.

Mario Party the Original has my vote.

Are you kidding? This is number 6? This game was a ground-breaking party game with some of the most addicting mini games in the entire series. Hands down my number 1.

Duh its already here

The Contenders

11 Mario Party: Island Tour

No basic boards, no story mode, no sense of accomplishment and WEAK gameplay

No 1vs 3 no 2 vs 2 and no battle games come on

Should be number 2 not number 11 this one is cool I like the dice blocks and how its decided in the place this is 2 and 1 is mario party9

OK, I know, its not your typical Mario Party, but the minigames and Bowser's Tower are really fun. Also has online play - cabennett18

12 Mario Party: Star Rush

How did Mario Party Island Tour get over this game! This game is a lot better than Mario Party Island Tour. It has got the most characters, boards, game modes out of all the series. I play this game about every day. They should make this game cost to $50

Looking good.

I got this game the day it came out, and instantly fell in love. That love was shattered 12 days later, when I unlocked everything. Now its boring. - cabennett18

This game may not look like a fun game. BUT IT IS SO FUN!

13 Mario Party 10

I think this game is fun because you get to play as Bow Wow / Bowser. They're many new things to do in Mario party 10 you even get to play on a game board. Plush I feel bad for Nintendo they worked so hard of thinking of such a great idea can everybody look on the bright side on this game?! But really look ON THE BRIGHT SIDE cause they made it together as a team. And if you buy it no matter what just play it even if you don't like it or HATE it for the love of Mario.

This game is fun. But not in the way of really fun some people are critics. But you just have to go with the floe and just go with it. And I really think that we could just say thank you to what Nintendo dose for us even though I am the one who dose not like video games and my brother envy video games a lot and I mean a LOT. Thank you have a very nice day or night this is a girl named Melanie very smart, kind, and annoying.

This game is good in all but it's lasting appeal didn't work well with the game! I more highly recommend Mario party 6!

Underrated - darthvadern

14 Mario Party-e
15 Mario Party Advance

This game has the least amount of playable characters! This game is also what ruined my belief in the Mario Party series! I'm not buying any other Mario Party Games!

All Gamecube Mario party games are great! You can't let this one let it all down! - marble

This game sucks, no multiplayer whatsoever. And the Cheep Cheep Swimming game is ridiculously hard

This game is stupid. It ruins the Mario Party series.

I know I sound crazy but I kinda liked the whole mushroom town thing. Other than that,
-The Gaddgets were completely useless
-They had a local multiplayer mode but it didn't even work
-They only had 1-Player minigames
Shall I continue? - cabennett18
