Top Ten Reasons Why Bowser's Inside Story Is the Best Mario Game

The Top Ten

The story isn't about saving Princess Peach

Instead it's Mario and Luigi trying out of Bowser's body and Bowser trying to beat Fawful and reclaim his castle. - Therandom

Well Fawful needed Peach to awaken the Dark Star in the first place. Prove me wrong, I'm waiting. - Pikachu7586

1. Bowser's Inside story 9.5/10
2. Partners in time 9.0/10
3. Superstar Saga 9.0/10
4. Dream Team never played it before. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Well some of the parts is also about saving the princess.
But the main thing is saving the world - Super64Mario

It's a good story

It is really good for Mario, Mario is not a bad series just the story gets samey. - Therandom

Bowser is playable

I loved playing as Bowser, especially using the minion attacks. - Garythesnail

It was nice for Bowser to be playable. - Therandom

Good powers ups

Super Mario 64 has the best power ups ever. The N64 version of Super Mario 64 is the best Mario game ever!

Actually, no. Scratch that. Most Super Mario games (especially in the late 20th Century) are runner-ups on my list of best Mario games. My top favorite Mario game is SMRPG. It was way wittier and stronger than M&L: BIS (to the point where it looks like an educational Mario game in comparison)

The humor

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time has way better and stronger humor.

One of the game's greatest strengths. I prefer Dream Team and Superstar Saga over it, but it's a great game. - Garythesnail

Bowser and Luigi have hilorious moments. - Therandom

It has a good length.
You can free roam

You can free roam as Bowser, and Mario and Luigi in and out Bowser's body. - Therandom

No annoying characters are really in it

Chip is better than Peach. - Therandom

Fawful Fawful, known in Japan as Gerakobits, is a fictional character appearing in the Mario & Luigi series of role-playing video games developed by AlphaDream.

Fawful steals the show. - Therandom

I don't think Fawful (who could be voiced by AniMat) is as witty as he was in this game's predecessors, but you are by no means wrong that Fawful always steals the show. - The Ultimate Daredevil to Therandom

There was a sequel

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team was the horrible sequel. Partners in Time and Superstar sage are way better than Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time.

Dream Team rocked! It has a lot of things in common with Bowser's Inside Story, so when you think about it, BiS is probably the game that laid the most foundation(behind Superstar Saga, of course)! - Garythesnail

That 3ds game Dream Team. - Therandom

The Contenders

The Final Boss Theme

That moment I heard the "SHOWTIME! " and this played...mind blown. - Garythesnail

Breathtaking and beautiful. I enjoyed this very much so.

No Bowser Jr.

I really can't stand Bowser Jr. I'm glad he's not in this game.

Well he’s going to be in the remake. - Tyler730

A few great, catchy, serious and unpredictable pieces of music that sound like they belong in a Mario RPG that is older than Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

The music pieces I am talkign about are Cavi Cape's music, the underwater music and the Bowser vs. Dark Bowser music. - Kieran Stark aka The Ultimate Daredevil, the man that put this item on the list

It is a Mario & Luigi Game
It Was a Step Up from Partners in Time

I don't hate partners in time infect I actually prefer partners in time over bowser's inside story
