Top 10 Reasons Why Modern Mario Party Sucks

Mario party is one of my favorite franchises. It used to be amazing, however, the newer games suck. Here's a few reasons why. This is from Mario party 9 onward.

The Top Ten

1 The car gimmick

This is SO BORING. Why are we all forced to sit in a car instead of move around and do whatever we want like in the originals? - DCfnaf

It really takes away the individual aspect of the game. You can't go your own way anymore. It feels more like a team game now. - Randomator

Nintendo development team in a nutshell - Remove anything the fans loved, and then come up with an excuse as to why. - Swellow

It's just boring... get rid of it. - DaisyandRosalina

2 Less frequent minigames

This, combined with the linear board and the car gimmick, make the game BORING. Loved the originals, especially 2. - DCfnaf

The minigames are the real games changers. - Randomator

3 Bowser is nicer

In the old game he would charge 20-50 coins, take a star or Bowser revolution - Randomator

I actually like 9 and Star Rush but I dislike Island Tour and 10 is the worst besides Advance.

Bowser being nicer is true except for Mario Party 10. - DaisyandRosalina

4 No chance time

Chance time was the make or break moment. Anyone could win. It's a shame it hasn't returned - Randomator

Every time I landed on this space, I shouted "NO! " - DCfnaf

5 No items

The only items are special dice. Yay - Randomator

Which games are you talking about?

Except in Star Rush. - DaisyandRosalina

6 Boring board gimmicks

Most are avoidable all together - Randomator

7 Boards are linear

Yes, I loathe this. You sit in a car and go on a linear path to the end. Boring. - DCfnaf

8 All luck, no skill

Isn't that Mario Party in a nutshell? - DCfnaf

I actually think that the older games required more skill for decision making - Randomator

9 No coins

True - DCfnaf

10 No stars

True except in Star Rush. - DaisyandRosalina

True - DCfnaf

The Contenders

11 Certain characters from past games being removed
12 Boring Minigames

We go from bumper balls and mushroom mix to playing cards.. yay - Gametheorysucks
