Top 10 Reasons Why Super Paper Mario Is Better Than Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year DoorSuper Paper Mario will always be better than Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. In fact, this is the best Mario RPG ever besides Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the 7 Stars. I will never know how Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is more higher-rated than Super Paper Mario.
The Top Ten
Both stories were FANTASTIC in my opinion. Frankly, I love both games so much, so I wish people would just stop saying "Super Paper Mario is better and TTYD is TRASH" for stupid reasons that don't affect your enjoyment of the game too much. If you legitimately can't like it due to preference and opinion, then fine, just recognize why others like it and don't dismiss something based on something trivial like graphics, Peach's voice, or the systems they were on.
Only true thing on the list, best storyline ever, but ttyd was still great
Despite the abstract-looking art style, the characters are all complex and interesting, and the story is incredibly well written. It's probably the best story in any Mario game to date, surpassing even TTYD in my opinion. - DemonSpider253V 3 Comments
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door may be a great game that we have all come to know & love, but Super Paper Mario is a groundbreaker! Super Paper Mario is the best Paper Mario game ever!
1. paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door 9.75/10
2. Paper Mario 9.75/10
3. Super Paper Mario 9.0/10
4. Paper Mario: Sticker Star 6.0/10
As you can see, I am not putting down the original Paper Mario in favor of Paper Mario the Thousand Year Door! As you can also see, I am not putting down Super Paper Mario in favor of Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door! - HeavyDonkeyKong
Please don't judge a game like this! Of all the reasons, you chose one that doesn't affect the quality of the story, gameplay, music, bosses, etc. much, if at all? Don't be shallow and say a game is better just because of this! You all seem to love games like the original Paper Mario, Super Mario 64, and Super Mario World just fine, so don't suddenly turn around and judge TTYD for something stupid like this! Give both games an equal chance and THEN decide your opinion. It'll be respected a lot more that way, no matter what you think.
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is a great game!V 4 Comments
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door: you only have to save a town called Rougeport.
Super Paper Mario: you save the whole universe that is being taken over within the universe! BEST PLOT EVER!
So your reason for TTYD being bad is that TTYD is bad? THAT MAKES NO SENSE! GIVE US A LEGITIMATE REASON and maybe we wouldn't fight to disagree since we would be able to respect your opinion, since it would actually then be legitimate.
COMPLETELY disagree. I mean, SPM is the groundbreaker, yes, but TTYD is still one of the best Mario games out there. It's my fourth favorite Mario RPG. - GarythesnailV 1 Comment
Yay! It's Leslie Swan, who voiced her in Super Mario 64! Compared to Jen Taylor, Swan's voice is better and much less annoying.
I liked Princess Peach's voice in Mario Kart 64 and Super Mario 64! Made her more charming.
So when she's kidnapped by Bowser she let herself get kidnapped, but not by count bleck?
Annoying voices have nothing to do with the gameplay. - HeavyDonkeyKong
The Thousand Year Door has such confusing texts. And it makes no sense.
Super Paper Mario is a lot more confusing, well at least for me anyway
Super paper mario is A-B ttyd is an amazing adventure thru a huge landV 1 Comment
Well to me it seemed somewhat urban with you getting mobbed in the beginning and getting involved with a gang.
None of them are medieval in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong
The original Paper Mario has 8/10 perfect music!
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door has 4/10 perfect music.
Super Paper Mario has 10+/10 perfec music!
Paper Mario: Sticker Star has 1/10 perfect music.
Agreed. Both have great soundtracks, but the music of SPM is just amazing. - Garythesnail
How is SPM better then TTYD you guys can't see how flawed super paper mario is because of damn graphics and story the gameplay os very flawed and TTYD has flawless gameplay SPM is A TO B I hate that in gamesV 2 Comments
The bosses all have special elements and attacks, as well as weaknesses. The battle system has much more room for freedom
If only this list became "Top 10 Reasons Why Super Paper Mario is Way Better Than Paper Mario: Sticker Star".
The pixls are needed to perform basic actions that you usually can get in TTYD without partners. They are kinda annoying to switch between and have a bit less story.V 1 Comment
This is true, and it all comes down to opinion, but if anything, I liked how TTYD was less Super Mario bases since it was something new and not just another generic Mario game (although those are still good). I absolutely love both SPM and TTYD, but to me, the things that make the Paper Mario series and the rest of the Mario RPG's so great is that it stays within the Mario universe and logic, but thinks outside the box and does amazing new things you wouldn't normally see in a Mario game...until Nintendo changed the series to become more generic and less about what Paper Mario was all about! I like Sticker Star a bit, and Color Splash looks decent, but having them be just similar to normal Mario without story, original characters, original bosses, and RPG elements ruins what the series was meant to do! Bring back games like the first 3 and we'll all be happier.
This is one of the few true reasons on the list. SPM is my all-time favorite game, but I haven't played TTYD. It looks fun, though. I just feel that Super Paper Mario had such a brilliant idea, it likely knows no rivalry. - GarythesnailV 1 Comment
Flipside Is Better And Have An Opposite Version Of It! And For Rogueport... I Never Play That Game Before And Rogueport Sucks - CuteGirlJigglypuff
I found Rogueport more interesting because it was a much less peaceful place. Lots of crime outside the west area. - HeavyDonkeyKong
Rogueport looks like a reference to racism.
Flipside looks like it was made by godly hands.
Rogueport is better more areas flipside is good but it just kinda lacks for meV 3 Comments
Its because the Wii has better graphics than the gamecube, people! - HeavyDonkeyKong
The Wii is more advanced than the gamecube and 64. That's only reason! - HeavyDonkeyKong
Paper Mario is LD (LD stands for low definition), yet a classic! Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is and (and stands for normal definition) but is insipid! Super Paper Mario is HD (HD stands for high definition) and is perfect! Paper Mario: Sticker Star is fairly HD and the worst Paper Mario EVER! Paper Mario for Wii U would be very HD.
And yes, Super Paper Mario has irresistible color. Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is long yet looks unfinished!
Yeah, I said it! Super Paper Mario is 1000 times better than Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door.V 1 Comment
I never liked Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door anyways. Worst Paper Mario ever. Now I am not saying that Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is all bad. I mean, Super Paper Mario is awesome & will be forever over a thousand times better than Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door!
Wow u critizize a game for being too long? Wow super paper mario is like the same length u lazy idiots who hate ttyd super paper mario is good in facts its great! But I fail to see how it's better then TTYD
Paper Mario has quite a strong plot, though it gets a mixed to positive reception.
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door did not nail it. It's so unoriginal and the paper airplane was UNREASONSABLE!
Super Paper Mario has the best plot ever, conquering the universe within the universe, COOL!
Paper Mario: Sticker Star has a plot which you would want to never check out.
So is suppose that modern warfare 3 for the Wii is better than super smash bros melee for the gamecube? Yeah right! - HeavyDonkeyKong
So you're judging the games based on what console it's on?
This shouldn't matter enough! If you like the Wii better than the Gamecube or vice versa, that's fine, but don't judge a game's quality based on the console it's on!V 1 Comment
Use Bowser with cutscenes (like the one in chapter three when facing Dimentio) and also the dialogue between peach and Francis. Pixels can be funny too - Nothing0000000000000003
Super Paper Mario has much better dialogue anyways than TTYD. TTYD SUCKS!
I did not find very many side quests in Super Paper Mario.
This is also just an opinion. Also, this is just a generic name that would be for any Mario game, while TTYD is more specific and interesting, even if you don't like it.
