Top 10 Biggest Problems With Classic/Old Mario Party

As you all might know, I really do NOT like the older Mario Party games (aside from the last four), and here are the biggest problems with them. Please note that despite the comments I have made below, I still respect anyone's opinion who likes old Mario Party and don't like Mario Party.
The Top Ten
1 It's slow and boring

So, people call modern Mario Party "as humanely boring as possible," according to a user on the site, when parts of the old Mario Party games take way longer. In the classic games, all you did was hit the dice, wait for the other players to roll, then play the mini-game, and repeat for 10 or more rounds. Meanwhile, in modern Mario Party, you always move forward, making sure you don't lose mini-stars. Which sounds more boring to you?

2 Many minigames are forgettable

I really loved the mini-games in Mario Party 8. That was a classic Mario Party game that had some really cool mini-games. Even Mario Party 7 had some pretty cool ones, but the rest had extremely forgettable mini-games (special mentions go to Mario Party 5). They are just so forgettable, and the ones that aren't forgettable are just plain bad.

Dungeon Duos, Booksquirm, Cardiators, even Tug of War are more memorable than any non-boss, non-extra mini-game from MP9/10.

3 No boss battles

This is one of the reasons Mario Party: Star Rush is superior to all classic Mario Party games combined. There are boss battles in that game, making the game more exciting and giving it more of an objective. The only classic Mario Party to have bosses is the DS version. The rest have none, making them so boring.

The DS version is always my favorite! And I also like a lot of other MP games too.

4 The formula is repetitive

Roll dice, wait for computer players, play a mini-game, repeat - what's so non-boring about this? There are no boss battles, no nothing. You just do the same thing for 10 or more rounds. The entire thing is anti-climactic.

5 Koopa Kid

They even made three clones out of him. How about Bowser Jr., Roy, Larry, and Iggy instead of the Koopa Kid and his three clones?

One of, if not the worst, Mario Party characters out there!

Also kind of a forgotten Mario character.

6 The fanbase

Basically, you would repeat the same thing in old Mario Party games, and people call modern party games boring just because they're new? Pathetic.

These fans get on my nerves more than Sticker Star haters. They are nostalgia addicts that hate even one slight change.

7 Its fans hate Mario Party: Star Rush for having a certain formula but give super Mario Party a pass while having the exact same formula

They just want to bash anything that's related to modern Mario Party, yet ignore all the flaws of Mario Party 2 and the rest of its gang.

8 All the games feel the same

This is one of the reasons Mario Party needed a change.

9 Boards aren't relevant to the Mario franchise

None of the boards have anything to do with Mario at all. Compare that to Mario Party 9: Blooper Beach is a beach world inspired by World 4 from NSMBWii, or Bowser Station, which is inspired by Super Mario Galaxy, or even DK's Jungle Ruins, which is inspired by Donkey Kong Country Returns. The boards in the old games have little to no relevance at all to the Mario franchise.

10 The rotating control stick mini games from Mario Party 1
The Contenders
11 Bland atmosphere

The old Mario Party games just feel so bland when compared to the rest (I will agree Island Tour was a bit bland too). But let's look at the classic boards: Future Dream from Mario Party 5 is like the most boring board ever made. There's nothing unique about it. It's just some platforms in space, and that's it.

Rainbow Dream has the same feel but is even worse due to being even more bland.
