Top Ten Reasons Modern Mario Party is Way Better Than Old Mario PartyHere is my list on why Modern Mario Party is way better than "Get Lost" Party 1-8. If you hate my list, that's ok, but remember opinions, I respect those people that like 1-8 but not those who force me to like those. I'm not trying to offend anyway, just expressing my opinion on why I like modern Mario Party more, if you find my comments biased and aggressive, keep in mind that I get really angry sometimes when my favourite video game of all time receives unneeded hate.
1-8 were pretty much the same thing except different minigames and boards. But they used the same formula. Everyone moves where they want, minigame get stars and over and over. So BORING! It felt too long, the modern Mario Parties are all unique! 9 was revolutionary and the best mario game of all time, nostalgia, it added Car mechanic, boss battles and a bonus board, and three new characters, Koopa Troopa, Shy Guy and Kamek, I know DS had Boss Battles too but those bosses sucked. Island Tour was the first one the 3DS and each board in that game had a unique aspect, 10 added two new modes; Bowser Party and Amiibo Party, and two new playable characters, Rosalina and Spike. Star Rush added a new mode, Toad Scramble and a real hub world and scrapped Party Mode. Not so tough now old fanbase!?
I agree, although I still have a soft spot for the original on DS. But the new ones are more dynamic
I know DS had Boss Battles too. But that was handheld and not modern. This was the first console Mario Party to include Boss Battles, not only that but most of the Boss battles are GOOD! Chain Chomp and King Boo were amazing bosses with amazing soundtrack.
I love the boss battles because they are fun.
Play the final boss battle in Mario Party Island Tour, that's one of the most amazing songs of all time! Or the bosses in MP9, amazing soundtrack.
The later soundtracks are kind of bland, but there are a few good soundtracks scattered here and there.
Koopa Kid was the laziest piece of character in the Mario Party games! God think they removed him completely from Mario Party 8. Bowser Jr. is way better, and so are Koopalings and Broodals.
I added this item so that you can read this and I will right now analyze the annoying fanbase of the first 9 games. Let's see, why do people hate modern mario party, they hate for the worst reasons ever! It's different! Shut up losers! Mario Party 1-8 felt super similar, one tiny feature doesn't make a game different! 5-7 were pretty much the same thing. If all Mario Party games were the same you would also hate it, these people have never heard of the word "repetive"! Even Hudson Soft thought the games were too similar, so SHUT UP!
At least arguing is more fun than sitting in a car.
For those who complain there never appears new characters in modern games. Play the modern MP games. Amazing characters!
I like the shy guys
I like Bowser Party, because you actually get to play as Bowser; however, I also understand why people don't like it.
This is by far the most entertaining mode in the series, it was sadly only in 10 but it was awesomne.
This one I can agree with.
They all memorable, I only remember like 3-4 minigamews from each old Mario Party games, wait, I dn't remember any minigame from 6. Shows how much more memorable the modern are.
Most of the modern ones are boring and luck based only a few are enjoyable in my opinion
This was always a thing. Except in later Mario Party games, everyone got something, but it fluctuated based on performance in minigames, as opposed to only the winner getting the prize.
That is way more fair than older minigames!
I agree with the reasons on this list.
This I actually like. Sometimes I just DO NOT want to play with 4 players, CPUs or otherwise.
Coins have appeared since Super Mario Bros.! Why aren't you happy with a new thing! Yo do acually get a star at the end of each board so shut up! Would you be glad if Nintendo added Pink Gold Peach Coins?
It's not that big of a deal. Who cares if it's coins or mini stars?
All you did in the first 8 was rolling the dice, walking, minigame, and repeat. For like at least an hour. Hey! I've not come to play Mairo Party to see the same repeated over and over again.
The boards in the newer Mario Party games are way more creative. Some of them resemble places from the Mario franchise, which is pure awesome references! I mean, look at MP2 and 5. These boards are so uncreative; all boards there end with either Land or Dream. Western Land, Pirate Land, PIRATE DREAM, FUTURE DREAM! TOY DREAM! Bowser LAND!?!?!?! What kind of names are those!? The modern Mario Party games had good boards, not these uncreative Bowser's "nightmares"!
