Paper Mario: Sticker Star Paper Mario: Sticker Star Product Image

So let me get this straight: Sticker Star is hated for being different... in a spin-off series that prides itself on being different. Am I missing something here?

This game is trash - Randomator

Better than the thousand year bore

Mario Sports Superstars Mario Sports Superstars Product Image

It doesn’t seem to be as popular as other Mario sports games - Randomator

Hotel Mario Hotel Mario Product Image

To be fair, you have to have a high IQ to understand Hotel Mario. The cutscene's humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of how toasters toast toast, most of the jokes will go over a typical player's head. There's also Luigi's overweight outlook, which is deftly woven into his character - his hungry philosophy draws heavily from how he is 130+ lbs but only 5.7'', for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depth of the gameplay and jokes, to realise it is not only truly great, but a masterpiece. As a consequence person who dislikes Hotel Mario should be toasted with toast in a toaster- of corse they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Luigi's classic phrase "I hope she made lots of spaghetti," which itself is a cryptic reference to Luigi's obsession with the famous Italian dish, Spaghetti. What simpletons, how I pity them. And yes by the way, I do have a Hotel Mario tattoo. And no, you can't see ...more

THIS GAME IS AMAZING. Its just brilliant. I was hooked from start to finish, the games great story and cutscenes made me really engaged with the plot, and I have to mention the voice acting is top notch. The gameplay, OH BOY IS IT GOOD. You go around some elevators shutting doors and once you have shut them all, you win. This gameplay may seem boring on paper, but the execution here was honestly perfect. It requires a lot of skill and I loved every second I was playing.

Why is this hidden gem not number one? Excellent cutscenes, fantastic voices, classic Mario style, great plot, so good! Why do people hate on this game?

I think two posters here are possibly being sarcastic.
