Top 10 Worst Mario Games

Mario has been in great video games, but there are some that failed.

The Top Ten

1 Hotel Mario

Mario:Nice 4 the princess to invite us 2 a picnic, eh Luigi?
Luigi:I hope she lotsa spaghetti!
This dudu totally copied everything from screwattack! - sagat2010

Hotel Mario gets 1 5.6 score.

Mario's Early Years: Preschool Fun gets a 1.2 score.

Mario's Time Machine gets a 2.7 score.

Mario Teaches Typing gets a 4.2 score.

Mario is Missing! Gets a 3.0 score.

Mario Clash gets a 9.3 score.

Mario Party 9 gets a 1.4 score.

Mario Teaches Typing 2 gets a 6.5 score.

Wrecking Crew gets a 9.0 score.

Super Mario Bros. 2 gets a 6.3 score.

This game is bad because the voice and music are terrible, the quest is saving the Princess, it's not made by Nintendo, and you CLOSE DOORS. It's easily the worst Mario game of all time, and you don't disagree with this.

Hotel mario gets 4/1000
Mario is missing gets 29/1000
Mario's time machine gets 83/1000
mario's early years gets 10/1000
mario teaches typing gets 172/1000
mario party 9 gets 293/1000
mario clash gets 333/1000
mario bros atari 2600 gets 226/1000
paper mario sticker star gets 171/1000
mario tennis ultra smash gets 0/1000

2 Mario is Missing!

What does this even have to do with Mario being missing besides all the way in the beginning and the end? And why do we have to return King Kong to New York? Why are we even returning stuff, we should be saving Mario! This game.._. - HELLADERE120

This game states right away that Mario won't even be in it. That should tell you everything.

Imagine if Princess Peach angrily yelled with her hair down "STAY BESIDE OR IN FRONT OF ME! NOT A CHOICE! "!

It's worse than Hotel Mario. At least Hotel Mario has a good concept, but this game…

3 Mario's Time Machine

You may think putting Mario in a time machine is awesome, but instead they put questions that we have to answer by learning the stuff in school.

This should be #1. While Hotel Mario definitely does suck, at least it's not educational. This game is about taking stolen artifacts back to their certain times and places and there are quizzes involved within the game too. How could anyone have fun with this game? It doesn't even teach you anything because you don't even know where to go or what to do. Also, the quizzes have way too many possible answer choices. This game is unplayable and the most boring game ever created. Do not ever play it!

This game is educational. I thought this game would be fun traveling back in time and solving things in the past but no you have to answer hard questions and when you defeat Bowser he can't attack you if you are near him nothing happens but you have to jump on him to win. Do not buy this game worst game ever!

As a history nerd, this is inaccurate. - TeamRocket747

4 Mario's Early Years Pre-School Fun

This game had the worst voice in video game history. Example : You.. Chouse.. The.. Triangle

God! The graphic and sounds are horrible! What was Nintendo thinking?!?! I don't understand how kids can learn from this crappy game. Most pre schoolers don't even play video games!

Worst educational game ever! The music is boring, the games are too easy, and... And... AND... That... Voice...

Should make sega make sonic schoolhouse - thesoniclover

5 Mario Teaches Typing

The only problem is the music it was supposed to sound the music in Super Mario World, but the sound was awful in the early computers.

Mario Teaches Typing is good in some parts, but I'd give this game 5929 stars out of 10000 anyways.

Yeah it came out in the early 90s, like every kid in the world had a computer back then. Maybe they just wanted to release a game to help kids type because not many kids had computers and I can't remember using them every day in Primary school.

Lol. I guess if many people hate this game, Mario must be a bad teacher? (Sorry Mario.)

6 Mario Party Advance

This is truly the worst Mario game in existence. How is this not on the List?!?

Are you saying...that this game is worse than Hotel Mario? You've got to be kidding me.

This isn't even Mario Party. Trust me it's bad; so bad in fact that it's the worst selling Mario game of all time! - lolimmaninja

An absolute disgrace to Mario Party. Everyone know that playing boring mini games on a small, cramped screen by yourself is a lot of fun right? No, it's literally the exact opposite. - Cobalt

Why is Mario Party 9 and 10 hated so much? At least they had amazing minigames and you can play with other people. But this game isn't even fun. I haven't played it though but I will never will! - ShaunFan04

7 New Super Mario Bros. 2

I was surprised that I hated this game. Most of the levels are pretty easy an simple to beat, and the worst thing about NSMB2 is the whole coin thing. Having so many coins that can make you get 1-ups multiple times ruins the challenge in it. One of the worst mario games ever - TheGameBoy815

It sucks where gold coins broke my eyeballs. It is more unhealthy than McDonald's every week.

It seems cool that the main gimmick is coins. But what are the problems?

1. The Purpose

What Purpose is there to get loads of coins anyway? You never use those coins to buy ANYTHING so I fail to see the point.

2. When's the last time you got a game over?

You didn't because you gained massive wealth and lives.

3. The Bosses

Once again, Koopalings and Bowser. The Bowser fight here is the absolute worst in the series. It's a lazy rehash of the fight from New Super Mario Bros Wii!

Overall Rating: 5/10 - DCfnaf

I was going to say that they're used to unlock paths to Toad houses, but that's Star Coins. - Qryzx

Excluding The Lost Levels, this is hands down the worst main series game! Too easy, too unoriginal and uncreative. Only good thing is some of the levels and collecting a bunch of coins - darthvadern

8 Mario Clash

Why the hell is this game so high on this list? This game is brilliant!

Think about the graphics, decade when the game was released & the music! This game is awesome!

This game is AWESOME! The Virtual Boy Mario games are great, but Daisy still should've replaced Peach.

A lot of these are clearly added by someone who's never played Mario and was never taught the definition of the word "Fun". Super Mario Land is the only game where Daisy is saved, and dude when you're saying "Mario just walks around, you have to do quests" you're totally thinking of it the wrong way.

Ah, the Virtual Boy. Even when games on this thing were good, they still sucked due to being made for a torture device. - Zach808

9 Super Mario Galaxy

This is a joke, right? If not, I will pop a cap up your ass until you take this off the list.

This is a true joke. I mean, don't look at a Mario game and there's princess peach and say this game sucks. You have to examine the whole game and see it's ups and downs in a Mario game. - recaller

In my opinion Peach is actually a great character. Peach barely appears in this game, stop complaining, it's the highest rated game of all time. by the way Peach isn't rude here, she holds a giant festival for everyone in her kingdom to be happy and celebrate, and it's not her fault Bowser is a jerk. I know I nearly forgot she existed when I was trying to help Rosalina.

Are you serious? Who the heck put this game on the list?! This game is awesome and has beautiful graphics! Take this off the list now otherwise I will beat you up ( I know that sounds harsh but SERIOUSLY TAKE THIS OFF THE LIST! ) - Aaa2

Hey I love this game bich - thesoniclover

10 Paper Mario 3DS

This was a total switch from all the good moments in all other paper Mario games, I got this game thinking it was like the other paper Mario games when in reality was just the complete opposite. This game had no allies and bad game mechanics like the stickers. the stickers made everything for me not enjoyable, because if you didn't have the right amount of stickers you were screwed witch made the game even longer. this game also had hidden luigis hidden in some of the levels, which, in my prospective thought I could play as luigi (being better than Mario in many ways),but was sadly mistaken. Nintendo what is the point of finding all the luigis in the game if you only get a luigi flag and a luigi at the credits. the story line for this game was trash, heck I don't think there was a story line in that game like all the others. over all the only major point of why this game is terrible is the lack of level ups and allies

Let's explain why this is the ABSOLUTE WORST Mario RPG EVER!

1. No EXP.

NO EXPERIENCE FROM BATTLES! You defeat enemies to get coins, then you use those coins to buy more stickers and you use those stickers to fight enemies to get coins...yeah WHAT'S THE POINT?

2. The Story

Bowser kidnaps Peach, unlike EVERY OTHER Mario RPG! The story is super basic and nothing interesting happens! Then, there are these 8 Royal stickers I'm supposed to collect. But WHY? The only explanation we're given is that they're powerful! Why should I care about these dumb stickers? When have stickers ever mattered in the Mushroom Kingdom?

3. The Characters

No original characters. Every character is a Toad!

4. The Bosses

No unique bosses! All of them are a bigger version of a common enemy! Megasparkle Goomba, Mr. Blizzard, Petey Piranha. COME ON!



Do you know how many times I got lost ...more - DCfnaf

I always wanted to get this (underrated) game. But everyone's ruining my chances.

Get the game and judge it for yourself. Don't let our opinions influence yours. I personally hate this game. - DCfnaf

That's not the name for it - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 Mario Party 9

There are few features I like about this game. The graphics are good, and also the minigames, but the worst part is the party mode. I mean, what is there to like about party mode? You don't even get to wander around on your own. You are stuck in a car with three other people for the whole game. There is no certain turn limit, which is terrible. That means no last minute traps to play on your friends or relatives. The only power-ups are mushrooms. Most of the power-ups end the game even earlier! You only roll to six? Why don't you get to roll to ten? I mean, it makes sense to roll to six, but Mario Party isn't suppose to make sense! You don't get coins either! You collect stars for the whole game! Oh, what a touch to add on! The only up-side to party mode is the minigames. The minigames are awesome! I love them. They also unlocked all the minigames for you. Well almost all of them. So there is no fun in ulocking them. That means no moment when you scream in joy when you unlock that ...more - Ragingcow11

Hate this version...Mario Party has been ruined forever with the new silly system of all being together...the fun was being solo and fighting to get the star NOT all these silly little little stars which means the whole bonus star at the end is POINTLESS! - Dalice

Story mode is like very tricky in this game because if Kamek or Shy Guy wins, you'll have to restart the game!

Ugh... classic mario party fans found the list. I respect opinions, but this is one of my favourites - darthvadern

12 Mario Bros. (Atari 2000)

First, everything is a block, the pipes are blocks, the POW Block is just a bland, yellow block, even the coins are blocks!

Another thing, the non-bonus levels are EXACTLY THE SAME!

Finally, the soundtrack feels like it was recorded with a potato!

This is just a no and should never have existed. It's basically torture to a kid who only plays Atari. It's basically the ugly yet and barely functional sister to Flicker-man (Pac Man for Atari)

This game is kind of underrated.

I'd give it 7 stars out of 10.

This game was the worst port to have ever exist

13 Mario's Playschool

This game is so underrated & Super Princess Peach shall be top 1.

This game is good!

They should make mario mania and see how thatgoes - thesoniclover

How about the Mario franchise gets back to T.V. shows & starts a series called "Mario X' that completely rips off Sonic X?

"Mario X" will always be a crossover, & so will "Pac-Man X".

14 Mario Teaches Typing 2

The only decent thing about this game is the creepy Mario head.

Mario Teaches Typing 2 is so underrated!

I'd give this game 7025 stars out of 10000.

This game has too much haters!

Say, I'm hungry! Have you got me food?

15 New Super Luigi U

Are you idiots done yapping about Peach? I'm sick of hearing you complaining about her. I hate her, but no need to complain about her 24/7. - TheYoshiOverlord

When I heard this was going to be an extra feature, I was thrilled. We all know the dread of deciding who has to be Mario. Everyone is tired of being Mario. Can we be Luigi or a Toad? Nintendo screwed up with a time limit for another character. Why don't we just have a character selection in the title screen? You could be anyone you wanted to, and not just Mario or Luigi. You would get to choose from the original 4, no matter how many players.

The time limit makes it so annoying. The levels may be shorter but it doesn't make that much of a difference.

There's nothing original about it - darthvadern

16 Mario Kart 7

This game is great its just not as good as the DS one because there is like, no VS mode. other than that an underrated game. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Mario kart 7 stinks! Where's vs mode?! Why aren't anyone allowed to kill each other in balloon battle? You can bring back the lighting, red shell, spiny shell and bloper back but not the mega mushroom?

All the retro courses had been messed up with the new features! Luigi's mansion is not dark, you can't go in the train tunnel in kalimari desert, the shortcut in koopa beach is harder to go threw, the giant net in maple treeway is gone? , wheres all the people in coconut mall and why are little kids driving cars back and forth in the parking lot just to annoy me?

WHY THE FREAK IS KOOPA CAPE UNDERWATER, which replaces those cool koopa shell lasers with dumb looking cheep cheeps!

THE new characters suck metal Mario is Mario form, lakitu was nice but now mean when you lose and steals 3 coins when you fall of a cliff. Wiggler is gay and has a dumb voice. But honey queen is...! IS...! IS! I hate you honey queen for obvious reasons!

How can you praise this game for having Princess Peach in it?!

The best mario kart honestly in my opinion - darthvadern

17 Paper Mario: Sticker Star

The 5 reasons why this game sucks

5. No Xp gain: all you get is coins for beating enemies that are used to buy more stickers to fight more enemies, the level up system was completely removed from the game so you can just skip every enemy in the game and go right for the bosses.

4. Lack of direction: When you play this you will probably get lost in the game about once or twice and chapter 3 will suck middle fingers because you WILL get lots 1000 times and In chapter 2 you might have to go online to get the tablet pieces, WE NEED TO KNOW WHERE WE HAVE TO GO! TELL US!

3. No REAL partners: Partners in paper Mario are spectacular since some have interesting stories and some are great in battle, but who is your partner in sticker star? This cold heartless crown douche called Keristy or something like that, duuhhh she helps in battle because your confused and she has funny dialogue... WRONG! I felt bad for Vivian for being picked on by her sisters, I felt bad for bobbery ...more - Pastakirby7

How about Paper Sonic gets tried out?

Also, Paper Peach should be replaced by Paper Daisy & Paper Rosalina.

Either way, I'd give this game 4861 stars out of 10000.

Princess Peach shall never be the lost Princess as long as she lives. So far, her most recent kidnapping was in the old game of Mario & Luigi: Dream Team whereas Princess Peach was so rude, infantile & bossy. & very cowardly for her tall height.

They need to bring back the concepts that were introduced in Paper Mario and improved upon in The Thousand Year Door (I haven't played the original paper Mario sadly, but I've seen playthroughs on YouTube). its overdue. Super paper Mario was grat too but before we see a sequel to that lets go back to the good old stuff!
This game was incredibly frusturating and BORING! And I thought Mario RPG's were supposed to have good, creative stories and a simplistic yet awesome battle system! - HeavyDonkeyKong

The thousand year door was not a bad game. Peach's voice does not effect the gameplay, the dialogue is not confusing, and the title is not stupid. The thousand year door is one of the main concepts of the game! How is that confusing? - HeavyDonkeyKong

Haven't played it but looks lackluster - darthvadern

18 Mario Party: Island Tour

Come on. How is this not on here? Bowser's Tower (the story mode) is just a bunch of minigames, which you can just play in Free Play mode, anyway. Speaking of the story, it's really cringeworthy (even more so than the other games) It goes like this: OH NO Bowser TURNED THE SKY PURPLE! WE NEED TO KILL Bowser TO TURN THE SKY BLUE AGAIN! Also, the minigames are SO BORING and are definitely the worst in the series. Oh, and I haven't even got to the worst part... THE EXTRAS. You can ONLY unlock NOISES and the BORING-AS-HELL tunes from the game. No, I'm serious. If you are interested in a little Mario Party, just get any other game in the series. I'M BEGGING YOU!

Mario Party: Island Tour? More like Bowser Party: Koopa Tour!

Why does Princess Peach appear in every Mario Party game? She doesn't even bother to compete for stars since Mario Party 3.

*facepalm*, my two favourite mario parties are at the top - darthvadern

19 Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash

At first, the title catches your attention the the best. Once you played for a while, it gets boring and boring then pointless. The lack of game-modes makes it unattractive. The graphics only make it pretty good, but you'll find it very terrible to play. After a couple of tries, you'll regret your choice deeply. Mega Ball Rally only depends on AI for your teammates. What I'm trying to say is the higher the difficulity for Mega Ball Rally, the more boring it is. The more it ends quicker. Ace = Ends quickly. Pro = Ends in a while. Expert = Ends very slowly (almost when it reaches 100). Knockout Challenge however makes me wanna keep coming back more to play it only because I have a Gold Mario Amiibo. I'd rather have you play Mario Tennis Open than this. If you're still yearning back to this game because it's the only game you have, you have my deepest, saddest emotions for you because this was mediocre. Also, not to mention the chance shots were decreased (what a shame Nintendo, what a ...more

How much innovation is there? Oh wait, none. This is one major reason why Classic Nintendo is way better than Modern Mario Sports. What a weak game.

There is literally nothing to do in this game. You might enjoy it for the first few minutes you play it, but then you'll immediately regret buying it due to its lack of game modes. I don't mind the selection of characters (even if some of the voice acting is annoying), but there is literally nothing to do. This game should be free.

Haven't played it yet, but from waht I've seen it looks like one of the worst - darthvadern

20 Super Mario Bros. 2

I've had enough of the haters for this game, yes we all know wart is dumb. But it shows potential!

It isn't that bad it just doesn't feel like a Mario game but its still fun but I recommend super Mario bros 3 or the first one

I remember when I got this game. It was fun, but it was very odd and didn't feel like a Mario game. After SMB 3 came out, it felt like SMB 2 was the awkward kid who sits at the back of the classroom because he didn't fit in. It wasn't until years later when I learned it was ported from Doki Doki Panic that I realized why it was so weird and different from the others. Still a fun game, but still not a true Mario title in my opinion.

Different =/= Bad though. Got it? Good - darthvadern

21 Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels

This is why they're called the lost levels when one of the earlier games were released, the Japanese people thought that some of the levels were too hard for Americans. For the English release, the hard levels were taken out. These levels are known as the lost levels. Later, they were released in America seperate from the actual games. You really can't complain; These levels were made to be impossible.

What?!? This game may be hard but keep pressing on! I've finished the game an it is awesome! - HeavyDonkeyKong

22 New Super Mario Bros. Wii

For the love of God, stop whining about how you have to rescue Peach! If you hate a Mario game for that, you hate almost all of them. - Garythesnail

Why is it on the list!?!? - terriblebeast13

Because of Princess Peach, the lack of Princess Daisy/Rosalina, the graphics, Princess Peach's voice, the story, Princess Peach's appearance & if awful at this game.

There is nothing new in this game, the plot is horrible, the levels were annoying, no hard, but annoying, the graphics are nothing exceptional, and the final boss/ending is horrible. (Spoiler Alert) you go through another one of those annoying levels and Bowser falls in lava. Big surprise. Mario and Peach get together and they leave Luigi behind. I don't know if there is anything that I can praise about this game.

This one is great in my opinion - darthvadern

23 Mario's Fundamentals

Just 1 Year before the great Super Mario 64 was realased, Nintendo made a game for you to do whatever you want with the plumber... like play chess or go fish.
One intrusting note through this was the first time players heard the current voice of Mario.

Mario's Fundamentals is so underrated!

I'd give this game 13 stars out of 20.

The game seemed a bit interesting... But it's so underrated some how

25 Mario vs Donkey Kong

Awesome, underrated game with unique puzzles and visuals, with exceptional gameplay. The only thing lacking here is the story, but it's not really important in a game like this. - Cobalt

What moron put this on here? - Devilking190

Why is this game here? I played it a couple of years ago on an emulator and it is amazing. It got clever puzzles the controls are actually fluid and the graphics are so colorful. The storyline is recycled thoug, no originality here. Saving Daisy from the mighty ape. It is like saving Peach(Toadstool) from the mighty King of the Koopas. But the gameplay is MIND BLOWING. Like literally. - OldSchoolGamer1983

26 Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

This game has horrible level and overworld design and is incredibly frustrating.

I'd still play it.

27 Luigi's Mansion

Why is this on the list? I love this game except that when you get game over you don't start with full health, instead you start with however much health you had when you last saved.

The Only Problem I Have With This Game Is That It Was Way Too Short Same Thing With Wario World. The Sequel Was Definitely Better Than This.

The only problem to this game is that it was way too short.

Why are you making a Hitler joke? Even if you hate the game, still. It's not funny. - TeamRocket747

29 Wrecking Crew

This game is great! It's better than Wreck it Ralph!

Also, Wrecking Crew is too underrated! This game is cool! Memorable graphics, great music, a purple Luigi, masculinity, the bonus, the level amount's proportion, & even this game isn't confusing! It also takes place at night! :D So this game could be low on this list.

Did nobody notice, that was Disney taking this game and was made like Wreck it Ralph the movie?

That game is not really that good, it is actually bad one.

Wrecking Crew isn't as bad as everyone says, it's actually quite enjoyable. - recaller

We all Know the Mario Bros's jobs are plumbers, but in this they done construction? An early game in the NES Library Wrecking Crew was about as boring as Luigi was purple.

I wouldn't really consider this a Mario game, more of a game with Mario plastered into it. - GengarGuy

30 Mario and Luigi: Dream Team

This game is absolute trash it's passed with nothing but forced tutorials and when they don't don't show up the gameplay consists of long and tedious gimmicky battles. The characters are the same old boring cast and the new villain is missed potential because he is tossed aside.

Peach may have been kinda cold, but this game still had a ton of creative characters, creative worlds and humor! In my opinion this was the last good Mario RPG so far.

Whoever put this on the list is crazy! This game is awesome... 40 billion out of 10! Only bad thing is the Giant Bowser battle.

I don't, and never will understand the hate this Dream Team. I found it better than Superstar Saga and it's hands down one of the most original mario games - darthvadern

36 Paper Mario Color Smash

So now we have Paper Mario: Sucky Star AND Paper Mario: Color Trash. I am REALLY infuriated at the way they talked about this game at E3. They were DISHONEST about the game and now I'm just not gonna buy it.

"There's going to be new innovative characters! "

You mean CHARACTER. The only character that will be new will just be that stupid paint bucket, Huey! Huey is just a clone of Kersti!

"Interesting Puzzles"

Your take on a puzzle is a fire extinguisher putting out a fire!

"A plot twist we won't reveal"

ANYONE who knows ANYTHING about Mario is that it's GOING TO BE BOWSER! (THE KOOPALINGS ARE IN THE GAME! ) That's not a PLOT TWIST, that's like having a murderer covered in blood walk up to a crime scene and say "I definitely didn't commit this murder! " They even considered King Boo being the villain of Dark Moon was a plot twist.

This game is gonna suck. Nintendo! STEP UP YOUR GAME! "You could just play Mario and Luigi" NO! The Thousand ...more - DCfnaf

39 Mario Kart 64

Yep, just another good Mario game that fits perfectly with all of the other great Mario games

Why hate on this game? Peach wasn't whiny in this game, so we should be grateful for that! Also, Daisy could've replaced Peach because Peach is too caught up on making appearances in gaming.

This game is great, but I'd only criticize Princess Daisy's hiatus causing Peach to appear in more games than any other gaming female in gaming history, which sucks.

This actualy fub but for me its 5/10.

My sec. Favorite. Mario game,but its pretty bad.

I hate Wario but warioware is worse than this. Anyone rember when Ashley said “I have granted kids to hell”?

41 Super Mario 3D Land

Most of the people who hate this game are rabid Peach haters. But the reason why I don't really like this game much are the Special Worlds. Most of the levels in them are just harder rehashes of older levels in the game. And if the game is called Super Mario 3D LAND, then why don't you at least put some reference to Super Mario Land? Anyway, this was just a disappointment.

This disappoints at it's finest

Listen up, please. This is probably the only time I will ever agree with a Daisy fan(the rowdy ones.) Daisy should have been in this game. It's called Super Mario 3D Land. And there's a game called Super Mario Land and it was Daisy's first game. It would make sense to put Daisy as the damsel, but still, this game is great! - Drawbox

What? It may not be that creative, but I enjoyed it a lot - darthvadern

How dare you put this on the list. It's one of the best games ever

Do you also like SSMB due to Peach getting kidnapped & being in this game instead of Princess Daisy?! Because most of us don't.

At first glance, I thought this was a remake of the original games.

I liked this game - darthvadern

The words are spread out, the voice is bad, and the gameplay is garbage

45 Paper Mario

You gotta be kidding me. How the heck is this game on this list? This game was the epitome of fun on the Nintendo 64 and virtual console.

I don't want to raise a finger of objection, but let's look at this game with a bit of critique. First of, the gameplay is always important. And given this was Mario's second coming into the RPG genre, the story needed to be kept simple for new gamers. Unfortunately, that does not excuse poor writing. And its boss fights aren't that creative either. Very minor nitpicks, but it's worth noticing.

Why the heck is this game on the list?!?! This game is amazing! Take this off! - Aaa2

What, this game rules! What's next, TTYD? - SonicFan4Life

46 Mario & Luigi Bowser's Inside Story

Two words describe the world's hardest boss:
He just doesn't die! He made me slam pillows on my head and quit the game!

Super Mario RPG is my favorite Mario game. It will always be (much) more underrated than Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (which I like for reasons) and the successors of Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time (which I slightly like) will ever be.

What idiot Partners In Time Fan put my Number One favorite video game on this list? - DCfnaf

This game is a Masterpiece! So much fun and so much creativity! I played the hell out of it,
It's right up there with paper Mario the thousand year door if you ask me.

47 Mario Kart: Double Dash

Anyone who hates this game deserves a chance to die! Take it off this list!

SORRY! I didn't know this games rating

Mario kart double dash is awesome! Mario kart 64 suck and he is overrated.

The controls are terrible, but other than that this one's awesome - darthvadern

49 Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

What a ridiculous entitlement! Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS? This game should be renamed Super Smash Bros. Attack!

Why did all 7 gaming companies agree to cut Princess Daisy of Sarasa Land from thes game?! They didn't use to do these things for a long time! BOTH Princess Daisy & Rosalina could've replaced Princess Peach. Daisy is an important character who is so beautiful.

This game I have mixed feelings toward. And Daisy wasn't cut out, stupid. She only appears as a trophy.

Daisy has no use, she is just another character because Nintendo had no other ideas of who to put in this game. Go Rosalina

Oh! Come on... this Super Smash Bros for 3DS is good as WiiU... Hitler will be happy to see Link, McCloud dog, Pikachu, Villager, Sexy busty Samus, also Hitler will be meet Annoying Sonic, Pacman and Megaman... right... - AldoFitrian

50 Mario Party 10

There is no way that this is better than super Mario galaxy 1

Oh this game! Look, I'm very generous. I enjoyed Mario party ds, Mario party is just kind of eh for me. I thought adding he car was a stupid idea, but this game is the worst! I remember playing this and hating this. The bowser mode isn't fair and the mini games are just crap


This is the only Mario Party game I have, other than the crappy Mario Party 2.

Personally, yes, I do agree that Bowser Party isn't fair. Although, the minigames, in my opinion, are fine. There is Free Play, where you can play all the games without having to play the minigames in a party game or buy them with in-game money, unlike most Mario Party games I have and played.

Some of my favorite Minigames are the ones where you aren't timed and just have to avoid objects. The 1 vs 3 minigames could be my favorite, and the boss and miniboss minigames are awesome, just adding a bit more to the colorful world of this.

Again, adding to the boss and minibosses, you have a new boss for each world, each having their own special abilities, along with little 'games' in the maps, such as where you must shoot the ship in the air map which I forget the name to.

Although you stay together in a car, at least it makes you work together and not try to crush each other's ...more
