The Paper Mario Franchise May Have Permanently Abandoned the RPG Direction

Nintendo Enthuasiast:

For fans of the Paper Mario franchise, there may be some bad news concerning the direction of the franchise in the future. (Although Mario & Luigi RPG will probably still be around to satisfy your Mario RPG fix.) (3DS, GameCube, Nintendo DS, Paper Mario, Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, Super Paper Mario, Wii, Wii U)

a newly made square enix version of mario rpg should be rebooted or continued.. This is too adolescent to me.. I know its a decent game thats prolly fun & challenging but stickers? cute paper cut outs? make some 1st party franchises a bit darker nintendo.. I hope zelda on 3ds ditches that wind waker look

I wouldn't call it adolescent, but I do think Super Mario RPG is the best of the lot.

Why does Nintendo always have to **** up their franchises? Love Paper Mario

Sticker Star is not even really that bad. In fact it's still turn based combat with the same timing based reaction commands from the first two games.

However I do acknowledge it's been DRASTICALLY simplified, and I think they made this decision to keep it as a handheld game. Unlike the first two Paper Mario games, Sticker Star can be played in rather short bouts. Five to ten minutes if you're crafty.

But this is hardly a franchise **** up as you call it. If anything, I'd take a good long look at your profile picture when talking about that sort of topic.

Its still an RPG. Just not the traditional ones players want. Instead of static attack options and partners, you get stickers. It is the same number of attacks as prior versions, only presented in different ways. Apparently a lot of gamers can't recognize the obvious similarities in the mechanics.

Haven't taken Paper Mario serious in quite awhile. Wasn't it supposed to be a spiritual successor to Mario RPG?

Mario RPG is a favorite of mine and Paper Mario, just could not compare and still does not till this day.

Yeah, I thought Square and Nintendo patched things up. They need to get started on a new Super Mario RPG already.
