Make the decision to axe one major Mario franchise. You can't say none and you can't say all, just one. Which would it be and why?

Baseball. The pitching/batting never felt fair.

To be honest the 2d mario games. I know they started it all but no they are pretty boring and unoriginal. They just feel like repetitive 2d sidescrollers.

I don't know... well, I guess Mario Party then. I haven't enjoyed a Mario Party game in years and there's been what, 11? of them. That's a lot and I don't think the series can really improve much, so I wouldn't care at all if Mario Party died.

I suppose the same thing could be said about Mario Kart, but for me there's always been something addictive about it, whereas Mario Party is just meh.

I actually liked the soccer game a bunch, so not that. Maybe get rid of the golfing? If I'm gonna play a golf game, its gonna be Tiger Woods.

Mario Golf.

We really don't need Mario golf. We already have Mii Sport Golf and it is good enough.

I haven't played all those series, but I'd personally say Mario Baseball because it sounds like the least fitting concept for a video-game and especially a Mario game. I think Golf is slightly more interesting than baseball and I think there's more to be done visually to make it a Mario game.

They did make about 5000 Mario Party games so I wouldn't mind seeing that gone either, although to be fair, I think the problem with them is they should just release them a lot less often. I had a lot of fun with the first one.

I prefer 3D Mario to 2D Mario but I still think a 2D Mario platformer is likely to be very fun. I can't imagine myself buying Mario Baseball on the other hand.

I have no problem with more Mario Party games. They're like the best drinking game ever.

Mario Golf. The least entertaining series out of all the Mario sport games IMO

Well, to be fair, the Olympic Games series is made by Sega, not Nintendo, so it's not that it's not big but it isn't really an actual Mario franchise. It's more like he guest-stars in somebody else's game.

And I'm surprised that Golf is losing by that much so far. I understand that golf isn't the most exciting of sports, but I think a baseball video-game sounds even less exciting, and there's just not much that they can do visually to make it Mario-like, whereas I think all the other games have a lot of potential to put their Mario spin on things.

Oh, I see. I never bothered looking into it, I just assumed Nintendo had a big enough role in it considering how his name is half the title lol.

I said baseball because I find baseball boring, and I also enjoy most of the other mario games.

I say end: 2d mario: It's become a little dull for my taste, I think the only 2d platformer in nintendo's arsenal should be DKC.
Party: Just plain stupid
Baseball: Felt unfair

I ADORE 3d mario games (with the exception of sm3dl)
Paper mario is excellent
Mario kart, while getting a bit repetitive, is still fun.
Tennis is pretty great actually
Strikers is easily my favorite mario sports/spinoff
Golf: Pretty dang fun actually

Mario is overexposed, and thus, not magical. They need to shelter him a bit more like they did in the post wii era.

I got too bored of 2D mario....The constant barrage of "New" Super Mario bros. Ruined it. They should of left that at the DS Remake.

Mario Baseball. I was never enthralled with it, it felt very rigid.

Baseball, I've never tried it, nor the video game version, it looks like an annoying game.

Not the 2D games altogether, but the New Super Mario Bros series needs to be given a rest so they can move onto something else.
4 games is really pushing it when there is so little variety between them.

Mario Baseball for me, not really a big fan. I love Mario Strikers, Mario Tennis, Mario Kart and all Mario Platforming/RPG. I'm a bit on and off with Mario Party, but I like it more than the baseball.

All of the Sports-based Mario games are just not my thing.

The first 7 Mario Parties packed a great challenge (it was good). 8 was too easy, but tolerable (it's OK). Wii Party was like the classic Mario Parties, but with more modes, Miis, and motion controls (it was great), but 9... Well, Ala-Gold gave the player blatant information that can be checked simply by looking at the map, it has you "confirm" if your ready to play the minigames, despite you being the one pressing start in the first place, there's too much luck, there are barely any minigames, "Hard" mode CPUs are stupid, Toad throws a temper tantrum when getting 4th, etc. Get rid of it before it sucks.

In my opinion, 2D Mario platformers are fine; however, the main problem is the fact that they are becoming a bit too overused for their own good lately (definitely naming the NSMB series here). Don't get me wrong, I love the 2D Mario games and I even started playing the Mario games through them; however, I think we all could take a break from the 2D games for a while. Perhaps expand more on the 3D Mario games in the future or a different/new genre. Just some form of change would perhaps get more fans to become fascinated with Mario once again as they did in the past as opposed to seeing the very same elements in the newer games.

As for my choice of what type of Mario genre I would get rid of, it would probably be the Mario Golf series. To be honest, I never really enjoyed this series as much as I did for the other Mario spin-off series titles. The Golf games just never seemed to have taken off in a path of success as the other titles have (they did well; however, not as well received as the other spin-offs).

2D Mario. New 2D Mario are straight up running on nostalgia, and barely anything else. There's nothing more Nintendo can really add to 2D Marios; they've perfected it already. It's time to move onto something else.
