Default What's everyone's problem with Mario?

I feel sorry for poor Mario. He's just doing his job, he doesn't ask or demand anything and he's so lovable. I don't get why Dorkly or Simpsons insult someone like that. Its like every Mario game is made, it has to be someone who goes picky on the character instead of the game.

  1. Not everyone needs to like Mario
  2. I'm pretty sure whatever you're referring to aren't meant to be taken seriously
  3. Flaming Mario is an easy way to bait people

some people are just angry because they like luigi better and can't accept the fact that luigi is much inferior to mario

Luigi popularized the Death Stare

I guess the anti-Luigi camp would argue that it makes Luigi too edgy

But here's the problem I have with people ranting at Mario. When Mario does a simple thing like saving Peach, no one likes that concept but when Banjo does the same thing like saving his sister or when Earthworm Jim does the same thing, everyone likes that more than Mario.

Seriously just leave the poor man alone already!

If Banjo-Kazooie had a bunch of games where all Banjo basically did was save his sister, I'm sure people will grow tiresome of that as much as Mario saving Peach 99% of the time.

I enjoy Mario games, but the whole Bowser kidnapping Peach thing is far beyond stale. I appreciate Super Mario 3D World for trying something slightly different... well, it's still a kidnapping by Bowser, but at least it isn't Peach for once.

Mario having to keep saving peach from bowser can make him seem a little boring since he keeps having to do that, but the times when he doesnt is a lot better like some of the rpgs and 3d world and smb2, especially like in super paper mario when she helps save the world.

At least luigi saving mario was something different or even super princess peach even if that wasnt a a great game. Plus peach could defend herself more.

i just find him a bit basic and over-promoted by nintendo (i guess thats expected with him being nintendos icon character)
and yeah like previous people said, his games mostly follow the same story line which gets repetitive and boring

To be completely fair, story was never the reason people played the main platformer Mario games - Much like how people probably don't play Street Fighter for its great story. They're generally the type of games where you just played and didn't think too much about motivations.
