The problem is perspective. People are going to think differently based on where they enter the series.

Take M&L: Dream Team. A lot of people feel like that game was great but had too many tutorials, but for someone like me, who has never played a M&L RPG, I'm grateful for it because the controls were a bit out there (ie: needing to press A & B at the same time for jumping took getting use to).

I think 3D land was a fun game and hopefully the start to mario's revolution. All they need to do is keep expanding a little with more variety, originality and a little explorability. They have so many good ideas they can pull something from each one of the different Mario franchises and somehow blend them together. Mario 64 was great because it had puzzling, racing, an entire variety. Maybe take some of the ideas they have use for the Mario party minigames and expand on them as a one player experience.

But I think the first real thing they need to accomplish is some ONLINE co-op. I know Nintendo likes to believe that most gamers just live and play together locally but that's just not much of a reality for a lot of adult gamers. =(

Currently playing: M&L: Dream Team. Ace Attorney Dual Destinies

Waiting for: Kirby Triple Deluxe, Super Smash Bros, Puzzle & Dragons Z, Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney

Online for plat former Mario games on the 3ds does sound good on paper. But the only thing which concerns me is that the many disconnections it would have not just for the singular player but for everyone in the game.

But I do think that it is a revolutionary ideal for the plat former on handheld but would it properly work in reality now? We might need to wait for some time.
Edit1: I know the online features have worked for Mario Kart 7.

Edit2: But i fully agree with the rest of your personal statement.

Very true. Platforms are pretty difficult to play with others online with connection and lag issues. Even on the consoles it's a problem. I use to play little big planet online and people would drop in and out of the level from connection issues and then just everyone keeping up with one another was sometimes a huge hassle. I'm not really sure how it would work

The only way that it could work in now days is for Nintendo to 100% focus on the online system; but it does have certain limitations e.g graphical difficulties, glitches, bugs etc you name it.

I wouldn't mind a Mario game with online co-op....

As long as there were less disconnections, glitches and lag that Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon and its ScareScraper. I wouldn't want a Mario co-op experience quite that unplayable due to issues.

Just played Super Mario Bros X and it was so boring and I just deleted it. The toads are harsh and well it was really not what I expected.

I think they should make MKDD 2 or whatever they should be calling it. But a heard rumors that MK8 is going to have some sort of double team system implemented but I am not sure of it though.

I heard that rumor also, they never actually show two people in a car, but other than that, I see no reason to doubt it.

Megatron: Any last words Optimus?

Optimus: None you wanna hear megatron!

I personally hope they will add a feature like this.

Ok I just want to rate the Mario And Luigi series in the following with the reason why its there. so here goes........

4. Mario & Luigi : Partners In time: I played this game twice and I can say its still a fun game but unfortunately it suffers from some issues. The game is too linear. There aren't much of side-quests to go to, you have to buy special items inorder to use them and if the adult bros are defeated, the babies aren't powerful enough to face bosses well to me atleast so reviving the adults can be frustrating. And the game is short. So overall, its a fine attempt but still its short.

3. Mario and Luigi : Bowser's Inside Story : I know a lot will disagree with this one here but let me explain why this comes third and its all because of three simple reasons. its too short, the humor doesn't always work and the frustrating button mashing just gets in the way occasionally. But man oh man, this game almost came close to being one of my favorite games of all time and I should respect this game for its smooth pixel art animation. And most importantly of all, I CAN PLAY AS BOWSER HIMSELF!!!!!!! ITS MIND BLOWING TO PLAY AS THE KING KOOPA HIMSELF! There are also times where the story at certain sections feel like its in the script with little drama. for example inorder to get the third star cure, you need to learn a new move which is ok but still couldn't it be something like it isn't in the script or something? But I can safely say that this is the best DS game I've played and is certainly a must have for a Mario fan like myself. SHOWTIME!!!!!!!!!

2. Mario and Luigi : Dream Team : How does inside story lose to this you ask? Three reasons. Great length for an RPG, no button mashing and most of all, Great sense of humor. This game's soundtrack is amazing and I'm glad they still used the pixel art style. There are lots of things to do in this game even after you beat it. But there are some few issues with this game. The story feels like half-baked. For example, Antasema doesn't show up every once in a while and you barely get to see him much until in the end. Then there are these attack pieces which are very annoying to get inorder to learn a new move. Its optional but inorder to learn a new move, you need to get the attack pieces and its not the process of getting them, but rather finding them and that alone stinks. Last but not least is the tutorials, there are done too much in this game atleast once in the first half of it. I can easily say however that this is my favorite 3DS game and I will play this again shortly.......

1.Mario and Luigi Superstar saga: Yes the original, the one that started the series. First of the story feels like an adventure. It doesn't feel sluggish like how Dream team, Inside story(Well not entirely since the bowser parts are amazing and all but still feels more like in the script for the most part) and the gameplay wise, there's a lot to do here. The special moves are learnt once you learn a new move outside battle and if you mastered the move, you can do the advance which gives even more damage something that the sequels didn't do. There is a variety of things you can do here. Like putting luigi into a keg so mario can jump up and hit switches, using thunder and fire moves to solve your way in, mini games that are fun and LOTS OF SIDE-QUESTS you can do here. Its this reason that I make it 1 and Its my favorite game of all time.

Now with that said, All the games in the series are great so you should definitely be fine with whatever is best for you to start on and like I said, its not the problem with the franchise at all. Its gamers who have this feeling that there is something missing in the franchise.
