Ways nintendo could destroy Mario

#1 Posted by rockenhard (117 posts) -

I'm not saying Nintendo's ruining Mario, I'm just asking if you guys can think of ways Nintendo could possibly destroy. One thought that comes to my mind, is adding too many regular characters to the series, which is something that ruined the Sonic games, or maybe making too many gimick games, but anyway feel free to post your opinion.

Giving him full lines of dialogue.
#3 Posted by rockenhard (117 posts) -

I suppose so, then again that might actually make him seem less anoying, although he really isn't that annoying I suppose.

And give him shitty rock & roll music while he is a blue hedgehog.

And turn him into a warrior.

Perhaps giving him realistic proportions would do it and putting him in realistic environments and situations.

I feel like if Nintendo did that to ANY of their games, it would ruin them.
#25 Posted by rockenhard (117 posts) -

I know there are games that Nintendo has made that have huge voice acting, Mario isn't one of them.

#26 Posted by Willy105 (4690 posts) -

Do what Sega did.

What does it do to you the other times?
#29 Posted by rockenhard (117 posts) -

It makes me think Mario's lost his mind.

#30 Posted by IcySandman (474 posts) -

Make a game that takes the Mario universe WAY too seriously, with full dialogue, crappy references from movies/games.

#31 Posted by ThatFrood (3375 posts) -

Oh yes! Ha ha!

I don't really know but making too many random Mario games would ruin the franchise.
