Runners up for "Game I want More Of" include Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door & Sound Shapes.

Charm is certainly still there in Sticker Star, gameplay works just fine and it's not all removed from story elements. Certainly though, it shows worrying development when even what seemed to be the safest haven of story-driven Mario gets touched by Miyamoto's inexplicable crusade against the same.

Was Bowser's Inside Story the last narratively immersive Mario game? Dear lord I hope not.

@Fearnavigatr: Especially considering how Inside Story had the worst helper support character I had ever seen at that point in Chippy. Man, Chippy was a cunt. A terrible character, I hate her because she is deplorable in the way that she talks and the respect she does not pay to Bowser. PAY BOWSER YOUR PROPS HE IS THE ONE THING GOOD ABOUT THAT GAME.

@TheMasterDS:

Funny, I don't even remember Chippy thinking back on that game until I see her mentioned. Shows how uncharacteristic she was. But the game actually did stand out to me as being one of the strongest Mario RPGs in terms of storytelling, mostly thanks to how it managed to have Bowser in a protagonist role along with the Mario brothers without any sort of personality compromises, allegiance setups or disruptive changes of viewpoint.

So yeah, I really like Bowser's Inside Story, I only wouldn't want it to be the last story-heavy Mario game on the simple basis of there not being any more if that were the case.
