Mario Party 2. They had mini-games that were similar to Mario Party and I liked its boards there.

MP3. It's almost a dead heat between 2 and 3 for me (my 2 favorite MP games) but 3 gets the edge for having more varieties of things to choose from.

Like Cook, it's a close one between MP2 and 3, but I personally lean towards MP3 for its extensiveness and expansion on the MP series and format. Oh, and the storyline as well.

Mario Party 3 because it's better! :3

It's really fun and I love the paper background style! :3

MP3. Believe it or not, I've never played 1. And, of course, 2 didn't have a better storyline than 3.

MP3 was a great game, but MP2 wins out of any of the MP's!

I really liked Mario Party 2 but im going to go with Mario Party 3 because it was a lot more wacky and colorful and i thought the boards were better than before along with the minigames. But i do remember having a lot of fun with both. :)

Mario Party 3. Did you know...did you know.....did you know that it was my FIRST ever Mario Party? I remember the day I got it: August 18, 1991... ahh, the memories.

Then it goes Mario Party, then Mario Party 2.... I didn't really like the multiple themes.

Mario Party 3. I just loved the music, which was the main quality of the game that I liked. I also liked the cartoony feel of the game, it worked well with the boards and mini-games.

Mario Party 3 was my most played N64 Mario Party game.  Therefore, Mario Party 3 is my favorite.

I'm glad they added in Daisy..  so I don't have to play as Peach.  (Nothing against you guys, but I don't like Peach.)

Amen, screw Peach. :P Daisy officially became my favorite of the two when
1- I realized I was saving Peach for like the 30th time in Galaxy
2- Daisy KO'd Bowser in MP3, awesome stuff there

I've only played the first one of the three, my I know 3 is definitely NOT my favorite.. I don't really like the two characters they added in... It's probably the first one, since it's the first party game I played and had so much fun playing it with my family. It never got boring for me and my brothers. The second one does have the sweet costumes but It's just not as classic as MP1 was for me.

Mario Party 3 was my favorite. Most of the mini-games were fun and awesome, the party mode had great items and boards and the story mode was good. I loved the funny scenes like when Bowser gets out of the way when Tumble asks him and when Daisy slapped Bowser really really far away.

gotta go mario party 2. I personally thought the boards were pretty ban in MP3, however the mini games were great. In MP2 i thought it was great all around

Post by: JFRL9 on December 30, 2010, 06:13:33 PM
It's close between 2 and 3 but I'm going with 3. I think 1 is the worse without a doubt and 3 was just more entertaining overall

It's a tie between the first and third Mario Parties for me, personally. Mario Party 1 was my first ever Mario Party game when i was smaller, and it's still great fun, but Mario Party 3's minigames are far more fun, and i like the addition of Tumble.

Mario Party 2 since it's the only one I own, but I'd like to see Mario Party 3. If it ever goes on virtual console I'll buy it since it's too expensive to buy it used for N64.

I voted for that MP2 for board nostalgia.

Ohhh they're all fantastic. The first one I had heaps of fun with, even on that painful Rainbow Castle when you'd be on track for the winning star and the person before you changed it to Bowser... ahhh ^_^
Mario Party 2 was also fantastic, but I wish it were more original with its minigames instead of borrowing a lot from the first one. It was a feature lots of people liked, but as far as I was concerned, been there, done that.
Mario Party 3 is my favourite :) Got to finally pick Waluigi, which would do until Toad, which would do until Hammer Bro x] But nothing compares to Mario Party 3's odd yet awesome graphics and minigames.

I do like the 2nd one because of all the cool themes and such, but I voted for the 3rd. I just posted in MP3's (not to get it confused with the music player) 10th anniversary topic little tidbits about how much I love it and miss it!

Post by: DB1234 on June 10, 2011, 08:52:07 PM
I really liked them all, but I have to vote for the 3rd. I loved all of the items, plus the many fun minigames.
Title: Re: Your favorite out of the original 3 Mario Parties?
Post by: Demido on June 14, 2011, 03:32:28 PM
Seems to be everyone likes the second or third games.

Personally, I like the first one. Some people don't like it because of some of the "unfairness" that comes with the game and the lack of minigames. But I thought they were way more appealing and original. The only downside was it's the only game in the series without items, the simplicity (it is the 1st MP game after all), the CPUs sometimes cheat, Tug-o-War, and Paddle Battle. I remember as a kid always bugging my parents about buying it because I lost the game so much. I probably bought it at least 4 times. It was probably the 2nd-most bought game ever (behind Paper Mario).

O'course, Mario Party 2 was really nice. It could be like me getting the best of both worlds. However the game just didn't appeal to me and I don't really know why. I liked the originality and some minigames were really fun like the first one. The bad thing about it is how some of the games borrowed from the first one were changed. Crane Game is notorious for me, I liked how in the first one if someone had like 160 coins and you hated them so much and needed some coins you could just steal a 1/3rd of their coins. Or if you just wanted some coins because no one else had any or thought it was easier, you could just pick up a treasure chest for 10 coins.

Mario Party 3 is on the borderline for me liking it more. All the minigames were fantastic and original. Story Mode was "meh" though. I loved the items and the additional spaces, especially Game Guy. His minigames were so challenging and frustrating. The only thing that I probably don't like is some of the boards. They're all good just some had more appeal over the other.
Title: Re: Your favorite out of the original 3 Mario Parties?
Post by: Veet on June 15, 2011, 04:24:32 AM
Hmm, they are all great! Though, Mario Party 3 is the best, because of its story mode, items, and minigames. MP2 is also good, but it didn't have the story mode, though I really liked the costumes(Except for Peach's one.. Dress, Dress, Dress.) and boards. Mario Party 1 is also good, too, though stick rotating made blisters. Anyway, MP3 is first, and the two others are both 2nd.

yea mario party 3 was lame bez of the item magic lamp. first everyone buys it second it's cheap third i think u should work for ur star. but my favorites is the first one bez after u buy the magma mountain and play on it u get another map which caught me off guard as well for my brothers and cousins and it's classic.

I think Mario Party 2 is the best, because of all the elements from Mario Party 1 plus the new elements like items and costumes. :P
Title: Re: Your favorite out of the original 3 Mario Parties?
Post by: Wiiboy4ever on August 25, 2011, 11:21:53 PM
I guess I'm the only one here who didn't really like the N64 games.  :-\

IMO they're all so lame and mediocre it's hard to choose.

Mario Party 1 was just bland and badly made, and the gameplay was repetitive.

Mario Party 2 was....better, but it got annoying and I think I favored the first one more.

Mario Party 3 was alright. The computers were stupid in Party Mode and when they're not stupid, they always cheat. And they did nothing but buy skeleton keys or win them in item minigames and then throw them away. :P And they always team up on the human player. :( Also the majority of the minigames were stupid because they were either luck based, mediocre, badly explained through the instructions, quick and pointless, or some other fifth thing. And there was nothing to do. Either party mode, story mode (which is nothing but party mode with a story) or play minigames.

I guess I'll go with Mario Party 3.

Mario Party 2. I would choose Mario Party 3 if it weren't for the fact that Mario Party 3 introduced the horrible Story Mode mechanics that would also appear in Mario Party 4 and Mario Party DS.

Favorite N64 Mario Party? Obviously Mario Party 3. It had the best items available in it like the Reverse-Mushroom and the Bowser-Phone, it also had the action time parts on all the boards, and I liked the different variety of minigames in the duel and item sections. I still even play dual mode today on it!

Also, I've been playing more of MP1 and MP2 lately, and I realized... there's more flaws on the first 2 than I thought. MP1, you can not really decide your destiny, it all comes down to Mini-Games and Luck, I don't like the feel of no control. MP2 Mini-Games and AI really piss me off on Hard, cuz it's really hard to win, and the AI is real vicious. Using Boo to steal from CPUs on Hard get you like 6 coins...

I don't hate MP1/MP2, I've just been playing them more and more lately, and it's just some annoying things I've noticed.

Mario Party 2, favorite MP of all time, addictive mini-games, great music, creating a storyline for each stage is actually pretty creative (same with MP but I like MP2's better).

Mario Party 3.  I love the Items and the Item system (can carry 3, the two separate shops, and the Item Bag), as well as Duel Mode and that island on the top left of Waluigi Island.

My favourite out of the first three Mario Parties is Mario Party 2. I think that it has the best boards and minigames out of the original three. I liked the Bowser Bomb as well. Too bad it never came back.

I can't believe I haven't posted it here yet. :P

Anyway, my favorite out of the three would be MP3. The game was the best structured overall. The boards were fantastic, along with the minigames, duel mode, and story mode. I also loved the items that were in this game, very well thought out.

I have to go with the only N64 Mario Party game that I enjoyed and that is Mario Party 3.
What really stood out to me may not be a big deal for others, but it was the Items. There were plenty of unique items that made playing the board maps really exciting. This was the only N64 Mario Party in which I enjoyed the minigames. They were a huge step up form Mario Party 2 IMO. Finally this is the only MP game that has a tolerable Story Mode.

So...yeah. =P

Mario Party 3. Did you know...did you know.....did you know that it was my FIRST ever Mario Party? I remember the day I got it: August 18, 1991... ahh, the memories.

Then it goes Mario Party, then Mario Party 2.... I didn't really like the multiple themes.
2001?

Mario Party 2 is the best!(out of these 3)

Mario Party 2. It was the first Mario Party I've played, I loved the mini-games and the different costumes were cool. I also like the fact you can force the characters run for ages in the character selection tunnel. :P

Mario Party 2!

They brought items in with this game, and made it much more interesting.

In Mario Party 1 you collected coins, but with no real point other than to pay for board effects. So, you'd always end up with a million coins and hardly anything to use them on.

They also brought in the costumes and I always loved that feature of the boards! Especially Horror Land. :)

EDIT:
They also brought in tons of my favorite minigames from the first game, too! Always loved that, and yet they never really did it again.
Face Lift, Crazy Cutters, etc.

Very hard choice. Never played 3. 1 or 2 then. 1 was a revolution in gaming with the first party game. 2 was interesting with dueling. Have to go with 1. Just too good.

Now that I think about it, 1 had my favourite mini-game of all time "running of the bulb". I could play that mini-game for hours and still never get bored. It's fun when you have to work together to win, but you're still playing solo, trying to get other people to walk into the big Boo while saving yourself. I love all survival mini-games.

I still prefer Mario Party 2 though. :P

I have a Nintendo 64 and 3 now and my new thoughts:

2. Move 1 & 2 down one.
New N64 MP ranking:
1. 3!
2. 2!
3. 1!
Yeah they got better with time. :)

Maybe MP3. It was the last Mario Party for the N64 that I got. It included a bunch of things that the first two didn't contain much of. MP1 and MP2 were still great, though. The first one has been in my family since I was born, the second one I've owned for a few years, and the third one I've had for a year.
But, overall, they're all good.  :)  :mario: :peach: :wario: :yoshi: :star:

Mario Party 3 all the way. Always my favorite and always will be. It introduced Story Mode and a plethora of great items and most are exclusive to it such as the reverse mushroom. It was also Princess Daisy's first Mario Party and one of the few games to have her Peach-like appearance. My favorite Daisy quote is in this game. The best host of the series with his "Yay!" was introduced here. The mini-games are great and original both single player and multiplayer. Best soundtrack and voices out of the three games aside from "D"OH I MISSED".

I can play this Mario Party for hours and isn't frustrating as the other two with either chance time appearing too much or too much hidden blocks.

I just wanted to mention that I am FINALLY going to cap my Mario Party collection!  I just bought Mario Party 1 (plus box and manual.)  I will finally have all Mario Parties released except for Advance because I do not have a Game Boy Advance (besides, people say it's horrible.)  I will get the 3DS version when it comes out so I will still have them all!

EDIT: Got it yesterday but wasn't able to play it until today.  LOVE it.  Mario Party 2 still beats it but man was it good for it's time! 6/16/13

I have to go with MP3. It's the one I first played and spent the most amount of time on. Also the boards and minigames are really fun. I'd put MP1 in at second and MP2 in third. I just didn't get as much enjoyment from MP2 as I did MP1.

I did not really like Mario Party 1 because the items were too pricey. Mario Party 2 was an improvement because of cheaper items, but I still did not like that you could only have ONE item, that was a severe limitation.

Mario Party 3 was great. Holding 3 items, the reverse mushroom can help you go to Boo 3 times, and mess someone else up or help yourself out. I also liked the cellular shopper and getting any item I want any time, and the lucky lamp because I would use it when someone was really close to the star and that messed their game.

They still do count as items, regardless of the items being random at times. It's all random and luck that it'll happen to you, as long as you have the items turned on from the Mushroom Bank.
