Title: 1 vs. 3 minigames! Tell what you like/hate about them
Post by: Shyguy498 on January 17, 2011, 04:52:14 PM
What do you like or hat about 1 vs. 3 minigames? These are probably one of my favorite types of minigames. I like 1 vs. 3 minigames because each team has a disadvantage. What are some of your favorite 1 vs. 3 mingames?

I like the fact that they can be unique, because most other mini-game types, such as 2 vs 2 or duels could work as 4 players with slight modifications, but you can't with most 1 vs 3.

I don't like how sometimes they provide an unfair advantage, like for example the one player must drop bob-ombs while the three players avoids them, if the three players are skilled enough, then the one player will lose no matter what.

They're cool. They're as good as 2 vs 2 and 4 player ones...

This pretty much. Though I prefer 2 vs. 2 over 1 vs. 3.

They are mini-games! that is what I like and hate about them.
Okay I like how on most of them when it is a race the 1 player gets more of an advantage, making it fair. I hate where on some games you are at their mercy, [for example SHOCK DROP and ROLL (Mario Party 2)]

1v3s provide a good contrast to 2v2s and 4P mini-games.

Some are rather biased, such as Track Star, others like that 1v3 in MP6 with the Pachinko/Pinball like table are more balanced. I prefer balanced types. =P

I didn't really like the coin stealing of MP1 in 1v3s either (not applicable for the minigame with the hammer and nine coin blocks).

The fact that if only 1 player on the 3 survives, the 3 win. Others just are way too biased for the 1 player (Gun the Runner) and others for the 3 player. (Tidal Toss.)

Last time I played Gun the Runner, my Practice was epic win, my real play was epic loss. :I

Would you classify Fast Food Frenzy as team advantage?

Tough to say, probably not. But for whatever reason, Gun the Runner, I ALWAYS lose. :U

Pretty much this too.

Other than some mini-games being a little unfair to the player alone; 1 vs. 3 Mini-Games are pretty cool.

Yes, some weren't fair.
On MP1, it damn sure wasn't fair

They're good. Sometimes I like being by myself and in other minigames I like being in a 3.

Some are okay and some are just rigged for the 1 player to win or vice-versa. I'm not a fan of them as much as the other types.

1 vs 3 mini-games aren't bad. I just hate mini-games where it's practically impossible for the 1 player to win(like Tidal Toss) or the 3 players to win(like Ray of Fright) as well as some coin mini-games like Cash Flow or River Raiders(I think that's what it's called)

I just hate when I'm with stupid cpu that can't do nothing. To be honest, it depends on the minigame I'm playing. There are some I like when I'm alone (coin minigames mostly) and there some I like when I'm on a team.

You guys ever sabotage your team because you wouldn't want to lose the lead (or make sure opponent next to star doesn't get over 20 coins)?

I never have purposely sabotaged my team, but the thought came to me just now (though I don't think I was ever in a situation where I had to either).

Yeah I sabotage my teams on those kinds of occasions. I'm usually aware of the scenarios so when the minigame teams come I know what to do. It's only tough if it's a coin free-for-all game or I just need coins badly.

I sometimes do it if one of the CPU's is going to get more than 20 coins if they win and they're near the star. and by the way, how could you lose the lead of your team wins? ???

I do sabotage a team if they need x < 11 coins to get the star and I don't like when a Player is by themself, they get the mini-game where they're the target. Especially on MP8, everytime I by myself, it's always That Bomb thing or Gun the Runner

Well, cause the next turn the CPU would get the star :P My parenthesis after was just to clarify what I was talking about.

Sure, they're alright. Some were bad like Ridiculous Relay, how the heck are you suppose to win when bullets and para goombas are everywhere? :P
