Just Mario Party 6. It has the Day/Night system and all the mini-games were pretty cool.

Mario Party 4. Though there are only 50 minigames, those minigames are amazing!
I know I said Mario Party 4/7 in another thread, but I changed my mind.  :)

Mario Party 5, with all the options I had tons of fun.

My favorite was MP5. I loved the Duel mode and the boards were pretty good. I did like the fact that you had to use coins in order to use the orbs. Also, I loved that the orbs thrown on the board were permanant unless they were all removed.

I liked Mario Party 6 for the day/night gimmick.  I thought this game had a stronger interest than the other ones for me.  The addition of Toadette really made me jump for joy.
MP4 was pretty fun, except the characters and the boards seems...  shallow/dead.
MP5 was okay.  I didn't enjoy story mode nor the music too much.  Wasn't a fan on some of the mini-games, either.
MP7 was fun.  Story mode could be a little better, but it's good overall.

6 followed by 5.

6 was the most memorable of the ones I own (don't have 4) with the lively boards and minigames. Did not like the Star Bank I have to admit.

5 had a lot of modes and Frightmare was quite a fun boss battle.

I'd have to say 6. (How original, eh?)
While some of the games weren't all that great, i loved the day/night system and the amount of secrets and unlockables to be found. (I'm horrible when it comes to hoarding things)

My favourite is mp 7 I think, then 5 or 4 and 6 was my least.
Hated the star bank, no story mode. bluch
7 had fun mini-games, fun mini game modes and a nice story mode (:

4 was OK.  I thought the mini/mega system was clever, and Custom Mini-Game Lists should be standard in all Mario Parties.
5 I disliked.  It's orb system I didn't like (Can't choose which orbs you get directly; costs coins to use on self; mushroom spaces make little sense to me), but Card Party was very fun.
6 Is my Favorite.  The orb system is the best here, and E. Gadd's Garage is incredibly fun.
7 was great.  If they only didn't make Kamek so Gamebreaking (3 spaces stolen?  too much!).  I loved Windmillville's game mechanic to death.

Wrong topic dude. =P

Also, I enjoyed the MP5 story mode; It was unique and gave the game a twist having the Koopa Kids move at the same time. It was childish, but fun.

All of them are cool to me, but 6 stands out as my fav.

my favorite Mario Party is 6

Mario Party 6 is so awesome! I love the day and night feature, all the boards are great, and a lot of the minigames are fun and addicting.

My favorite in the gcn mp series would have to be mp6 it had awesome graphics and the layout of the game was perfect and the minigames were off the hook and the day/night system was pure genius and is still my fav in the gcn series.

My favourite Gamecube Mario Party and my favourite Mario Party overall, is Mario Party 6.

I have to choose wither Mario Party 6 or 7. The board maps in these 2 games are much better than the ones in MP 4 and 5. The traditional way of getting stars was extremely boring to me at this point so I was extremely excited when I learned that each board map would have a different way of collecting stars, instead of the usual way. All of the board maps in the final two Gamecube MP games were very well designed and actually fun to play, minus Towering Treetop and Grand Canal. I'll give the edge to MP 6 due to the Day and Night System. The minigames MP 6 and 7 were also some of the best of the GC Mario Parties, as well as 5, but not MP 4(this game bored the hell out of me).

As for MP 5, the only thing it has going for it are the minigames(which are excellent).

*waits for someone to bash my opinion on the  'traditional' Party Mode* =P

Mario Party 4 has such good minigames it has to be my favorite!
It also had great music!

For me, it would be Mario Party 6, because of the day and night system which was really nice, as well as boards and musics than I really enjoy.

7 and 5 for me i love duel mode and the boards with 5 and with 7 i liked 8 player mode and the characters :D

I'm gonna be ranting about my favorite Mario Party...
No there will not be a TL;DR version. Read it or weep. =P

So I was in Grade 1. My friend comes over one day and brings her new game over. It was Mario Party 6. I was all excited to try out this new game along with my sister and her sister. We did a Party game. We play Faire Square, 20 turns. (We unfortunately didn't finish the whole game) I had no idea what the concept of the board was, nor did I have any knowledge of the other mechanics as well. So I was pretty lost. XD
We play some mini-games at the end of every turn. (like in every other Mario Party LOL) From what I remember, we played: Ball Dozers, Crate and Peril, Daft Rafts, Granite Getaway and Control Shtick. I had a fun time playing, even if I did lose most of them. (It was my 1st time playing so uh I obviously didn't do that well XD)
So when my friend gets to that star space, she was buying multiple stars. I was like "WAIT WHAT, YOU CAN DO THAT?!?!" because no other Mario Party before it had a mechanic like that. So then when I get there, (I had 67 coins XP) I just bought as many stars as I could. Which was 3. :p
Then my friend starts using orbs and sets them on the board. I was like "Huh?" then someone landed on it and learned what the orbs did. I loved the concept it. I then get plenty of orbs and set as many as I could on the board. XD
So then when it was nighttime, I learned that there was a new mechanic: Day & Night. When it was Nighttime, Twila made each star 5 coins. I was shocked. My friend got as many stars as she could. I unfortunately could not get there within the time. :/
So then my friend had to leave... But then I was grateful for having her introduce me to this game. I had a WONDERFUL time and didn't want to stop playing it. So I was determined to get it.

So one day, (was still in Grade 1) I couldn't go to school since I was a bit sick. It was just me and my mom. She takes me to the mall. (as I couldn't be home alone) I'm just impatient for her to get clothes and other stuff. :P
...But then we walk by an EB Games. I ask her if I can buy a game. We go inside, and I notice Mario Party 6 was there. I was like "OH HELL YEAH, I'M SO GETTING THIS :D" We finally get home, and I couldn't wait to try it on my own.
I was having the best time of my life. I played Towering Treetop. (a complete game this time ;p) I was having so much fun. When the mini-game randomizer comes up, guess what my 1st mini-game was? Daft Rafts. I was kinda confused about the mini-game rules at 1st, but then after a few practices, I do the real thing. I won. :D I also remember playing Cannonball Fun, Same is Lame but that's it. Don't remember the others XD
So I get the 1st star. Then the star appears at a faraway location...
So then I remember Orbs. I used my Yellow/Red orbs as soon as I possibly could since it was so fun setting them on the board. Then when my rivals paid the price I was even happier. :D
Night falls, and I learn you can use Pink Boo to steal. I was like "oh hey that's like Chain Chomp from Mario Party 5". So then I visit him and have him steal stars. Fortunately my rivals didn't get to him. XD
So at the end of the game, guess who won? Me. I had 6 stars and like 70+ coins. (approximate, don't remember exactly how much LOL) I was so happy I won my 1st board, so I decided to do another. Faire Square.

So I do Faire Square. I was like "Hey, I remember playing this with my friend!" I remembered the Slot Machine, the Orbs, the buying of multiple stars... I was in heaven. Oh my god it was the best time ever. When Twila made the stars 5 coins, I took advantage of that. Because of it, I had like 30+ stars. XD I won again. :D

Ok, now enough about my history... xP

I love the boards of this game to death. The orbs, the Day & Night, the events, the mechanics just made this an amazing game for me to play. I love Faire Square and E. Gadd's Garage. I love the orbs on E. Gadd's Garage and the events, even if it is a simple board. And when I say orbs, I mean orbs available. (YES I'M NERDY TO THE POINT WHERE I KNOW THE ORBS AVAILABLE ON EVERY BOARD XD)

I love the mini-games of this Mario Party as well... Though I hate the luck mini-games, Stage Fright and Snow Brawl (as the lone player), Conveyor Bolt (Nighttime as the lone player) and Ray of Fright (as the team). Those mini-games I can only win if I'm lucky. :P

I loved this game as a kid and I still do to this day. It's my favorite of the GCN Mario Parties. Actually it's my favorite in the Mario series and one of my favorite games ever! :D

Mario Party 4: A great game to shake up the series and make the switch to the GameCube's superior graphics. This game is mainly good for minigames, although there are so few. Only 62! That hardly surpasses the first Mario Parties minigame count of 58. The board gameplay is kinda slow. I give this on a rating of 7.5

Mario Party 5: I've never played it, so I'm not giving it a review.

Mario Party 6: My favorite GameCube Mario Party! The day/night system is so smooth. It's like you're playing a different board! The minigames are fun too. I give this one a 9.

Mario Party 7: It's good, I really like the boards and the minigames, and the 8 player gameplay. But this game signals the spot where Mario Party started to decline. This (to me) is the most unoriginal Mario Party made. I'll give it a 6.5.

I would say 5 is my favorite of the GC Mario Parties. It was a great game overall. I loved all the boards, super duel mode, and everything in bonus mode. I adored that ice hockey game in bonus mode. I also loved most of the minigames, especially Curvy Curbs. I can't help but smile while playing that game and listening to the CPU's hit the sides.

There's just something about the fifth one I seem to love more than anything else; could be the mini-games, soundtrack, the boards, finally bringing Toad and Boo into the mix, just the way playing 5 feels.

My favorite out of the GameCube Mario Parties is definitely Mario Party 6. I've had more fun overall than I did with 4,5, and 7. The boards and the day/night feature really made this Mario Party stand out for me. It also had great mini-games and fantastic music. It has the last appearance of Woody and Mean Woody from Mario Party 2 and 3 respectively. I believe it has the best battle mini-games out of all the Mario Parties. I honestly can't find anything wrong with this Mario Party (I like Mario Party 3 better).

My favorite game is Mario Party 6 because it has the day-night system, a Mic Mode game Speak Up!, and the music was great. It also has a Solo Mode when you can get mini games faster.

Hm. My favorite(And out of the entire series) is 5. I played it a lot when it came out. Here's my order on the GCN MP's.

5>7>4>6

Six is my least favorite because of the weird Day/Night system. Is it necessary to change the time of day in the game? It had OK Minigames and boards, other than that, I see it as a ok addition but did some things that shouldn't have happened.
