BTW...If they bring Mario Party to the Virtual Console that means these minis are back too! D:

The N64 controller was the main problem.

Oh well, Cool! ^^ Then it's fine! ...I guess  :o

If Nintendo re-released MP1 on Virtual Console, they should at least program the joystick to make the games easy so that we don't get blisters.

I hated the minigames with the rotating stick. That really gave blisters to my hand. The old controllers couldn't take much of it either, without the stick wearing out.

Aw...  Almost everyone seems to hate it.  I hope no one used their thumbs for it.

Just use the palm of your hand.  Sure it might hurt after a while but that's a sacrifice you must be willing to make.

Don't be sissies.  =P

And sure, wear gloves, if it's that bad.

And if you're ready to go "We're not crazy game maniacs!  We actually have lives!", just don't.  We all know everything pretty well...

Get some gloves and beat some high scores.  Go do it.  =P

I hate these games cause on computers its impossible to play them. :P And just out of random chance the Tug-O-War game comes once every 5 turns it feels like. And Bowser makes you play Tug-o-War. I've lost too much coins to it. :-\

Seconding this. That, and the 1P game where you have to light up the bulb before the Boo gets you :P

On an unrelated note, watch out for references to emulation :P

I actually broke 3 N64 Controllers because of it. That's when I started hating Mario Party. :P

The developers could have replaced rotating the joystick with tapping buttons in MP1 just like in MP2.
