Hey fellow Waypoint fans!
The summer weather where I live has naturally got me thinking about video games, specifically sports titles. As you can tell from the title of this topic though, I’m not really picturing Madden or NHL.
For as much as people joke about Mario’s sports themed spin-offs, there are games in that series that I absolutely love and would be so happy to see a sequel too. Mario Kart is the obvious choice for many people in this category and I would be overjoyed to see which game in that series is your most treasured.
But I am more interested in the more… Less drivey sports. Mario Golf, Mario Strikers, Mario Baseball, the list goes on and on! My personal favourite is probably the original Mario baseball for Gamecube. I have had so many amazing couch competitive sessions with that game and the sheer number of characters and team comps leads to so many interesting turns of events. Plus the story mode is actually super rad?
A brief follow up question, which sport would you like to see Mario & friends take up in future standalone games? I would love to see Mario Hockey.
