i still think this is one of the most well-designed and most charming games of all time, it's probably one of my top 5 ever. it just had great characters and enemies, a good world, and the badge system kept combat from being too monotonous. zap tap is the most fun badge and watt and parakarry are the best partners

>> No.6123701

I agree, but find it was too easy to "solve" the first two Paper Marios with spike guard and multibounce

That's a strategy game.

SMRPG is kind of outdated today IMO, it's still fun, but later games improved on its mechanics significantly

But your forgetting this gem one of the last n64 games

Bow is easily the best. Using invisibly every turn just breaks the game

>> No.6124481

Any game with linear turn order is easily solved IMO. This isn’t necessarily a criticism, I still love these games, but after a while you’re just leveraging the expected amount of damage you’re going to take and it’s fairly predictable. Even if an enemy seems “deadly,” you still are basically just working a math problem. Timed hits add an element of skill but PM doesn’t take it very far.

>> No.6124495

You can’t use it every turn, she loses her next turn after you use it.

>> No.6124498

Paper Mario is a good RPG if you want to introduce the genre to babies, but people who can count higher than 5 will want to look elsewhere.

>> No.6124503

You’re right, but even still I find it entertaining just to go through the motions, like a collectathon

Literally the worst Mario RPG.

>Not even the only JRPG on the N64

It's the best JRPG on the console for sure. But not even close to being the best of that generation.

>> No.6124517

It's based but the sequel is even better
Best partner is definitely Parrakarry or Bombette. Best level I think is Chapter 2, 6, or 7.
Check out Master Quest it just released this year.

Quest 64
Aidyn Chronicles

Is it still impossible to emulate Paper Mario? This thread made me feel like playing it, but iirc the emulation was awful.

>> No.6124625

but its not the only jrpg

>> No.6124629

having a strategy system with rpg elements doesn't make it not a rpg. Its still a rpg made in japan therefore a jrpg

This kind of logic is too hard for zoomers to follow

>> No.6124693

Two of the worst RPGs for any system. Quest 64 I can kind of write off as incomplete but had some good ideas even if the execution was horrible.

Aidyn Chronicles is by far not only the worst RPG of its generation, it might be the worst game on the 64. It is the harbinger of all the soulless, ugly, and empty console RPGs to come. There is nothing redeemable about it.

Still, they're RPGs which absolutely exist and to call Paper Mario the only one on the system is just an outright lie.

None of them are RPGs. I don't know why you people need to call every adventure game with stats an RPG, but it's nothing like Baldur's Gate or Gothic

I’m not the OP who claimed that Paper Mario is the only rpg on the 64.

I wanted Super Mario RPG 2. Instead I got this. Never played it and never will.

You're only hurting yourself. Paper Mario is better than SMRPG, and TTYD is even better

Sorry, can't get over the faggy look

So a beat 'em up with RPG elements like Tower of Doom is a JRPG too?

Also SquarEnix owns Geno so we'll probably never see him again. I'm salty over all of it and have been for 20+ years.

It’s not perfect but you should be able to finish the game fine. Kinda varies from computer to computer from what I’ve seen

Both look faggy, it's fucking Mario, but at least Paper Mario embraces it instead of having grimdark backgrounds and with jarring Nintendo characters on top of it

Are there any other games with the same aesthetic as SMRPG?
I mean a pre-rendered isometric RPG game

>> No.6125441

Pretty much all of them. That's classic RPG perspective

>> No.6125443

with 3D pre-rendered graphics?

>> No.6125451

It's 2D but looks like it's 3D because the perspective is isometric, like all other RPGs

>> No.6125458

Majority of early rpgs are top down. Isometric didnt really take off til Playstation.

If you want an isometric jrpg check out ps1’s catalogue til you see something you like.

pic related did the "timed hits" gimmick better than any mario rpg. also it wasn't a game intended for little kids like mario is.

One thing I kind of take for granted when it comes to SMRPG or Paper Mario is that they aren't bloated four discs long never ending movies full of filler content like a shounen anime.

I absolutely loved Mario RPG and it's one of the reasons I kind of regret getting a chink super everdrive instead of sd2snes

Can't remember Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga but the GBA library was fuckin lit, spent months playing great game after the other so honestly I don't recall much besides the sick spriteart and goofy sense of humor

I really should play Paper Mario

They just made a Wii U release. I don't think it can run on N64 because RAM, unless it works on Everdrive, I don't know.
