It’s a Mario Party Here

mario party, gaming bloggers, wii bloggers, mario bros for kidsThe sign of a good video game is how much the kids fight over whom gets to play. Mario Party 9 entered our house a couple weeks ago and it’s been nonstop bickering over whose turn it is, who gets to choose their favorite character and who gets to be number 1.  This is the typical behavior for any Mario game honestly.

We owned Mario Party for the Nintendo DS and it was one of the most played games by all of the kids, including me. I liked Mini Games. Mario Party 9 for the Wii is shaping up to be the same kind of fun. I never realized there was a mission to all of the games; Bowzer Jr has managed to steal all of the mini stars from the heavens and it’s up to Mario and his friends to get them back.mario party 9 I just told the kids about this and they didn’t know. They literally just load the game and play whatever screen they land on, it doesn’t matter what the story is they just want to play.

Mario Games are always top choices in our house. Super Mario Bros is another game the kids love but one that I can’t let them play together. Even though they are on the same team they compete against each other with who gets to do certain moves, collect certain mushrooms and who is player 1. Apparently player 1 is top dog. I’ve said it before, the Wii is the perfect family gaming console especially with young kids. Mario games as a whole are probably the most entertaining and fun.
