Should I trade in Super Paper Mario (Wii)

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Should I trade in Super Paper Mario (Wii)

I have a gamestop coupon via email that would get me $35.00 for Super Paper Mario.  Should I trade the game in?  I usually like to keep the classics, but for me I am questioning the replay value of this game. 

What would you do?  Keep SPM or trade it in?

trade it in! $35 is a great value, and if the replay value is low, that should persuade you into trading it in.



"I don't believe anyone walks into a game store with $600 in their pocket and wonders what console to buy." -President of Worldwide studios Phil Harrison "Nintendo Wii has been a successful enterprise, and a very good business compared with ours, because it's cheaper." -Sony chairman and CEO Howard Stringer

I would trade it in, especially for $35. You can always buy the game again when it hits the greatest hits list for $20.

I only keep the "true" classics from any console. While SPM may be a great game, the only true classic on the Wii (not counting MP3 yet because I haven't played it) is Twilight Princess.

For example, the only Xbox games I have left are the two Halos. The rest are gone. I haven't cleaned out my PS2 collection but it was never big to begin with, I loaned a lot of games from friends. In the case of PS2, there aren't many... GTAIII, Shadow of the Colossus, maybe a few others. GT would make it but I don't keep racing games, they age terribly.


For the GC, I kept RE4 and WindWaker. I was never a SSBM fan (not into fighting games) so that wasn't an issue.

I thought Nintendo didn't often lower prices on their games, so I don't see it becoming a greatest hit for 20 bucks. Conversely, in 2 years, you can probably buy a used copy for 20 bucks anyway, but support the companies that make you, not glorified pawn shops posing as game stores! Or, just regular pawn shops I suppose.



See Ya George.

At least following a comedians own jokes makes his death easier.

I tend to keep every game that I ever get. Maybe I'm a sucker, but if I really enjoyed the game, just the sight of it brings a little bit of nostalgia. Plus, 10 years down the road, your kids will love you for it! Or hate you when you ground them from the game room.

Blargh.

No, Nintendo does Greatest Hits. I bought Paper Mario for GC for $20 and I know that several other games hit that price range new on the GC (though, knowing money-grubbing Nintendo, now that the Wii is popular you're less likely to see those).

i think you've just inspired me to trade in super paper mario, eventhough i never trade in games. its a decent game but i really don't know how people love the paper mario games so much, they are so simple and kiddy its almost painful (sad, since super mario rpg was so great). i think i'd only like them if i were like 5 years old. i have paper mario 64 and super paper mario but both just have no depth or difficulty at all. although the 2d/3d thing is way cool but the vast majority of the time when you switch to 3d its ridiculously simple because there is just nothing on the 3d field. if i can get a decent price for it i think i will trade it in. thanks for the inspiration. hmmm... wonder how much i could get for paper mario 64...



end of '08 predictions: wii - 43 million,  360 - 25 million, ps3 - 20 million

 

Games I've beat recently: Super Mario Galaxy, Knights of the Old Republic, Shadow of the Collossus

Um, Greatest Hits IS money grubbing. Boost sales of a game that no one buys anymore with zero development costs. Of course, it's not going to happen for a while yet.

True classic or not (I think it is) if you've finished it go ahead and trade it in. $35 is a great value for that game and it doesn't have any replay value so there's not a lot of sense in keeping it. I personally loved the game to death (my review here) and will probably keep it until I my gaming shelf gets full again and I need to do a clean out, but it wouldn't be one I would be upset to part with. I suppose if I did sell it 6-12 months down the line I would give it another play, but it's still completely sellable. Anyways, I'm rambling. Take the deal.



Trade it! $35 towards another game is definitely worth it. I wouldn't put Super Paper Mario among the alltime classics anyway. Great game, but not among the best, in my opinion.

Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )
