I was going to comment on this, but upon further thought, it's best not to.

You still commented. ;)

Yes, but I didn't say anything.

And still has a higher meta score than Days Gone.

I tell you Nintendo dont gotta work half as hard, as other developers to get good scores for games.

This is why singleplayer is better.

^ this, has always been my opinion.

.......you just can't help it always have to console wars huh



Its a very shallow game. Mario Tennis on the GBC and GBA are the best. I very much like the idea of playing with my own custom character that I built vs just Mario characters.

Pika-Pika!!  [translator >> you two really make a cute couple]

...and I think Tennis is much better in real-life.  Plus, anyone who 'rage-quits' a Nintendo-game might want to seek out therapy for some sorta hidden and undiagnosed mental illness.

We have help for you, please call today.

Nah, no, don't say that. You're just being annoying there. "I think it's better in real life", well, that's great for you, but that doesn't mean everyone has access to a tennis pitch, knows people who would like to play with them, or even has the required skill. Videogames are there for a reason, even when they're simulating something that exists in real life (which is not even 100% applicable to Mario Tennis), they're there to make it easier, simpler, and accessible.

Also, while rage-quitting in general isn't ever a cool thing to do, it can be incredibly frustrating to play competitive games (especially online) sometimes, and that goes for every competitive game, Nintendo or not.

That tired narrative is so annoying.  If that were the case Kirby Star Allies, Triforce Heros, Federation Force, Star Fox Zero, Paper Mario sticker star, and Color Splash would have gotten a free pass.  Mario Tennis would have also scored higher as well.

Not to mention you are comparing two different types of games and scores can't be directly compared anyway.  Days Gone was just a sub par game for what it is, and people need to accept that.  I have, and I was hyped for it.

Im thinking mainly from a Graphics/Audio design point.
You dont see Nintendo useing Motion capture, voice actors, ect.

Them going for this simplistic look in graphics with the cutesty art style, saves them tons of money and effort.

In terms of gameplay and design, alot of their games are also very simplistic, compaired to what other game devs have to go through, to get a good metascore.
I guess this begs the question, why other developers dont try to copy the style nintendo uses?

Days Gone got baised reviews, from media because of SJW mentality amoung reviewers.
Sony bend should have known better than to invoke their wrath by going against the norm though.

In the context of the thread, isnt it relivant?

People are saying Mario Tennis is shallow, and multiplayer doesnt work, ect ect.

Real issues that should effect the score of a game, but its scored higher than Days Gone, which is probably the best looking open world game on the market. I feel like this thread kinda proves my point, nintendo games just score really well for little effort.

Hmmmmm...I believe you may be right about the SJWs.  Now I am thinking about buying it just because they hate the game.  😂

The best co-op challenge was still the first one with boo's. The Shy Guy challenge was OK but the Yoshi challenge is quite boring. I always hope to get CPU players, because then you know what you're getting. You're right that you really have to be lucky to find human players that are good and understand the basic rules. The overall idea of a co-op mode is good, though. It's a welcome change to the hard online tournament competition.
