Paper Mario - N64 Game
Mario got back to his two- dimensional roots in this charming Nintendo 64 RPG. As the name suggests, Paper Mario takes place in a world where everything and everyone is represented by cardboard cutouts. However, this made for an experience that was anything but flat. The game’s RPG format allowed for unprecedented immersion into the worlds and characters of the Mario universe. Yes, the story was Bowser kidnapped Princess Peach, and now the Mushroom Kingdom looks to Mario for help...again. But, now you could talk to every citizen. You could learn why everyone looks up to Mario. You could explore the lair of Bowser and read his personal diary to discover why he keeps pulling these stunts. You could even team up 8 different classic Mario enemies, who all had their own compelling backstories and motivations to aid the plucky plumber. For the first time ever, Mario became more than an adventure. It was a story for you to experience. Similarly, Paper Mario was not your typical JRPG. Constant opportunities to make additional button inputs to block, deal extra damage, and even aim in combat made for a game that was far more engaging than any vanilla turn-based battle title. Between its fun and frantic fight mechanics, and irresistibly adorable pop-up book look, Paper Mario remains a classic reimagining of a superb Mario world that is well worth revisiting.
