When Nintendo started taking our favorite plumber into the RPG genre, the results were fairly excellent. After Super Mario RPG gained its own following, the Big N followed it up with Paper Mario on the 64. Combining a unique art style with some solid gameplay, it would go on to
be one of the more popular games for the console.
However, Paper Mario is fairly basic and heavily overshadowed by its successor, Thousand Year Door. Keeping this in mind, there are those who still rave about this game and cite it as something that needs to be played for every gamer. To be fair, it's a great game, but all of the praise it gets classifies it as overrated.
