This one...ho boy.

I don't think Super Paper Mario is a good game. Mostly cause it had terrible level design and terrible controls (Had to hold the Wiimote sideways). Even more unpopular opinion, I enjoyed Sticker Star more than Super. Sorry Super fans.

Not really Mario, but Nintendo.

The Wii U is a good console. I mostly think this because there are some really underrated games on the Wii U. MK8, Yoshi's Woolly World, Wii Party U, Paper Mario Color Splash, and Super Mario 3D World.

I think Mario Kart Arcade serie are unpopular because it play on arcade and not on console.

I might sound like a noob when I say this, but Baby Luigi might be one of the best characters. Sure, he's a small, but he has the biggest speed boost and the biggest weight boosts.

My unpopular opinion is similar to yours. But instead of not liking Super, I really don't like Origami King. See my "What are your least favorite Mario games" topic and scroll down a bit, I have an entire paragraph explaining why I don't like Origami King.

And if you don't want to do that, then just look here:
I personally didn't have fun with the game. I know this is a bold statement, but I legitimately had more fun playing Sticker Star than playing Origami King.
The boss battles are one thing in the game I hate with a burning passion. Because in almost every single other RPG EVER, boss battles are basically stronger normal enemies. You can use the skills you mastered in normal battles to take out the Bosses. But in Origami King? The Boss Battles are almost completely different. Plus, all the bosses in Origami King have a crapton of HP and do a crapton of damage. In addition, Blocking in Origami King SUCKS ASS compared to Color Splash. In CS, Blocking halves the damage you take, so if you block a 42 damage attack, you'll only take 21 damage. That makes learning how to block really rewarding, especially in late game. In OK? Complete Garbage. It barely helps to block. If you block a 42 damage attack, you'll probably take 38 damage. It's that useless.
Also, the sound it makes when rescuing a Toad is way less satisfying in OK than in CS.

I hate DS Luigi's Mansion, SNES RR, N64 Choco Mountain (or just MK64 in general)...

Im sure there are more popular tracks that I hate but im not bothered thinking right now.

I know I already posted, but that Baby Luigi opinion is gone from my head. Instead, I have this list.
The arcade games are pretty decent.
Ice Ice Outpost isn't that bad either.
There's no reason for guest characters to be in Mario Kart.
It's not that the Koopalings show up too much. They're just used horribly. (I can make a topic on that if you want)
Nabbit was a lazy character option for NSLU.
Mario Kart Wii's motion controls aren't bad once you get used to them.

You hate DS Luigi's Mansion? I really agree with you on that one

Super Mario 3D World was a good game.

I've outlined most of them before (my love of Partners in Time, my low opinion of Mario Kart Wii, my love of Brawl, etc), so I'll quote those posts and throw some new ones in.

I've always had a soft spot for Partners in Time, never got much of the hate for it. If anything, I think the only reason it's forgotten is because it's sandwiched in between 2 other great games, so it gets lost in the shuffle.

Recently I've come to terms with it being overrated as hell, along with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. While 8 Deluxe sometimes gets the hate it rightfully deserves, Mario Kart Wii is more often than not seen as the gold standard of karts. And honestly I don't know why.

Is it a bad game? Certainly not. I respect it for introducing me to the series back in 2009. But I feel it's the beginning of the end, with each subsequent kart becoming more boring, more safe, easier, less technical, etc.

At least I like it more than Double Dash.

If you could add any character from anything into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, who would you add and why?

The short answer is anyone except Waluigi.
The long answer is that there were only 2 characters I was excited for before the release who didn't get in, being Shantae and Shadow. Most likely Shadow would be more feasible, most likely due to putting less work on the dev's part (almost guaranteeing they would make him a semi-clone (read: echo fighter) of Sonic), but Shantae would offer a bit more variety.
An honorable mention is Geno. He would be a nice pick that would be a crowd favorite but have fun getting the rights from Square Enix.
Ultimately though I don't put much thought into it, since I personally don't play Smash Ultimate. Tried it a couple times but I still prefer Brawl overall, even if it's very janky.


And some others...
-I feel the Wario Land series desperately needs a new game, I loved Wario Land Shake It when I was younger and the fact that there hasn't been a follow-up since then (nearly 13 years) is baffling.
-The Nintendo Switch is the biggest waste of potential Nintendo's ever done since the Virtual Boy, they take a great concept and stuff it full of ports and sequels that don't do anything new.
-This isn't exactly Mario-related but might as well include it anyways. I may rant on how the Mario Kart series has become oversimplified since MKW, but I don't think anything compares to the rapid fall from grace that Pokemon has. Bear in mind these games weren't hard to begin with, but most everything from about HG/SS onward seems to have been made deliberately easier, possibly due to complaints of excessive non-linearity in D/P, to the point where I've personally sworn to never give another dollar to Game Freak and The Pokemon Company for the foreseeable future, possibly forever if they keep going down this path. Legends looks promising as I've said before but Game Freak and co. will find a way to fuck it up somehow.
For more info on how Pokemon has been pacified more than it already was to begin with, I recommend to watch the video linked.

There's definitely more, but either they aren't Mario-related (the whole "Fortnite bad Minecraft good" thing is a scourge upon mankind and has actively made me want to play Minecraft less), too minor to really matter (The Galaxy games are a bit too linear for my liking, especially Galaxy 2), or just aren't on my mind at the moment.

Mario Paint on the SNES, because it is freaking stupid and you cant speed run it. (well you can but it would be stupid to do so.)

My unpopular opinion is that I FRICKING LOVE Wario Stadium from MK64. The lightning is easily the best choice of an item to use, especially at the jump.

SNES Rainbow Road, not overrated, but is VERY overused. I am getting tired of it, but each remake is easier. So I can safely say the original is probably the worst with the best being... Tour?

I actually like MK Tour. I dislike Vancouver Velocity. It's not really a fun track IMO. People say the music is amazing and catchy, IT'S NOT. It's kinda boring.

I also love most of the desert maps and hate the beach tracks GBA onward.

That's all I have at the moment.

Bonus: Not Mario, but I LOVE Nicktoons Unite! games, but they all received mixed reviews.

Cheep-Cheep Island is the best Mario Kart track ever.

Mario Kart Super Circuit on the GBA is a really underrated game. It controls great and the track design is just as good.

Super Mario Sunshine is the worst 3D Mario game, and Super Mario Land 2 with Super Mario 3D Land are criminally underrated. Also, I actually find Sticker Star good, because I've never really like RPGs, so I think this half-platformer half-RPG approach is really good.

For a Mario Kart opinion, Waluigi Pinball is WAY too overrated. And Waluigi as a character.

How can I not see the-game-that-must-not-be-named on here, Super Mario Sunshine?

First of all, the controls are horrible. The FLUDD pack isn’t even fun to use. Especially the Squirt Nozzle. Also, it’s not satisfying when you collect a Shine Sprite. Also, this game is more unnecessarily hard for no reason than Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels!

I always avoid this game. And when I do play it, i instantly regret it. It’s a good thing that Super Mario Sunshine wasn’t ported or remade until Super Mario 3D All-Stars, and I would honestly hate it if a Super Mario Sunshine 2 came out.

For a Mario Kart opinion, Waluigi Pinball is WAY too overrated. And Waluigi as a character.

Waluigi Pinball suffers from casuals ranking looks and concept over all else. No doubt I would be constantly trash-talking it if that's all it had (like I do MKDD), but luckily it plays fairly well in both MKDS and MK7.
Waluigi as a character suffers from underexposure and so he's seen as this crown jewel that every game must have or it's automatically bad and every Ninty shit-licker will complain about his absence for the next 5 millennia. I'm like 90% sure there are still people whining about Waluigi not being in Smash Ultimate. Had he been given as much screen-time as the Koopalings, no doubt people would be begging for him to stop being in games!

Mario Kart Super Circuit on the GBA is a really underrated game. It controls great and the track design is just as good.

The game controls pretty well and the tracks don't actively work against said controls (most of the time anyways), so I'll agree with you there.

I'm sure most of you know this by now, but I HATE Super Mario Sunshine. And THAT is definitely an unpopular opinion.

I'm not going to go into that again, but if I had to choose another one, it's Super Mario Kart. Like, the original on the SNES. The controls and graphics are horrible, battle mode isn't playable with computer players, all the tracks are numbered except for one, everything about this game is horrible, I hate it, it sucks.
