The 24 Games of Christmas! Day #4: Super Mario Party

2 mins read

Christmas is on the way! It’s time to adorn the tree with dazzling lights, bust out the obligatory TV specials, and gobble festive treats faster than the chef in your family can put them down. More importantly, it’s a precious opportunity to ditch your routine and bask in the company of those you hold dearest.

There might not be snow banks to leap into depending on your geographic coordinates, but video games under a blanket can provide fun with 100 per cent less mess (barring severe eggnog mishaps). It wouldn’t be Christmas at DDNet without our requisite list of games to keep you warm and cozy for the holidays. Each day until Christmas, we’ll highlight a title that’s perfect for passing the time, bonding with friends, or stuffing in your buddy’s stocking.

Join us on this 24 day adventure as we count down to the most wonderful time of the year. Merry Christmas!

Game #4: Super Mario Party
This year, developer Nd Cube’s gift to the world is a Mario Party game that doesn’t feel like a missed opportunity. Entries like The Top 100 and Mario Party 10 were serviceable in their own ways, but their experiments with the classic formula and subsequent design compromises left many scratching their heads. Teeming with personality in its presentation and sporting clever variations on the classic board game shenanigans, Super Mario Party is the return to form the world craved. There are kinks, sure, but the masterful multiplayer action of the Nintendo 64 days is back. It’s an essential purchase for casual Christmas fun.
