Today we bring you a quote about the dark horse of RPG badassery: Paper Mario. These choice words were pulled from a respectable forum on the topic of role-playing games.
The only RPG of any sort that I’ve seen revel in low health to an unusual degree is, oddly enough, the Paper Mario series—virtually every game in the series goes all-in on some sort of “Danger Mario” aspect where you ride the ragged edge of defeat in exchange for ludicrous power should you be clever and dexterous enough to find ways to mitigate and avoid even the slightest of damage.
I would like that printed on my tombstone.
