Super Mario Party
Super Mario Party is a solid game that finally got the series back on track and back to its roots. For a few generations, Nintendo has experimented with the Mario Party formula to mostly not-so-great results.
Super Mario Party was the much-needed return to form that fans wanted. The biggest issue, though, with Super Mario Party is that it was a little lacking in content. It only had a small handful of boards that wore out very quickly.
Many people, myself included, assumed that the reason for this is that there would be more boards added on as free updates or paid-DLC depending on how generous Nintendo was feeling.
But nope, Super Mario Party came out… and that was it. This is in spite of the fact that Nintendo has recently warmed up to post-launch content. Mario Tennis Aces for example got regular free content for about a year.
Super Mario Party is joined by Mario Kart 8 Deluxe as games that, for whatever reason, despite being very popular, never got any DLC. At least in the case of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, one could make the argument that the reason is that it was a port, but Super Mario Party is a total mystery.
