For those who haven’t heard of it, there’s a sort of internet meme called ‘Luigi wins in [insert game here] by doing absolutely nothing’, that shows how bad the AI is in titles like the Mario Party series and Super Smash Bros by having one player win in various minigames or matches without even touching the controller.
But funnily enough, it seems like Mario Party Island Tour STILL has the same completely brain dead AI as the last games, since the folks at StreetPass Princeton have now recorded a video showing Luigi winning a bunch of Mario Party Island Tour mini games without moving! You can watch the video in the full article past the break…
Here it is:
As you can see, the AI is absolutely awful in this game. As in, they somehow run around like headless chickens in such a way that they actually put themselves INTO more danger than they would if they just stood still! It’s like watching a hyper active five year old with a three second attention span trying to play a party game, it’s that embarassingly bad.
But what do you think? Is it amusing how completely moronic the AI is in Mario Party Island Tour? How even after more than 9 games, you can still apparently win by not moving at all?
