Yeah that's why I asked, no prob

I think it would be interesting, American football and hockey never get Mario games. I wonder if that's because Nintendo feels those markets are saturated enough by EA and 2K or of they just don't want to make them.

American Football is worldwide, ever heard of NFL Europe? And NFL plays exhibition games all over the world. I just heard today that they are planning to play 8 regular season games in 2008 all over Europe, and I there is talk of having one of those games in Egypt

If you consider "non existing" being generating more money than rougly 100 entire countries then you are correct. However, that is not small, so that makes you wrong, you just don't enjoy american football, therefore you choose to belittle it

As long as they do it right. I mean look at all the sports ganes they botch up. Soccer, Basketball, and so on. The only ones they do right is Mario Golf and Tennis.

Here is my idea for their Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, American Football Mario games:

1) There has to be full teams (they cant have one main character with a bunch of goombas on the team). They need to have to have matching teams like Mario team, DK team, Bowser team, and so on. There can be side characters on the team but they cant all be side character like Super Mario Strikers.

2) Items like mushrooms, coins, bombs, and all those should not be too intrusive. They need to find a careful balance on how they incorporate these items.

3) Each character has a special ability and they all have varying stats (stamina, accuracy....).

4) Online play, System Link Up, 4 player splitscreen, and all the works. Sports games are limited as it is give it as much replay value as possible.

5) Mini games should be relevant.

6) So far all Mario Sports games have been Second Part meaning Nintendo only publishes the game and some lazy dev uses Mario's franchise popularity to push a sluggish product. If Nintendo cannot find a dev that is willing to make a game that lives up to the tremendous potential that a Mario Sports game can be then NINTENDO SHOULD MAKE IT FIRST PARTY DEVELOPMENT.

7) They need to use lots of Nintendo franchise characters like DK, Kirby, and teams that make up smaller franchises like Kid Icarus, Ness and people like that all on one team. ALso hopefully some third party franchises like SONIC!!!

What do you think? I think this would make a great set of sports games.

Wii sports was originally designed with Mario characters, but as Miyamoto said at GDC the Mii pattern held up better than generic Mario figures.  This means that Nintendo may be thinking of introducing all sports in the Mii pattern (with real-life locations) in favor of the tired Mario series line of sports.  I know Super Mario Strikers is already in production, but doesn't it seem unusual that Mario Tennis Wii is nowhere to be found?
     If Nintendo combined more popular characters (like Pac-Man in Super Mario Kart GP2) and Mii's into games, it would increase playability as well as fun-factor of unlocking new ways to play a game.  Think of Mii's as the new DK mode; a feagure thats simple to copy, but difficult to outdo.  Lets hope the competition (and third party) picks up on this as quickly as gamers have.

Now that Miis are there to make simple sports games Nintendo doesnt have to make games like SUper Mario Strikers oberly simple with basic controls tiny fields and no rules. Now they can do the opposite because the Miis are those type of games now.

Yeah...that's most probable to happen. You're then going to see Mario Football: Extra Point or something like that (a 2nd part) and that's when that sport gets crappy with Mario. IMO, though, they must have made an american football game instead of the golf second part.

EDIT: Three times the same msg. My bad

you dont have to believe me if that is what you mean by your post. Just wait for the review to come out on the game. I guarentee you if it is made by hudson or one of those lazy devs they will make as crappy as all the other Mario Sports games.

I whole heartedly disagree. The Camelot Sports games are my least favorite from the series. They feel generic and void of character. Where as Super Mario Strikers and Mario Superstar Baseball are cream of the crop of the Mario Sports series. IMHO.

Because that's how it's spelled in hispanic language. Soccer and Football are distinguished by 'futbol' and 'futbol americano' respectively.

Well reviews and sales dont lie when both count against a game that game game being Mario Gold and Mario Tennis scoring and selling much better. Granted they are easier to develop being more of passive type sports but if your gonna do games like soccer and  and baseball where LOADS of potential are but wasted that pisses me off.

i have been thinking about that ever since i was born, i could just imagine being luigi and running down the field to get stopped by a chain chomp. I really could imagine them doing this. Bigger characters like bowser could be more powerful and truck people while poeple like kirby can have speed. I think if they did, it would be more like backyard football, and not the football where yo have linemen and all of that.
