2. Pushy Penguins – Mario Party 5

Type: Free-for-all minigame

If you asked me to describe Pushy Penguins in one word, it would be chaos. Complete, utter chaos!

Just look at the screenshot above. Each and every penguin there is on a mission to push you off into water that will instantly turn you into a block of ice. They have a vendetta against you for seemingly no reason, and it’s your job to somehow navigate through that mess and survive. It’s absolute insanity, yet that’s what makes Pushy Penguins so great.

I just wonder what Mario’s friends did to piss off all of these penguins!

    I remember when the first Mario Party came out, Nintendo offered everyone the chance to get a glove to keep from burning holes into the palms of their hands. This series is always fun. Great picks!

      I remember that all too well! The N64 control sticks were often huge victims of the original Mario Party minigames as well. I went through a couple of controllers just for Mario Party, and I have no regrets.

      The blisters I got from the first Mario Party were kind of unbelievable in retrospect. I pretty much tore my hand apart playing some of those games.

      Like Anthony, I regret nothing. :)

      Also, no Bumper Balls??

    I know that feeling all too well, Marc!

    Haha I love Bumper Balls, but I opted to take it out because I often got into stalemates when two players were left on the field. But, it’s definitely an awesome minigame :)
