In about an hour or so, you'll hate every single one of them because Mario Party is nothing but a series of moments meant to destroy your closest relationships.

1. For instance, there's that moment when your friend in the lead gets cocky, starts slipping, and that ugly part of yourself revels in their frustration.

2. Or that moment when you realize everyone forged an alliance to defeat you because you happen to be good at a video game.

3. And then, after destroying your lead, they still gang up on you.

Because they care more about your suffering now.

4. That moment when one of you is losing so bad that you decide it's time as a society to give up on humanity.

Signs include: red face, sweaty palms, throwing of controllers, and finally evil diabolical laughter.

5. Leading to this inevitable Nintendo 64 thumbstick injury.

6. Or when that same person keeps complaining about the “competitive integrity of the game” because they really do need to explain why they're in last place.

7. That moment when you’re playing Granite Getaway and you realize you're happiest when gleefully watching your friends get crushed by a massive boulder.

10. Or when you end up alone in the 1 versus 3 mini-games? It's like Nintendo purposefully built the game to make you constantly feel betrayed by loved ones.

11. Any time when you’re always partnered with that friend. In last place. With no coins, no stars, and no chance of helping you win.

12. That time when you’re playing Honeycomb Havoc and the player behind you is the friend who just stole your star.

Your death is going to be shortly served up on this couch cushion to the face.

14. And when that one friend’s positivity becomes a mocking reminder that some people don't have a black well of corruptive competitiveness deep within their hearts.

IF I CAN'T BE HAPPY NO ONE CAN.

15. That moment when your friend in second place realizes they have no shot at winning, and then turns off the Nintendo 64/GameCube/Wii.

16. Though, the absolute worst has to be when you’re in the lead, and your lucky friend in last place gets Chance Time.

17. Until that is, the next day when you start the whole ugly cycle all over again.
