In my opinion, the Mario games are some of the best of all time. Whether you have a gamecube, wii, or some kind of ds, Mario games are #1. Not only are they classics, but they're also fun and challenging. They've been around since the N64 and the first version of gameboy. There are also so many of them. From the basic Super Mario Bros. and Mariokart to new version like Mario party and Mario Galaxy. They evn paired him up with Sonic for the summer and winter olympics. He obviously isn't going anywhere. Mario will be around to enjoy for many years to come.
