The making of a versatile game character

I just came up with this thought: Mario is, by far, the most versatile video game character ever made. He’s such an ideal franchise to have. Known worldwide, he appears in games of all sorts of genres.

Think for a minute: not only the platform games he is so famous for, but dozens, if not hundreds, of others. Sure, there’s Mario Land, Mario World, Mario 64… but how about Mario Tennis, Mario Golf, Doctor Mario??

And then there’s Super Smash Brothers, Mario RPG, Paper Mario, and the list goes on…

If I missed something, feel free to comment :)

It’s impossible to think Nintendo without thinking Mario. Taking that a step further – it’s impossible to think of video games without thinking Mario.
