Today, March 10th, is observed as Mario day. This is because March 10th abbreviated spells out Mario! (Mar10)
I’m sure this applies to many of you as well, but I grew up with Mario. My introduction into the gaming world was through Super Mario World.
Since then I’ve played so many other Mario games. In fact, I just recently completed Super Mario Odyssey. It was such a good game and I love that there’s still so much to do after finishing the main story.
I would say thought that my absolute favorite Mario games are Super Mario Bros 2 and 3, Super Mario World and Odyssey. There are a few out there that I still haven’t played though. I’ll get to them someday I’m sure. 😅
The fun thing about Mario games is that there isn’t a whole lot of reading to do so it’s fun to sit down and play but at the same time it’s easy enough for a kid just learning to read to play. (I used video games a lot to help me learn to read.)
Mario is such a fun and iconic character. He’s been to so many different worlds and seen so many different things. No matter how many times he’s had to fight Bowser, he still keeps going back to do it again too.
That little plumber dude works hard.
