Where would we be without Mario and his brother Luigi? The little guy that was first introduced in the "Donkey Kong" arcade game in 1981 has gone on to much bigger and better things. The Mario brothers are synonymous with the Nintendo video games and have found their way into homes all around the world. The following short list represents the 3 most popular Super Mario games in 2010.
Super Mario Galaxy 2
Based on the name it is obvious that this game is a sequel to the hugely popular Super Mario Galaxy introduced in 2007. The new game takes players through a wide range of different planets and outer space scenes. Gamers can complete the different levels with just Mario or add Yoshi as a helper. The introduction of some different power-ups, as well as unique power-ups that work only when teaming with Yoshi, give the game a whole new variety of twists and fun.
Mario Kart Wii
The excitement of the Mario driving games are back in the new Wii module. The Wii wheel adds a more exciting feel to the game for players of all ages. Different tracks around the world along with new tricks give gamers all kinds of way to enjoy the driving! This game gives the option of picking from one of the characters found in Nintendo games or as their own personally designed character. These specially designed characters can also be found on the sidelines cheering on the contestants.
New Super Mario Bros
The Wii console has allowed Nintendo to fulfill a long standing goal; a multiplayer game that allows simultaneous play. The new platform can accommodate from 2 to 4 players. The players can work together in the adventures or go head to head in competition. One of the favorite additions is the propeller suit. This suit allows players to reach high altitudes in the sky through the Wii Remote movements. Another popular feature is Mario's new power to change to Penguin Mario.
