    Um, Joust was from Williams, not Atari.

    You missed the Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars game that was released on the SNES in 1996.

    'koopa' was actually the americanization of the word 'kappa' which is a japanese imp with a turtle shell.

    The Super Mario Bros movie was surprisingly good. It didn't adhere to the video game well; it was pretty much its own story with Mario Bros characters. It was geared towards children.

  • John W. says:

    Umm. Super Mario Bros. 3 was definitely bundled with console hardware. My local game shop still has an NES with original box showing Mario 3 as the bundled game.

  • Larry says:

    they also missed mario paint, all stars, all the mario karts, all the sports games he starred in, also the games for game boy and virtual boy the list is not even close to complete, not to mention how short the character list is.

      I think they just named the platformer versions of mario. Naming every single game mario was ever in would take forever. (Punchout, anyone?)

    Mario Segale owned the warehouse where Nintendo stored their first U.S. arcade machine, Radarscope. The Wikipedia article is wrong, but if you reference Mario Segale's page, it affirms this. He did barge in, upset about the late rent. Radarscope sucked and was unsuccessful, so Miyamoto was tasked with building a game that could be made by converting the Radarscope machines. During this process, Mario's interruption inspired the renaming of Jumpman.

  • I had know idea that the music to open each phase of Mario was Mozart's Eine kleine Nachtmusik. Nice find Oral.

  • Rob Hearn says:

    Mario Segale wasn't Miyamoto's landlord and he didn't burst into his apartment. He was the landlord for Nintendo of America's office premises.

  • spiracy says:

    Mario Segale was the landlord of Nintendo of America's Warehouse location, and it was then NOA president Minoru Arakawa who he busted in on to demand rent, not Miyamoto.

    Mario was Nintendo of America's landlord, not Miyamoto's

    um, correction: mario brothers 3 was, at one point, bundled with the NES. i remember getting it for Christmas when i was 6, and i was very excited.

    Super Mario Land 2: 6 golden coins missed? Favorite gameboy game next to zelda

  • Henry says:

    No one mentioned Paper Mario Games.

  • sarcasticman22 says:

    you also forgot new super mario bros on ds

  • What's the best bundled Mario game package for PS3. I loved these games as a kid on the original Nintendo system, but I'd like to get them all on one disk so my kids can play them.
