Mario, Mario, Everywhere
As most people know, Mario is a variety of games played on Nintendo gaming devices. Although many people may think that all Mario games are about Mario saving Princess Peach, that is not always the case. There are many types of Mario games that attract people that prefer specific genres, such as classic platform, party, and sports.
On the classic platform Mario games, they generally share the theme of Mario, an Italian plumber, trying to save Princess Peach from Bowser and other enemies by going through levels until the game is won and Peach is saved. Typically, these are played by one player at a time reaching for the final goal. Mario has to get past Goombas, Piranha plants, turtles, and other obstacles until he reaches the end of the level, in which he has to defeat an enemy such as Bowser, King Boo, and Big Bomb-omb. Once all of the enemies are defeated and Mario has made it to the end, Princess Peach and Mario are united. Most of the classic platform games come from the Super Mario series including New Super Mario Bros., Super Mario 64, and Super Mario Galaxy. Although all of these games follow the same theme, they are all unique, along with the many other Mario games.
Another very common genre of Mario games is party games. Party games are made to be multiplayer games, hence the word “party”. Most of the games involve each of the players choosing one of the Mario characters, including Mario, Luigi, Toad, Wario, Bowser, Dry bones, and many more. Once a character is chosen, they compete against their friends in a race, battle, or competition. Most of these games require skill, while others are based on luck. Some of these party style games are the Mario party series, WarioWare, and Super Smash Bros. All of these games are usually played for entertainment and a pleasant way to spend time with family and friends.
Mario sports games are also a very great way to pass...
