|At least one coin was minted with Mario's likeness as a symbol to his contributions to the gaming industry, confirming his pop star iconic status.|
Here is the first game ever that made me stay up all night. Obviously, I have no regrets about that and would happily repeat the experience. Super Mario All Stars brings the best of Super Mario until the year of 1993 and he had already built a phantastical reputation back then. The game presents the player with the most successful games in the Mario franchise, ( again, it bears mention that the game was made in 1993, so the games were all crafted somewhere before that year) and it's easy to observe how in the early nineties the locus of power has shifted in Mariology. While in today day Mario has acquired a plethora skills along his successful career and has spawned diverse titles that has spanned virtually any gaming genre, back in the early 90's and late 80's Mario still resembled his original self from 1981 Donkey Kong- Jumpman. His capital asset was, surprisingly enough, his ability to perform platform-crossing jumps and the games practically evolved about his unique ability. Of course, there is more to Mario than just jumping around and this is why Super Mario All Stars is such a pleasant experience for Italian plmber fans and gamers alike.

|The first game in teh series, although it's not the first Mario game ever. Listening to the slow and stately title music is almost hypnotic, from beginning to end. Surely it pleased the Kami- as it certainly did me.|
