Mario will never be 'Wii'


Mario will never be 'wii' Of all the video game characters, Mario is definitely the biggest and while walking through the mall today, I saw this as proof.  The smallest system has the biggest poster I've ever seen.  This is also proof that video games themselves are never going to stop growing.  Ten years ago I'd never seen anything this big hanging in a mall or on any walls outside of a game store.  While I've never been the biggest fan of the Mario franchise, I can certainly appreciate the direction the series has gone in.  There have been spin-offs such as the Wario games (even Luigi got his own game) that I've enjoyed and still enjoy.  Moreso than the games, I've enjoyed the poking and prodding that the gaming community has put out there of the Big M and the Big L.  Mario and Luigi just seem too easy.  But one must admit, being made fun of simply cements the fact that you are huge.  Mario is practically an icon in Japan...  Who'da thunk a country in Asia would idolize an Italian Plumber? What do you guys think, will there ever be a gaming icon bigger than Mario?
