With Mario’s 25th birthday comes an influx of useless but awesomely interesting Mario trivia. Like this little snippet here that puts the sales of anything bearing the Halo or Call of Duty logo to shame: games starring Nintendo’s moustached little plumber have moved over 240 million units in total.
I’ll say that again: 240 f***ing million. Since his first appearance in Donkey Kong many, many years ago, Mario has starred in over 200 games. What’s even more mad about that massive number is that it only takes into account the core Super Mario series. What if the spin-off titles, random sports games and other stuff were taken into account as well?
