The 10 Most Influential Retro Games: Super Mario Brothers - Game Revolution

"Ah, Super Mario Brothers. The game that started it all for so many of us, myself included. It's almost impossible to go over the history of the industry without discussing Nintendo's favorite plumber, his green-loving baby brother, and the princess that launched a thousand wars… like Helen of Troy, but more pink. And kidnapped by a giant spiked turtle. And drugs." - Kevin Schaller (25th Anniversary Edition of Super Mario All-Star, Culture, Industry, Retro, Super Mario, Super Mario Bros.)

I've always thought of Super Mario Bros as the most influential video game, regardless of retro or not.

First video game that had an ending that I finished. It was pac-man and pinball before Mario in the arcades.

The one that really made it cool to own a video game console. This was THE thing to own back in the day.
