MasonicGamer.com - Okay, hear me out on this one, for my meaning may not be immediately apparent, but I think Angry Birds could be this generation’s Super Mario Bros. Sacrilege, I hear you cry, for how could I possibly compare a mobile phone title to one of the most iconic and influential video games ever created? Understand that I’m not comparing quality or gameplay, but simply the degree to which Angry Birds has gained public mindshare.
Super Mario Bros. is the game that everyone knows. Adults who don’t even play games are sure to be familiar with Mario, and probably have fond memories of playing as a child. Now, the adults who’ve long left their gaming childhoods behind have children of their own. They probably couldn’t name most of the games and characters their kids are into, but I’ll bet they could name Angry Birds.
