Call of Duty vs. Mario: The Public Face of Gaming

Which would you choose to define you? Like it or not, all games are either violent first-person shooters or colorful children's toys in the eyes of the non-gaming majority. Neither one makes for a great public image...but is there a lesser of the two evils? (3DS, Call of Duty, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Industry, Mario, New Super Mario Bros. U, PC, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I like both; Mario and COD. I hope Nintendo can continue to accommodate a "gamer" such as myself with both types of games on Wii U.

I wonder what they think of me as I don't own any FPS, or a Mario game as I sold my Wii a while back, I do have every assassin creed game even the vita one, I also have every metal gear, both batmans. Tomb raiders and elder scrolls 3,4,5

Lol

As to what camp I choose, neither im 33 I myself own an 360 as well as I ps3. I started gaming with the nes but my sisters didn't start gaming till the ps1 along with my parents, and my family are Sony peeps my parents own 2 ps3 and they play with the move, my 3 sisters all own ps3, they owned ps2 before the ps3. They have stuck with Sony for 3 gens likely won't change. The reason I said all this is because in my family the face of gaming is not Mario or call of duty, it crash, GT, soul reaver, tiger woods, little big planet. Hell I don't even like my families taste in games. But for myself, my family, my friends and families friends neither Mario or call of duty is the face of gaming

Well everyone is different, I own various games that are different experiences. I was about to argue with what you just said but by reading that I found a right answer. It's ll about perspective.

I myself comparing the two that's on topic: I own a lot of Mario stuff but never bought anything Call of Duty. But really there are soooo many other iconic games that have push the boundaries that it's just not a game but it's vastly popular with all sorts of accessories. Pac-Man, Sonic, Angry Birds, Halo. All about perspective because if you ask what's the most popular game out there, a lot of people will not just say Call of Duty or Mario.
