"Created by Shigeru Miyamoto, Mario has been with us since 1981. Serving as both the mascot of Nintendo and as one of the faces in all of video gaming, there is hardly anyone out there today who doesn't know the hero of the Mushroom Kingdom. For the past 28 years, Mario has been involved in almost every type of media and merchandise, from Comic books to Shampoo and he doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Regardless of what type of "fanboy" you might be, we all hold Mario in a special place in our hearts. So, in a combined effort due to nostalgia and a bad case of insomnia, let me give you 100 reasons we love Mario."
