I think that Nintendo is doing a great job with Mario as a character, but gaming has changed and is changing and a character like Mario just can't keep up with a maturing audience.

Now that I'm thinking about it, Mario really doesn't need to mature. There are always going to be young gamers and older gamers who want a bit of nostalgia or even just something lighthearted to play. That is where Mario is and it seems that is where Mario will stay.

Well why should they?
New kids on the block every year right?

But then again what is mature?
Someone playing a Mario game can be mature as well, its just your own take on what is important to you.

Apparently, great titles that are made in the style of the grand classics will be out shined by games with bumped up graphics, violence, and FPS.

Gaming has change, along with it's "gamers".
