“Mario is not overused.” A controversial statement, to say the least. If you’d ask some random gamers what they think, you will likely hear the complete opposite of that every single time. And how could that not be the case? Mario has appeared in over 200 games and is likely the single most used character ever. It’s not just Mario either: Nintendo has Zelda, Metroid, Kirby, and many others as well. Where are the new intellectual properties, the new characters? Do the people at Nintendo have absolutely no sense of originality?
Well, actually….yes. Yes they do.
