Before the Wii, there were many other gaming systems by Nintendo and only one gaming character that stands out above the rest. That character's name is Mario.

With the help of his brother Luigi, he won the hearts of many (including Princess Peach). Check out the gallery above for some awesome Mario finds.

Implications - Mario has been loved by gamers for a long time since the inception of the Famicom. As Nintendo grows, so does the beloved plumber who has become a staple in the pop cultural world. Mario has always been the face of Nintendo and as the company finds newer ways to make him even more accessible, he will continue to evolve sparking new inspirations in artists who wish to pay homage to him.
