How many different video games has Nintendo's Mario appeared in?
Donkey Kong was a huge arcade hit, selling over 65,000 machines in the U.S. Its sequel, Donkey Kong Jr., was the only Mario game to feature Mario as a (gasp!) bad guy. Mario really hit his stride in 1983's Mario Bros. That game also marked the debut of his trusty sibling, Luigi.
All told, Mario has appeared in about 77 games, including everything from educational titles like "Mario: Fun with Numbers" to "Mario Golf." He is truly the everyman of the video game world. Long live the little guy.
