Sorry to burst your bubble but since Mario first appeared in Donkey Kong in 1981 he actually is 34 already. Also that is actually the first Mario game I played and besides Pack Man its one of the best arcade games from the early 80s.

That was Jumpman, It was not called Mario until 2 years later and its first videogame with that name is Super Mario Bros, and the 30th anniversary is for that game.

Mario did appear in a game in 1983 but its Mario Bros. and not Super Mario Bros.   Mario Bros. is also the first game where Lugi made an appereance.  Also the first game where Mario is offically named Mario is Donkey Kong Junior from 1982.
