All-Time Champion! Not surprised, 25 some-odd years later and the Mario 2D platformers are still tons of fun and the 3D games still amaze with their innovative gameplay. Mario Galaxies are genius.

I'm not surprised really... Nothing beats Mario!

I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

I think Nintendo stated this a while back. Great news! At the rate the games are selling these days it should be double that in 5 years. Or so....

Is there a franchise that has been as lucrative?

I account for several units within that 500 Million:

- Super Mario Bros

- Super Mario Bros 2

- Super Mario Bros 3

 - Super Mario World

- Mario Kart 64

- Super Mario Galaxy

- Mario Kart Wii

- New Super Mario Bros Wii

.. and a bunch of others that I can't think of right now.

I wouldn't worry about. There's like 1.5 apple fans on here. Ony 30% of which is actually dangerous.
