i'm kinda thinking that if there was no mario, that platformers might be more popular today. if there was no mario, there would be no sonic, and there wouldn't be much in the way of platforming goodness in the early years. they wouldn't get the chance to overflow the market with platformers, and it would take longer to get unique ideas out of platforming. people wouldn't get so bored of platforming games so quickly because they wouldn't have much of a chance to. i think that the platforming phenomanon would not be as big, but it would last longer, perhaps even to now.
what do you guys think of my little theory?
