"Itsa Mario time!"
Well I did a Sonic 3 picture so I figured a Mario 3 one had to be on the horizon. Of all the Mario games, 3 was definitely the most influential. 1 was good but a bit too repetitive, 2 was a little too against the formula, but 3 is where I felt the mythos really started fleshing out with mini bosses, Bowser's kids, and the various world types, and to top it off the game predates Yoshi which is always a bonus.
More of an anti-hero type? Check out my Super Wario Brothers picture -
