    Man... I love Mario.
    My mom said that in my childhood, when i was a 4-year old kid, i used to jump and get happy whenever Mario appeared anywhere, my mom tears when she watches me playing Super Mario Odyssey. Since i was little, i travel with this moustached hero, i love it. Thanks Shigeru Miyamoto.

    I never thought Nintendo made playing cards, sold noodles, toys, and gave taxi rides before it became the video empire it is now. And Mario was named after a warehouse owner? I did not see that coming; thanks for a little background to the origins of Nintendo and Mario
