Video Game Franchises That Won't Die

Super Mario Bros. 1 of 16

For gamers of every generation, your first experience with Super Mario Bros. is a new and exhilirating gaming experience. Mario and his friends (and enemies) have been giving gamers awesome new experiences every few years, with new worlds to explore and new abilities to master.

Did you know that Mario's first appearance was in the arcade hit Donkey Kong? Mario, Princess Peach, and Donkey Kong were only created after the game developers couldn't secure the rights to use the characters from the "Popeye" comics!

Mario isn't going anywhere, but what about these other popular gaming franchises?
