Super Mario Bros. turned 30 yesterday and the plumber hasn't aged one bit. He has appeared in so many games over the last thirty years and some weren't even made by Nintendo! Here are our top 5 Mario references in other games!
5. Assassin's Creed 2
Do you remember the first words Mario ever uttered on the Nintendo 64? Ubisoft certainly remembers judging by this scene in Assassin's Creed 2. They made another reference with an achievement called "Principessa in Another Castello." Guess they just couldn't resist with a game that takes place in Mario's homeland.
4. Asterix & Obelix XXL 2: Mission: Las Vegum
Asterix & Obelix XXL 2: Mission: Las Vegum is full of references to other games. And of course they also had to include a reference to everybody's favorite plumber. This poor Mario Sunshine knock-off is too ugly to live so we were glad they made him an enemy you could stomp.
3. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel has a room themed after Mario, complete with a retro graphical style and warp pipes. The designers even put an Easter egg within the Easter egg! Just like the second level of the original Super Mario Bros. you can hop onto the ceiling to access the secret Warp Zone. And it has three treasure chests to boot!
2. Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes
The Gamecube game Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes had Amiibo way before Nintendo ever did. Snake could spot small figurines of Mario and Yoshi on top of a computer in a laboratory. Shoot Mario and you regain health. Shoot Yoshi and he just says his name. This just makes us wish that Amiibo would make sounds too!
1. Dying Light
It looks like the Techland team is fond of a certain Nintendo property starring a moustached plumber. This Easter egg hidden within Dying Light whisks you away to a magical kingdom where you have to tackle a Mario Bros-themed level. First-person-Mario looks pretty awesome to be honest. Maybe this could be a launch game for the upcoming Nintendo NX?

We don't really do Minecraft, but we do appreciate Minecraft. So never say never to use playing Minecraft Hunger Games or some other game mode. Tamtu likes to sing Frozen songs, but there's no game for that yet... Perhaps we should play Singstar Disney's Frozen songs. That'd be funny if we would play Minecraft and sing Frozen. Hell, let's make a Frozen Minecraft parody. ^^

+The Fantastic Paul so youre saying the only reason to be a dick is because that's just the way its always been. logic like that is whats wrong with the world. I asked a question...figured there was something wrong with the video people didn't like...guess I didn't realize it was just bunch of troll ass kids.
