Mario: The Most Talented Video Game Character Ever?

It’s sad, but true; we really do take Mario for granted these days. As Nintendo keeps thinking of new places for him to collect stars, and keeps making him the “average” character in all their racing, fighting and sports titles, the little plumber’s talents are often taken for granted. But really, I’m not sure that anyone in video game history has a more diverse skill set. Granted Master Chief has slain probably 100,000 aliens by himself, and Kratos has murdered probably the entire population of ancient Greece, but they both pale in comparison to Nintendo’s commander in chief, as seen in this very short but accurate infographic above.
