Yet another Mario game that we, and the other 24 million people who have bought the game, simply could not put down. New Super Mario Bros. guided the franchise into the next generation of consoles with a bang, or at least with a giant "Marioooooo!" Superb graphics, a lengthy campaign, and innovative new power-ups made for another gold star for Ninty.

FUN FACT: NSMB was the first non-remake side-scrolling Mario platform game since Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins in 1992. That's when Boyz II Men were No. 1 on Billboard, people.
