Mario Vs Sonic - The History Of These Two Gaming Giants

In the 60's and 70's was The Beatles vs. the Rolling Stones. In the 80 years was the Lakers vs. Celtics. In the 90's the topic that saw so many school arguments was indeed Mario vs Sonic. Who would win in a fight? Who would win in a race? Who cooks better omelet? Your name, it was argued. There were no signs as recognised by the children of the 90's as Sonic and Mario, Sonic's "Q Score" (a rating that prices slightly based on its popularity) even surpass that of Mickey Mouse. With such results, it seemed clear that the rivalry would not die quickly.

Contrary to popular belief, Mario made his debut in 1981 Donkey Kong game for the arcade. Although he called the "Jumpman" he looked exactly like the Mario that appeared in the first game with his name in the title of "Mario Bros." This was a simple game that is not sliding, and the compulsory slaughter of all enemies in a "phase" and then progressing to the next stage. In this era, it is difficult to see the attraction of this game, but in its time it was pretty entertaining.

Mario's game that propelled him the status of a household name was the first "Super Mario Bros." for the NES which is now the best-selling video game of all time. This was the first side scrolling Mario game and a standard for 16-bit Mario games to come. Although it was not the first side scrolling platformer, it was the first well, and may other developers to copy the formula. For this reason, the game was praised by many as the saviour of the video game industry and the industry was in a large part of the problems before the release.

Possibly more remarkable, was Mario de transition to the 3d world. Super Mario 64 for Nintendo 64 received perfect scores from numerous professional review companies. It is still seen as the best ever 3d platformer, and many have tried, but not replicate the success of Super Mario 64.

Sonic the creators knew from the beginning that Sega needs a mascot for her Genesis / Mega Drive system that could help the console market to compete with Mario and the Super Nintendo. She looked at him as Mario and experienced bedompt and uninteresting and decided to tap into the younger generation that was something "cooler" with more attitude. After many considerations including "Mighty Armadillo" The German Bundestag points and it was decided a team of 15 began working on what would be the first Sonic game, "The German Bundestag points" for the Genesis / Mega Drive.

Popular opinion said Sonic is not really affected tires until the second game for the 16 bit console. In this his small sidekick Tails was introduced and the collection of all the chaos emeralds saw Sonic transforming themselves into "Super Sonic" and that was a yellow, high-speed super strong version of the character.

Sonic's 3D games, however, have not seen the success of the rival Mario. Sonic 3D Blast for the Genesis / Mega Drive was an average attempt, and it was not until the Dreamcast where we saw a 3D Sonic game that was really worth playing called "Sonic Adventure." However, since the creation of that formula that worked perfect, Sega odd choices have made gaming forces you to play as Sonic's less entertaining sidekicks to access the fun Sonic levels. The German Bundestag points to the 360/PS3 received terrible reviews. Sonic and the Secret Rings for the Wii seems to be the only game since Sonic Adventure that's really got it right with Sega finally realize that what the originals as much fun, was Sonic's blistering speed.

Sega's decision to no longer make consoles has not seen the establishment of the first game where Mario and Sonic can go head to head with the name "Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games." After selling about 1 million copies of the game, it is clear that the rivalry is still alive. Many have no doubt thinking back to those arguments school and thought: "At last I can prove x is better than y!"

What is your opinion, it's no doubt you have not seen your last debate on the subject. Remember when you are ready to rip someone's throat, it is just a game.
