Go on the Wii U board and find a topic where the word fanboy isn't used. Its impossible.

If the games are enjoyable, then what's the problem with milking them? He is THE mascot, so of course he'd have more games than other iconic characters made by Nintendo.

Seeing the wide variety of games and genres he is in i wouldnt say any one Series is milked with the exception of maybe Mario Party

I don't think there's any denying Mario has been "milked". However, I hate it when people use the word rehash. All of the main series games (with the exception of Galaxy 2, which is a direct sequel) are extremely diverse.

I enjoyed RE6, and both FF13 games. I think Skyward Sword is the second best Zelda after Majora's Mask. I have no desire to play Skyrim. I actually like COD.

He's the mascot. It's just never worked for other companies. Many of those titles could have been made with random new characters and been good, but Mario earns them some more sales for it. It just makes sense.

Sega would have done it with Sonic more if they didn't lose out of the console market. Sony was going to do it with Crash Bandicoot, but they only signed for 3 games, so they sold the property afterwards.

Game news is the best news.

Monster Hunter Tri is one of the best Capcom games of this generation.
Of course, that's not saying much.

1. Mario GAMES, not cameos
2. I didn't include handhelds, like I said.
