Because Mario is a character?

Mario has a face, a design. Simplistic, yes, but that helps with it too. He's easy to recognize very quickly. Pong are just blocks and a dot. Nothing against pong, it's just the way of things.

Mario has evolved as a character greatly since the Donkey Kong arcade. Pong has neither evolved or is a character of any kind.

Pong has made a huge impact in gaming, but it doesn't continuously do so, like Mario does.
