This,
Smart Phone games are taken were ever you go and usually just used while you wait in a line.
Sports games grab people who normally never play games just so they can buy the games.
COD games and some other shooters are the pinnacle of casual gaming, anyone can pick up the game and be fairly good, at it 60% of the online community is casual, also known as cannon fodder by the other 40%.

recently? Huge C. Even people who have never played a 2D platformer can play through it in a reasonable amount of time. There are obviously things that they'll miss out and certain bosses they'll have trouble with, but they're appealing enough to casuals that I think you can classify them as being "casual" games(although the entire casual vs hardcore comparison is BS).

My argument for Mario games, they usually require some skill, and have a learning curve.
So yeah it is casual, but Mario was made to be a challenging game that anyone can play and get better at.
But epitome of casual?( whatever epitome means) There are bigger casual nets.

Mario is for everyone, always has been, always will be

he spans across most if not all genres, from the 70s to now til forever

if that makes him casual, then yes, he is the epitome of casual games

Candy Crap Saga and CoD have it beat by miles. My mom plays CCS nonstop (before that she had a Tetris machine to play with) and she avoids game consoles like the plague (Yes that includes Wii)
