7 Best Video Game Franchises Of All Time

Posted on Monday, April 22 @ 16:00:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

Since the Super Mario Bros. series got its start on the NES, it has gone on to branch beyond the traditional 2D platformer to racing, party, puzzle, and several other genres.

After decades and decades of side-scrolling goodness, the series still has yet to lose its allure, and for that reason, it deserves the spot at number one.
