11 Nintendo Games that Defined Their Systems

Mashable did a great post  on the some of the best Nintendo Game of all time that in turn made their systems successful. This includes favorites such as Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong Country, and Super Smash Bros Melee.


Number four on the list is Super Mario Bros. 3 and the article explains that some of it's hype was created from The Wizard. "In Dec. 1989, the movie The Wizard hit theaters — it featured extensive footage of Super Mario Bros. 3. The game had been delayed two years between its release in Japan and the U.S., so by the time Super Mario Bros. 3 arrived, fans were ready."

Talk about tie-ins. Apparently it worked because Super Mario Bros. 3 is still considered the most successful selling game for it's time with 17.8 million sales.
