Never underestimate the resilience of the Mario fan. Not only can they keep an entire company in business, seemingly indefinitely, but they can also work out how to place every one of the Italian Plumber's video game sin chronological order.
That's every game. Not just Super Mario Bros 1, 2 & 3 - we're talking every Kart, Smash, Party and RPG game to ever feature the red guy and maybe that other green guy.
This is a task that should be impossible, because -- obviously -- there is no chronological order to Mario games. Narratively they are, at best, a complete mess, and at worse intentionally nonsensical. There is no order; there is only chaos.
Thats said, someone's done it. So what the hell do we know.
