11It’s-a me, Mario! And I’m playing sports!

Forget gold coins, Mario is after the true gold in these sporting classics.

Mario is an everyman: a simple plumber with a heart of gold (maybe that’s where he stores all his gold coins?). But, outside of just rescuing Princess Peach, Mario is also quite the sporting idol. A legendary golfer, tennis pro, baseball and football player. He might not have the physique for it, but don’t let that fool you: he’s basically a stereotypical jock – but a very likeable one!

There’s so many Mario sports games out there, but we’ve narrowed them down to the top 10. The Premier League standard of Mario sports games, if you will. Mario must be completely exhausted by now…
