So, let's talk about Super Mario. NetEntStalker placed this series in fifth. But really, it could go much higher. Its research suggested a $2,853 investment, but it could be much more. Especially since it noted a Game Boy Color to play the games, where a Game Boy Advance SP would be much more conducive and comfortable. In terms of systems to play on, you would need a NES, SNES, Game Boy Advance, N64, Game Cube, DS, Wii, 3DS, Wii U, smartphone, and Switch. We'll go ahead and say it would be about $2400 for the systems alone and say that you had some kind of deal on the smartphone.
As for games, being a true Super Mario fan meant picking up Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario Land, Super Mario World, Super Mario Land 2, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, New Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Galaxy, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Super Mario 3D Land, New Super Mario Bros. 2, New Super Mario Bros. U, New Super Luigi U (it counts!), Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Maker, Super Mario Run, and of course Super Mario Odyssey. That's 22 games! And what if you picked up the Virtual Console or Game Boy Advance rereleases of classic entries to have on a modern console or on the go? It all adds up.
