    This hype for mario. I won't get it because I'm not interested in candy games for kids. They look like that anyway. Gameplay may be interesting but the design has never convinced me. Mushrooms, princess, plumber. Wait a minute! It was supposed to be a ranking about the best game series, not the most popular! ;D

    Even I liked Yakuza more than GTA series
    Only sad thing is you can't use vehicles and area is short and you can go other side
