Talk:List of games by date

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia


Finally, this section contains EVERY Mario game EVER made, with pictures!!!! Of course, all except for the Donkey Konga games (Sigh).... 3dhammer.gif 3D, who wropte this LAST YEAR! WHEN HE WAS A n00b! And he's JUST NOW signing it! 3dhammer.gif

Not every one. I just added tons and tons of missing games to the list of games organized by system. Lord Falafel (talk) 09:38, May 24, 2019 (EDT)

Donkey Kong[edit]

Should more Donkey Kong games be added to the Games by System page? --Volker89

Yes, any Donkey Kong games count as Mario games. Paper Jorge ( Talk·Contributions·) Paper Jorge was here at... 13:16, 30 September 2006 (EDT)

Game & Watch[edit]

Shouldn't the Game & Watch Games be moved to the handhelds section? that is, of course what they are, for the most part... --DarkCat

I think so.... Sam, Get on it! HK

Info Boxes[edit]

I'm the new guy around here, but I assume that you're going to want infoboxes in all of the games in the game sections. Please leave a message if this isn't the case. --Wanderingshadow

Shouldn't the Philips CD-i game Hotel Mario be on they list? Or does everybody want to pretend that never happend :) --Thai420 21:35, 26 April 2006 (EDT)
Wanderingshadow, you can go ahead and put infoboxes in most of the games, if you wish. Just, make sure you can fill out most of the information before creating the infobox, as an empty one is useless and takes up space. You can find the infobox's wikicode on some of the more popular game pages, such as Super Mario World.
Thai420, you can add it if you wish, but, seriously, why would you want to? --DarkInsanity (talk) 11:20, 27 April 2006 (EDT)


I don't think the cameo section should link to pages. I don't see anyone wanting to make a page for a totally unrelated game just because Mario was in it for a little.--Luigifan14 17:22, 5 August 2006 (EDT)

I think it works. The page would describe the Mario reference or cameo, including pictures etc. It wouldn't be about the game itself since the entire game isn't a Mario game. --Steve (talk) 18:07, 5 August 2006 (EDT)

There is a list of games Mario and co. made cameos in, I've been wondering should there be a list of characters who have made cameos in Mario games? -- Sir Grodus

Hey, Sir Grodus! Stumpers here. I think that's a great idea! Perhaps there could be an overall cameo article and links to it on every game with such a cameo in it? Or maybe we should just put individual bits of info on individual game pages? Any other suggestions, guys? -Stumpers

Referencing a Source and other issues[edit]

Hey everyone. I recently updated the Game Boy Advance section with more games that had been missing. Some of them had pages already, such as King of Swing and WarioWare #1, as an aside. Perhaps we should list out all of the games all the time for when someone gets around to making a page? For example, I just happened to notice that Yoshi's Topsy-Turvy wasn't on the list after I made the page. I don't think everyone would notice that, but that's just me.

More importantly, I got the new games from a list at [ Nintendo Data Base], a fan site. Should we source them or not? I guess it could be "common knowledge" for Mario buffs like us ;) so it might not matter. In any case, where should we site the site if we do? Should we take away my changes and use some official source? -Stumper

Tricky... but other than that, its cite, not site.HK

Game and Watch (Again)[edit]

The game and watches appear to be missing. Why? Apart from that, the list seems very short, and a short list of mario games needs a lot of work to become a complete list.

Yep. I agree. Sign comments. 3dhammer.gif 3D, ♪like mee!♪ 3dhammer.gif

Mario Kart Wii[edit]

The Mario Kart Wii article has already been deleted. There is no confirmation whatsoever about this game. It is only because someone thought that each Nintendo console system has already a Mario Kart game, so why not the Wii, too? It is, basically, fanon. I'd say, remove it from the list. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 14:17, 14 June 2007 (EDT)

Alright. NSMBW Mario and Yoshi Jumping Artwork.pngXzelionETC

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Isn't it said to be coming 2007? Or is it unofficial?  Caps Lock LORD 06:24, 17 June 2007 (EDT)

Apparently, all games that are unreleased are put at the "Upcoming" header, regardless when they are released. Only released games are put in their corresponding year. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 06:26, 17 June 2007 (EDT)
Yes, it is coming in 2007, but it hasn't been released yet. So it goes under upcoming. My Bloody Valentine

Release Dates[edit]

The list uses the U.S. release dates, but I don't think that this is a good idea. It causes chronological errors, plus there are readers who aren't from the USA. I think always the original date should be used, regardless of region, it's the only consistent way because there is no region where all games had been released. What do you think? --Grandy02 13:33, 30 August 2007 (EDT)

Yeah, we should use the date the game was released regardless of regions. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 14:30, 30 August 2007 (EDT)

Yep - we can even put multiple release dates based on region (although the first one listed should be the orinal release date regardless of region). -- Son of Suns

I think every game should be only mentioned once, it gets cluttered if every game appears up to four times (Japan, USA, Europe, Australia). Anyway, using the original release dates, is that a done deal? --Grandy02 15:15, 31 August 2007 (EDT)
Yep. We could put other release dates in parantheses next to the original date, if you want. -- Son of Suns
I noticed that a lot of other articles also still use the American release, for example the Yoshi article says that his first appearance took place in 1991, but it was actually already in 1990 in Japan. --Grandy02 12:53, 22 September 2007 (EDT)
Feel free to make the appropriate changes. Try to get as many release dates as possible though (as the Super Paper Mario article has done). -- Son of Suns

Someone rearranged games back to American dates (e.g. SMB3 in 1990 and SMW in 1991), though the site still tells that only the first release dates are used. I guess the user didn't read that sentence? --Grandy02 14:27, 17 April 2008 (EDT)

Other games[edit]

I found that, another list of all games with Mario on it. There are a lot of games in those that Mario just appeared in cameos, like the F1 Race or Alleway. Can be added to this list? [Source]

Release Dates for Games[edit]

Do we really need them? They're already on the article for the certain game (ex: Click Super Mario 64 and the release date is shown in the template) =\ C???

List is messed up[edit]

It seems that the list has been messed up by some users. The article still tells that all releases are the first releases regardless of region, but the opposite is the case. In a lot of cases, the North American release date is used. :-( --Grandy02 07:19, 14 September 2008 (EDT)

Yeah, and another thing about the dates that I had noticed from a while back, is that alot have them, and a lot don't. Should we keep adding until we're full, or simply remove the dates? In fact, I just saw somebody move Paper Mario from 2000 to 2001. This list needs some major fixing... Marcelagus (TCE)
I'd be happy to assist in fixing this list in anyway possible. --Palkia47 09:25, 14 September 2008 (EDT)

Are all those "Released on ..." needed? They were not even used consistently, and almost only referred to American dates. Anyway, I changed the page back to its former state (plus the new releases), as it should be (first release regardless of region). --Grandy02 10:02, 7 April 2009 (EDT)

There are some games that are completely in the wrong year or completely missing, for example Game & Watch Gallery 2 should be under 1998 not 1997, and Game Boy Gallery released in 1995 isn't even there.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by TheUltimateKoopa (talk).

What year is wrong? G&WG2 was first released in Japan in 1997, so it is listed under that year (but now also in 1998 since the GBC version was released then). The games are listed by original release date, regardless of region. One region isn't more important than the other ones. The original Game Boy Gallery isn't there because not any Mario character appears in it, Mario and his name were removed from the only Mario-related game, (Mario's) Cement Factory. Otherwise, simply add a game if it is missing. --Grandy02 16:21, 22 January 2010 (EST)
Sorry for the extremely late reply, but it's somewhat confusing, because the Game & Watch Gallery series (including the Game Boy Gallery) have different names in different countries. For example, Game & Watch Gallery 2 is known as Game Boy Gallery 2 in Japan, and Game Boy Gallery 3 in Australia. There was also a GWG2 in North America for the GB, AND GBC (known in Australia as Game Boy Gallery 2, AND Game Boy Gallery 3 respectively, I believe). It's REALLY confusing.--TheUltimateKoopa 17:42, 22 March 2010 (EDT)
OK, according to GameFAQs, the full Game Boy Gallery/Game & Watch Gallery series (1995-2002) goes like this:
Japan US Europe Australia
Never released Never released Game Boy Gallery (GB, 1995) Game Boy Gallery (GB, 1995)

Should this remain at the title is was recently moved to? I find it rather inaccurate, as the article doesn't only cover the main Mario series, but also other Mario-related series.--vellidragon 17:49, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

We cover all series, I agree with Vellidragon, this should be moved back to "List of Mario Games by Date". Marioguy1 (talk)

I'm confused now. "Moving back as per discussion on talk page"; if that moving reason refers to this discussion, my point was that the page shouldn't be at "...Mario series games..." (which was the title at the point I wrote my comment) as it doesn't only cover the Mario series (but also Super Smash Bros. etc.). I can see what may have caused the confusion, though, as it had apparently been moved somewhere else a while after I made that statement.--vellidragon 16:00, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

I think it should be moved to List of games by date.--Knife (talk) 20:29, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

List of Mario games by date is the same as List of Mario series games by date, so there would be no reason to move it to the other. List of games by date implies that it is a list of all games ever. I think it should be moved to List of Mario related games by date. A Link to the Present 16:37, 17 February 2011 (EST)

Cancelled games[edit]

Should cancelled games really be on here? A Link to the Present 15:55, 17 February 2011 (EST)

New games[edit]

Can anyone check and see if there are any new games?

Wrong Game[edit]

Wasn't it Donkey Kong, not Donkey Kong Jr, that was released for the Vic-20 in 1983? 08:15, 23 January 2016 (EST) (edited 12:51, 23 January 2016 (EST))

Do you mean 1983? Neither Donkey Kong nor Donkey Kong Jr. were released in '63. JLuigi.pngJ-Luigi (talk) 08:53, 23 January 2016 (EST)
Yes, that's what I meant. 12:51, 23 January 2016 (EST)

Also, was Donkey Kong 3 ever released for the NEC PC-8801? 12:51, 23 January 2016 (EST)

I don't know about for the Vic-20, but DKJr. was released in '83, while DK was in '81. I don't know about Donkey Kong 3, but someone else might. JLuigi.pngJ-Luigi (talk) 13:39, 23 January 2016 (EST)

Missing games[edit]

Hi. I'm a newer member and I have some games you're missing from the list of games by date. I would like to add them. Is it ok if I do so? Lord Falafel (talk) 09:23, May 30, 2019 (EDT)

You need to tell us which games you want to add before you can add them.--Mister Wu (talk) 18:35, May 30, 2019 (EDT)

Change layout[edit]

Since Porplemontage is probably never talking to me again, I'm just going to randomly put this idea in the discussion board. I think we should change the layout of this list to have it look like the other 2 game lists, meaning having the games in boxes. Or 1 giant box. If someone finds this message, be sure it's someone on the staff who replies to it or someone who's not and would still give out the right answer. Lord Falafel (talk) 21:53, October 25, 2019 (EDT)

The whole point of this list is to list all the games but in the order they were released, so I don't think boxes would really be necessary here. Reorganizing the order would just defeat the whole purpose of this page and eventually make a clone of the list of games. Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 22:53, October 25, 2019 (EDT)
Per OMF. This suggested change is completely unnecessary and would simply defeat the point of the list of games by date. TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 23:00, October 25, 2019 (EDT)

Ok. Cuz even if we made it look like the list of game appearances section on Mario's page, it'd be easier to add content. But I guess you're right about not cloning it. Lord Falafel (talk) 00:49, October 26, 2019 (EDT)

Specific date for each game[edit]

Question.svg This talk page or section has a conflict or a question that needs to be answered. Please try to help and resolve the issue by leaving a comment.

In my opinion we should also add day and month for each game. It would help making the list fulfil its purpose. SantiOzzy (talk)
