Digital Crack for the whole familyThe Nintendo family of characters still holds great appeal for me, nearly 25 years after Donkey Kong and Mario first appeared in the arcade.

They are, in a way, as important a group of fictional characters as Superman, Sherlock Holmes, Tarzan, or anything in Tolkien or Star Wars, even if they have little depth. How many hours have I, my friends, my family, and now my kids spent with them in their various adventures?

We've watched them grow, seen new characters come and old ones go. There was even a really crappy movie no one (including me) saw.
