Okay, so let me talk about Mario for a minute here. I realize there's a difference between the American and Japanese understanding of the character and there always has been, but Mario was originally presented as a blue collar worker. 1/?
Yes, there's the plumber thing, but he was also a construction worker in Wrecking Crew and I guess a carpenter in Donkey Kong. Very blue collar. He started making cameos in other games, but it was like, a boxing ref. 2/?
It's the original Mario Bros. that cast him as a plumber but I guess he was an Evil Animal Trainer in Donkey Kong Jr.? I dunno if Animal Trainer is as "salt of the earth" as being a construction worker, but it's no office job. 3/?

Each year the video game industry descends on LA for #E3 (The Electronic Entertainment Expo) to showcase the latest and greatest in interactive entertainment. And each year I do a statistical breakdown of the trends in gameplay mechanics. 2019 is my 5th year doing this analysis.
It’s no secret the gaming industry is laser focused on creating experiences that center violent combat. But engaging with a gameworld from behind the barrel of a gun or blade of a sword is extremely limiting. This is why my stats sort titles into combat and non-combat categories.
#E32019 started with the Electronic Arts press event. #EA only showcased 6 games. 50% of those were combat focused. Of the other 3 titles, 2 were annual sports franchise updates and 1 was a new DLC for the Sims 4. (I didn’t include Anthem because no footage was shown onstage).
