Mario + Sonic an the X-Games by SuperAshBro Mario + Sonic an the X-Games by SuperAshBro
A picture of video games two biggest icons from me was inevitable at some point, especially since this picture coincides with the release of "Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympics".

Anyway, it's all well and good having everyone's favourite plumber and hedgehog united in one game once again, but once again it isn't the crossover platform game that the old school fans want, and given the popularity of the "Olympics" series that probably won't change in the future.

However, there are plenty of other multiple sports events that Sega and Nintendo could put their beloved mascots in - why not the X-Games? It would be awesome, just imagine it: Mario, Sonic, their friends and foes competing against each other on skateboards, rollerblades and BMXs. The gameplay would be similar to the Tony Hawks series (those games can almost be classified as platformers on wheels), with missions, races and competitions to be found in each level. Naturally (well in my mind anyway), the levels/parks would be less realistic (i.e. generic) than the settings for the Olympic tites, instead they'd all be throwbacks to the many games that Mario & Sonic have starred in (an Angel Island/Gusty Garden Galaxy skate park? Hell yeah!). If it's the closest we'll ever get to a Mario/Sonic platform game, then I hope Sega and Nintendo are already planning this...

Oh, um, as for the picture itself... I wanted to be edgy/ hip/extreme/etc.

EDIT/UPDATE - I'd like to thank all the people who've :+fav:ed this picture, it seems to be really popular :). I would like to know what people think of the actual idea of a Mario & Sonic extreme sports game - other ideas are welcome!

I think the idea of a Mario and Sonic extreme spoets games would be excellent! When I heard your suggestion for a skateboarding minigame I was on the train! Don't get me wrong, the Olmpic games have their positives but the X games seem more eventful

The initial idea is to have a Mario & Sonic game that actually feels like a platform game without straying too far away from the "Sports" side of things. Also, Rule of Cool.

Thanks for commenting!

That would be awesome! I have Tony Hawk's Underground 2.

Sega and Nintendo should hire the Neversoft developers who worked on the old Tony Hawks games. They were practically platform games after all.

Nintendo is a large corporation, with several employees. Someone related to the concept department ought to see something like this!
