I grew up playing games like Super Mario 64, Banjo Kazooie, Rocket Robot on Wheels, Spyro the Dragon, and Croc. These games primarily involve walking around and collecting shiny things while killing bad guys. They are all cartoonish in nature.

Ive been out of the new gaming scene for a decade and some change but do they still make these games?

It seems that if a game is more innocent or child-targeted, it is a Mario game, but to me, Mario is old hat.
