I wouldn't want to live on Avenida de Super Mario Bros. Imagine having to write that down on all your paperwork. People would think you were conning them.

"Residents say they are glad that the streets will not be named after violent video game characters"

Yup, not the violent ones. Just an ex-hippie (flower power) Italian plumber who keeps tripping on shrooms. Or a rogue Santa's helper who slashes and breaks everything in sight in hopes of finding stuff (vandalism right there). Or an anthropomorphic hedgehog that's on speed and is addicted to chili dogs.

Yeah, good one there.

What's this talk about Mario's 25th birthday? Mario Bros was out in 1983 I believe. That featured both Mario and Luigi. Donkey Kong was out in 1984 I think, so Mario was out way before 1985.

Oops, I just did a bit more looking in, Donkey Kong was out in 1981, but Mario was called Jumpman then. It wasn't until 1983 that Mario Bros came out. So that 27 years, not 25.

I think it's the 'Super' Mario 25th Anniversary'.. which was, yeah, 1985. If it was the Mario 25th anniversary, yeah, that would have been two years ago.

It is silly, but not entirely unheard of.

Here in the UK, Derby named a street 'Lara Croft Way'

As a geek, I really like this! But I can't help but think that it would not be taken so seriously :

"A really tragic accident occured today at the corner of Space Invaders and Sonic the Hedgehog when an elderly woman got ran over by a car. The reckless driver then quickly escaped the scene towards Bionic Commande Boulevard".
