http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mario_&_Sonic_at_the_Olympic_Games

I've been waiting my whole life for this! Will I get it? Naw I hate sports games and I hate things made to support events. But it's a game starring Mario and Sonic!

...finally!
"Mario and Sonic have been respectful rivals since the early days of video games," says Shigeru Miyamoto, Senior Managing Director and General Manager, Entertainment Analysis and Development Division, Nintendo Co., Ltd.. "In fact, for a long time they have been discussing the possibility of one day competing against each other. Now that they have been given the perfect opportunity to meet at the Olympic Games, we may finally learn who is actually faster, Mario or Sonic?"

Call me when there's a third team composed of 'failed' platforming Mascots like Bonk , Crash Bandicoot etc.

And the Olympics as they exist in reality is a pretty shitty ground for competition for Mario and Sonic. All the events are pretty much gimmes for one group or another. Sonic wins all the dashes... Yoshi takes shotput, Mario and Luigi win all Gymnastics Events and possibily pairs events. And are power-ups allowed? Or will sneaking past power-ups be the real life equivalent of sneaking 'roids?

If there were a videogame mascot Olympics there'd be alot more bossrush modes, Freestyle stuff smashing and for sure something involving firebreathing reptilian monster... Holy shit, it'd be the Tri-Wizard Tournament.(tm)

I'd be a lot more excited about that if they were released for Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis (and perhaps DOS).
