Mario gets all the hype and credit. His name is on many of Nintendo's best-selling games, he gets to star in the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games; he's the big shot.

Yet Luigi is the favourite of some, including this writer. Perhaps it's his higher jump, the fact he's not carrying as much excess weight, or that he's less of an unbearably efficient hero and actually flawed. After all, wouldn't we all get scared if we saw a ghost?

Luigi is the topic of the latest episode of Did You Know Gaming?, so if you're a fan on the green one and enjoy trivia, it's well worth a watch.

It's still the decade of Luigi as far as we're concerned; the year Nintendo gave him wasn't enough.
