Howe... well, this thread isn't simply "who had the highest peak", so I'd certainly expect he compares pretty well to Mario. Certainly not so much that one would dismiss the comparison out of hand.

All of those other players (including Mario) have 1980s-inflated numbers so I'm not inclined to take "they scored more points" to mean much.
