The latest Did You Know Gaming video looks at what could have been, what almost was, and why it is the way it is in the Mario universe.

The video looks at the doomed from the beginning CD-i games starring Mario, as well as a Mario Volleyball title from the makers of Super Mario Strikers that was deemed to violent for Nintendo's standards.
