Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter.

Game series that nail a play style several times over tend to earn a long-standing fondness from their admirers. Fresh debuts and experiences are important, but having a gaming equivalent of reliable comfort food definitely doesn't hurt.

For me, 2D Mario games comprise my comfort series. Aside from the handheld entries of the New Super Mario Bros. series, I can play them dozens of times and still have fun even after a game's wealth of secrets is depleted. I think of the series as the ideal feel for platforming – even with great entries to the genre like Super Meat Boy and Rayman Legends, the play style found in Mario games still has my favorite "feel" to them within the genre.

What about you? Which series feels like the trustworthy pal you can always head to for a few great hours? Share your mostly-unwavering favorites with us, right after you check this week's Japanese hardware sales after the break!
