The '''''Yoshi'' video game series''' is set of popular video games that spawn from the ''[[Super Mario series]]''. The first game in the series can be considered arguable, though if you consider platformers then most will credit ''Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island'' as the first, though multiple other spinoff games that starred the green dinosaur [[Yoshi]] have appeared on the [[SNES]], [[NES]], and [[Game Boy]].
