look up any word, like b4nny:
The exorbitant price that often accompanies first-party/highly recognized video games, named after Mario, the Nintendo character and mascot.
That reseller wanted $20 for Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt just because it has Mario in it, damn that mario tax.

Everyone must succumb to the mario tax now, every collector must suffer.
