Who was an instant fan of Mario when Nintendo came out at the brink of the 1990s?
Mario was HUGE when I was in my kindergarten years, and it still remains an awesome video game, in my opinion, because of its simplistic boards and levels. Games nowadays have detailed plots and many buttons to play with--Nintendo was as simple as it gets with the basic controller. Who wouldn't fall in love with Mario then?
I was definitely in love as a five-year-old. I would eat grilled cheese or mac-and-cheese and play this game for hours. I even got a free t-shirt, courtesy of a fruit snack box, of a Mario t-shirt that I was devastated to part with when I was too big to wear it. I was so angry at my little brother for getting the hand-me-down.
Anyway, the point of my mini-ramble is that I found this video on YouTube where someone beats Mario in five minutes. It's RIDICULOUS to watch, especially if it took you a long time to beat the game when you were younger. Let me know what you think of this.
Do you think this guy sat down and did this all in one sitting (the taping of this video) or do you think each level was taped by itself and then everything was pieced together?
This is wild. You must see it if you consider yourself a fan of Mario. It's hilarious, and it makes me nervous (that he's going to die every time, because I would) and a bit frustrated (because he puts my skills to shame).
