Today’s Gamers Are Having A Little Trouble With Super Mario World, Too

By Stephen Totilo

It was recently established that the 2013 gamer is perplexed by some parts of 1994′s Super Metroid. The 2013 gamer is having some issues with 1990′s Super Mario World, too.

We can see these struggles on the Nintendo Wii U’s Miiverse, a community accessible primarily through Nintendo’s new console. The Miiverse enables gamers to take screenshots of what they’re playing on the Wii U and then ask other system owners for help. (Culture, Super Mario World, Super Metroid, Wii U)

I dont own a wii u yet but seems like a small issue to complain about but then again everyone is different.

I don't think anyone has said it was an issue with the WiiU, it's more of a commentary on how games have changed and newer players have trouble completing classic games.

I think it's rather cool that there's a system built right into the console to ask for help from other players though. I don't know how fast the question is sent out to other players, but if it's quick, it's really cool.

Thats what I noticed. Funny thing is my little brother kicks my but on most fps games but we play old classic games like pacman, mario, tetris or donkey kong jr and I always beat him lol. Those old classics are like cryptal night to these new breeds of clark kents lol.

it's instant posts. like facebook, or n4g. even the screenshots are instant. it's a really great feature. and an easy way to gain new friends and discuss the games we love with strangers.

Maybe the children of today are not as intelligent as we were ?

I'd like to think that isn't the case, but they've all grown up on easy mode everything and everything being tweaked and catered to their liking and preference that I just don't think they are prepared to be challenged like we were at games.

I don't remember too many play sessions as a kid were me and friends actually finished or beat a game.

We would play for 1-3 hours..get far or as far as we could until dying wasn't fun anymore...then switch to a new game with a new challenge and try it all over again.

I like that games aren't as difficult now, but we need to stop making games less difficult for the 1-3% of gamers who are just too stupid to understand anything.

I know that when you post a message it goes strait to the nintendo severs, but then for someone to answer it has to randomly pop up on somebodies screen. I don't know if that part is immediate.

behold, the Wii U

All i can say is Lol.I havent played this game since i was 12 but i could do better than these scrubs.
Blackdeath_663  +   877d ago
it speaks volumes about nintendo's player base. i can see why third party devs would shy away from selling their games to an audience who struggle with beating super mario. its sad really to compare this to the nintendo which was famed for having such amazing RPG experiences.

EDIT: this is the full picture i couldn't view the other one properly for some reason http://img.gawkerassets.com...

hahaha really? good god, it's amazing how easy people can open their mouths to speak pure nonsense just to complain about Nintendo
_QQ_  +   877d ago
and what player base do you come from noob?
GotHDGame  +   877d ago
What are you talking about? Some classic games are much harder than today's "hardcore games". Super Mario World, is a fun game, but can be down right frustrating at times. On Wii U, though you can cheat and save anywhere in the game, and that makes the game a little easier.
jcnba28  +   877d ago
Wow you're so cool, I wanna be just like you when I grow up.
exfatal  +   877d ago
dont u mean grow little? as in shave off like 10years off ur current age?

Keeping on topic though, God me and my friend recently played this game, only truly hard stages are the special stages after star world.

idk who said mario was a easy game.. that sh!t be tuff sometimes...
grailly  +   877d ago
why are you getting disagrees? mario games are tough, (maybe not the recent ones) , I never was able to finish the gameboy mario as a kid.
BeZdaBest  +   877d ago
probably some fanboys... who knows.. i for one thought nsmbu had SOME tuff stages..
exfatal  +   877d ago
oh man dont get me started on super mario world 3. the final stages getting to bowser was a nightmare...
--Onilink--  +   877d ago
yeah... NSMBU had some infuriatingly difficult stages later on. And NSLU seems to be aiming for thougher stages
Kamikaze135  +   877d ago
Yeah, it can be....especially if you want to get 100%
ziggurcat  +   877d ago
it's pretty sad if gamers today are having trouble with super mario world...
-GametimeUK-  +   877d ago
Some people are stuck in the forest of illusion. That world requires you to use a secret exit, otherwise you get stuck there. It's understandable that someone could have problems there.

I breezed through this when I was 8, what the hell?
ZidaneNL  +   877d ago
Having trouble with Super Mario Bros. 3 is something I might understand, but Super Mario World is one of the easier Mario games. Seriously, I can pop that game in right now, go to Star Road and complete it in under an hour.
zerocrossing  +   877d ago
Exactly. I don't mind admitting I could never finish the original NES Super Mario Bro's cause that game genuinely was tough, but Super Mario World is a walk in the park by comparison.
Dasteru  +   877d ago
Funny Super Mario World can be beat in about 15mins if you know how. Not hard at all.
Ol_G  +   877d ago
It only proves that gamers nowadays are a bunch of noobs that only know COD and Fifa.
It's a shame really but we saw this coming the past years games getting shorter fps games using health regen Rpg's automatically heal you after battle different gamemodes than the japanese players i could go on .
We should be ashamed with ourselves letting or kids grow up like this
zerocrossing  +   877d ago
This is what happens when games stop being challenging yet fun and rewarding in favour of being linear events where any sense of challenge is dropped due to fear of breaking player immersion through countless deaths the player is supposed to learn from, it just breeds a generation of incompetent morons who need a helping hand to make progress.
BeZdaBest  +   877d ago
welcome to the "power generation"
PSVita_FTW  +   877d ago
how can anyone struggle playing super metroid and super mario world?
Dj7FairyTail  +   877d ago
Super Metroid does cause struggling
it not hard but it does make you scratch your head from time to time/
GenericNameHere  +   877d ago
I can understand getting lost in Super Metroid since you gotta keep backtracking to get what you need/ where you need to go, but SMW?? SUPER MARIO WORLD?????!!!!!! How do you even get lost in that game? For goodness gracious man...
Snookies12  +   877d ago
Some parts are a little tough on SMW, but it's so freaking easy to get lives on there... The only way I could see them getting stuck is if they're trying to do the Star world things lol.
-GametimeUK-  +   877d ago
One of the levels requires you to use a secret exit to advance to the next world. Hitting the end of the level just to have the path open back on yourself in a circle could be confusing for first time players.
BATRA  +   877d ago
people want the easy way out these days they do not no how to work hard in a game
jcnba28  +   877d ago
The Lost Levels is not an easy Mario game.
JsonHenry  +   877d ago
The lost levels... man some of of those were tough.

Kids there day.
