How Super Mario Helped Shape My Childhood

New Gamer Nation writes: "Neil was about three when his family got their first Nintendo console. It was mostly for his older brother, who, unlike him, actually had the motor skills to operate a controller. However, though his mother may be loath to admit it, Neil thought his parents also wanted it a good bit. His mother was something of an Atari whiz at the time, having blacked out at least three games, Missile Command being her proudest. His father would play, too, but was apparently lacking in any notable skill." (Retro, Super Mario Bros.)
