Great Game Intros: Super Mario 64

Voxel Arcade: We have featured a lot of introduction sequences for all kinds of games and for all kinds of reasons here in the arcade. However, Super Mario 64 has its intro sequence included for perhaps the most important reason yet.

It wasnt just an intro to a game, but an intro to a new generation of gaming, one that we are essentially still in today. (Retro, Super Mario 64)

Only mario game that began without music, and for good reason. The sounds of chirping birds, rushing water, mario's footsteps and absolutely nothing else. It was a defining moment in gaming, for most people it was their first time stepping foot into a fully realized world that just felt alive. Music would of just distracted from that incredible moment. This was a time when nintendo knew subtlety, and it shows. Same with Ocarina of Time, the title screen for that game began with a somber wistful tune instead of an epic one. I think they just really knew they had something special with both games.
