Some of my favourite memories of Mario are the ones I'm still making to this day. It's just me, Luigi in The Prancer tricked out with button wheels, and a Bowser kite for gliding support. Oh yeah, and 5 of my closest friends - the ones I haven't actually met yet.
Growing up mostly on a diet of JRPGs, my gaming history has primarily been in single player mode. Nintendo couch co-op wasn't really a thing I knew until I got my Nintendo 64. Even then, I spent just a few matches battling my brother and sister in Smash Bros. Most of my N64 time was spent exploring Hyrule in Ocarina of Time and Clock Town in Majora's Mask.
