That whole Iwata Asks interview was really interesting, not just the mushrooms/overalls part. It provides a lot of insight into Mario games in general!

Very interesting interview :D The history of Mario uncovered.

agreed, i thoroughly enjoyed his interview, the guy had just the right questions

they still don't explain why they chose a mushroom... they totally dodged the question!!!! they explained how the first part of SMB was designed but not why a mushroom was the chosen symbol of growth. Which leads me to continue to assume it is somehow drug related.

Probably because Miyamoto doesn't want to admit he was on shrooms back in the day. He might still be on them to this day. Lol.

agree with suunny, Nintendo has to seem family friendly so they dont want to admit to dabbling with shrooms...but i'll admit it.

the natural way of gaming? really?

almost every action game in existence since than has borrowed some ideas from mario games in some way.

I think, thats why you get Bigger (high) and break thru the ceilings and do all of the amzing things mario do while he is big (high) and when he stomp and touch a baddy gets downgraded (not high anymore) and the like...

but men, i think they just got high and start talking about it and LOL everywhere, LOL
