PBS recently presented an interesting video on the Super Mario franchise and its state as an art form. According to the network, "Super Mario Bros. is the world's greatest piece of surrealist art."
Mario is the worlds greatest piece of art. Which is not surprising at all considering that its a Nintendo exclusive franchise. Nintendo has proven that for as long as Nintendo has been around, which is a very very long time. The only other game that can compete with Mario on that regard is The Legend of Zelda franchise. Another Nintendo AAA exclusive franchise that has been dominating its genre since the very beginning. Both of Mario and Zelda franchise have played a major role in why Nintendo is the number 1 gaming company today. People worldwide can easily spot beautiful art work when they see it. Rated E For Everyone
I love this person <3
you should get reggis job ...unless... you are reggie :l :o :0 :O xO
I think mario is a pretty cool guy. Eh kills goombas and doesn't afraid of anything.
No. It's a good game though.
I honestly think Halo is the best work of art. If it weren't for halo franchises like Call of duty, Quake, Doom, and battlefield wouldn't exist. Halo really paved the way for first person shooters, therefore Halo is an icon. the only reason anyone even knows who "Mario" is is because of ron jeremy.
Quake and Doom came first
They are talking about not only in terms of surrealism, but influence of the idea for surrealism in future video games. Halo might have influenced the FPS genre, but not close enough when compared to how the COD series has influenced many other genres outside the FPS. Prime example is perk system, COD made it popular (probably introduced it too), now many MP modes have perks.
Nintendo police alert- Hey! Mario doesn't "spit" fire!
And he doesn't eat the flower, he touches it.
There needs to be a Troll King contest. Edit: I know it would be horrible, but sometimes they're genuinely funny due to the sheer absurdity of their statements.
sorry but that is for HR Giger!!
