Super Mario Bros. is one of gaming’s classic icons, a figurehead that has been prominent throughout the console and handheld genrations. Almost any player, regardless of age, can tell you about a time spent in his or her childhood playing a title that featured the plump little plumber.
That’s what Super Mario Bros. has become, a rite of passage. The first stepping stone into the world of video-games that by now has consumed us all. I have great memories of playing the original ‘Super Mario Bros.’ on an Nintendo Entertainment System and playing newer version of those games is still fun. In the sense it brings back nostalgia and familiarity.
