Super Mario Bros. NES was my very first game I ever played. Ever since then I have been hooked!

I have all 3 SMB cartridges for the NES: Mario, Mario/Duck Hunt, and Mario/Duck/Hunt/World Class Track Meet. I have to buy every Super Mario Bros. 1 that I see. It's a problem. I have the Deluxe version for Game Boy Color, and I STILL bought it on the Wii's Virtual Console! I think I just need the GBA re-release. Game is soooo damn good.

One of my professors says he has the same problem with the DreamCast. If he sees one at a yard sale or a thrift store for $5 or $10, he HAS to buy it. He says he has over 10 working DreamCasts now.

If he wasn't, there wouldn't be a need for these wonderful princess rescuing games...

I remember visiting my dad in Texas that summer, playing Super Mario Bros and Duck Hunt like mad.
