Super Mario Brothers was the game that got me interested in game development. It was the game that came with our NES console and I played it like crazy. For the first week or so I couldn’t get anywhere in the game. When my dad finally beat King Koopa in the first castle I thought that was the game! But nope, just the first world. It’s wonderful how different many of the worlds even in the first Super Mario Bros. looked. Those white trees always filled my mind with wonder and the huge mushroom levels were super sick. Talking to few of my younger students has also confirmed that even kids today know the classic Super Mario Brothers. It’s a wonderful world we live in.
