So we had the game that started it all, and the two games involved in the sequel controversy, but now we have the one that everyone remembers! Super Mario Bros. 3 was a phenomenal success for gamers living in the NES era, with the inclusion of such classic levels, power-ups, enemies, and some of the best 2D platforming you will ever find in gaming history! Can you bring Mario all the way to World 8 and rescue the princess again? You better hit that start button and find out!

This is a project done in conjunction with three other games as part of the Super Mario All-Stars Let’s Play. I had just finished Radiant Dawn at this point and wanted to take it easy before I got back into any major games, so I figured a run-through all of the classic NES Mario games was in order!

Princess Peach is having another one of her classic get-togethers, but when Bowser’s kids jump out of the cake, it’s no fun and games anymore. Mario gets his gear together and gives chase to those havoc-causing Koopa Kids, likely to once again find Bowser at the other end of the fishing line.

This game was actually pretty new at the time of me doing this project, but it was a Mario game, which naturally means I am a sucker for classic Mario platforming. Although one of the major draws of this game is the fact that you can participate in live 4-Player co-op, I set out to show that even the one-player has a beauty of its own! This was also another project that was affected by the computer crash of 2010, as this project was planned to release much earlier, but these problems were on the verge of being fixed when this project started coming around!

Mario has taken a trip to Dinosaur Land, but only to find out that his fair Princess Toadstool has been captured by Bowser once again. Not only that, but the Yoshis, a new species discovered by the portly plumber, are also being held captive by Bowser’s koopalings. It looks like Mario will have to save the day once more, in this whole new world!

This was the first “replay” project I did on my channel, as I had done some videos for the game at a prior date, but due to the bad (camcorder) quality of the project, with no commentary to boot, I decided to redo the project with a modern spin. The older videos are no longer available on my channel.

This being my all-time favorite video game (at least by nostalgia sake), I was more than delighted to play this game for my viewers. I don’t claim to be a master at the game, but I do love going back to this title every now and then to take a trip down memory lane. This project just felt like another amazing trip to me!
