Most anticipated Mario ever. So much so that I made and sewed a "raccoon tail" onto a pair of pants and wore it to school for days. Watching the commercial still gives me chills.

Back in the good ol' days. When controllers only had 5 buttons.

@clevechester Simpler controllers, harder games, and it was challenging to find a "strategy guide" (cheat book) back then. You actually had to WORK and maybe be frustrated to beat a game.

My gamer phase was very short and entirely played on that system. Good times.

@slor Clame for proof that I was one of the first in line. Didn't care about the movie, just wanted to see the final 10 minutes.

@thestraub I remember accidentally finding my first whistle and being thoroughly upset that when I finally used it I skipped Giant Land - the only world I WANTED to see!
miguelito I had one box of that cereal. ONE box was plenty! Kinda wish I had kept the box....
eric I was wondering if anyone saw the background I put up! Thx!
malphrus Medium-stocky usually sums it up. Paraphernalia you say? Intrigued I am! Tell me more!

And if it didn't work, just blow on it and jiggle it a little bit. It still baffles me that everyone instinctually knew to do this.

ElDuQue says:
As a side note, as I re-proofread my caption I love that the word "Mario" is a generic in game circles. "Ey - you played that new Mario?" "Man that Mario 8-2 is a pain" There's no need to mention the word "game" - it's just implied. Kind of like the word "Nintendo" back in the 80's and 90's - it universally meant "video game".

This is really super. I used to spend countless hours playing this game. I took my 1st job to save up for it.

Wow So many thoughts. Well done. I really like this

malphrus says:
@ElDuQue just the right size... you coming to the stash bash?
it is probably not something you'd wear everyday, but it is worth a chuckle or two.

Old school meets new school... also I think having a moustache while playing mario automatically improves your skills.

ElDuQue says:
@malphrus There's a chance I'll be at the bash, but at this point it ALL depends on the twins and how much tenderizing of the Wife they're doing at that point.

malphrus says:
@ElDuQue gotcha.
well, next time you make it to nashville, whenever that may be, you've got an NES surprise waiting for you.
