Remember playing Super Mario Bros. for the first time on the NES (a.k.a. "The Regular Nintendo")? How an expressionless plumber jumping around squishing mushrooms and punching bricks could blow every kid's mind is beyond me, but this is the genius of Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto. My reaction? "Wow - this is the greatest game ever!" But what makes Mario truly legendary is that I've said this many times over through the years, as Nintendo continually releases masterpieces on every platform. Mario has been an essential part of my life since childhood (still is) and is now a big part of my children's lives. What better way to show Mario's evolution from 8-bit sprite to his plump, rounded modern-day form than a classic Warp Pipe?
