I remember when my dad used to bring me bootleg consoles that would always include Galaga and the original Super Mario Bros. Those were fun for a short while.

When I owned a Wii for a brief period of time (admittedly I had a really hard time getting adjusted to its controls), I was pretty much playing Super Mario Galaxy nonstop, even though my television was old and only showed black and white by that point.

Yeah, I actually never really "grew up" with Mario on things like Nintendo consoles. I actually usually played flash games about him because all I really had was a Windows XP. I got introduced to Mario through some weird flash game that looked like NSMB, and I actually forgot what it was called. I also played a lot of Super Mario 63, it was pretty enjoyable back then. The first official Mario game I played was Mario Kart Wii, and it all changed after that. No more flash games.

My first official Mario Game was NSMBWii I believe (I had played flash games before, though). It was a fun thing to do with my bro on occasions (although he wanted to play it more often than I did). But ja, I knew what the hell a Merio was but I had never had an official Mario game until I got mah Wii in 2007 or 2006.

Possibly one of the best things about the Mario series is its music. Games like Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, and Super Mario World are music to my ears.

And don't even get me started on the remixes.

Blasphemy! How dare you both! My respect for y'all just went down a major amount.

Also, Valterri, while AM2R's soundtrack is not perfect, how can you say that it's organic, atmospheric tracks should have sounded more like your electronic beep-boops? M2/AM2R takes place on a world dominated by nature, so why in the heck do you use so many artificial-sounding instruments for your tracks?

What about the battle theme against Dark Bowser? That's, like, one of the best compositions the Mario series has ever seen.

Eh.... in my honest opinion, it's really good, but it's not the best the series has to offer.

Thanks. I'm glad we have another Mario music aficionado! :D

Same. I loved the story of BIS as a whole. I played PiT when I got it in gamefly, and I got pretty far too, but I personally liked the story of BIS better.

That's the only Mario Kart game I never played surprisingly. Samething goes to Mario Kart 7 actually. All the others I played it and they're fun.

Super Mario 63. But I played NSMBDS and SM64DS. Those games were the best.

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

I, personally, play on emulators nowadays. I remember my first ever games being "Super Mario 64", "Mario Kart 64", and "New Super Mario Bros. Wii".

When I was younger, like 4 or 5, I used to ask why my dad was named "Mario" and he told me that he saved the princess from a big turtle dragon. I never understood that until I got a Wii in 2010 with NSMBWii and the "Super Mario Galaxy Official Orchestra" CD Could sell that on eBay... :lol: and played through the game. It took me almost four months to beat and a couple times to finish the final battle because for three times, my mom turned off my electricity because I needed to go somewhere! After the credits, My face was full of tears and there was a World 9 that took me a month to beat. So, I was a master at Mario, obsessed with it, and drew maps on grid paper that I kept and lost. Could have made these in SMBX now
Then some time later in middle school, I met a new friend who was obsessed with Nintendo and Zelda. My cousin offered me Twilight Princess because he had it for years and never played it and I tried it out. The game was so good, that I fell in love with Zelda and wanted to know more about it. This made me realize to not just like Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon, but try new things. Now I love those and Metroid, Kirby, Smash Bros, Wii games like Wii Sports, Wii Play, etc., and now in my freshman year of High School, other franchises outside Nintendo!

Oh and speaking of Mario, who loves this idiot, SMG4?
