Mario Mario Is 25-Years Old

14 September 2010 | 3 Comments » | iTZKooPA

Forgive me. I know that LoreHound.com is, for all intents and purposes, an MMOG site, but this is Jumpman Mario we’re talking about. Not only is Mario and Shigeru Miyamoto responsible for hooking me on video games once and for all, but the duo basically saved the home video game industry as we know it. If it wasn’t for Nintendo, the NES, Mario and Shigeru Miyamoto (with help from other friends) the industry would have likely been set back 10 years by the video game crash of 1983.

Hats off to Mario and all his contributions to gamedom.

Sure, he’s packed one a few pounds (too many mushrooms), can’t jump as high (dining on flowers will do that) and has only made more enemies as time has progressed (Donkey Kong, Bowser, Wario), but damn if he doesn’t look good.  Not only does he dress better, but he has managed to dramatically increase his pixel count!

Nintendo has announced a “reproduction” of Super Mario All-Stars to commemorate the plumber’s anniversary.  Unfortunately, there’s no word on a release outside of Japan of the Super Mario Anniversary Collection Pack.  In the meantime, head over to Nintendo’s commemorative website to brush up on your Mario knowledge and nostalgia.

Watching the video makes me realize that I need to get my faceship to Bowser’s castle in Super Mario Galaxy 2. Also, I’m freaking old.

Hey Google, where’s the Google level for Mario?
