The first time I played Super Mario Brothers 3, I was at my cousin's house. He sat beside me and watched as I marveled at things like an actual intro screen and a world map. I was hooked, and I hadn't even actually played the damned thing yet.
Soon enough, I was playing, and loving it. I got the mushroom soon enough, then managed to unlock another, different powerup - one I hadn't seen before.
|I am a leaf on the wind...|
"Ooh!" my cousin said, barely able to contain his enthusiasm, "get running really fast and then jump."
Mario would never be the same.
|Watch how I soar...|
