    1. Mario is a tool for saving this bitch that many times… ALMOST as bad as Link…

    5. Kinda funny. When I was a kid this repetitive, monotonous gameplay would keep kids occupied for hours day after day. Now days, someone may play with it a bit for nostalgia, but that’s about it.

    6. Donkey Kong is the shit. Number one game I used to play right after Mario.

      @Tyger42: True.

    7. @Stolid,

      it’s kind of pedantic of me to mention, but in this game, that familiar character wasn’t yet named Mario, but was in fact Jumpman, and he is rescuing either “lady” or Pauline, not the princess he rescues in later series.

      So yes, “Mario” is seriously enabling the Princesses’ abduction-rescue fetish, but neither of those characters are in this game.

      Aargh! Thank you wikipedia for turning me into a jerk!

      I am now inclined to agree with the pedantic and jerk portion of your post (strictly as a matter of argument; no offense.)

      As many a prequel has shown, a back-filled story often contradicts and/or wholly renounces the original storyline, as if it was originally intended to be oblique. So Wikipedia be damned!! She had a plan all along! His unwitting participation in her shenaniganry makes him a tool. If he knowingly participated, he’s a fucking idiot… unless he was getting royalties from Nintendo, which is highly suspect, and supremely doubtful, but then I’d have to say good job playa’!! We all played along anyway so maybe we are all as guilty as he… I never got any royalty checks… I’d probably have bought a SuperNES if I had..

    9. In other words, Lady/Pauline is the tool?

    10. I think just to throw everyone for a fucking loop, Nintendo’s next Mario game should be that Mario is the one captured, and Princess Peach has to rescue his sorry ass.

      Or slight variation on that, same scenario, but she can’t come rescue Mario cause he told the bitch to stay in the kitchen.

    12. I just got one thing to say: “Billy Mitchell is a douche bag”

    13. @Stolid: I know! I hate those little douches that drop by to tell you how you are “wrong” and then felt compelled to do the exact same thing! Seriously, I read that wiki entry on a nostalgia dive less than a month ago or I’d never’ve known that (touching on the other great pedantry meme “an ignorant is someone who doesn’t know what I just learned”).

      That said, I think your basic premise is also a little harsh. You don’t have to think about the Mario-verse as a continuous timeline where the princess gets captured several hundred times and Mario rescues her each time. You can think of it as several retellings of the same tale with better graphics and expanded game universe. Nintendo clearly thinks that way. Why would they jeopardize their cash cow by drastically changing the overall premise of the franchize?

      Yes, I see we agree on something.. I actually always liked to think of se/prequels as Lion King 1 1/2.. the telling of the same story from a different point of view.. of course the film/game/music/auto/etc industries love it too… in retrospect, I was being factitious.. that was the plan all along..

      Of course. I didn’t expect you were being that serious about something so trivial. Still, video game continuity is, if not something to be taken seriously, at least worth a forum discussion on a time-waster website.

      Mario has a little trouble being the same story from many points of view, given that some of the major characters in the story change. Still, if you ignore King Koopa becoming Donkey Kong or Bowser or Wario every once in a while, it’s the same basic game, just with different levels and special abilities.

    16. The only appearance of Mario that is non-gay.
