Despite constant sequels and updates, nothing beats the original. Mario had other games before this, but this is the first real Super Mario. Everyone knows the point of the game, it's been copied so many times since being released. You must jump on turtles, goombas etc, find mushrooms and fire flowers, and eventually make your way to King Koopa. Although many claim that the sequels are better games, I personally think this is the best of the series. Simple action, catchy music, and still pretty good graphics keep this one a winner.
Super Mario Bros. is still one of the best games ever. The game has a strange concept and the graphics aren't nearly as good as anything today, but it's a classic. It's a challenging game, with famous Mario and his brother Luigi, that will never be forgotten.
Super Mario Bros. is a game I remember very fondly. It's the one that
started the whole home-video-game mania, and perhaps it is best remembered
for this historical aspect. But it has such a special place in my heart for
a much simpler reason: It was SO MUCH FUN! Flying turtles, angry mushrooms,
flashing question marks, piranha plants, twirling fireball sticks, fire
flowers...and there are days when I can't get the soundtrack out of my head!
The game is quite tricky in places (I've never beaten it myself, though I
watched as someone else did--I was curious as to what the actual Princess
looked like! I was much better at its equally delightful partner, Duck
Hunt), but it always retained that sense of challenge, excitement, and
fantastic charm. My mother even became addicted to it!
Unfortunately, the video game world moves very fast and tends to forget previous projects. When a new, slicker system comes out, the older model is promptly deleted--not just pushed to the background, but actually DELETED, so that you can't find a new cartridge or machine when your old one wears out and starts flashing blue on the TV screen. I think it's very sad that Nintendo and other companies forget the value of basic block graphics, simple controls, and a great game. Still, Mario and Luigi have earned their place in history. No matter what comes and goes, they will always be the ultimate video game icons.
It's a great game! Prior to the game's and the system it was for which was the NES, the home video game system industry was in a funk. The industry crashed in 1983, and it seemed dead completely. That was until Nintendo released this game. This is one of my all time faves to play! I never get tired of playing this game, even though I've beaten it quite a few times. LONG LIVE MARIO, AND LUIGI!!!
I will not say that I did not love video games before I played the first and
the original Super Mario Brothers, but I slowly but surely became a Video
Game fanatic after I was first introduced to the Super Mario Brothers. In
this game, Mario and his brother Luigi are New York City plumbers who go
into the magical Mushroom Kingdom to rescue Princess Toadstool from the evil
clutches of King Koopa. And thus you have to go trough the magical Mushroom
Kingdom and a wonderful adventure ensues.
In this game there are 8 levels and four parts to each level. Some of the levels take place under water others take place in tree tops. Sometimes distant cannons shoot at you, other times (in end levels mostly) flames go around in a circle trying to eliminate you. There are all kinds of different enemies, from the Goombas to the Koopa Troopas, this is an incredible. There are also dungeons where you are attempting to rescue the Princess Toadstool.
This game is one of the coolest of all time. When I first played this game I could not believe anything like this existed. I had played plenty of arcade games before but the Nintendo System was new and I had never seen anything like it and it was awesome. I always had to have the fireball, if I didn't have that a part of me felt useless on this game, because I could be squashed by almost anything. It took me quite awhile to actually beat the game, but I had been playing it since I was 5. And this was the beginning of the whole Super Mario and Nintendo empire, which has now spanned the world almost, and this game remains a household name today.
At first naturally this was an incredibly hard game, but not it is a breeze. At one point I thought this was one of the most difficult games I have ever played, and almost everyone in my family was playing this game, not to mention a number of other video games, but this was the first. I loved the sequels as well, particularly Super Mario 3. But I will never forget playing Super Mario Brothers for the first time, and that game is better than a lot of this stuff today. This is the original, and this is still one of the best.
Super Mario was REALLY an excellent game. It didn't really matter how primitive it was, it was pure fun. I've been playing it since I was young and I really got a kick out of it. But alas, I have no more NES, so I play Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64. But still the original is one of the best.
Super Mario Bros. is one of the most famous video games of all time!
The characters, the jumping, the power-ups, and the sure thrill of
adventure makes this entire series a fun non-stop playing time! Below
is a brief look how I think the game is!
Game Play: The game play is very good. There is really basic controls here and is easy to perform. Novice gamers should have a good time here!
Graphics: The graphics are wonderful. The backgrounds are really beautiful!
Difficulty: The game is easy but as it goes on you''s find out that it will become more difficult!
Music: The music is great! Just fantastic catchy tunes through out the game! In My opinion its some of the best music ever in a video game!
Sound: The sound is great. Nuff said!
Overall: I have always loved Super Mario Brothers! If you like excellent adventure games then I strongly recommend you play this game!
To purchase this video game check out Amazon.com!
I remember this being the first game I played when I was a kid. I love it along with it's sequels! The music is fun and so are the graphics! With the new games out, this game seems old fashioned, but I remember playing it and liking it.

This is an absolute classic, as it's still tons of fun to play today, I really suggest you try and play it if you haven't.The levels start off easily but once you go you will find that they get harder each time!, plus the part that always frustrates me is when I go to save the princess I have to watch out for these fireballs and this big turtle with spikes on it. The effects really have dated, however I can really guarantee you, that you will still enjoy the game so much, if you rediscover it, plus the music in it is just great!. I always loved going into the tunnels in the 1st level to see how many rings I could get, and another thing that bugs me is I have trouble trying to get to the top of the pole when the level finishes, plus when you have regular Mario some of these big jumps are a lot harder if you have a full sized Mario!. This is an absolute classic, as it's still tons of fun to play today I really suggest you try and play it if you haven't you won't regret it!. ***** out of 5
I'm sure most people my age remember one or more situations like this:
some guy your parents knew was celebrating his birthday and you went
with your parents to the party. A lot of the other people also brought
their kids and after a while you were all gathered in one room. You
didn't really know each other that well, so what were you going to do?
Well, the kid who's room it was had a Nintendo (or later Super
Nintendo) or one of those pirated machines that played Nintendo games.
The answer was: you played Super Mario! Everybody agreed that it was a
fun game and everybody knew how to play it. It's simply the game of my
But what made this particular game so important and well liked? First of all, at the time it arrived it was revolutionary the first side-scrolling platform game ever and it was the game that made both video games and Nintendo popular. The story was good even if it was simple: You are Mario the plumber in the Mushroom Kingdom and you are on a mission to save the princess that have been kidnapped by Bowser. At the time this game was released they usually didn't bother to come up with interesting stories for games, so it's not like today when a lot of games have complicated story lines. It wasn't hard to figure out how to play, jump and land on an enemy's head and you will kill him, but it still wasn't that easy to beat. (Of course it's easier know that I'm soon to be 21 and have played it as many times as I have.) Last but not least, the music suited the game perfectly.
Something that to me is a sign that this is a good game is that it's still fun to play now when I'm almost 21, even though it was a game that was meant for kids (like all games that were released at that time) and the graphics are very out-dated. This is a game that a lot of people still play, it's been re-released both to Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance. Of course a lot of people download it and play it on emulators even though Nintendo doesn't like that.
For someone of my generation playing this game today is like re-living only the happy times of your childhood. When I played it as a kid I wasn't someone sitting in front of the TV playing a video game I was Mario and I was on a very important mission to save the princess!
