Nintendo’s Mascot is officially 30 years old, and Play Legit staff gathered together to share our Mario memories.

T-42: The first time I remember playing Mario, I was 3 years old in 1989.  What a trip, the kid 2 houses down from me had an NES and with Excite Bike. Crazy that I remember that. We were in Lexington Kentucky at the time. It wasn’t until my 8th Birthday that I got a SNES that came with Super Mario World and Super Mario All Stars.

Ms. Throwback: Mario is the reason I started gaming. Period.  Who could resist the vibrant colors, catchy music, and challenging appeal.  He is the pinnacle of gaming.  Hard to believe he’s only a year older than me.

mario-brosKJ:  I would play at friends and family homes, experiencing Super Mario 1-3 in a secondhand type of way. However, my first legitimate Mario experience was with World. The inclusion of Yoshi immediately upped the already-high fun factor. The island music too mon! Super Mario RPG impressed me with its visuals. One of my favorites from that genre still.  Though I missed the NES boat growing up, my SNES lineup would make up for it.

Ms. Throwback: Super Mario World was my first too. I back tracked at my dad’s house later in life and played all the originals. The weird part is it never felt like backtracking. They were all so different and I loved them all.

What are some of your Mario Memories? We would love to check them out.
