Why Super Mario Rules
Published on August 4, 2011 by Sara Foss

I hardly ever play video games, but if I did, I'd be a retro-gamer - someone primarily interested in the games of yesteryear. I used to think I was just a technological luddite, but I've since learned that there are lots of people like me - people who think Super Mario 1 and 3 are among the best video games ever made, regardless of how much the graphics and overall complexity of video games have improved. I still have my old Nintendo, and if could figure out how to hook it up to my flat-screen TV, I'd probably still be playing Mario, Tetris and Megaman.

If you love Super Mario as much as I do, check out this interview with Jeff Ryan, author of "Super Mario: How Nintendo conquered America."
