  1. My personal opinion is that Super Mario Bros., was the title that made Mario the character we all love today. As a kid I could never get enough when playing this particular game. After discovering some of the tricks like the “warp zone” or special hidden items I began to play it as race against the clock and try to finish it, with as less life loss as possible. Oh and yes the music was truly magical.
