    In my opinion Super Mario 3 was one of the best followups to Super Mario Brothers. All our friends in the neighborhood rushed over to play practicaly everyday. The game was tough, as most of you can remember. No matter how hard we tried we never beat it. Soon the game tired us out and Mortal Kombat I was out. Well, three years ago I purchased an old Nintendo (still have the original box btw) and purchased SMB3 for old times sake. Any way, at 28 I finally beat the game...hahaha!!! Its a funny story.

    Share your experiences playing Super Mario 3. Did you find enjoyment, boredom, frustration, bonding moments with friends, crazy sleepovers where you stayed up all night (I had many. We'd play until 6am)?

      Just might be the best video game ever. I also stayed up late nights with a friend playing it. I didn't need to wait until growing up to beat it though. Maybe 'cause I had this:



      Now, my aunt worked in a video store at the time. So when I got Super Mario 3 for Christmas, I got a store copy. And when it first came out that game was so immensely popular, that I guess the store couldn't get the American version...so I had the Japanese version with an adaptor. That was very cool.

        I got smb3 the same xmas I got my nes. I got that strategy guide probably around 6 months later. I still have the strategy guide, though not in it's original condition. The glue they used in the binding was cheapass crap that didn't hol up more than a couple weeks before pages starting falling out. As a result, I punched holes in the pages & put them in a trapper keeper with a folder acting as a cover, and glued the cover to the front of the folder. I then used the trapper keeper to keep various game notes/maps/etc in other folders & in the trapper keeper's pockets. I have some graph paper maps I made of metroid and kid icarus, codes I copied down from the sega channel, codes I jotted down from gamewinners.com via my webtv I had at the time, and I think a few other odds & ends.

          Odd, I don't remember having any problems with the binding. But that could just be faulty memory, my copy went I have no idea where long ago. I recently obtained a new copy in great condition from eBay.

          Anyway, Drahken that is awesome that you still have yours along with your own notes.

          This game was a true phenomenon.



          I remember thinking there would never be another game this amazing. My dream was to have a big house, and a giant TV where I would play this game when I was an adult. Funny how all of that kind of came true even if it's not exactly the way I imagined it. At the same time, we kids did fantasize about how amazing things would be in the future, when Japan would finally let us have Super Mario 8 and 128-bit graphics (which of course we thought they already had). That one did not really come true at all. New Super Mario was fun but far from perfect. And I hate the 3D Mario games!

            This was my favorite game as a kid. If I was home sick or had a snow day, I would get comfy in my bean bag chair and go through the entire game start to finish.

              This was the very first game I remember getting a huge release. Blockbuster had an entire section of copies. My cousins and I played it nonstop for the rest of the year. Probably got these at the same time.

                    this is my favorite game of all time!

                    absolutely untouchable in my opinion, and i enjoy several genres and consoles. i can always come back to this one, play through 1-1 and it puts a smile on my face. i probably beat it about once or twice a year.
