Maybe its just me but when I was like 5-7 years old I was playing Super Mario Bros , Zelda and other classic NES Games without a problem. But my fiances friend her son tried playing Super Mario Bros 3. And died like 4 times before the 3rd level. I mean how hard could it possibly be to control an "a" and "b" button on an NES Control Pad. This kid who is 13 btw can play games like Halo and Assassins Creed but couldnt play SMB3. I can understand my 4 year old son not being able to play them cause he didnt grow up with an NES. Now we have one. And he plays his Sesame Street games I got for him on it. Yeah we got all of the Sesame Street games for the NES. But I just dont understand how a 13 year old who can use a 360 control cant play a game like Super Mario Bros. Is it that two buttons was just too hard? Yet like a 20 button control is easier?

          I think playing the first Zelda is harder then Ocarina. 1/2 button games are harder.


          what do you do in a Sesame Street game ?

              ...because Mario can be frustrating since you take 1-hit and can die.

              I remember how frustrating the original Super Mario can be... miss the cliff, you die. Jump on a spikey creature, you die.

              In games like HALO & others, you have a life-bar that can even sometimes regenerate. You can take multiple hits, and still make it through the game ok... sometimes being limited to falling off of bottomless platforms, very unlike Mario of yesteryear.

                      I know thats why I think todays game are worse than those a the past. They are made way to easy in my opinion. But then yeah getting hit once or twice and then dying sucks too.

                              Because hes too use to playing new games and new consoles, same goes with my older sister she grew up playing everything from Atari, Intellivision, Colecovision to NES, SNES and Sega Genesis but she can't play new consoles....maybe he needs to keep playing....but I don't get todays kids either :?

                                Not ALL kids can suck at classic games, man. They just need a bit of practice. My 9-year-old cousin's good at TMNTIV.
