It’s the last Thursday of the month, which means a Throwback post.
I know, I know… I’ve been talking a lot about Super Mario 64. But I just can’t help myself.
Super Mario 64 was one of the first games that I remember playing. It came out for the Nintendo 64 in 1996. I was only 3-years-old at the time. Not yet big enough to hold that controller in my hand.
Still, as I grew older, I remember watching both of my sisters play it along with my dad at times.
When I did start playing the game, I wasn’t very good at it. I mean, I’m still not that great at it. I can tell you where all the stars are, but it’s hard for me to get Mario to get the stars. Mario was pretty hard to control in that game. He slid all over the place and sometimes just didn’t want to jump correctly.
This game holds a special place in my heart as it was the first 3D Mario game and it was a great game.
I especially love it because it was the very first game Kris and I reviewed on this blog. I couldn’t tell you why we chose Super Mario 64 to be the first game, but we ended up doing a full 120-star run. That was the first time I had gotten every star in the game.
This is a fun game to enjoy and get angry with at the same time. Like I said, I always have trouble controlling Mario. It’s frustrating, but it’s funny at the same time.
After playing through Super Mario Odyssey, I kind of want to go back to Super Mario 64 and play through it again. But I still have so many moons to find in Odyssey…
