Longplay: Super Mario Bros. 3 - Warp Whistle Run

 I have been contemplating doing a Longplay of the seminal Super Mario Bros. 3 for quite some time now. For me it was a game I spent countless hours with as a kid, and it was one of the very first games I truly obsessed over.

Part of what held me back in doing this video is that Super Mario Bros. 3 is by no means a short game when it comes to platformers of the day. However, there are a few tricks up the game's sleeve that allows the player to bolt to the end of the game in about 30 minutes, and that's what I decided to do for this play session. Funny enough, it's actually fitting because I had a tendency to play in this manner quite a bit during the late '80s.

Throughout my life I have been an avid gamer. My early years in particular consisted of growing up with platforms like the Atari VCS/2600, NES, and Master System. Naturally, that led into platforms like the Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo, Sega CD/32X, Sega Saturn, Virtual Boy, etc. In the mid to late 1990's, I realized (as a fledgling teenager with little disposable income) that I could obtain those systems that I once thought were completely out of my reach as a child (Neo-Geo, Atari Jaguar, CD-i, 3DO, etc.), and it was from there that I went into a long-term phase of discovering, experiencing and collecting consoles--just about anything I could get my hands on. While I enjoy the occasional modern game, these days time is limited outside of my many hobbies, so I tend to hover towards quick pick-up-and-play types of games, via generations I truly grew up with: Shoot 'em ups, arcade style beat 'em ups, platformers, light gun shooters, and racing games. Not to mention pinball games, something new (to me) that has become a main focal point of interest. In addition to the podcast with Kris, I also create a variety of content on my own YouTube Channel, including video game reviews, Long Plays, and Let's Plays.
