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.
