It’s already four days into the New Year. It’s crazy how time just keeps flying by. What is this life and it’s purpose?
I wish we could freeze time sometimes. I have moments where I just don’t ever want it to stop because they are just that special. Whether that’s going to a free comedy show, or playing board games or playing video games all day. When I say video games, you know that only consists of Mario and Luigi 2-D games or fighting games.
I really do love the Mario and Luigi 2-D games. I have such appreciate for the work that the creators put into it. There are so many shuttle details.
As a child, my family didn’t have a lot of money. So when my two older brothers brought home a Nintendo for us …it was extremely exciting g. I actually remember that day like it was yesterday. They came home with this big box! And we had never seen such a thing! I still have that Nintendo today. It is so a special to me. I don’t even use it because I don’t want it to get ruined. Someday I am going to just put it on display.
During the school year, my mom would take the controllers and hide them from us because she want us to focus on school. During the Summer, she would allow us to play as much as we wanted. we had a few games. The ones I remember are Zelda, Street fighters 1 & 2, Mario Cart, Yoshi’s world and my favorite game was Mario All Stars, which has five games in it.
I played Mario All Stars every Summer until college. We didn’t have a lot of money, so new games weren’t an option. We eventually got the PS2 but that system just wasn’t as fun for me as the Mario games. So I kept playing the same games every Summer. By the time Summer game, I would miss playing them and the replay all of them. The best part about Mario is all the secrets. 😀
Today, games are so violent and boring. The whole 3-D platforms isn’t for me either.
