I love Super Mario 64. It is pretty old but it’s perfect gameplay and well thought out levels never age. Thinking back on playing it for the first time ranks up there with my fondest childhood memories. King Bob-omb is the first boss – I remember being floored climbing up his mountain for the first time and looking out at the entire level. That sense of deep 3d space,adventure, bright colors and imaginative creatures are etched in my brain. I don’t play it much any more but I still enjoy watching mario 64 speedrunners obliterate it nightly. It is nothing short of amaziing the dexterity and patience required to do what they do. Check out spaceman on twitch. He is a nice guy who is good at talking and great at sm64. Edit:Fixed his nose – made it more kingly.
