    On this day, 1/1/1981 the game, "Donkey Kong" for the Arcade was released in Japan and North America. Obviously, Donkey Kong and Pauline were in it, but they weren't as successful as the the plumber himself, Mario.

    So everyone! Play a Mario game today! Whether it's a Yoshi game, a Donkey Kong game, or even
    a Wario game!

    Also, I have a question for you all:

    What was the very first Mario game you've ever played? Mine was Super Mario Bros.

    Wow 30 years already? Damn, I thought it was more like 25 or so, pretty amazing feat.
    My first Mario game is probably Super Mario 64 on the neighbours N64. Amazing shit, just superb game.

    Mario and Luigi: Superstar saga. Lame I know but I never really had a liking to a plumber who eats 'shrooms but doesn't get high. What more GAINS a life after eating a GREEN one.

    I may not be an expert but I hell as know that a green mushroom = death

    the nes version is the 25 year old one....i was confused too when nintendo said mario's only 25 year old....but well, that's when he really got into it's final form
    my first was ofc the nes game, hehh, but nothing beats yoshi's island for me[if it's considered a mario game?]

    First Mario game I played was Super Mario Bros. on my cousin's NES.
    The Mario game that influenced me the most is Super Mario 64, and it was the first game I ever owned.

    Happy 30th anniversary M-dawg! [​IMG]
