    Super Mario from a First Person Camera (Now in 3D)
    The view from the plumber’s seat looks pretty cool, as one youtuber has discovered.
    Youtube user FreddieW has gotten in on the 3D craze, with a new 3D version of what a first-person Mario game would look like; and the results are pretty cool.

    The original video was uploaded March 17th, but just yesterday Freddie uploaded a version that pops out with 3D glasses. The idea of Mario in first person was pretty awesome, Freddie brings us through the first level of SuperMario from a different viewpoint and with a few adjustments made to make the game more like a first person shooter. As seen in this screenshot, he created an achievement system and used the original game as a map in the top left corner of the screen.

    Mario performs his vintage moves- jumping on goombas, shooting fireballs, busting blocks and collecting mushrooms like a pro. The detail is fantastic, with bricks falling at your feet and fireballs igniting the air. The question the video raises is, of course, will we see anything like this is Super Mario 3DS? The first person camera lends itself very well to 3D gaming, allowing the player to truly feel immersed in a world that used to feel so very flat…

    Perhaps if Mario moves into First-Person view, other classic games will follow. Can you imagine seeing the world through Donkey Kong’s eyes?

    What game would you like to see updated to include a first person camera?

    It isn't a game at all. It is a video created by youtube user freddiew. He is a mastermind of special effects and animation. One of my top youtube users.

    It is nice speculation though. Why not go ahead and move it to the 3DS section for further discussion.

    Why? It's not like it will happen because of this video. Though, I guess you're one of the reasons why he made this video:

    Probably. But then again, I didn't like the video. So I commented negatively.

    It was more of an ironic thing to say, actually. If you read my comment, it's less trolling and more of a negative statement. It was only considered trolling because people don't like to be told they are wrong.

    Ah, I see. I though you were just being classic _Chaz instead of new _Chaz_. Next time just say that you commented negatively and others didn't like it. When you said trolling because you didn't like it, I though of someone from 4Chan.
