    While the gaming industry is hitting new lows in terms of excitment and major game releases, console yourself (no pun intended) with this video: the first level of Super Mario Bros. 1 re-created with 3DSMax, with added special graphic and sound effects. I don't know about you, but I'd totally pay for a game like this.

    From Where???
    i would really enjoy if a bunch of old classics were remade in that style. it seems like such an obvious evolution for platformers that was completely bypassed.

    In all serious-ness, this was an awesome work of 3DSmax, as a game, I think I would lose. A lot. :P (Fails to get flag)

    Play the video with your eyes closed. It's interesting.

    First time I ever saw mario die when jumping to get the flag - I like :)
    It'd make it so that if you didn't get the top bit (the round bit), or just walk into it, you'd die. More challenge :)

    I guess some people never out-grow that phase of crappy Mario sprite cartoons on Newgrounds.

    They just evolve.

    It looks great, but it would be 5x better with music.

    The graphical style looks awful, and the camera zooming in and out makes it very difficult to watch, I can't imagine how irritating it would be to play. The sound effects are terrible, and when he gets the star and it doesn't make the star noise, it just makes the whole thing feel lifeless.

    Nintendo games always have a little bit of the "x-factor" magic, and this little demo has no magic at all.

    When games are remade, there's often a split, there's no way to make everybody happy. I mean look at stuff like New Super Mario Bros. for an attempt to remake old games with new graphics and mechanics. Those games are accepted by some, but hated by others for involving new concepts. Then look at things like Ocarina Of Time for the 3DS. That's a strict remake, and people say it's short and boring if you've played the original (but of course people wet their pants in anticipation for emulation so they can... play the original games?)

    This. maybe it could be pulled off with replay-style things (like an instant replay of a good moment in a racing game), but realtime = no.

    I don't think this could work for a full game. For a little demo, though, it's pretty neat.
