There was very little debate about whether we would talk about Super Mario Bros. 3 on this podcast. It was only a matter of time until we tackled one of the first console blockbuster titles. Did you know that Super Mario Bros. 3 inadvertently spawned Id Software, the creators of Doom? Is there a hidden artistic message? What exactly makes the legendary NES platformer so legendary? The three hosts go over this and a whole lot more while discussing whether or not it is one of the best games period.
Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative.
