Hyrule can rot. I saved Princess Peach!

I successfully rescued Princess Peach from the evil clutches of of the terrible Koopa King Bowser. Order has been restored to the mushroom kingdom.

Yes that is right. I beat super mario brothers for the first time in my life. Go on and laugh, but I never had a Nintendo when I was a kid. However, I now have a Nintendo Wii and I love it. Aside from the incredible motion sensitivity and the fun games that you can buy for this platform, one thing that i love about this system is that you can download old school games like Super Mario Brothers and Sonic the Hedgehog.

I always remember going to friends' houses when people had the old school nintendo that came with super mario brothers and thinking that it was so awesome. I never beat the game before... until now. Lindsay and I both beat the game and it was a great feeling of accomplishment. It feels like I can finally close that door from my childhood. Maybe now I can move on to games that have been created in the 21'st century.

now now I'm happy you beat this game, really I am, and it's incredible. but you really don't have to let Hyrule rot to do it.

Haha! that's cool! I played it when I was 5 years old. :D

there really doesn't need to be such aggression towards hyrule in order to support super mario. because the same man created both worlds. i'm sure he'd want you to save both of them.
