Not if you knew the uber 2x warp whistle trick. then, like that japanese guy that made the big stir a few months ago with the "Mario 3 in 11 mins" (or whatever ridiculously short amount of time it was), you end up in the last world and can rush right to Bowser. I think I did it a few times as a kid, but I probably never beat the game without that trick until I played it on emulator a year or two ago with save states.


Yes, and I did that.

However, worlds 2-7 sounded interesting, and I would have liked to ever have it be plausible that I was going to see them. But since the game had no passwords and no saves, that just wasn't going to happen, because, simply put, I couldn't tie up the television for that long.

I will bellow like the thunder drum, invoke the storm of war
A twisting pillar spun of dust and blood up from the prairie floor
I will sweep the foe before me like a gale out on the snow
And the wind will long recount the story, reverence and glory, when I go

You weren't a very inventive kid were you?  Leave the NES on, unplug the RF adapter from the back of the NES.   Tell parents to please leave the console on.  The bane of my existance for that method was my dad running too many power tools in a garage that was stupidly wired in with the living room.  Power fluctuations could cause the nes to reset.

I have completed smb3, using this tactic.

See, now I'm at this point where, if the game requires that much work to be able to complete, it is a problem.

I mean, don't get me wrong - SMB3 is a great game once they add the save feature.

But not including it from the start was one of the bigger design idiocies Nintendo ever committed.

I'd like to see the numbers on Freecell and Minesweeper ;) Come on, lets be fair when we talk about bundled games!


Minesweeper would blow away Freecell. http://www.mindspring.com/~jforbes2/winhist/">Minesweeper has been bundled since Win 3.1. Freecell didn't come bundled until Win 95. Basic solitaire is the overall winner having been bundled with Windows since 3.0.

You do know that that was hoaxed, right?


Yeah, I know. But it was still beautiful.

All this reinforces to me is that Nintendo could be MS rich if they produced cross-platform games.

Idiots.

They are rich. Not cross platforming those games helped them drive sega into the ground. Nintendos first party games are the reason they sell half of their systems.
