What Super Mario taught me
I am sure you have played Super-Mario at one time or another in your life.
What with the sweet music and simple yet addictive gameplay. Life was simple back then with just 8 buttons to press with two thumbs. One didn’t have to be a PhD. genius to learn the controls. Directions keys to move. Button A to jump, B to shoot fireballs at the enemy.
And yet within the numerous permutations and combinations of such simple moves, “Super” Mario was able to perform a series of complex manoeuvres to do the strangest of things.
But did You ever wonder what happened after you rescued the princess.
That would be the game’s end. You stopped playing. Right??
The designers of video-games realised it long back that they couldn’t let the game end like that. Hence they made it essential for the hero to rescue the princess. Because thats when the real challenge starts!!
Here’s a sneak preview at a game where the hero manages to rescue the princess.
See for yourself, What happens next… 😉
They sure didn’t make games like this when i used to play them… 😉
DISCLAIMER: Events depicted in the video are figments of the game developers imagination. In real life, after the hero rescues the princess, they get together and they live happily ever after. 🙂 🙂
