Also that footage is from Mario 2 everyone knows Mario doesn't go to the mushroom kingdom in Mario 2, and he doesn't rescue the Princess because hello, the Princess is a playable character in Mario 2, goddammit Stossel I will kill your family.

its not even the REAL SMB2. it was doki doki panic with a mario charactor. The real smb2 was only in japan.

I like how every mention of the U.S. Mario 2 on Youtube has some douche dropping by in comment form to lay that fun fact on everybody. Like every Street Fighter related thing having a comment about Japanese names of characters being switched around or Iceland really being green.

Oh yeah...additional 5 for the raging nerd kid.

That kid is angry.

Setting himself up for a lifetime of nerdrage and dissapointment.

Caminante Nocturno - 2009-07-07
That kid might be the koopa0999.

I want to know how many of the rest of you were kids interviewed in this report.

StanleyPain - 2009-07-06
I like how they blame the games for how people behave as opposed to, oh, the rampant, unhinged consumer culture in America.

Also, SMB2 was fucking awesome, easily one of the best platformers ever made, and all the weeaboo fucks who wanna name drop Doki Doki Panic can do it till they die, but the REAL SMB2 sucked donkey balls.

Yeah, those levels should have stayed "lost."

Did more than any abstinence only sex-ed program ever could.

I can't believe how far those kids are getting in Ironsword...

Also, I realize the futility of railing against a news report from the 80s or whatever godforsaken decade it was but what's the accusation of Nintendo holding back supplies? Did Nancy Grace learn her trade from Stossel? You can't just make shit up on the fucking news! Come on!

Seriously, the ROM chips in the 80s were expensive and sometimes in short supply, and in Japan they tended to use rewritable disks which were cheaper and they'd load the game on them at a mall kiosk.

Don't make shit up, news!

John Stossel had not even begun to reach the levels of smug assfuckery he would attain by the late 90's
