Why Mario is Mental

Why Mario is Mental

by Steve Napierski to Videos

This two part series by The Game Theorists about Mario’s true character is really good. Granted that the combined viewing time of the two episodes is 25:04, but after all is said and done I do feel it will be some of your good gaming time well spent… Or just watch it at work on the boss’s dime. ;)

Game Theory: Why Mario is Mental, Part 2

You might note that a certain comic makes a guest appearance in episode two, but I won’t tell you which one. Don’t want to ruin the surprise.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Mario, as portrayed in the various Mario games, is not just one character. The continuity just doesn’t line up that way. And then there’s all the gameplay/story segregation issues.

    Given the all the colorful mushrooms he’s consumed and the horrible situations he’s been through, is it any wonder? Stop seeing the monster, and see the ruined shell of a former plumber who needs help. Maybe that will be the next game.. “Mario’s Intervention”. Starts with his friends confronting him with his less desirable tendencies and him breaking down so badly he falls unconscious and we must travel through his subconscious, guided by his external friends to help him. Kinda like Sanitarium only with more turtles.

    I’ve never really liked this series. It’s like he takes a flawed premise and trolls everyone while ignoring key pieces of information that disprove his “why can’t anyone else see the truth” message.
