Gaming Meme History - Our Princess Is In Another Castle!
Thank you GameSpotters! But our video is on another pag- wait, no. Join Jess McDonell right here as she revisits this classic Nintendo meme!
Whoa whoa whoa, you could actually beat Super Mario Bros? What about that castle that goes on forever until the time runs out? I always assumed that it was supposed to be some sort of statement about the "futility of obsession" or something by the game designers.
I'm pleased that you are showing a much larger percentage of the video with game footage rather than yourself - thank you for dispelling my concerns that these are 'look how pretty I am' videos. Attractive you are; but of course it's games that draw us to this website!
Though I would love to see you getting 'gritty' sitting at a desk actually playing a game; no kind of perverse reasons of course, but more akin to that Irish chap's (forget his name) videos: it makes for a more convincing critic/analyst if we get to see them actually playing games ;)
I pictured this image:
Mario, a 24 year old Italian able to fix a minor leak under the sink no problem, is a fan of Jess's. While enjoying too many mushrooms not sold in stores;) he searches the castles of the UK to see if Jess is perhaps inside. Castle guard, "Sorry mate, maybe she's in another castle?... ... (under his breath)yeah right..."
Kinda creepy, but if that could happen, maybe the idea of Mario isn't too far fetched.
This meme was a meme before memes even existed. Since I was like 5 my friends and I would say that phrase whenever we failed to find/get something.
Also, anyone else get upset when Mario didn't get all the coins at about :12?
@Sekhemket Just like the cake.
@Sekhemket Begin again.
@wavelength121 Lol You gotta take the right paths in that castle and you will get to Bowser eventually
@withoutdogma Was it?? Apologies.
@willzihang You're talking about Danny and he's awesome.
@willzihang I've never seen anyone play a meme ;P
@willzihang You're more than welcome to catch me playing horror games every Tuesday night (PST) or Wednesday afternoon (AEST) on House of Horrors at twitch.tv/gamespot! Dead Space kicked my ass a bit today, though.
@SpookyJack I'm quite attached to it.
@thefrank86 I like your idea of a more realistic and grim version of Mario.
@SlowMotionKarma Yea! why dind't he jump! They were right there!
@Suikogaiden With guest commentator, Anita Sarkeesian!
@kljhkll Because he was kidnaped by Bowser too. Duh. He doesn't know where she is.
@kljhkll gaming meme is not in your vocabulary me thinks not.
@Thumbler76 yeah! hope she appears wearing an Australian cleavage next episode!
@jessie82 Not that much to say =] Sorry about that, I keep my shows between -12 and -6 levels and I think the ads are -6.
@tempertress That's ok, you can come too.
