Mario Brothers Turn 25

Via Flickr user Ellery Chen

I bought a Wii a few years ago and the first games purchased were Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros 2, and Super Mario Bros 3. Clearly I miss games from when I was a nerdy kid. They are also the ONLY video games in the world that I’m good at. So what was the world like in 1985?

  • Back To The Future was in Theaters
  • Ronald Reagan began his second term
  • The guy who created Facebook (Mark Zuckerberg) was only a year old
  • Madonna launched her first tour
  • Calvin & Hobbes were created
  • Coca-Cola tried to give the world “new Coke”
  • VH1 launched and so did Nick At Nite
  • Justin Bieber’s mom was nine
  • The Golden Girls premiered on NBC
  • MacGyver premiered on ABC

For some real nostalgia check out the sounds of Super Mario or Super Mario Brothers.

Happy “birthday” Mario and Luigi!
