the older i get, the more i realize that some things should never change. classic games are loved for a certain reason. perhaps it was a flaw. perhaps it was the strange characters. maybe it was the limitations of the console. for whatever the reason, classics are beloved for a reason.
according to cnet, along with other sources, the creator of super mario brother is – wait for it – ashamed of it. i KNOW, i said WTF too. shigeru miyamoto has a problem with the graphics specifically, but in general the whole game is a thorn in his side.
Super Mario Bros. was made for a different time. And because of that, he said, some of the flaws that were unable to be seen 25 years ago are glaringly obvious on today’s HD sets.
“Back then, with tube televisions, it was a little blurrier and the images weren’t quite so sharp,” Miyamoto said. “The places where we tried to fudge it a bit really stand out (on a current display).”
come on. maybe it’s a cultural thing, as many asians are known to be obsessed with perfection. personally, i think the man is being too hard on himself.
