I'm sure I could find it elsewhere. I wouldn't want to put you through all the trouble of finding it only to find out the disk is corrupted.

I still have an old 5 1/4 drive for my computer. If I can find the disk image and figure out what kind of file system to format the disk in, I'll probably be able to copy it over.

Actually, I wish I still had my Apple. It got left behind in a move a few years ago. I had been keeping it around specifically so I could play all those classic games.

Someone will figure out that it's all just the same stuff, over and over, but by that time it will be too late. Nintendo will have slipped political programming into each game, and everyone will have played it. Eventually, Miyamoto's clone (who looks suspiciously like Mario) will become world leader.

Lesson: Don't buy a Wii or DS. It will only advance the evil plot.
Very nice. I could probably tolerate a world run by video game gods.

Better Nintendo's evil plot than Bill Gates's evil plot. Boycott the XBox. Buy the Wii.

Oh wow...Super Mario Bros! I think this was the first game I'd played on the NES!

I love this game, and was there a GBA version ever released? I wouldn't mind grabbing a copy to play on my DS!

I'll see if I can find the link, but I had read somewhere that more Canadians recognized the name "Mario" then their Prime Minister. If that doesn't scream success, (at least in Canada) I don't know what does.

EDIT: Ah, here's one of them.
I played both Rogue, and Super Mario Bros. in college. I had a friend who had a Nintendo, I had a PC running Minix in my dorm and played rogue a lot. I've since then graduated to Angband. In my high-school days it was pac-man and BC's Quest for Tires.

Ah memories :-D
