Mario Brothers Turn 25
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
Happy “birthday” Mario and Luigi!
