Having recently sat down and watched a marathon of Game Center CX, I found that the Super Mario Bros. 2 episode was stuck in my mind.
It’s been a while since I sat down and gave the disk system version of Mario 2 a good thorough play-through. Was it really as hard as Shinya Arina and co. led me to believe? Don’t get me wrong- I am fully aware that the original Super Mario 2 is the most difficult platforming Mario game, even harder than my arch nemesis Vs. Super Mario Bros., but still. I consider myself to be a pretty stellar Mario player, and I think I could give the game a run for it’s money.
Or not. The game is fucking impossible. And I mean that almost completely literally. To the point where it is not even fun. Like, seriously?
