    No. I mean it.

    Who the crap came up with the idea for mario and all the things involved in it? An italian plumber, going to save a non-italian princess from a distant land that doesn't exist from a huge turtle with spikes on his shell. He takes SHROOMS to make himself bigger and do other effects to his body. Mushroom kingdom? Really, did NO ONE suspect anything when they heard that in the late 70's or early 80's? Or was everyone just too high off their own version of the drug to care? Thats worse than Neverland from Michael Jackson.

    Messed up.

    I think its nice. Nintendo managed to create a world of its own. Everyone knows it. If you see one "object" or "person" from it you instantly know its nintendo's world!

    No other console has got a franchise so persistent and deep like nintendo

    funny stuff Spyro...

    Reminds me of my favorite Mario related quote:

    "we all knew Mario was a druggie. i mean, who else takes shrooms to be larger than life? who else uses a pipe to travel to new worlds? who else sees a giant plant in a pipe and defeats it with a little flame? i could go on." - the p00t

    I still respect Nintendo's most famous character, however when you look at the whole concept there is a few hangups there. :)

    Yeah it is something to think about.
    But I still love Mario.
    It was just an idea of theirs, just like a lot of other games.
    This one just happens to have a drug reference.

    Wow, someone is a Mario hater!
    Mario is a good series of game, though lacking in some aspects. The mushroom kingdom has no reference to drugs, and I'd advise you not to bring your drug induced stuff into this forum.

    What about Super Paper Mario?

    Is not the plumber 'flipping out' into other dimensions?

    Seems a bit 'flashback' to me.

    i know....its almost a slap in the face to Mr. Miyamoto.......

    after all hes done for us......ppl still question his creativity

    Spyro would be NOTHING without an italian plumber that rescues a non-italian princess from a turtle with spikes on its back from a distant island :)

    This is why Nintendo will always be the greatest, most creative video game company. No one even compares

    i'd have to agree there were some intentional drug references but think of when maro was created.. it wasnt uncommon to do shrooms back then so to make a game with the underlying theme of drug use really isnt that bad. besides, its nothing like that today, sure it can be viewed that way but its not supposed to be.

    who ever said drugs cant do you any good? :p

    No, not really. Because in reality the entire Mario theme is really an art form, and like any art is best when it generates emotion. So it's not a question of his creativity as responses from Spyro and even my quote from "the p00t" only proves that Miyamoto is by far one of the most creative geniuses on this planet to present what could be considered a literal masterpiece that the world has never seen. At least, it was when it was originally released. :)

    With Mario's superior originality and unique story line, Nintendo managed to generate a lot of positive emotion with it's art that helped shape the company as it is today. Personally I find it all fascinating and personally love it when people share there emotional responses, good or bad, as I know the stronger the expression the better the evaluated piece, and if Miyamoto is any kind of artist then he probably appreciates that fact too.

    Good thing Mario has generated more positive response than negative, likewise the most recognizable game character in the world might have not made it. Likewise all you fans should appreciate the strong response that Mario generates, as it is that very fact that has made your favorite character such a strong influence in all our hearts and minds, good or bad. :)
