Super Mario Bros Voted Best Video Game Ever
Old Skool games are the best! Super Mario Bros Takes First Place.
Super Mario Bros has recently been voted the best computer game ever in an Internet poll conducted by www.onepoll.com. The brothers, Mario and Luigi, who conquer the Mushroom Kingdom to save Princess Peach took first place in the internet poll of over 2000 gamers.
The classic platform game was released in 1985 and has since sold more then 40 million copies worldwide. Nintendo later released Super Mario Bros 2 in 1988 and Super Mario Bros 3 in 1990. The third installment of the series is often considered to be the best, however sales have not quite caught up with the first, tilling up to around 18 million copies sold to date.
The results clearly proved that old skool games are still the most popular amongst Britain’s gaming nation.
Pac-Man, the classic arcade game which was released in 1980; took second place and Tetris, also an 80’s game; took third.
John Sewell, spokesman for www.onepoll.com, said:
“Games which were invented years ago, like Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, Super Mario and Pac Man all appear in the top ten.
“This shows that classic games will live on forever in the hearts of computer game fans.
“The gaming industry is getting more and more competitive, releasing more and more innovative games by the minute – but this survey proves that sometimes the most simple formats work well to keep game players hooked.”
A slightly more modern game, Simms, took forth place and another classic, Sonic the Hedgehog took fifth. And apart from Grand Theft Auto which took seventh and tenth, the rest of the top ten are all computer game classics. Full list of the top 20 below.
