Game Defeated! Super Mario Bros.

Okay, this is going to sound stupid... But I just beat Super Mario Bros. for the first time. Yes, THAT Super Mario Bros. From the 80's for the original Nintendo. I've probably logged hundreds of hours on that game over the years. I've beaten all the other Mario games. But I never beat the original. Until now!
I think one of the big things I did that helped me was I played it straight through - not taking any of the warps. This allowed me to build up 9 extra lives. I was on my last life when I beat it! BTW- The screen shot above was obviously taken by someone who DID use the warps (because of the low score), not me.

Man does it feel good to beat that game after almost 20 years!
