You've probably played or at least seen the original Super Mario Bros. The game was an instant classic in 1985 and propelled the Nintendo Entertainment System to the top of every kid's Christmas list and was responsible for saving the dying video game industry and putting Nintendo firmly on the industry's map.
What you probably don't know is that there's a really dark side of that game: you were probably killing a lot of innocent people. No, not the Koopas and Goombas, but actual citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom. If you read the original manual, it says that the Mushroom Kingdom was invaded by the Koopas who turned people into stones, bricks and plants.
Did it click yet? A lot of people in the Mushroom Kingdom were turned into bricks, the very same bricks that Mario gleefully destroys as you go through the game. So there you have it… Mario, savior or murderer?
