There have been plenty of great video game theories over the years, but one of my personal favorites concerns Super Mario Bros. 3. The legend is that the entire game is a play, a stage performance, if you will. If you’ve played the game, or even just looked a damn screenshot of it, you can start to see where the idea comes from and the more you think about it the more it seems true.
That GIF doesn’t do it for you? Okay, fancy pants, then take a look at this informative picture which essentially proves the Super Mario Bros. 3 theory.
Still don’t believe it? Well, tough shit because the game’s creator, Shigeru Miyamoto, fucking confirmed it. BAM! He also answered a few other questions regarding Super Mario and his cronies that I’m sure you’ve been dying to know since you were wee lads and lasses.
