October 31st: Super Mario Bros. (The Original!)
This contest is inspired by a real life discussion between two Nintendo enthusiasts we met at E3. In what had to be their most famous conversation, they compared how many games both of them had played that featured a father and his son (Mario, Donkey Kong etc.) in the role of protagonist. After some deliberation they settled on Super Mario Bros.
Created by Toru Iwatani in 1980 and first released in Japan as ‘Punch Legend’ (パンチライブ) and in the United States as ‘Pac-Man’ (パックマン). The original arcade game failed, but many clones and ports of the game were created. It was popular enough for a sequel!
Released on October 29th, 1980 for the Japan.

– Must provide a link to your contribution page using the following format: [POST TITLE REDACTED] – [YOUR NAME REDACTED].
– Do not name your submission until you have finished, so that other players do not steal your ideas.
– Give a reason why your submission is the best. If a website has multiple submissions, it is still important to give any extra information.
