What better game to mark the 5th anniversary of Game of the Month than the one that kicked started the 64 we all love? Mario 64 was my first experience with the Nintendo 64. I am sure that can be said for a lot of us here. It changed the way I saw gaming. Less than two months after playing it, I had my own N64 and a copy of Mario. The N64 helped define my high school years. Ultimately a game on the N64 (Perfect Dark) led me to meeting my wife of 14 years now. So aside from being an amazing game, I owe it a debt of gratitude for the road it helped me go down :lol:

I still go back and play it a few times a year. My daughter likes to watch me play, and she likes to run around the castle courtyard. The gameplay was revolutionary, the graphics were amazing at the time, and the music is timelessly great! Though I never got the last star needed to get 100% on the game (dang flying around for 8 red coins level :lol: ) I have repeatedly played through and beat the game a number of times.

I suspect that I will still be playing it from time to time in the years to come :)

My daughter loves the cannon in the courtyard. Thankfully their was a copy of Mario 64 on our Wii when it was given to us. My wife's brother had gotten all 120 stars on one of the saves on it. That is usually the one she plays on :yeah:
