Since this list is focusing on the ends of the games spoiler discretion is advised if you haven’t played much Mario and want to keep it all a secret. So with that warning in mind get ready to disagree as we explore my top 8 of the Greatest Bowser Battles ever!

Otis the Pug plays a Super Nintendo, Yoshi gets a kiss and Super Mario bonus games are played. What more could you ask for? Join me as I play 5 of the best old school Super Mario Bonus game type things! To be fair, some of these are more like “secret areas” but I think I can get away with it.

Somehow I have always enjoyed watching people play video games! At times, it’s actually more enjoyable for me then being the one controlling the “mennies” (that means “characters” for those of you not familiar with my Dad’s video game slang)!

Many thanks to Julien (aka “Trudbol”) for taking the time to email me not only some kind words about Mario Mayhem but also his amazing video of his rendition of the Super Mario World theme!

This awesome acapella (plus guitar) style version of the super Mario world theme is really awesome and is apparently a joint project between SongeLeReveur and Trudbol however Trudbol didn’t elaborate on the collaboration and who did what, either way I think this is a really cool video.

Enjoy!
