Super Mario Bros. is a side-view platform action game and a staple NES game. Officially, it sold more than any other game in history (if you include package deals as sales) and is most likely the first game played by a member of the NES generation. The premise is simple; the princess has been kidnapped by a giant reptile, the king of the Koopas, and you being the awesome plumber that you are, must save her. This is a very early platformer, and it set the standard for many games that would come later.
