Jump 'n runs

People who added this item 519 Average listal rating (574 ratings) 8.4 IMDB Rating 0
Super Mario Bros. - Famicom and NES
Very hard milestone of the jump 'n run genre.
Never played the more diffucult "New Game +" without save states.

Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels - Wii Virtual Console
This is the real Super Mario Bros 2.
In Europe & the USA another japanese jump 'n run was rebranded as Super Mario because this one seemed to be too difficult for EU & US.

It really is difficult!

Super Mario Bros. 2 - Famicom and NES
As said, this game originally was another japanese jump 'n run and not a Mario game.

It's no wonder that this game is quite strange, I like the original Mario games more!

Super Mario Bros. 3 - Famicom and NES
Great Mario with new powerups, nice overworlds and with mabny levels.

I like Super Mario World better, but this definitely is a must play jump 'n run!

It's easier (exept the boss level!) and has a nice overworld.

I'm not a fan of 3D Marios (so far) and I played Mario 64 way to late.
But I understand why it's great!

Conker's Bad Fur Day - Nintendo 64
Although conker looks like a typical family friendly Rare charakter, Conker's Bad Fur Day is an adventure for adults.

It's quite revolutionary, even though the gameplay isn't that great and very repetitive.

A must play!

RuneScape - PC Games
A pretty old free 2 play MMORPG.
It was the first MMORPG I played, and it's the one I played the most, although it's not that great.

Pretty outdated graphics & animations, it's free until you completed all the free quests, after that you have to pay monthly to unlock the rest of the game.
