The sun has come out from behind the clouds, and the world is beautiful again. Now birds sing in the trees and now animals frolic in the long grass. The spring breeze has never been this sweet, nor has the river run so clear.
Beauty has finally come to Earth, and love has returned to the hearts of every person. Hunger shall never again darken a child’s face and death is banished forever-more. All human suffering is at an end and we shall all be as gods, eternally.
Today, yes, sweet today, 16 years after its original release, I have seized the gold in Super Mario Kart’s Super Cup at 150cc class. This final defeat of the hardest courses on the highest difficulty has made my life complete.
Anyone else out there? What old games are you still beating your head against — or triumphing over?
And… anyone interested in buying a used Super Nintendo?
