Realistic Mario: Ruining My Childhood


In Pete Holmes’ latest sketch comedy video, we finally get to see what Mario’s 8-bit world would be like if it was a little more realistic.

If video games were realistic we wouldn’t play them because they would be awful. When have you ever played a game that was meant to be realistic that wasn’t awful. It would either be impossible to play or boring as a spreadsheet tracking the cost of corn.

That’s because real-life sucks. For this reason video games were created. But people like to point out the hilarity in fiction sometimes. Here we have a video of what would happen if Mario was more realistic. Be warned, it is devastating.

Hit the jump for the video.

I know Mario really hits the bricks with his fist, but tell me the results would be different.
