Hi, Nick Hagman here again, the guy who beat Castlevania with a dance pad. I'm back, and wanted to announce that I've finally beaten Super Mario Bros. with a dance pad as well!
 
 

  
It took me a week and a half to do this, and got about 14 Game Overs.

Please vote on which game I should play next: DuckTales 1 (NES) or Mega Man 2 (NES)!
 

Also, before I started to record my runs, I made a Training Montage for Super Mario Bros.! In it, I prepare to play the game with epic music playing in the background!

That was awesome bro!  Now try the original Ninja Gaiden series! Or Mega Man, perhaps?

Excellent work my friend. For your next project, how about Final Fantasy VII with a GCon?

Great form, sir! I remember having trouble with some of these levels on a regular controller- and I´m a horrible (virtual) dancer, so you just totally blew my mind!
