i dont know why everyones mad about the beginning of this video; i just came to say that I am shocked and appalled that no one knows Sarasaland or that Daisy is its princess. This is baseline Mario cannon, folks

Seriously, we're talking back of the box (and in the manual) of Super Mario Land 1 here, not some after the fact additions. Where else would a name like "Sarasaland" come from other than the game with all those practically untranslated names everywhere?

Just as in Metal Gear Scanlon, the true extent of Dan's purported expertise in one of his "favorite" video game series has been laid bare, and it is not a pretty sight.

Though he'd probably just say "that's not a *mainline* Mario game".

I thought this was an ok QL but I wish they'd done the real karate instead of the crazy one.

I could not agree more with Dan every time Abby tried to get him to use motion controls.

I don't understand how breakdancing is not like figure skating and how someone could think break dancing doesn't have athletic feats to judge in the same way as figure skating.

Man this Community sucks more and more each day. I really liked it here but reading those comments. As soon as Abby says something and Dan doesn’t like Kojimas Bullshit Game everybody gets mad? I love gaming but I hate gamers, seriously what is wrong with people....

Abby kills me whenever she calls Silver Beautiful Sonic :D that's great!

Sadly this seems like another Nintendo game that takes all the challenge out of it by only offering one difficulty option. Like they were figuring out the controls on the fly, messed up multiple times , yet still easily won in some of those games? Fun for beginners, but that stuff stops being fun after the first 10 minutes. Would anyone care about Wipeout or Forza / Gran Turismo if you didn't have the option to shave off miliseconds and push yourself to the limit if you wanted to?

Also mind boggling how you can't just throw a bunch of games in a row to see who does the best. I expect better from the one company in gaming that's all about how games should be fun for the whole family.
