This has to be one of the coolest homemade YouTube videos I've ever seen. Ever wondered what the final climatic battle in Super Mario Brothers 3 would look like if filmed in first person and rendered on modern PC hardware?

Honestly, neither had I. Thankfully, Freddiew, the video's creator, had more imagination than I do. It took more than 50 days of rendering to produce this video, but the result is stunning.

On the other hand, this video makes me feel better about my total lack of platform jumping skills. I never could get very far in any of the classic Nintendo Mario games, and if the poor guy had to go through this, I feel less bad for killing him off early so many times.

I somehow managed to watch this entire video and not realize that there was a 2D version of the gameplay to the upper-left, haha.

Such a memorable fight.
