The original Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo Entertainment System, released in 1985, is about as iconic as a video game could possibly get. The history of Mario has been retold a countless number of times, but when you sit back and look at the past 33 years of the mustached character, the amount of progress we've made is really breathtaking.

If you owned a Nintendo 64 game console, then there's a good chance you also played GoldenEye 007, one of the most popular games of its time and still a title that gamers look back fondly on. In a couple of days, it will have been 25 years since it first came out. As that day approaches, the game's developers have a revelation to make—if you played as Oddjob, you kind of cheated. Karl Hilton, the game's lead environment artist, and Mark Edmons, gameplay and engine programmer for GoldenEye 007, stated as much in an interview with MEL Magazine. Both acknowledged the inherent advantage of paying with Oddjob, which you probably always suspected, even if you were loathe to admit it. The thing... Read more...
