Happy #Mario35! My first game with the red guy was Christmas 2002, getting my first Nintendo console and game- a GBA with Mario Kart: Super Circuit. I later got the first 3 GBA Mario remakes in the early 00s, also a part of my very early Mario experience. I love them all. 💚 pic.twitter.com/RsNUtaUckN— Nas 🦊🌱 (@Nas_160) September 13, 2020

If not for this game (and Super Mario World), I would’ve never gotten into video games.September 13, 2020

Mario has always been an important part of my life. Not only getting me hooked on my favorite past time, but also building a bridge for me to make friends and creating fun memories with my Nintendo loving son. Here’s to 35 more years! pic.twitter.com/xXTEnVLfrG
