    How does The Lost Levels get it’s name?

    • Bowser498

      I think it came from the game “Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels”. ;p

    I never had a Game Boy, but I do have some Game Boy games (from Virtual Console) for my Nintendo 3DS. Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins is the game that I play the most. I don’t know why, but that game sparked me to like this game a lot. I also like Game Boy music (ex. Pokémon Gold/Silver/Crystal, SML2, Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening).

    • The Final 10 (AKA: RafalRib)

      I had my gameboy with that mario game and its probably one of the most addicting mario games that ever existed!

        I agree. I love the catchy music & unique, but simple level designs. The bosses were total jokes. Wario’s Castle was the only stage that gave me some trouble, but overall, it’s probably one of my favorite classic Mario games ever.

        • The Final 10 (AKA: RafalRib)

          That game needs to have a remake!

  • Marioman01

    I never had a Game Boy. But I did use to have a Game Boy Advance. I mainly played Mario Tennis and Super Mario Advance.

      I was born in the gameboy advance era, and I had all systems after the GBA

      • Marioman01

        I was born before the Game Boy and the GameCube. But I was born almost a complete 3 years before the Nintendo 64 was discontinued in North America. But I never got into Nintendo until one day (I don’t remember the year), my Dad came home from somewhere (I don’t remember that either). When he got home, he also brought home the Nintendo DS with the remake of Super Mario 64. Until that day. I played ports of Playstation games like Magical Racing Tour on the computer.

        Same! I can’t go a day w/ out playing my GameCube lol

        • http://www.mariopartylegacy.com/ Bowser498

          Same here! But sadly I don’t have a Gameboy nor a Gamecube. (I’ve played a Gamecube – MP7) :( I have 3 systems in the DS/3DS family, and 2 systems in the Wii/Wii U Family…

          • ImpaDude

            i have a gba, ds, and ads and i have a wii, wii u, and a gamecube

          • http://www.mariopartylegacy.com/ Bowser498

            Woah, that is a lot of consoles! PS: Did you mean to say 3ds instead of ads?

          • ImpaDude

            Ugh! Goddamn autocorrect. Plus, I only really use my 3ds for the handhelds. Gba and sd aren’t really useful anymore since I have most of my favorite Gba games on my 3ds

          • http://www.mariopartylegacy.com/ Bowser498

            Ok, got it! (I have SMB2, SMB3, and MK64 on my Wii, but nothing on my other consoles except for dlc. :p) Older console games usually are on newer consoles; that is why newer consoles have more total sales than older consoles…
