The real secret behind the video game characters.
Ok so my teacher like says that secrets are not spilled out until the're dead.

So I made this thread so that we can know the real secret behind the games like for let's start by finding out the reason why Nintendo made Mario as an Italian plumber.

If anyone knows the real secret post it here!!!!!!

RE: The real secret behind the video game characters.
Nintendo made Mario after they saw the success of Gears of War on the Neo Geo pocket and decided to copy that game exactly. After a few years of development and numerous changes, they wanted to make the protagonist an Italian plumber; hoping that it would appeal to younger hip crowd.

The idea of Mario the character came about when a pizza slice was wedged in Shigeru Miyamotos toilet. in a recent interview with Fishermans Weekly, Hideo Kojima said he saw his sink blocked by pasta and say "it was an Italian related problem so I'll call a plumber to this shi-, nigga". This is also why Street Fighter 2 Turbo has such a close resemblance to the Guitar Hero series because of Cliff Bleszinskis influence on each game. It has that level of finesse. He also owns a dinosaur named Muffins.

Because Zombie bat wanted the whole thing as a single thread. That's why?

True story

Gears of war wasn't on neo geo and during that time Epic Megagames didn't start out where it does now.

Wasn't Shigeru Miyamoto inspired to create The Legend of Zelda because of plants/gardens in his desk drawers...?

Hey, Artwark, there's this thing called the internet. Use it to find your so-called "secrets." There's already an interview from way back when where Miyamoto explained where Mario came from. Now please, stop asking stupid questions.

Because if he really wanted to continue to make these threads, I told him that he should at least just make one thread for them. Having one thread is better than having thousands of threads about one subject, really.

There's this thing called the internet and playing the games. Some of this stuff (or a lot of it, really) comes from playing the games.


If you really want this closed, just say the magic words. I'll leave it open to humor you.

Fine, thread closed.

But NO MORE of these threads, ok? This is the final one.

I gave you a chance, and that was shot down by everyone. Heck, even you wanted it closed.
