If you can’t tell by now, I like retro video games. Last night I saw something disturbing that I had never seen before. I popped in Mario All Stars for the Super Nintendo. This is the game that includes, Mario 1, Mario Lost Levels, Mario 2 and the ever popular Mario 3 with fully enhanced 16 bit graphics.
I gave Mario 3 a spin and happened to be playing with someone else which necessitated me having to be Luigi. When it cut to Luigi getting to choose which level he wanted to dominate, I stumbled upon something disturbing.
Could I be seeing things? Does Luigi share an uncanny likeness to Mr. Adolph Hitler? Surely if anyone knows the horror of WWII, Japan would be up there. This just begs the unfathomable question, why? He never looked Hitleresque in any other Mario games. Those 16 bits really seemed to help characterize his Jew hating mustache.
