Some time in the late 80s or early 90s, my sister and I beat Super Mario Bros. for the first time. I recall the fire pits and those little axes that Bowser would throw/spin toward my Mario character, and I remember it driving me insane. I must have died a hundred deaths by those axes. I'm glad no one has ever thrown an ax at me in real life. I'd be a goner for sure.
After we beat the game, I went nuts with excitement. I remember running through our house and yelling to my mom while she was in the shower that we beat the game. I don't think she cared as much as I did.
Nevertheless, still a proud achievement of mine.
