The first video game that I played on a console was Mario. The adventures of this short Italian plumber fascinated so much that I would end up losing a few one-rupee coins every day. One rupee was that the video parlours charged for one game, and I was never able to go beyond the fire dragon stage. Today, all of sudden, I tried to recall my favourite video games--Super Mario was the first followed by Pacman and Prince of Persia (older versions). I played the latter two on old IBM machines that accepted large-format, thin floppies.
I tried to search Mario so that I could get back into those good old days when all that I cared for was games and fun. The most immediate way of getting to listen to the ever-so-familiar music of the video game is to play it 0n the Web.
If you are also a fan of Mario, you can download various Mario remakes for installing on your Windows PC. One of them is Super Mario Forever.
Secret Maryo: This cousin of Mario is an multi-platform open source reincarnation of the popular video game character. Secret Maryo is available for download for Windows, Ubuntu, Gentoo, Fedora, Open Suse, Debian and lot more.
Super Tux: Even if you are not a fan of Tux, you are bound to like this Mario-like game. Like Secret Maryo, Super Tux is available for multiple platforms including Windows, Ubuntu and various other Linux distributions and Mac.
Keep Mario on your desktop: You can also plaster your desktop with a Super Mario Brothers wallpaper that will always remind you of the good old days that you enjoyed with Mario and your other friends. If you wish to enjoy Pacman, you can do that online at Free Pacman.
