Below is video that uses the Grand Theft Auto 4 game engine to...well just watch.
Is that not the most cool thing ever? Anyone who has played Mario should get the references, but there is one obscure thing I noticed: "Well, excuse me princess" is actually a line from the terrible Legend of Zelda cartoon that ran loooong ago. I only know this because I read about how bad it is and that was the worst line in the show. I kind of wish I could see it. Anyways, God bless the Mario brothers.
