$5 Mario Game Sounds Worth The Investment

Sometimes, you need to spend millions of dollars on CG trailers, magazine advertisements and TV commercials to sell a game. And sometimes you need to just tell a story straight from the heart.

This craigslist ad for a used Game Boy copy of Super Mario Land sounds worth the $5 asking price just to share old war stories with the owner, whose sales pitch includes stuff like:

Here are some memorable quotes from people in my life who witnessed me playing this game frantically and relentlessly at all hours of the day and night:

“Go to bed!” – Mpm

“Please turn that off and come eat dinner.” – Mom

“Did you just throw your Game Boy against the wall?” – Mom

“I’m taking this away from you.” – Mom

And also:

Listen, there are 4 worlds, each containing 3 levels, and they’re not going to be conquering themselves any time soon since I became addicted to the internet and don’t have time to be saving Daisy’s sorry arse anymore.

The seller is in Austin. $5 is $5.
