Super Mario World is one of the best games of all time. It’s also one of the shortest, if you know a few tricks.

This is one of those games that I buy every single time Nintendo re-releases it on a new platform, which is pretty damn often. I just can’t help myself. And every time I buy it on a new platform—most recently Nintendo’s handheld 3DS system, where it’s joined by a host of other old Super Nintendo ports—I beat the game in the fastest way possible just to soak up the nostalgia.

Gamer Next Door Pamela Horton and I enjoy that soak in the video above. Go blue Yoshi!
