By now, you’re probably already familiar with the fan-made Youtube video that puts Super Mario Bros. in First Person Perspective. It was certainly a novel idea and showed the Mushroom Kingdom as a really beautiful place (not counting the Goombas and the ridiculously large cannons that shoot equally large bullets). Most people will also remember that it’s nausea-inducing, especially when Mario starts jumping around.
Machinima apparently forgot that last part, as they have recently featured a video featuring Mario’s long-time rival mascot, Sonic the Hedgehog, in a first-person perspective version of his videogame’s Act 1.
