When I first saw this "Super Mario Ceremony -The 30th Anniversary Medley-", I didn't expect anything special, having seen plenty of video tributes devoted to the plumber before, spliced with gameplay clips, 8-bit transitions, and music from the series' main games.

This is a lot more exciting than that, though! Yes, it's still essentially just gameplay clips backed by remixed songs, but the new arrangements are top notch, and the editing is all slick, full of movement and matching everything with the beat.

Plus, it covers more than the predictable games. Yes, the Super Mario Bros. NES games are there, as are Super Mario World, Super Mario 64, and Super Mario Galaxy, but so are Dr. Mario, Mario & Luigi, Yoshi's Island, Luigi's Mansion, Donkey Kong, Mario Kart, and many others.
