Proposed Addition to "Impact and Legacy"[edit]

Gabe Newell, co-founder of Valve Corporation, has called Super Mario 64 his favorite game of all time, saying that while Doom convinced him that video games were the future of entertainment, it was Super Mario 64 that convinced him that video games were art.[1]

Recently Translated 1996 Developer Interviews[edit]

On September 2016, Shmuplations has recently translated a bunch of Japanese Super Mario 64 Dev Interviews into English: http://shmuplations.com/mario64/ Yoshiman6464 (talk) 04:05, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

There doesn't seem to be a source. The interviews are awesome, but we at least need to know where that were originally published :s ~Mable (chat) 23:25, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Super Mario 64 in speedrunning[edit]

Super Mario 64 is and has been for a number of years the most popular video game in the speedrunning scene. It is also a very popular in Tool-Assisted speedrunning. While I do understand that there are separate articles detailing those facts, I still think there should be at least a small section mentioning the game's popularity in that category of gaming. -Hiddenvoice (talk) 21:48, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

List of video games notable for speedrunning is currently the article describing the Super Mario speedrunning community in general. There is, of course, also this one, which I greatly regret ever making... Lastly, there's the distinct article on Pannenkoek2012. I can imagine two or three lines in the article, one of which linking to the list of video games subsection, the last one linking to Pannenkoek2012. I don't think a full section is really needed, for the same reason that a full section in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time or Dark Souls isn't needed. ~Mable (chat) 09:53, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

Super Mario FX?[edit]

The first paragraph of the development section seems somewhat confusing. It states that a game titled Super Mario FX was in development for the SNES and continues on that train of thought, but then a few sentences later there's the revelation that Super Mario FX, at least the title, was referring to the Super FX technology and was never actually a game. So does that mean that this game was never in development for the Super NES? --Deathawk (talk) 03:01, 16 September 2017 (UTC)


Nothing in the reference provided actually says that "Super Mario FX" was actually in development, they merely say that ideas they had during the making of Star Fox influenced the development of Super Mario 64. Maybe "Super Mario FX" is being confused with Yoshi's Island, which does use the Super FX chip. 2A02:8109:1EBF:D917:D862:3BEB:B2D1:F220 (talk) 21:52, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
