One of my many passions in life is history—specifically, the history of video games. Not only is it fascinating to see how the industry developed over time, it also helps our understanding of why video games are what they are today. There are a handful of games that really stand out as being influential to the popularity of video games as a form of entertainment. Super Mario 64 is just one of these titles. Recently, a couple of early Super Mario 64 images were unearthed in an old patent for the Nintendo 64. These are currently the earliest known images of the game, giving us a rare glimpse into what Nintendo was planning for Peach’s Castle at the time.
