Very accurate, aside from the bedsheets and plush channels for me.


rewplaysgames

Same. I was a teen back during the 00s, I imagine if I was younger I'd probably have begged my parents for those sheets haha.


MyPhoneIsNotChinese

Same


UpbeatCon2492

Very accurate except for bed sheets and plush channels for me.


T-I-G

Certain_Ring8907

For me it was Bowser Power and That Mario Guy


SupsMasPlusMas

I love BowserPower! He recently rebooted his channel but it’s not the same :(


umbre04_

Mine was MegaBlueMario, SuperMarioRichie, and EpicMarioBros… only SuperMarioRichie is still active tho, and MegaBlueMario is now known as StarHead, and he makes mario 64 shorts…


LordMegatron11

Same here except i didnt do fan made games either


Thepolarity2008

Remember when SML was actually enjoyable to watch?


ToraThePillowCuddler

I want a lolipop


Thepolarity2008

Shut up Luigi, I'm bored!


ToraThePillowCuddler

Me too and I want a lolipop


Thepolarity2008

**Groans**


FixedFun2

lately I've been hearing a lot of SML and SMG complains, good thing my 2000's self avoided them lol


MacpedMe

He tried to remake his old style with bowser’s plan and the return of mama luigi- too bad the modern day fans didnt like it


Meester_Tweester

One of the first YouTube channels I watched. It was so funny Toad getting beat up. Since I just started playing Mario during that time, that was my perception of Toad for a while.


SuperT3

I was never a huge fan but it had it's funny moments. I loved the Doofy the Dragon segments the most. But everything went downhill when HE WHO SHALL NOT ME NAMED joined the show.


Krome_Dome_97

Yup, that was me, except for the bedsheets.


onetoothpig

Ah, It's Freakin' Mario. Jeremy Simms' flash animations were and still are a hoot to watch.


thejude555

Super Mario 63 was the shit


ToraThePillowCuddler

I remember the file select theme https://youtu.be/4rF1azhAsS0


Shadowed_MC

I never watched those YouTube channels or animations (although I did watch a different plush channel) but other than that this is essentially what my childhood was like.


ssslitchey

Throw in mario creepy pastas and this was basically my entire childhood.


Jefflez

I'd count Super Mario Bros Z. Ik technically "sprite animations" but SMBZ is too good for that


MisterJoshie

I remember there being a “I need a hero” music video for this internet series but it must’ve been deleted but it’s cemented in my mind to this day. What a series 😂


Dean0Rocks316

https://youtu.be/CLTyCzg33QE Is it this one?


MisterJoshie

Wow god damn there it is, two thousand views?? That’s crazy considering haha. Weird to think I contributed to one of those views 13 years ago. Thank you for finding that video, deffo scratched the itch I had in my brain for a longtime!


Turbobist28

Damn, I feel old.


bitemydickallthetime

mario 64 old? super mario old? or OLD old?


Turbobist28

Yes.


Lisbon_Mapping

Ah yes, that classic video game Super Mario.


Gemidori

Almost entirely accurate lol


XenoBound

Didn’t have the bedsheets but I *did* have a massive Mario figure and plush collection. Think I was aiming for getting literally any Mario character I could find lol. Also wanted to get anything I saw in those old-school Mario plush skit videos.


ToraThePillowCuddler

If you don't mind me asking, what did you have?


XenoBound

Pretty much any character from the Wii era games. Galaxy was big at that time so they released some figure lines I snapped up. A lot of TOMY and Popco stuff! The main cast in the platformers I had tons of, but also many characters playable in spin-offs: koopas, dry bones, boos, magikoopas, toads, goombas, babies, even some kongs, and many more. Chances are, if they were in Mario Kart Wii or Super Sluggers, I had merch of them!


Seymour-Krelborn

Same


OmegaMaverickZ

Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom, anyone?


ToraThePillowCuddler

Classic


Maleficent_Peach_46

I was a teenager in the 2000s so didn't have any Mario bedsheets or watch the YouTube Channels. I did own the games listed and both systems (Which I still own) though and child me did have Super Mario Pyjamas.


Sapphixvampire

Gamecube, Wii and DS I owned all 3 games plus Sunshine and Double Dash And I watched those sprite animations


Sir_Super_Sean

*So I’m not the only one…* I remember sitting at the old laggy computer trying so hard to beat Mario Bros. Crossover all those years ago


KadeWad3

Mario Crossover was fantastic, just wish flash wasn’t gone so I could play it.


Theworldisflat55

There’s a html 5 version of the game. It’s still on the web if you want to play it! also if you want to play Flash games again then I would highly suggest you download “Blue Maxima Flashpoint”, it’s a archive of a huge amount of flash games from back in the day! You can still play them now if you download it!


DaKardii

Owned all of those systems except the GameCube. Did not have a Mario-themed bed. Don’t watch either of those channels, but I do watch SMG4. Owned all of those games. Didn’t play any of those fan games, but I did play others like Mario Forever. Watched a boatload of sprite movies.


amethystedge722

Aside from the bedsheets this is accurate, I remember goin back and watching Power Star and Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom on Newgrounds all the time back then, also got to play NSMB during a doctor’s appointment once so I could calm down my nerves lol


PSFreeThrowaway

this also qualifies as the early 2010s pack in my experience


AnthonyDaBest

All of this applies to me with the exception of the bedsheets.


Jefflez

That's a core memory unlocked


SuperIsaiah

replace SML with SMG4


emojii_xoxo

I did almost all of this except the bedsheet and the YouTube channels. my brother watched those, not me. I was always more interested in the games xD


MatildeLover128

I became a fan in 2012 and became obsessed in 2013-2015. I mostly played the 2000s games.


Bryanx64

Did not watch the sprite animation, or have those bed sheets, and never even heard of those YT channels. I did play Super Mario Crossover on like Newgrounds or wherever it was😂


Japhet0912

Let's see here . I owned a wii and ds . I watched sprite animations . I watched plush channels . I don't think I had a mario theme bed but it seems possible . I don't remember whether I played flash games or not . I did own NSMB and MKWii but I didn't own super mario galaxy I skipped it and bought galaxy 2 instead


Mario6416

And there's the part in the 2010s where you see Sonic and think "Oh hey that guy's cool", and then you see the death battle and now want him dead.


MacpedMe

Superdentbros, goomzilla, Rip dent


AB365_MegaRaichu

Mario 63 was the GOAT tho


slippahMASTAH

For Me: - Consoles owned: Wii and DS - Channels watched: Mario 64 Machimas (MarioMario54321, TMKC) - Sprite animation: Super Mario Bros. Z - Played every flash game mentioned in the post


MarioKid3200

I actually have that exact blanket and pillow covers... ...and I still use them


Sea-Middle-7594

Wow take me back man


Polovolt_3

The only thing that doesn’t apply to me here is the bed. Other than that , it’s accurate


Dil_2401

All except the bedsheets


SpringPlush_and_Me

bro you had to own at least a mario or luigi plush with the hat taken off so you can have them hatless lol


MrMario63

I fucking love Mario 63! Hence my username…


Alopex_31

I had a white DS Lite, and I played a lot of NSMBDS and MKDS


ksanthecat

If you grew in the 2000's and looked up for Mario on YouTube. ***YOU MUST KNOW ABOUT SUPER MARIO BROS Z***


realbread23

Perfectly described me, Wii, Mario and Luigi bed sheets, loved SML, had Galaxy 1 and 2, Kart, NSMB Wii and Super Paper Mario, watched all the dorkly Mario videos as well as Nicobbq and Dr Wily on YT, and those 3 flash games are all of the ones I played plus Koopas Revenge. Man I wish I could go back


TotoShampoin

Me, but I watched SMG4 actually Also no blanket :(


vegeta-fan-1000

I still watch SML today.


hgilbert_01

Thanks, OP, very clever. This mostly accounts for me. A flash game I remember playing was actually called Super Mario 65, lol. It was a side-scrolling game, I believe, where the castle’s field was a hellscape desolated by Bowser. Mario had FLUDD too.


MyPhoneIsNotChinese

Wasn't it super mario 63? At least in 63 he also had FLUDD


Porsche_carrera_gt

ALL TRUE DID THEM ALL BUT YOU DIDNT ADD THE POPCO FIGURES AND FAST FOOD TOYS


Solukisina

Never had Mario Kart Wii as a kid but that's mostly because I played it somewhere else and didn't know about the tilt controls so I was wondering why I wasn't going where I should have and decided right there and then that Mario Kart Wii was the worst game ever made and I never cared about watching videos of it online so I convinced myself that it was one of the worst in the series for years.


No_Head_2746

Damn my childhood


UnknownEXEGamin

I had the same bed


Tofu-Lad

I literally did all of this except have the Mario bedsheets. I had all those consoles too btw


crfnalti

What the fuck this is accurate How'd you get in my house


ZDog64

Hey! That’s me!


Alwayssome1

Man oh man, don’t forget the Sanei LB plushies!


Capable-Monk-4820

That is very accurate, I also watched dvds of the old DIC Mario cartoons as well. Mario was also the reason I got introduced to YTPs. Who remembers an old plush video called Mario and Luigi goes to Burger King?


Best-Awesome-Ocelot

Honestly super accurate for me (I had all the consoles) except the bedsheets and owning Mario galaxy as I borrowed it from thr library as a kid and died in the electric part and the Mario became a skeleton when he died and I got scared and didn’t play again for like a decade…


LevelSimple1209

Yep, pretty much me in spades.


Ok_ThisIsMe

If you merged this Mario starterpack with "growing up with Sonic as a 2000s kid" that sums my childhood lol.


ihatewiiplaymotion

You forgot the ~~best~~ worst Mario flash game! Unfair Mario


Myth_5layer

You know I watched the castle calamity growing up. Might do it again.


LacklusterSandwich22

i had those exact bedsheets for the first 12 years of my life lmao


AmyTheBrawler

I watched the blooper sprite animations as a child. It was hilarious when Homer's voice would come out of Mario when he stabbed his "Chain Chomps" on the flag pole. Unfortunately, I can't find the video anymore.


Ulths

Shit, am I a fake fan? Literally only owned the Wii, DS and the games, but none of the others


rwol8690

Stop making me feel old


Alm8360NoScoPro

One for the niche, but spending all the money you had exchanging coins to collect the Tomy and Gacha capsules whether it was keychains, or stickers. My days were spent walking 20 minutes to the store and not even entering it, just spending the 5$ I got cleaning my uncle's car on the new Mario Keychains. Those were the days..


GcubePlayer8w

Where’s the cheapest coffin I could buy


DajuanKev

I feel like the SP should have been given recognition. That handheld was special, bruh. They felt limited like you had to get them quick.


[deleted]

Scarily accurate.


maxler5795

If i had a penny for every time i played the mario game on friv.com id buy out nintendo and make a good online service. Then buy out sega to release the yakuza games on switch. Now what do i do with the remaining trillion dollars...


PikachutheCritic

Owned the Wii, watched cute Mario bros first at 6 or 7 and discovered SML I think when I was 9 however, all I played was Pokémon emulators on the computer.


BAG42069

If you had a ds you probably had at least 6 of them


Meester_Tweester

Awesome :) I was 9 in 2009 and although we didn't own the home consoles that was when I started being a Mario fan.


gordanphilyar

You're just kidding Mario RPG


albugina

This is me


TheBlaxicanDude

I had and did all of these things as a little kid except the mario bed. (NSMB was my first Mario Game.)


Seymour-Krelborn

Extremely accurate


hajileeyeslech

Replace the YT channels with Goomzilla and this is accurate to me.


ImposterDittoM

Almost all of this is me holy shit


JakeSnake161

This is me except the bed, the channels, only owned nsmb ds, and the Mario sprite animations.


BowsElisa

Almost all of them are true for me, just the sheets and the channels because I didn't really want YT


AnneTheOminous

OMG YES, that was me when I was a kid!


umbre04_

Anyone remember the “cooking with chef mario” plush vids by SuperMario134??? That, along with “Super Mario Bros: Bowser’s Revenge” by Talha Aamir and “bowsers mushroom factory” by Goomzilla are the og mario plush vids… Links: https://youtu.be/f6hZv5r5aDc https://youtu.be/ovOc6qo3X5Q https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLTx0xhx7Pysxj4rzohdNd9C4aBaBP-8yp


Ewreckedhephep

I had an extremely laggy computer so I complete Mario 63 in slow motion. The extra reaction time helped.


VirtualRelic

I’m glad to be in the 90s camp if this is really the 2000s starter pack


ResponsibleAnything8

Ok Old Man👍


Monsieur_Swag

I miss CMB... they're like weird and sorta cringey now


KelloPudgerro

u forgot ''being quite extremely into MCU and eugenics''
