When I manage to pull off some tricky flying patterns in Super Mario World, it makes me feel the man.

Super Mario Land - the last level, the chicken firing cloud mini boss and Tatanga (final boss) is very satisfying to beat and the end music is just sublime.

The opening level from Mario 64 , realising that it WAS possible to successfully translate a game from the second to the third dimension.

The map screen in Super Mario Land 2 and its many quirks, such as getting shrunk and being eaten by the giant turtle.

The first time I completed the rivet screen on Donkey Kong, rarely have I had such a feeling of accomplishment from an arcade game.
HADDOCKEN!

Realising with each new iteration that Mario games can transcend technological advances without losing the charm of the original, and in fact make new players yearn to play the original and still enjoy it. Sure, it's not for everyone, but then neither is coffee.

When I played Super Mario World for the first time. It was the first 16-bit game I played on my brand new SNES. The transition from 8-bit to 16-bit Mario was just astonishing when I saw it for the first time with my own eyes. The colors were so bright, the animation was so smooth and the music just sung from my SNES. Even with the upgrades the game still felt as good as the very first Super Mario Bros.

For me it would have to be the pirate ship level on SM3 - took me AGES to finish that but I felt realy satisfied (and slightly moist in my undercrackers) when I finally did :D

I know it'll sound strange, but just the memories of playing Mario Golf: Advance Tour on the GBA in the garden, at just the right angle to the sun. That game absolutely captivated me from start to finish & is easily one of my favourite portable games of all time.
