The Art of Video Games: “Super Mario 64” Exhibition Video
The Nintendo 64 controller also provided new options for movement throughout the game. Players had greater control over the camera view, and Mario was now able to swim, crawl, climb, grapple, tip-toe, and do a variety of jumps in order to get past obstacles and enemies.
This freedom, combined with a world that was more vivid and “real” than people had seen before, captured the imagination of fans and made this the most beloved “Super Mario” game of all time.
