The Super Nintendo is coming to exploit and corrupt your children!

Posted on August 10, 2011 AT 01:43pm

Retro news stories about video gaming are almost always fun, and this one is no exception. YouTube member Grooveraider posted up a video from 1991 showing parents upset over the impending release of the Super Nintendo, with concerned mothers talking about feeling “exploited” and how they’re going to explain to their children “how people market thing to make you spend more money”.

Also, thanks news station for spoiling the ending to Super Mario World (still listed as “Super Mario Bros. 4″ in the version they were showing) you jerks!
