When you break a game down to simple mechanics such as verbs and nouns, you can see how intricate or simplistic it really is. Mario for example, makes the absolute most out of a very limited amount of action words, leading to a multi-faced, attention-grabbing game that is simple to learn but difficult to master. Over the next three episodes of Game/Show, we will continue to break down the game design genius of the Mario franchise, so please subscribe and let us know what you think in the comments below!
