Face it. No matter how dedicated and/or certifiably mental you are there is absolutely no way you can play all the games that Mother Software produces from her cavernous womb. You're never going to sample every level that gaming has to offer. And that's a real bummer, because there are plenty that absolutely must be played. Like the 59 levels we heartily recommend right here, in fact, that we feel every gamer should experience before they expire.
Understand that this isn't simply a list of gaming's best levels - sure some are works of inimitable design genius, but some, well, just demand attention for other reasons. And to illustrate the merits of each entry, there's a movie to compliment the words.
From the outstanding to the outlandish, the exceptional to the emotional, hit the links below to see which 59 levels you really should play before you die. And if anyone's already played them all, well, you can die with a sense of fulfilment.
