The Topics

The Top 7… things you didn't realise the PS2 did first
Vertical console stands are visionary, right?


Fallout: New Vegas REVIEW
Despite all the radioactive bugs, wandering the wasteland is still great


Vanquish REVIEW
Gears of War meets superfast, high-octane robo-ferocity


An excellent alternative, but it's not a clear-cut victory over UFC


Super Meat Boy REVIEW
The hardest game you'll ever love


What was your first Mario game?
Didn’t you hear? In the wake of our exhaustive 10 years of PS2 celebration we nearly forgot the NES and Super Mario Bros. turned 25 years old this week, too… Whoops? We honestly can’t fathom there are any of you reading these wordz who haven’t encountered the fat little Italian with the invincible head at some point by now, so we want to know what Mario game broke your cherry, and when. Do not be ashamed to say Mario Party – we’re well aware of our age differences. Let us know in the forums and we might read your answer LIVE on TalkRadar 125!
