    Why is there no credit to Game theory?

    Good ol dave In normal kid friendly things its always fun to find a dark side :P " Do Nintendo games now have that hard, gritty edge you always thought they lacked?" Funny you should ask that while posting a picture of Mario Strikers, based Next Level Games pushed the Mario characters personalities in the gritty direction in those games, goddamn it now your making me more anxious to know what their working on now.

    I don't think I can look at Mario the same anymore XD

    Lol, goes to show that even when we try to make something innocent and kid friendly, applying some more thought and psychology into it might make things seems far more devious and dark XD This theory would also perfectly explain why Luigi is such a wimp,scaredy-cat and nervous wreck: He's TERRIFIED of Mario and his misdeeds, seeing how he grew up with him, he knows and fears him more than anyone else in the Kingdom :P ...Heck, going off on this route, this actually fits perfectly with a fan theory made here in GR not too long ago about Donkey Kong being a despot himself in the DKC games. Being the son of the abused and defeated Cranky kong, and seeing how broken, grouchy and bitter he has become, Donkey Kong decided to vent his frustrations by demanding control of all the bananas found in that island he arrived to. It's a vicious cycle of violence and psychopathy, this.

    Lets take this another step further In the Mario and Luigi games, Luigi seems to have gone to the point where he'll commit anything with Mario just to not be terrified by him. Pleasing his brother every step of the way. Hell, in Dream Team, going to Luigi's conscience you see that his biggest fear is Mario just flat out leaving and forgetting about him.Which only pushes his mentality. Technically by current lore, DK is Cranky's grandson, to which it pushes that Donkey Kong Jr is Cranky's son and DK's father which only begs the question of what happened to said Jr. THE LORE NEVER ENDS

    Fucking dark. I knew Mario might've been fucked up from mushroom based drug abuse, but that, that is just a perfect example of a theory that seems so true. An alternate story might be that while plumbing he snorted mushrooms and now he has taken so many that his vision of the world is bent into the Mushroom Kingdom. He sees sporting events and parties, they see strangely themed hostage negotiations. He sees breaking into Bowsers' castle, defeating him, and rescuing the princess. The see his break into a whorehouse, bloodily murder a pimp, and kidnap a whore. He sees himself as a hero, they see him as the tyrannical ruler of now Mario quarantined New York.
