Simplicity and perfection. My childhood was spent playing videogames and reading. The times I spent playing this with my father and sisters are memories I always have with me. The soundtrack to this game also shows a lot of ingenuity on the composers (Koji Kondo) part. You had 5 channels to make audio, there wasn't a real way to play out chords and your sampling memory was super limited. Despite all that, the theme is recognized world wide. Not bad for a 20 year old game.
