The Youtube account that uploaded all the other cool Nintendo related videos just uploaded NWC footage.

I made a playlist so you can see all 4 clips in order.


The first two minutes of that video are a testament to the absolutely perfect design of SMB. He was able to muddle through the first two sections of World 1 in a way that naturally taught him numerous gameplay concepts (long push to jump higher, sprinting, consecutive jumps on enemies). Miyamoto is a design genius.

I remember people doing the weird hand positioning back then. Usually it was aunts and uncles or some kid who never played a console game before.  Perhaps it had something to do with that is how you would push buttons on an arcade cabinet.
