It was a legitimate enough run for my satisfaction, so I feel pretty damn good now. First, I was emulating and saved my state at the beginning of every world, but I did not puss out and constantly reload when I died. Second, I have never done the "many-lives" trick in world 3-1, so I saved just before then so I could practice it. Once I got it down, I kept forward.
I warped from 1-2 to 3-1, then I skipped any further warps and played through to the end. I got to see a lot of the game I've rarely seen before, so this was a good experience!

I tried Metroid, but the genre has progressed so much, I don't really like it. Super Metroid is where I'll leave that.
Mega Man and Mario 3 are worthy suggestions though, and I may try out TMNT, the one with the impossible water level, instead of arcade.
I'm taking up
