I go back and forth on machinima -- narrative videos made using an existing game's engine. It can be fun seeing a favorite game warped into a story-telling tool, but it's also hard to do in a way that doesn't come off as goofy. The video, which places the characters of the beloved Super Mario Bros. games into the world of Grand Theft Auto IV, gets things more right than I ever would have expected.

This impressive video comes courtesy of The Game Station on YouTube, and that's really all I'm going to say. Just trust me: Watch the whole thing, enjoy the many callbacks to NES-era nostalgia, and try to tell me you wouldn't play this game/watch this movie if it came out. Also, small warning for some harsh language and violence.
