‘Game of Thrones’ fans: Never forget Arya Stark played ‘Super Mario’ on NES with a bunch of teens
So how did Arya Stark portrayer Maisie Williams fare against Nintendo’s original home console? Let’s just say middle fingers start flying at 3:10.
When Game of Thrones meets Super Mario, confusion ensues
While Arya Stark can best opponents in a sword fight while blind, Maisie Williams has less luck conquering the beast of a console that is the NES. Though at least she is able to beat World 1-1 of Super Mario Bros., unlike that one kid.
Looking back, there’s a lot to laugh at about the original NES: The graphics are basic, the game cartridges’ physical size is laughable and the controller is pretty damn uncomfortable (it’s literally a block with buttons). But here we are, in 2017, still talking about. The VCR-sized box somehow still works, and the games are ancient but fun. They even made Nintendo a truckload of cash last holiday season.
Arya Stark has shown she can handle Super Mario Bros. and avoid death in Game of Thrones. Though let’s see her successfully put in an SNES Classic preorder; then we’ll really be impressed.
