Silly video game companies, E3 starts next week. You've gone and got yourselves confused, haven't you? It's okay though--we'll permit this as long as you're getting it all out of the way early rather than crushing us with a bonus extra heap of them, yes?

If you haven't seen it yet, the best video games thing in the world is the game a group of Japanese gamers created in Super Mario 64. As this video shows, they trigger the 1up mushroom in a level then attempt to frantically collect eight red starts before the mushroom catches up to them. It is amazing and their reactions are hilarious. The best thing of all, though, is around the three-minute mark in this video. Brilliant.
