It’s not hard to walk into a gaming store or section to find piles upon piles of gaming accessories to help you expand your typical gaming experience. Some are good, some are bad, and some are downright ridiculous. This trend of bizarre gaming accessories isn’t new. Companies have been pedaling awkward add-ons since as far back as the Atari days. We have always been marketed unnecessary and overpriced equipment to “help” us experience our consoles in a fresh way, though most of the time it turned out rotten.
Every gamer has a beginning-- a time when they picked up a controller and threw themselves into an alternate reality for the first time. For many of us, Nintendo were the ones who allowed us to first experience such magic with consoles such as the NES, SNES, and Nintendo 64. While their newest console, the Wii U, has had quite a rough beginning, we will always honor and cherish Nintendo for the classic games that they provided us.

Dealing with a superstar older sibling can’t be easy. The constant feeling of being overshadowed by your brother as he saves the princess for the ten millionth time (despite your occasional help) is enough to drive any guy bonkers, but mild mannered Luigi has always kept his cool. He knew someday his time would come. Over the years, Luigi has slowly been coming out of the woodwork, proving he is more than a 2-player sidekick to his brother Mario. He has proven himself to be a hero as equally impressive (though certainly more skittish) as his sibling, and has even starred in his own games. With 2013 being The Year of Luigi, the 30th anniversary of Luigi and his debut in Mario Bros., All That’s Retro is going to take a look back at some of Luigi’s most notable retro appearances in our top 5 retro games featuring the great green plumber and his killer moustache!
