Super Mario Brothers

by ebreilly

“Finding a flow” doesn’t happen immediately.  As a new player to a game, your first objective is usually to better understand the goal and rules of the game.  Games are often iterative; you experiment the way you play through trial and error.  In Super Mario Brothers, players learn to run, jump and stomp on enemies in the different worlds while unlocking surprises to power up and keep moving forward.  Over time, often, cooperation and tips from other players help improve your strategy and skills in the game.  Then, all of a sudden, you realize time has slipped away because you’re in flow; you understand the rules of the game, you have better strategies and skills, and now feel you can conquer this world with your friends.
