The Mario Level That Plays Itself
« on: September 11, 2007, 07:41:52 PM »
It's things like this that keep me from losing faith in mankind.

It's an easter egg in a mario game from nintendo, which is designed in such a way that the environmental objects interact in such a way that the player's character will be moved through the entire level to completion, without the player actually ever performing any action with the controller, like a Rube Goldberg machine.  Think of it as a little humorous play on passivity.
