Not entirely 8-bit but we don’t mind making exceptions. Below you can check out video of a PC port of Super Mario Bros. 3 by the team behind Doom. At the time of the port, back in 1990, the developers from id Software were known as IFD. They had created this PC port, submitted it to Nintendo, but were¬†rejected because Nintendo was focused on building games for their own hardware. Makes sense. Either way, I think Nintendo did just fine. 1990 is about the time I submitted a few game ideas to Nintendo – all of which were rejected. But in Nintendo’s defense…I was 9. [via The¬†Verge]
