New Super Mario Bros. 2 launched some time ago, bringing an unprecedented emphasis on collecting as many coins as possible in the classic Super Mario Bros. gameplay. Dozens of new items, enemies, and powerups, made the game a lottery like no other, but now a YouTuber by the name of “Some Guy” has turned its gold rush into an obstacle course.

Over the course of nine videos, Some Guy takes on
New Super Mario Bros. 2 from beginning to end without collecting a single coin along the way. Between moments of rouse and respite, Some Guy displays impressive ability at navigating through the Mushroom Kingdom without touching a single gold coin. If you’d like to see his amazing feat for yourself, you can check out his full playlist embedded above.

Our Verdict


Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
