What video game does SM64 refer to?

Super Mario 64

SM64 is an acronym that stands for "Super Mario 64," a video game for the Nintendo 64 (N64) gaming console. The game was released in 1996 and is widely regarded as one of the best video games of all time.

Super Mario 64 is the first Super Mario game to feature 3D, open-world gameplay as the player attempts to rescue Peach in her castle from the enemy Bowser. The acronym is only used by gamers, more specifically, N64 gamers. So if you do not play video games, you will most likely never hear or see the SM64 acronym.

Since the N64 console was released in the 1990s, most N64 gamers are older adults who played the game on the original console. However, younger gamers may also play SM64 and other N64 titles through the use of an emulator, which may be hardware or software that mimics the capabilities of the N64 console to play games.
