In honor of the 30th birthday of Super Mario Bros., which was released in Japan on Sept. 13, 1985, Digg made a pretty cool video showing how our red-suited plumber friend has evolved over the years.

I know what you’re thinking: Digg is still around?

Yes, apparently. And they’ve managed to cram all of the 200+ video games that Mario has appeared in into a compilation clip that runs 4 minutes and 33 seconds—from Donkey Kong (1981) to Super Mario Maker (2015) and everything in between.

It’s killer nostalgia porn for gamers who grew up in any of the last three decades.
