A quest on acid


Senior Member
In a documentary named "Top 100 Video Games of all Time", they ask many celebrities about their favorite games. In the end of the documentary they choose Super Mario Brothers to be number one, and every one of the guests says his/her opinion about it. one of them was Robin Williams who says "Mario Brothers is basically like a quest on acid." Would you please help me understand what he means?

    "Acid" here means the hallucinogen LSD. Playing Mario Brothers is like undertaking a quest while under the influence of LSD.

    LSD has the word acid in its full chemical name so "acid" became a nickname for LSD in the drug culture. From what I read online, though, it's not actually an acid but, instead, is a weak base.
