I think people experiencing this, myself included, should post about it to Miiverse. Maybe Nintendo will notice and work on a patch. They seem to pay attention to what people post on Miiverse (Of course...emailing them might be just as effective...)
I know you are saying it just takes some adjustment, but its incredibly frustrating to me. I completely stopped playing all of the SMB challenges due to it. --- Playing Pokemon Y -- 3DS FC: 4296 4405 8727 -- Safari: Tangela / Ivysaur / Quilladin NintendoID: the1graz
There is something like a frame or two of input lag, but that's enough to completely screw everything up. Took me forever to nail some of the rainbow challenges. --- *Casts Doom on everything* You all must now feel the pain that I have felt...DIE!
It lags for me too, and I was watching the GamePad, not my TV screen. I just played the NES game, and there is a noticeable difference in response between the two games. I was able to manage, but it was annoying to someone like me who is a veteran on the NES game. --- "When will then be now? Soon."
Obviously the gamepad lags, it's streaming video to the gamepad. The gamepad will always lag behind whats on your TV screen (unless you have a particularly laggy TV). You notice it the most in games that require more precision in their controls, like SMB.
I'm 31 as well, so I know how it should feel and I notice it in SMB, without question when attempting last second jumps. It's not my TV because I have SMB on my Wii emu and it works perfect. --- Check out this sweet box fort I made. Dare I say, 'World's Greatest' :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Jo57wauuvA
Can also confirm, the game is laggy. Yes, the gamepad has a minimal amount of inherent lag, but as stated before, the VC version of SMB plays pretty much flawlessly. I had to retry about 20 times the first time I did a full SMB level because my jumps weren't nearly as responsive as they should be.

In the Mario Bros. Arcade Game - yes. SMB - Not really
I thought maybe it was because that game just has poor controls in general. I am not that familiar with this version which seems different from the SMB3 version and the version included with all of the GBA games --- 3DS friend code: 1075-0729-0396 Currently Playing: Othello, Dominos, Chinese Checkers
