Mario Kart is arguably one of Nintendo's most popular video game series, right beside the likes of Super Smash Brothers, Legend of Zelda, Kirby, Star Fox, and so forth.

Mario Kart has made its debut in 1992, celebrating its twenty-year anniversary around 2012, and within all these years, many titles had been released on this series; few of the more notable ones would be Mario Kart 64, Mario Kart: Double Dash!, Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart 7, and Mario Kart 8.

Of all games that we have tried from this series of video games, which one do we feel stood out to us most, and how so? Almost each and every Mario Kart title has a feature exclusive to itself for distinguishing purposes, and from them all, which feature do we find ourselves favoring more? In future, what kind of MK mechanic would we like to see Nintendo introduce?

Before I went to actual Go-Karting, I told my friends "If I'm as bad at this as I am at Mario Kart, then you're all screwed." Turns out I'm even worse at real-life go-karting XD

Mario Kart is a really fun game to play with friends. It's one of the few racing games (if not the only one) I actually enjoy, since it's so simple yet the worlds are so detailed and pretty. Though me and my brother/cousin have fought quite a bit over it XD

My favorite character is definitely Waluigi. Not only is the tallest (just like I am), but I play him in every Mario title ever - Mario Kart, Mario Party, Mario Tennis, etc. I haven't played MK8 but I think the best addition would be the blue shell. It definitely is a table turner and lets the losing payers get a lead in the race :D

Overall the franchise brings a competitive and genuinely genre in a way no other game world could, which makes it a must-have for all Nintendo home consoles.

Mario Kart is one of the few games I can play for hours at a time without getting bored. I love Mario Kart, even though I only own the handheld versions. Mario Kart DS is definitely at the top of my list, as I have far more experience playing it than I do any other installment in the series. One of the big things I like about it over Mario Kart 7 is the fact that it has single-player versus mode, because I didn't have internet at home until after DS Wi-Fi was shut down, and local multiplayer is very limited on DS. I never get tired of leaving the computers in my dust on that game :D

In future Mario Kart games, I'd like to see the tracks become more difficult as the engine class becomes more difficult, like having no obstacles on 50cc, some obstacles on 100cc, and lots of obstacles or something on 150cc.

Mario Kart Wii, 7, and 8 are the best ones so far. DS was alright, Double Dash was a cool idea but the roads all felt like soap. 64 was good too but lacks a lot of what we have today, but that's ok, in its time it was amazing.

Mario Kart is an amazing game, I love it! My favorite thing about is it's one of those rare games that you can ask your friends to play with you, whether they like video games or not. That's a valuable aspect in a video game these days, and Mario Kart definitely has it. I played the older versions a few times, but that was back when I played solely as Luigi. With the newer versions, my main switches from Daisy to Rosalina; they're both so cute. <3

It's always a good time when you race with your best friend for hours on end and keep score of who's won the most. Makes a Saturday afternoon special!

As for my favorite soundtrack in the game, Rainbow Road is probably at the top of my list, but honestly most of them will pleasant to listen to. It's common for me to mute the game I'm playing and turn on my own music from my phone or computer, but this game was an exception. I'm not a huge fan of video game soundtracks, so that's a rare occurrence for me, haha.

Mario Kart is one of my first video game series that I cherish to this day; it made me consider taking go-karting as a career, if my hometown held any go-kart racing that is. Who could forget about the tracks, the items, and the music. I own all 8 installments of the series. Mario Kart DS, 7, and 8 are competing for the best of the series, since they include the best features.

The Mario Kart games are so good! I think MK8 is their best so far. The moment I started it up and the pretty bright visuals appeared on screen I knew I was in for a ride. Actually I think I was blinded for a bit because I played it in a dark room The game just feels so polished. That, and the music's just so good! uvu

The best part is when they end up loving it afterwards!

When it comes to the game in the Mario Kart series, I have played Mario Kart 64, Mario Kart DS, Mario Kart Wii, and Mario Kart 7. When it comes to the Mario Kart game that stood out the most for me, it would have to be Mario Kart 64 since it was the first one I played.

To me, Mario Kart 64 stood out the most, more than Mario Kart DS or 7, because it was the first Mario Kart game I played and therefore has a special place in me.

I enjoy playing MK64 from time to time, although the first that I bought was MK7, subsequently followed by MK8 which was a visual masterpiece. That, plus the amazing online racing and DLC made it wonderful to play.

Speaking of the DLC, I cannot wait for May when the next pack releases!!!

Mario Kart Wii is the one I've played the most because my friend has it and we played at his house during parties ALL the time, but Mario Kart 8 is my favorite. Anti-gravity was pretty cool and I enjoyed the Zelda DLC. Link looks really funny in a Kart too with his knees sticking out.

Mario Kart is like Mario Party for me. I am less and less into it.
Mario Kart mostly because I feel it's still the same thing as ever...
(and honnestly, although I always loved mario kart, I prefer Diddy Kong Racing...)

Going with the consensus that Mario Kart is a classic amongst gamers and non-gamers. It's definitely one of those games that brings everyone together with a little friendly competition. My favourite being the SNES, N64 and GC versions.

My boyfriend and I thought it'd be a wonderful idea to have Double Dash!! emulated so we could play together because we're long distance. We warned each other about how intense and competitive we could get with racing games. Still ended up screaming profanities and cusses with a crap ton of trash talking during our games, haha.
