You can’t have a new Nintendo Console without a Mario Kart game, and when Nintendo was making the Wii version of the series, they definitely did not disappoint. Building on the fast-paced, but still arcade-styled racing gameplay, and the online functionality that was introduced in Mario Kart DS; Mario Kart Wii definitely brought the Mario Kart game to a whole new level.

Mario Kart Wii is probably my favorite Mario Kart game. I just have a lot of history with it (especially with the guys and gals of CrystalStarStudio and the Blargg Pit community), and just brought a lot to the table when it released, in the form of time trial leaderboards, solid & accessible online, and just the classic Mario Kart gameplay that always come with a solid Mario Kart title. So safe to say, I was looking forward to coming back to this game for the playthrough. Let’s get ready to race once again!

Mario Kart had never been on handheld before, and with the rising popularity of the Game Boy Advance, a handheld installment was definitely not a shot in the dark. Although it would lack some of the more desirable features of a Mario Kart game, being on the Game Boy Advance and all, it still provided the basics of what makes Mario Kart…well…Mario Kart!

I had enjoyed going through the Mario Kart games in order, but that meant after Mario Kart 64, I would need to start taking on Super Circuit next. Although it is my least favorite game of the entire series, I can’t say too much negative about this game, because it was very limited on what it could accomplish as a Mario Kart game. The Game Boy Advance was cool and all, but it just couldn’t provide the core excellent multiplayer that we’ve come to love from the series.

Mario and his friends sure love to have a good race, and after the success of Super Mario Kart on the SNES, Nintendo was happy to keep the engines going on their next console. Mario Kart 64 brought some new and really innovative tracks and reworked a classic arcade racer into a multiplayer fun-fest. I hope you guys are ready to race, because lakitu is about to wave that checkered flag.

Although Super Mario Kart was my entrance into the Mario Kart series, I feel like this title is what completely sealed myself into loving it. Because of this, how could I not do it? Now if you will excuse me, I think Princess Peach just threw a red shell at me and now I need to knock her off the Wario Stadium jump.

What happens when you take a racing game and fill it with all kinds of Mario characters and items? You get a recipe for absolute chaos! The Mario Kart series is known for being one of the most addictive Mario spin-offs you can ever find and this is a statement that was still true even for its first installment.

As much as I love the Mario Party series, I was running out of Mario Party games to play on my channel. As a result, I decided to go to another spin-off to get my fix. Mario Kart is a series I’ve been playing since my youth, even being the owner of the very first Mario Kart game which I played religiously with my father. Although I can’t promise any narrow-margin victories like we’ve seen in Mario Party, this race does get extremely intense!
