How Mario Kart Encourages You to Suck

2212 ratings | 87356 views
Games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Party and Smash Bros (with items) discourage competition. Nintendo needs to make it easier for players to git g00d or however the kids say it.

I don't think I ever experienced this curve in Mario Kart 8. and I'm really good. When I play online I usually stay top 2. I'm not trying to brag, i literally suck at all video games but I Mario kart 8 I'm just always up there both online and against all my friends and don't remember ever experiencing "punishment" for getting good. You just have to use your items wisley, and know the tracks well to drift at every opportunity you can, along with using shortcuts, plus picking the kart optionsthat works best for you :)

Why do people say "mairio"?

_How to win Mario Kart:_ _#1: Stay at the starting line, and let everyone else pass you. When the person in first place passes you going into their lap 2, start driving._ _#2: Make sure to hit an item box. You will get either a Bullet Bill or Golden Mushroom._ _#3: Begin closing distance. This will happen extremely quickly._ *_#4: Win._*

Honestly, the Blue Shell ruins Mario Kart for me, SuperMario Kart was a decent racing game but since 64 introduced the Blue Shell its more of a party game.

Mario Kart double dash isn’t like this but I find that Mario Kart Wii multiplies it by over 9000

We all say Mario Kart is crazy and super chaotic, but that chaos is the way the game's balanced. ._.
painterjosh (1 month ago)
XDDD yes, it's very annoying. But c'mon! It's Mario Kart, it's thought to be frustrating! x'd
Ethan Swartz (1 month ago)
It's not balanced when your hit with 5 items all in a row on 200CC which the game isn't even made for

One thing i hate about spatoob 2 is that wen you play online you could be level 5 and go against someone who is level 83 there should be a system where low level players a mached up with other low level payers and high level players get mached up with other high level players eather that or i just suck
Nick Alessio (4 months ago)
I know my grammer is horrible in this but im not going to fix it because it is funny

I had mario kart 8 deluxe but then i got rid of it because i was sick of it being really unfair

Mario kart 8 is sooo hard I used to play mk 64.

This game is rediculously easy to master

Never leave 2nd until the last lap. You always have one mirror at 150 and should smoke the rest. Online, you gotta go...damn Japanese.

I for one am glad that Mario Kart On-line doesn't have voice-chat, or any other form of manual text input... I can but imagine what things people are screaming at their screens when getting blue-shelled'...
Nate Hollingsworth (5 months ago)
You've just got to drive right against the edge and the red shells will miss. Also take different path when the road splits
Albert Steel (5 months ago)
I think MK could be fixed like this: The red shell,instead of going to a player,it continues on the middle of the road,so players go on the other lane to avoid it. The blue shell could be replaced with an item like “Slow bomb” that makes the 3 first racers slow down their top speed for 10 seconds.
Dalton Zona (5 months ago)
I wish they had a game mode where every mystery box was a mushroom. Thus allowing for the skill of boosting over turns but making it so friends can actually see who's the best.

It is frustrating when all you want is to add 100 points a day online. Or, wait, getting less points than the player below you when they have less total points than you! Peace out Mr Wulff.

Nothing worse then lapping my gf in hyrule castle and then being hit with a blue shell she was given for going the wrong way for a lap and sucking :/

In Mario Kart 64 I feel like you just should literally ignore all items, it's all about routing.
snakevenom56 (7 months ago)
When you've got games like Sonic and All stars racing transformed, you realize one thing *Mario Kart isn't fun anymore*

I think Mario kart is fun even a blue shell destroy me in a race...
Jon Idoncair (7 months ago)
gamexplain had a vid showing luigi being controlled by A.I. for the player and they did literally nothing the whole run and got 1st place............ another vid same shit happened for a mario party game, sooo yeah wulf is right. nintendo's games fuck over skilled players
y_m_o (7 months ago)
The only thing I hate about this game is sometimes it feels like the game takes over control. Especially when I want to take a sudden turn when your at those points with a choice of two paths to take. It feels weird and can't explain it. Just feels like the game controls your character for a few seconds. Oh and getting damn coins with every powerup gets old fast.

I hate it when you’re first and doing well, then get Red Shell’d and drop to eighth. -.-
Oakley Hawkes (7 months ago)
Dang it man, I'll never think about mario cart or mario party the same again
jUppers (8 months ago)
this game could take a LOT of "inspiration" from CTR where the items actually make sense

What you don't play competitive Mario Party
John Stamos (8 months ago)
There's this thing when you finally get to be an expert at mario kart all fun is stripped from the game and all it is is fighting with two other people for 1st place in online lobbies with bananas,red shells,and green shells as the only items.
Dave Savage (8 months ago)
When I'm playing Mario Kart there is always that one player behind you who keeps spamming you with red shells I hate it sometimes they even bring up blue shells twice a race!!! 😤😤😬
CXG (8 months ago)
I’m not sure why, but MK8 Deluxe has slightly harder CPUs compared to MK8 on the Wii U. It’s odd, I thought Nintendo would use the same CPU system, but it seems like they tinkered with it. Either way, everything else is fine.
har12rocks (8 months ago)
A pro technique I use is sandbag where I stay in low spots for the 2 laps and then in 3rd lap I zoom ahead...though this won’t work all the time but it sure is fun And another technique I use is front run where I try to get away from the crowd from the start of the race asap this will work almost all times on Mario kart 8 d and I use this as my secondary technique One thing I don’t do is stay in middle that’s terrible

You want to know how to fix this game? Remove red shells. Its actually surprising how well the game works without them.

UGh STRESS! WHAT GAME ON CHRISTMAS SHOULD I PLAY THE MOST? Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (online, Time Trials and 150cc Grand Prix) Fire Emblem Warriors (History Mode grinding) Minecraft (you know wyat) Also, that Mario Kart Wii clip is so TRUE! and i hate it too

ever notice how its always the bad players that conplain?
Vector (9 months ago)
For me, an issue I had in Mario Kart 7 was when I was playing against the CPU's, I would always stay in first just from how I naturally played. Because of this, all the action happened behind me and at times it was boring.
Chris McKenzie (10 months ago)
Play with no items or do time trials. Problem solved. :P
Nintendo Challenger X (10 months ago)
Ya know it's funny Nintendo don't do shit for competition until I play COD. And holy shit did I get rekt. Thought I was decent at most video games, WRONG, lol hence the name.

I played MaroKart8 with friends, on a friends wii u.... since last week I have a Switch.... 3 Hours before I watched this video, I bought Mario Kart8 for my switch, and i hate me for this :)
Luke Hinkle (11 months ago)
I have never cussed over a video game as much as I have for both Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Mario Kart 7 for the 3DS. I say words I am highly ashamed of, even though nobody is around to hear the bombs I drop over these games.
Endermankid563 (11 months ago)
How to be an expert at mariokart. Abuse last place items. Period. ITEM SMUGGLING IS THE SH*T!!
Johnny Gamer1 (11 months ago)
It sucks. Mario Kart sucks.
Jonathan Tash (11 months ago)
The problem I have, is when they expect you to keep in first place with a fast time for all the races in every grand prix. It doesn't make any sense, because Mario Kart discourages mastery. I can't even strategize, since you have to have a consistently fast time (by staying in first place), in order to get the max rating and unlock everything. It just makes me scream, "MAKE UP YOUR MIND!"
Ben Tassie (11 months ago)
*MAERIO KART*
Lady Ramkin (11 months ago)
I don't mind items in Mario Kart in general. But when you have to come first to unlock stuff. And you are first all race, get three feet from the finish line, and still finish last due to the infinite barrage of shells.... that shit is annoying.
Mean Joe Green (11 months ago)
I've never raged harder on any other game than mario kart 8. Maybe rocket league
4dor PopTop (1 year ago)
My Prob: Is it me? Im WAYYY in 1st place and i get hit by blue shells a lot. Did the chance of getting a blue shell increase?
lrmclinn (1 year ago)
it only frustrates me in 150cc and up when you're playing alone AND YOU JUST WANNA GET ALL 3 STAR GOLD TROPHIES BUT YOU KEEP GETTING GANKED AT THE FINISH LINE BY 3 FUCKING RED SHELLS 2 BLUE SHELLS AND A LIGHTNING BOLT! ON THE SAME DAMN RACE!!!!! but yeah it's fun X3
Darkzeroprojects (1 year ago)
I to be honest stopped playing Mario Kart or such games,Realizing no matter how good Id do,some bull%^)# will keep me from so. I'm not a competitive guy like most who play comp,but I like to play the game straight,not have some dumb mechanic,balances,or even luck to handhold me for doing poorly...and even not want to learn if they punish me for being skillful. I like to earn my way up somewhat in such games with multiplayer to enjoy it and face those better than me. It isn't fun to constantly Lose. I'm not wanting to win all the time though,just actually put a effort. To me I think

This is why the first Sega All-Stars Racing is better than Mario Kart. Things like the horn, the speed shoes and the shield allow players to avoid the blue and red shell equivalents. Freaking love that game, so much fun and pretty much never unfair or frustrating.

" Mario Kart is unfair, I am the best and i lose" Oh wow, what a surprise

How are you gonna bring up items while talking about competitive smash
Best Minion (1 year ago)
Honestly I like the Wii Mario kart blue shell animation more than deluxe/8
NintendoShark (1 year ago)
Another thing that really frustrates me is when I'm in dead last and really need those good items, but that's when I only get bull crap like triple mushrooms in a course with extremely sharp turns instead of something useful like a bullet bill or a lightning that actually would help me to catch up when I'm half a lap behind the person in front of me
Jorge Villa (1 year ago)
The title card gave us the answer lol
Andrew Roes (1 year ago)
You can turn off items though
FireFly79 (1 year ago)
The thing that pisses me off about the Blue shell (or Spiny Shell if you want to be anal about it) is that it doesn't really serve the person who throws it. It just ends up giving 2nd or 3rd place a better chance of winning. Grrrrrr!!!!
Shmalfie (1 year ago)
None of my friends have ever beaten me at mario kart
The Spicy Meme (1 year ago)
But if you are able to get shrooms to first you can dodge a blue shell... however you only have a couple of frames to do it so..... only people that are good at the game can pull that off

I got so good at one point in mario kart ds (and sometimes 7) when I got hit with a blue shell I was still in first place

I have a huge issue with competitive smash bros. I'll play final destination with no items with my friends all day, but that's because they don't play "competitively." They don't wave dash around the stage and edge guard the entire time. They don't spam the same move because it has less frames in the animation than most attacks in the game. That's not fun that's just sweaty and not how the game was meant to be played. I find it ridiculous that using glitches and exploits is widely accepted in competitive smash bros. It's sad that people don't use certain characters because they want to have every advantage over their opponent rather than just...having a little bit of fun with friends.

why would just totally random be so bad? seriously , just make it totally random and put the fake boxes back. I just don't understand why on earth you would dumb down games so badly that they become horrible to play for the people that have experience and this crap makes me not play the game at all. esp the crap ass internet servers where you can't even tell if you have a remote chance of winning due to lag and shit
