How Mario Kart Encourages You to Suck

1880 ratings | 70866 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.

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

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.

mk 8 its kinda boring because no single player mode :(

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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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.

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.

Smash bros with items is full of filthy casuals

This is what makes mario kart amazing fun
robomiro (2 months ago)
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.

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 (3 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 (3 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. -.-

Dang it man, I'll never think about mario cart or mario party the same again

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 (4 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 (4 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 (4 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 (4 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 (6 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 (6 months ago)
Play with no items or do time trials. Problem solved. :P

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 (7 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.
How to be an expert at mariokart. Abuse last place items. Period. ITEM SMUGGLING IS THE SH*T!!
Johnny Gamer1 (7 months ago)
It sucks. Mario Kart sucks.
Jonathan Tash (7 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 (7 months ago)
*MAERIO KART*
Lady Ramkin (8 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 (8 months ago)
I've never raged harder on any other game than mario kart 8. Maybe rocket league
pıʞ ǝɯos (8 months 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 (8 months 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 (8 months 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 (9 months ago)
Honestly I like the Wii Mario kart blue shell animation more than deluxe/8
NintendoShark (9 months 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 (9 months ago)
The title card gave us the answer lol
Andrew Roes (10 months ago)
You can turn off items though
FireFly79 (10 months 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 (10 months ago)
None of my friends have ever beaten me at mario kart
The Spicy Meme (10 months 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

cody muller (11 months ago)
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

Yes, there's a high luck factor in Mario Kart but no, Nintendo doesn't discourage competitive play. Most people just aren't looking to be competitive. Putting in more than 70hours into Deluxe will get you 1st place 60%+ of the time. Putting in more and practicing 200cc lines when everyone plays 150 (because, well, videogames are casualizing) will get you wins almost systematically.
supaflydaguy (11 months ago)
I really feel like Mario kart 8 is the least bs of all the Mario kart games. You get horns every once in a while to scare off the blue shells and lakitu doesn't take his sweet ass time saving you once you fell off a la MK64

200cc pisses me off. 5 red shell!!! JERKS!!🤒
SpectacularWill (11 months ago)
What I do is stay in 1st and play defensive and focus karts on speed, drifting and handling so whenever I'm hit I still have a chance to keep my place. Also I feel like Mario Kart should focus more on skill and not luck. Recent games have been focusing more on skill so whenever I play MK Wii I get annoyed as it's all luck

Stopped at 2:24 ... I'll tell you that being in 2nd, majority of the time, is the WORST place you can be in. xD

frustrates me in Mario kart but I can honestly say that it keeps me playing. The unpredictable aspect is appealing to me

I am that guy that usually who is in first on single player mode so I hate the play mechanics  on Mario Kart and believe the least they could do is have the restart option like on Mario Kart for the SNES.One these days I will go to a E3 so I can punch some of the stupid yes men working at Nintendo.Second they should have a pure racer mode and have the option.
Sasha Shadowhive (11 months ago)

DeeJay DeEnay (11 months ago)
you can use the weird red block things to stop a blue shell now... or hold a shell/banana behind you to protect from red shells, which all helps more skilled players protect from being screwed over... which wasnt mentioned in the video
