Thankfully our resident retro guru Andrew is here to set the record straight.

Great production on the video. Really brought back great memories. Double Dash will always be my favorite because my sons were young when we played it together. Now they are grown and on there own 😢

JDen it's fun because of the fact that is broken. It's the game that takes most skill.
JDen (2 months ago)
funtimeuniverse Well, I’ll try that. The computer players won’t help though. I can beat them with ease in any difficulty.
funtimeuniverse (2 months ago)
JDen, though most of that is true, I don’t have online on my Wii but I have as much skill as some of the pros. I used friends, lots of time trials, using WR strats, and having CPU’s in hard mode. But for online, at least for now, I do use MK7.

Wait...I thought it was only Alex that runned Nintendo Life...

My most memorable moment was in MKWii when I beat my big brother with the help of the triple red shells and barely any invincibility frames. Still rub it in to this day.

I not like super Mario Kart(snes)
fripp555 (2 months ago)
I cant believe how bad the snes one looks now. I still like the N64 version alot. I do not like the GC or wii versions. 3ds one is good. Wiiu and switch have not tried but look good and fun.

Nick Burk (3 months ago)
Dude - why skip over Mario Kart 7 on the 3DS?
_WOOMYLORD_ (3 months ago)
Mk8 Deluxe is certainly the best in the series, but my only complaint is that the racers in single player mode are too easy to race or battle against. Online makes up for it though 👍🏻

DK dab

If you pause somewhere at 7:12 you can see DK dab

SMK is tedious and unfair. Super Circuit is much better. Try that one instead.
fripp555 (2 months ago)
Guardian Man 123 Try the first two for shits and giggles. N64 one is a staple in the franchise

How about you GIVE ME a Switch.

4:11 it's not strange to feature a tamagotchi character considering that tamagotchi is owned by bandi namco and bandi namco made mario kart gp 2 . It's no stranger than having pac man in the gsme

Did I just hear him say that MK64 saw the debut of Donkey Kong as a playable character when DK was a playable character in the original on the SNES.

My Best to Worst Favorites: Super Mario Kart (BEST) Mario Kart 64 Mario Kart DS Mario Kart Super Circuit Mario Kart Double Dash Mario Kart 7 Mario Kart Wii Mario Kart (GP Arcade Versions) And Mario Kart 8 And Deluxe (IS THE WORST EVER)
JDen (2 months ago)
EAS CEC definitely isn’t nostalgia blind. No way. Not at all. Am I right, guys? How the hell is SMK better than all the others? It’s literally the only objectively bad game in the series.
Michael Echeverria (7 months ago)
3:49 You're wrong, Mario Kart: Double Dash!! was the first Mario Kart to have online capabilities via a modem you had to install under the Nintendo GameCube's port. But had the Nintendo 64DD been released along the Nintendo 64's launch in June 1996 and September 1996 in Japan and America respectively, I wonder if Mario Kart 64 could've had online capabilities. 7:24 My favorite game in the series is Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. But one of my most fondest memories would have to be playing on the All-Cup Tour cup and playing all the tracks in one take and setting.

Now I feel guilty for not playing Mario Kart Wii. I even made a pledge to go back and play Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 and Mario Kart Wii.
Christopher Mueller (6 months ago)
JamesJoe 3635 Initially, then all the updates and such are done through a custom Wii Channel
JamesJoe 3635 (6 months ago)
Do you know how to download custom tracks? Does it require an SD card?
Christopher Mueller (6 months ago)
JamesJoe 3635 I still play Mario Kart Wii to this day. There is a thriving community that has found a way to create custom tracks. You can download over 200 custom tracks and even play them online. That's what makes MKWii the best

xJaredxmusicx (9 months ago)
Love Mario kart. I play it frequently as a more adult version with alcohol. Just played it yesterday. Wish it could be online and I'm talking about Mario kart 64. Anyone else remember Mickeys Speedway USA? That was great too. Even Lego racing.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is slowly becoming my favorite, but I absolutely love going back and playing MK64. I think it's the nostalgia factor. Plus 3 full laps on N64 Rainbow Road, not one lap in 3 parts. Gotta enjoy that music track!
