Whats the best Mario Kart game
and why is it Mario Kart 8?
>>
>>322935194
thats not mario kart ds
>>
>>322935194
Double Dash is still my favorite.
>>
I prefer MKWii for goat shortcuts like Grumble Volcano
>>
>>322935693
My nigga


I honestly don't get the hate for that one
>>
>>322935194
Why does Mario look so serious? He's just Mario.
>>
DS
>>
>>322936142
Shit was floaty as fuck and the double racer mechanics was only really interesting in co-op
>>
I agree, it alctually switches things up in a way that no mario kart has since double dash, what with gravity and making only one item holdable. And now it has 200cc.
>>
>>322937927
Double Dash also has by far the best battle mode though.
>>
>>322937609
to be fair mario kart is actually a pretty damn biolent sport in universe. You can't die but you will take a beating.
>>
the problem in this game is how short the circuit are
say you start badly the coursedue to bad luck, if first guy is gud at it, there is no way you can catch him up
having a green shell when you are 8th is frustrating

graphics are amazing though
>>
>>322936142
>used to play Double Dash in high school with my friend
>was a much better racer than him and knew how to power slide well
>he would just pick Baby Mario and Baby Luigi
>spam double Chain Chomp special to instantly catch up to a high place without doing jack shit
>does this almost every race
No, fuck that game.
>>
>7 HD
>featuring a stupid gimmick
>along with babies and metal Peach
MASTERPIECE

>they added new cups in the DLC but no actual battle stages
>>
>>322938883
gravity is a great switch up for the series and for individual courses. Dont bother playing a mario sporrts game if you hate "gimmicks"

Because it has the best course design, when you factor in the ridiculously cheap DLC it has by far the most content of any mario kart, its nowhere near as rubberband as previous installments like MKWii, the blueshell isn't the end all item like it used to be either. Once they added 200cc, it's easily the most challenging now too.

If Diddy Kong were playable and Battle Mode was like previous installments, it'd be literally perfect.
>>
we need DD's battle mode back and have all four games playable online. Unfortunantly something has possed nintendo to go the opposite direction and simify battle mode instead, and now they dont event care and wont even make proper arenas for it. Do the japanese just not play that mode?
>>
>>322939127
There's was literally nothing wrong with Wii. It's in the top three

1.Ds
2.DD
3.Wii

That is the optimal top three selection
>>
What was it about DS that people found so good, what's special about it beyond introducing the retro prix and online?
>>
>>322941327
DS
8
64

Everything else is beneath in track length, variety and difficulty.
>>
>>322941682
Mission mode added a lot of content and the emblems added a customization aspect.
>>
>>322941327
Short of Super Circuit, Wii is literally the worst Mario Kart game.
>>
>>322942013
>mission mode
forgot about that one, legitimate reason i guess. Its pretty understandable why that went on the chopping block though.
>>
>>322942409
what does anything before DD do better?
>>
>DD babies still think it was the best MK

it wasn't, you were just 12
>>
>>322942409
Wii gives you:

>A very nice selection of fun courses to race as opposed to 7 where there is like only a few notable ones

> great selection of carts and bike for each weight class

>A nicely balanced roster and weight class system in like in 8 where heavy weights just takes priority over almost every.

>A Battle mode on part with DD and DS with its exclusive arenas along with good classic ones as well which was a hell of a lot more than what 8 gave you for battles.

8 has some great tracks too but it there are all in the dlc. Before those 8 was bland as fuck and the only reason to play it now is for the dlc stuff and only dlc. How was Wii the worse?
>>
>>322944179
underage pls, wii's actual physics and garbage rubberband AI were horrific

>toad harbor, cloudtop cruise, sunshine airport, twisted mansion, bowser's castle, thwomp ruins, shy guy falls, mount fucking wario
>bland

What a gay
>>
>>322942773
It felt like a huge step up from 64 and I had my mom to play coop with. I haven't played 8, but dd was way better than wii.
>>
>>322945993
>Rubberbanding
That shit was real in 8, not Wii. The shit I have fucking seen out of 8 bulls cpu and near rigged item box would make me a millionare. If you had issues with Wii's cpu as to all that bs you shouldn't be playing Mario kart at all.

And yes all of those are get pretty old faster than Mario cart tracks should. Even Mount fuckin Wario
>>
>>322947932
>That shit was real in 8, not Wii.
Compared to Wii that shit is nonexistent stop pulling that out of your ass. On top of that it has some of the worst courses to grace Mario Kart and bikes were broken as fuck.
>>
>>322945993
Mount Wario isn't bland visually but non-circuit courses are fucking lame if you ask me.
>>
>>322948142
Non circuit tracks would be fun if the threw in like more than one or two and put just bit more on them to make them pretty intense, Big Blue is a step in that direction
>>

Mario Kart is too deep for me now with its car and tire selections.

Git gud.

How is the sonic racing transformed as a racer compared to mario? I watched videos of both and sonic kinda seems a little more fun/faster, a little bit like diddy kong racing.

what has mario kart 8 over it?
>>
>>322950081
Better track design
The water and air segments are short and don't have shitty controls
More fun items
Overall more polish
>>
>>322950081
Shittier physics, items are watered down but thats a good thing, flight and water sections suck.

Great fanservice though and generally worth playing.
>>
>>322949309
how? Its simple as shit, just pick what looks cool or all standard if you dont care.
>>
>>322948129
I shit you not I have never had as single problem on the Wii with cpu's blatantly cheating. In 8 that the are just so unashamed of the bullshit you do even need to see the highlights to know that you were cheated. Never on the Wii have I had a moment where the ai tosses a banana peel right under me as I'm about to land from a jump. Never have I had those fuckers pull triple reds out there asses every item box they get while tailing from second will your stuck with bullshit like coins every box when your in first. All this shit does happens ritualisticly in 8 though
>>
>>322935194
Naughty Dog make a better karting game on their first try than all Mario Karts game put together
>>
>>322951120
Funny, I can say I never experienced any of that in 8 while Wii had that in droves.
Needless to say there's a reason why the Wii game is regarded as the worst and as much as you want to deny it it was a horribly flawed game.
>>
>>322937609
It's american cover
>>
>>322950081
It was put together by devs that actually knew what they were doing. And after 200cc, why bother with SRT
>>
>>322935194
MK8 is fucking great, except they went full retard on battle mode for some reason.

Which MK game has best battle mode?
>>
>>322951690
DS
>>
>>322951453
CTR sucks
>>
>>322951878
FOR YOU
>>
Which Nintendo game has the most glorious OST of all time and why is it MK8?
>>
>>322951478
The only actually notable flaw is bikes being broken and shit that easily solved by "lol blue drift" and slipstream in since carts did that way better than bikes in Wii
>>
>>322951690
>>322951820
which console MK has best battle mode?
>>
>>322952296
Nah, mate, I'm sure F-Zero X still holds that award
>>
>>322952296
>>322952661
>not Xenoblade
>>
>>322952427
Wii or Double Dash then, N64 is pretty timeless too
>>
>>322952774
I recall the wii version had something like forced teams. Was Double Dash more traditional?
>>
>>322952427
I'd say it's between 64 and DD.
>>
>>322952913
It didn't
>>
>>322953224
Stop lying anon, Wii has forced teams and a timer on top of that it allows some of the more broken items.
