Mario Kart 8
Mario Kart is one of those games that is just always fun. While other companies were busy trying to create their own mascot-powered karting experience, Nintendo was smooth sailing with Mario and friends. They could have easily just put out a prettier version of the last game with a couple of more characters and nobody would have batted an eyelash. But this is Nintendo we’re dealing with, so there is no way that would suffice.
Instead, we got what is hands down the best Mario Kart to ever grace our screens. Tons of drivers, customizable vehicles, and the best tracks to ever appear in the series make for one seriously fun game. There’s nothing better than piling a bunch of your friends into the same room to duke it out on the track. Plus, the addition of non-Mario related characters, such as Link, make it even better.
