What is your favorite Mario Kart game and was it your first experience with the Mario Kart franchise?
Super Mario Kart SNES was my first. The only other one I've played for an extended period of time is Mario Kart 64, which I like better than SMK. So I guess that makes it my favorite.
Having said that, I'll be interested in one for 3DS if they do more crazy levels in the vein of the Mario Galaxy games. Rainbow Road without the bleeding eyes.
Mario Kart: Double Dash!! is by far the best game in the series. The N64 and SNES games were fun back in the day, but they've become dated since then (not Super Mario Kart so much but Mario Kart 64 has aged horribly). Mario Kart Wii was an attempt to "return to form" with only have one character per kart, but Double Dash has the best level design in my book.
that's difficult to answer.
I chose MK Double Dash!!. My first Mario Kart experience was the original SNES game but that is certainly not my favorite. I like all of them a lot though. The most recent ones (on GCN, DS, Wii) are the ones I like best because the have the retro courses plus the modern refinements.
The Jeff-Gerstmann-Mario-Kart-Rule does not apply to me :)
SNES version was the first for me.
I had so much fun playing that game.. still go back to it sometimes. =).
I haven't played the other versions much, but I remember the gamecube version (or was it the n64 version o_O - don't remember - was at friend's house) being pretty fun also.
Me and my friends have played every Mario Kart game excessively since the SNES, and our 3 favourites are
- Mario Kart Wii
- Mario Kart Double Dash!!
- Mario Kart 64
My first Zelda was on the NES, but above all I love Zelda 3 & Ocarina of Time.
My first Mario was on the NES, but Galaxy 1 & 2 are my favorites.
My first Metroid was on the NES, but the Prime series are my favourite.
My 1st Mario Cart was 64 but I hate it. Double Dash is my favorite. Also my 1st Zelda was a Link's Awakening but my favorite one is A Link to the Past which I did not play until it came out for the GBA and I played many Zeldas until then.
So my point is that I think they are wrong about your 1st being your favorite.
My favorite out of the series is MK64. It's not the best, SMK would be the best, but it was the most fun to play especially with 3 of my best friends who were over every single day since I was the only one with an N64, they all had PS and if it wasn't for me their childhoods would have been deprived. It's a well known fact that kids who grew up without N64 are more likely to become serial killers, rapists, drug junkies, hobos, you get the picture.
Out of all the Nintendo Franchises most of my fav games were on N64 and it is by far my favorite console ever made.
Super was my first. I didn't actually play 64 for the longest time, at least not until I played the heck out of Diddy Kong Racing which I received before MK64. I remember the I tried renting Super multiple times in a row from Blockbuster to convince my mom to get the game (my parents were wary of video game habits as a kid...which isn't the case now. My collection has exploded within the past few years to catch up.). I finally managed to persuade my mom to get me the game for my birthday the year the N64 came out...unfortunately it was always sold out and I ended up with Yoshi's Island instead which isn't too bad of a trade off. At least now, I appreciate the game more.
