So I've been playing a ton of Mario Kart 7 lately and I've been having a blast with it. While playing the game I'm trying to decide which Mario Kart game has the best set of tracks. My brain wants to say Mario Kart 64, but nostalgia is kicking in.

So Bombers, which Mario Kart do you think has the best tracks?

My brain also wants to say Mario 64, so let my brain talk!

I never played much of the original and I haven't played Mario Kart 7 yet but Double Dash still has my favourite tracks in the series. DK Mountain, Peach Beach, Waluigi's Stadium, Rainbow Road, all really great tracks, I feel.

Well, it's a beach, and it's got those duck dudes from Super Mario Sunshine (in my head I call them Quack Quacks but that's probably not right), and if you touch them then they chuck you in the air. It's pretty cool. There's a ramp, too!

The super mario wiki has more info.

Definitely a toss up between Super & 64. 64 gets the nod though for the awesome battle mode & a handful of tracks that are the best.

Double Dash for me, I played the shit out of Bowser's Castle on my Gamecube. I was all over the time trials for that shit.

Your first is your favourite, so Super Mario Kart.

I'm pretty sure I think it's Double Dash. BUT I can tell you that Bowser's Castle is ALWAYS the best track.

Not played MK on the Wii or the latest one. The one that probably sticks in my head as having the most memorable tracks would be Double Dash - DK Mountain is one of my favourite tracks of the series!

Double Dash did have some solid tracks.

I actually thought it was pretty cool that Mario Kart 7 had races that had laps that worked via leg of race as opposed to the usual lap around the track. Rainbow Road was particularly epic too.
