In 1992 Super Mario Kart released on the Super Nintendo and changed how the world thought of racing games. A new sub-genre formed: The kart racer. Utilizing a cast of characters plucked from the Super Mario Bros. franchise, players could race against a friend or the computer across Mode 7 courses. Though Super Mario Kart initially began development as a sequel to F-Zero, Nintendo decided to take it in a drastically different direction, lowering the skill it took to play the game to be more accessible. On release, it captivated gaming audiences everywhere across all age brackets. The result was a franchise that all other titles attempting to break into the sub-genre sought to surpass - often without success.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's critical acclaim has us wondering: Is Super Mario Kart, the game that started it all, one of the best games period?

Outro music: Mario Kart 64 'Day's End' by Sole Signal and Tweex (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01706)
