Happy Thursday and Happy June!
I can’t believe another month has come and gone… time flies and between that and our Mario Kart 8 Deluxe review yesterday, I started thinking back on some other Mario Kart games.
Mario Kart Wii was my favorite Mario Kart game. I have to say that 8 Deluxe is my new favorite, but I will always have fond memories of the Wii version.
It was the first Mario Kart game with the tilt motion controls and I absolutely loved using the steering wheel. I was much better at using the motion controls than I was using the regular joy-stick controls. I was better than Kris too, which was even more fun.
Mario Kart Wii came out in April 2008. That was the year Kris graduated from high school and she had a large group of friends. I remember she would have the group over from time to time and they would hang out in the basement, play video games, gossip, whatever. Me, being the little sister, usually tagged along with them, and they gladly let me.
Mario Kart was always a big game for them to play. I used to love watching them go head to head in tournaments with one another even though they weren’t big “gamers” it was still all good fun for everyone.
I remember laughing hysterically watching them all play because there were certain people who were good at it and certain others who were not.
Of course, everyone went to off to college, moved to other places, and some are even married now. Still, we keep in touch with a few of them and our closest ones have a Nintendo Switch of their own. I can’t wait to challenge them in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
That’s one thing I love most about Nintendo and video games. It brings people together and we all genuinely have a good time.
Do you have any fond memories of old Mario Kart games? Let me know in the comments below!
