Happy Thursday! The last Thursday of 2017.
Kris and I recently got the SNES Classic Mini and we’ve been testing the waters with it.
Super Mario Kart originally released in 1992 for the Super Nintendo – before I was born. Yet, I remember playing the game at my grandmother’s house with Kris.
I believe our older sister used to play with us as well as did my dad on occasion. Still, I was super young and obviously not very good at it.
I’ll admit I don’t have too many memories of playing the game.
I’m great at Mario Kart now. Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart 7, 8, and 8 Deluxe, I’m a beast at. (Usually.)
When Kris and I play those games together, I’m usually in first place and she trails behind with the items covering my back. Yet, when we played Super Mario Kart the other night…
I gamed over. How do you game over in Mario Kart? I didn’t even know you had lives.
Kris was in first place most of the time while I came in second once or twice, but I was mostly in 4th… or 8th. I got into last place quite a bit and ended up gaming over on Boo’s Haunted House on the Flower Cup. Each race after that, my half of the screen was darkened with “GAME OVER” written on it just to rub it in.
Apparently, muscle memory doesn’t work when it comes to Super Mario Kart.
Still, it was a lot of fun to play the game again as it’s been way too long. Kris and I had fun and we shared a lot of laughs… especially since I couldn’t steer and couldn’t be bothered to stay on the track.
Do you remember playing Super Mario Kart? Do you have the SNES Classic? Let me know in the comments below and we’ll chat!
