"Back in 1992, Mario Kart had to be a weird concept. Mario and seven of his pals race around some tracks for a few laps? What's Mario doing in a racing game? The genre was relatively new at the time, so Mario joining the fray had to seem a bit odd. Jump to 2014, where Mario Kart is a staple of any new Nintendo console, portable or handheld. With the recent release of Super Mario Kart, one question remains: does it still hold up to today's standards?"
