Eh? - I find that hard to believe.

Mario Kart is just one of those games that practically ruin friendships...I mean, come on - when you get knocked by THIS THING while you're in first place, just about to cross the finish line - HOW ON EARTH IS THAT A STRESS RELIEVER?!

Total bullshit. I haven't raged this hard at a game since Gears of War, the Blue Shell can go fuck it's face.

Lies.

Mario Kart is a very difficult game and highly competitive, even against computers.

This game is more like a punching bag that mocks your sissy swings.

I'm going to get a ton of disagrees but I have consciously thought this. I feel it is a fun, competitive, and chaotic....yet very relaxing game. They organize it so well and the gameplay has a awesome addicting rhythm to it I can't describe unless you play often. It relaxes me.

Others may have road rage so they take it out on karts in the game....maybe it helps them de-stress.
