Mario Kart 8's Online Multiplayer Is Getting Lonelier

Kotaku: "If you build it, they will come," the saying goes. It's never that simple when it comes to playing video games online. I love Mario Kart 8, and have been playing it consistently since it came out in May. But lately I've been running into a problem: other people aren't. Or it sure feels that way, at least.

I think many people are just waiting for the DLC to drop since there are many other great games that released since it came out (like Forza Horizon 2 or Driveclub soon being another one). I personally lost a lot of interest since that update destroyed the competitive aspect of the online for me.

You're right, modern car games aren't as fun!

As a nintendo fan, I havent touched mario kart online since Hyrule Warriors came out and I wont for a while. Not to mention once I get tired of Hyrule Warriors, Master Chief Collection comes out. Once I get tired of that Smash Brothers U comes out. Once I get tired of that Captain Toad and Splatoon and Yoshis Wooly World and Xeno Chronicles will be out.

I will be enjoying Forza Horizon 2 and or Project CARS in the middle of all of that. Do you see where this is going? Mario Kart is great but there are so many great games coming to play it online right now.

What's So lonely about it? I find tons of people all the time. I haven't noticed any less players on.

Its really irritating to try and get in a game with a friend since the only way to do so is to play in a tournament, and most of those are empty.

Finding a random game full of people isnt too uncommon. People will start playing when the DLC comes.

If there are enough people to keep play who cares?

Nintendo games seems to fizzle out pretty quick. Their multiplayer games become ghost towns at the drop of a hat.
