Karting - When is it enough?

MMGN.COM writes: What is the obsession with kart racing games? It seems that every developer under the sun feels that in order to make a successful spin-off series, they are required to put their characters inside a 150cc metal chassis and send them around a track in the sunshine. Sure, it was a lot of fun when Nintendo unleashed Super Mario Kart back in 1992, but twenty years later, enough is enough.

I love Mario Kart.

Also, LBP is getting a Kart Racing game and it looks to blow away Mod Nation Racers. I love LBP's creation tools. So damn excited.

I am joining this mario kart train!

No clicks here. The synopsis makes it sound like kart racers are flooding the market. I am glad to see the anouncement of another racer. Mod nation had potential but failed in certain areas. I want to see something like the new lbp racer succeed.

If the game is good...then what's wrong with having more competition?

On a completely unrelated note...N4G really needs to ditch this ad with the screaming high school girls...

Guess what company that made that ad..It doesn't make me want to buy your shit. It makes me want to avoid you at all costs and make sure I buy from someone else.

Edit: I think someone's mad that we're not mad about more cart games...

we all have one disagree..

LBP Kart Racing was just recently announced. Journalist hate Sony, so lets make an article about too much kart racing.

I could be grasping at straws here - it's early in the morning :)

How about we ask that same question about FPSs?

Yeah. When BATTLESHIP decides it's better off being a FPS.. you know the industry has a serious serious problem. When I was young playing Battleship I can honestly say, it being a FPS never crosses my mind. RTS, sure. FPS, No. What's next a Risk FPS??

I would worry a bit more about FPS than Karting games...
