Ourcade Games - "As I’m speeding down the road, I notice a turn coming up. Instead of braking and taking the corner easy, I decide to powerslide into the curve, and with a flick of the analog stick, boost out of the turn. As I’m all alone on the final straightaway, the nearest racer’s icon just spun, signaling a slip on a banana. The checkered flag is in my sight. Then…a pulsing sound signifies an impending doom, as a quick blue flash streaks across my screen, followed by an explosion of light. As my kart flips in the air, I watch my position change from 1st to 3rd and I slowly, begrudgingly, make my way across the finish line.
This is Mario Kart, and it’s moments like these that have endeared it (for better or worse) to gamers all over."
