From the article: "Whats seems to be taking the gaming community by a storm is the expressions that the characters of Mario Kart 8 make in game while reacting with each other showing how much details has been injected into the game. The most notable of the gifs going around is Luigi’s expression when taking someone down or just passing someone."
LOL!!!! I've read this article because of his title but I was sure about the bad quality explanation.

I like his death stare, but Donkey Kong has the best one.
The Luigi Death Stare memes and gifs are great advertising for MK8. Plus it shows one of many subtle layers of detail added to the game that help make it stand out from the common game. The Mario Kart series does an amazing job of being its own class of game, it's one of the only games of its type, has fun with items and level design, and throws in tons of detail most would overlook or not think of
Maybe someone can explain all this to me; is Luigi's "death stare" a special attack or something or is it just an expression the character makes similar to a victory stance in a fighting game? Like what's the big deal?
