Mario Kart 8: 6 Reasons It’s Game Of The Year So Far

It’s now been out for a couple of weeks, but Nintendo’s newest addition to the Mario Kart family knows no sign of losing any of its appeal. Having pulled in a cavalcade of perfect and near perfect scores, the game has also seen an uplift in Wii U sales – something that was at times seemed unthinkable for the Japanese gaming giant’s much maligned, but still brilliant next gen console – and can easily lay a claim to be the best game, and certainly the most essential, on the console to date.

You're uninformed. What great games do you like that Sony or Microsoft have developed? Oh yeah neither company really is in the business of creating software for their systems! They're in the business of porting bs overhyped software to their oh so powerful home video game consoles that oddly look exactly the same. That's basically it. Nintendo is the only company in this industry that is in the business of CREATING video game software for their hardware. By win do you mean sell more copies? Or are you talking complete bs about something you really don't know about!? The Playstation started out as a cd add on for the SNES!!! That's right! If Nintendo didn't back out of their agreement THE PLAYSTATION WOULD HAVE BEEN A NINTENDO PRODUCT!!!!! The actions by Sony makes me think that they might still think they're in business with Nintendo! Sony execs. call the Wii a "toy" for fricking years then they copied the the Wii remote completely and... failed!!!!!! Microsoft lost four billion dollars on the Xbox One sorry I mean the first Xbox! The 360 was rushed out the door. Another year of research and development and maybe they would have won last generation. Instead they came in LAST PLACE!!!!! Sony and Microsoft are dinosaurs. More power with zero innovation does not a console make! I personally despise Microsoft. They didnt sell a home video game console that might break they sold millions of home video game consoles they knew would break and when RROD hit big time lol you know they were screwed. Peace! Let's all play Mario Kart 8!! The most addicting video game maybe ever invented!!!!!

So just because a game is fun and meant for everybody automatically makes it a stupid game for kids?!

smh. Lighten up and enjoy some games would you? Maybe next time they'll add some decapitations purely for you..

The whole point is fun and entertainment, and if you consider those things senseless crap with no reason then you need a new hobby. Coroner comes to mind..

g5bay1577d ago

Of course every game is fun and entertaining that doesn't apply only to mk8.

fenome1577d ago (Edited 1577d ago )


I've played a lot of games in my days dude, and I wouldn't consider a lot of them fun or entertaining.

I'm not even saying Mario Kart should get GOTY. After playing the alpha I think Destiny will get that. I'm just saying that this game doesn't deserve the blind hate for no reason..

g5bay1577d ago

I will take mk8 over destiny. That game sucks man its just an mmorpg shooter you need to be online all the time.

fenome1577d ago


Cool, to each their own, don't knock it 'til you've tried it though. I'll agree to disagree :D

I hope Mario Kart 8 gets GOTY. The game is amazing and a lot of fun. The devs defiantly deserve the award.

randomass1711577d ago

Been playing t for a few weeks now and am loving it. Totally would not mind seeing this game be GOTY.

Neonridr1577d ago

It will definitely be one of the games in the final talks I am sure. And with a lot of titles slipping from 2014 to 2015, it has a very good shot.
