Phil writes, "The kart racer is my preferred type of racing experience. Everything from fantastical racing locales and tracks to item combat is what I like in my racing games. When you have colorful tracks, whimsical characters, and wacky items, you have a game I'll probably enjoy. This top ten list is dedicated to kart racers, but not the ones you'd probably think of first when the words "kart racer" come to mind. No, these games are ones that don't get as much credit, which I think is as great as a flat tire on the final lap. With this list of my ten favorite underrated kart racers, it's my hope that getting the word out on these games might give these games some of the attention that they truly deserve."
Crash Team Racing on the Playstation was always my guilty pleasure. Playing as Tiny ^%^
CTR and Sonic SEGA All-Star Racing Tranformed are probably 2 of the best kart racing games I've ever played. Mario Kart is always great. I didn't care much for ModNation Racing. It wasn't deep enough. Never tried the "Road Trip" version though, so maybe that one was better.
I was really surprised with Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing. It definitely gave me that Mario Kart fix I wanted on PC. I do hope they make another one.
Steam had/has all the sonic and sonic racing on sale now for like 3 bucks each, I just bought Sonic CD game for 2 bucks.
