Still a shame all of Nintendo’s other racing series have fallen by the wayside while only Mario Kart gets attention from Nintendo

I would love to see a new F-Zero game.

Strange. The only two Mario karts that I haven’t even played, let alone bought are the 2 top sold. I guess I just wasn’t into Nintendo in the late 2000s.

Mario Kart Double Dash will always be one of my favorites in this series.

Mario Kart Wii is still my favourite personally.The game wasn't balanced between bikes and karts but it just played so well plus had a great online scene.
