Best racing game last gen, for me, was the excellent Driveclub, without a single doubt. Flawed launch perhaps, but they more than made up for that.

Dirt 2 GOTY (the base-game was a bit too empty, but the GOTY is packed with content) also deserves a mention, for fans of the genre.

Nintendo has done great things with Mario Kart 8 on Switch. After horrible Wii U sales the port has become the biggest and best Mario Kart to date.

I'm glad they didn't actually make an MK9 for the Switch. 8 was so solid and didn't get the appreciation it deserved, now it's reached like 5-6x the amount of players it ever could have and has grown to be almost like a repository for the best maps the franchise has put out.

For a fun statistic, apparently the Switch port of MK8 has sold more than 4X what the Wii U console sold.

I wonder what the plan will be on the switch 2. Unless they add major new gameplay mechanics, doing away with the huge mk8 and starting a new with an mk9 must be pretty terrifying. There’s a huuuge amount of tracks in mk8 now

Yi-Long7d ago

I hope they just stick with MK8, perhaps change the ‘8’ into the ‘Infinity’ symbol, and just build and expand on what they have, so bringing in new Nintendo characters and locations (Metroid, Zelda, F-Zero, Xenoblade, etc), as well as including a fantastic track-creator (ala Modnation).

Couldn’t agree more! Starting again seems like a real waste of time

That's the same issue Smash Bros. is currently facing; How do you move on from the biggest entry in your series' history that celebrates everything that came before it?

JimmyDM907d ago

I hope they just go full smash/Nintendo kart with it. Bringing in a bunch more characters, tracks and items from the different Nintendo franchises (Kirby, Pokemon, Starfox, etc). They've already dipped their toe with 8, leaning much heavier into it for 9 would be an easy way to differentiate the new game on top of some new mechanical gimmick. Not sure what the new gimmick would be but destructible environments could be cool. Blast a hole through a wall with a green shell then speed through shortcut you just created. Knock out the support beams of a roof to create a ramp, etc.

Hope they add DK Mountain to this one.


PC Games That Are Better With A Controller

Here are some great PC games that are even better with a controller. In fact, one can say that they're meant to be played with a controller.

That's why I don't mess with PC gaming for the most part. When I game I'm relaxing. Hard to do that with a keyboard and mouse. That's just my thought on it.

I'm still hoping bethesada adds real controller support to the og fallout or re release them on xbox like what was done with wasteland 1

What exactly is so hard about using a keyboard and mouse compared to a controller when subjectively relaxing? Do you game upside down on a crossbar?

Daeloki24d ago

At least in my opinion, with a controller I can lay back comfortably in my couch however I want. Keyboard + mouse would require a table and chair, and requires investing in ergonomics not to completely mess up my back (not saying the couch is good for my back either but achieving comfortability is easier). Again, emphasizing that I'm speaking out of opinion, and I agree with you that concepts of relaxing and which is better are both very subjective matters. All in all I don't think it's a particularly good article since it really boils down to personal preference.

Anything that is not a shooter or doesn't have a crosshair.
