Anyone who likes the Mario series and partly racing have got to love Mario Kart. Always a joy to play, even when getting done by blue shells or lightning so close to the finish line. So discuss all Mario Kart here!

I own Mario Kart 64 (Virtual Console), Super Circuit, Double Dash, DS, Wii, 7 and 8 Deluxe. Super Circuit was fun by myself, Double Dash played with my brother and friends, plus a bit of Wii too with others. 64 is OK, although the AI's rubber banding was a bit annoying. DS was well recieved, but probably my least played along with 64. I'd play 64 over DS just for the rubber banding though, to laugh at it. XD

7 is good, but would rather play other 3DS games. Not saying it's bad, was fun as usual when I played it.

Hard time deciding if Double Dash, Wii or 8 is the best, but eh. 8 I need to play more of though, but the amount of characters, kart customisations and many Battle Modes may give it the edge. Double Dash for nostalgia for me anyway, the one I may have played the most very closely followed by Wii. The All-Star Cup is what me and my brother player a lot of, and during them we see what characters aren't the race. Now there's so many. XD 

Loving what I've played of MK8 Deluxe though. No need for the DLC packs, which are all inclusive, yay. Glad I waited on the Switch instead of Wii U (although I am a bit late, but better than never). Runaway Renegades is a blast.

MK8D can push ahead of DD for me when you play Baby Park at 200cc. It's just as hectic as the DD version, even more so if you set it to crazy items. I'm just glad it has a proper battle mode unlike whatever that shit was they threw into MK8 on Wii U. Errm

Going through Mirror Mode at the moment for Gold 3-stars. I have yet to play 200cc at all, apart from once or twice before I got my own game. So yeah, I am looking forward to Baby Park. I also find some other track quite hectic with just normal items, but can't remember which one that was (although nowhere near the scale of Baby Park). Not the Excitebike track. Actually come to think of it I might be thinking of a Battle stage. LOL MK8 Rainbow Road and Bowser's Castle were annoying when I played them yesterday on just Mirror, so yay for 200cc on those. Although I think I got better on Bowser's Castle after many attempts. Didn't find problems with it on 150cc weirdly enough.

Mario Kart Stadium, Mario Circuit, GBA Mario Circuit, 3DS Koopa City, GCN Yoshi Circuit, Baby Park (of course), Dry Dry Desert, Mute City and Bug Blue are my favourite tracks. Koopa City needs to be renamed to Drift City. XD I wish the N64 Rainbow Road could have multiple laps instead of being one full lap, but there were not many long tracks anyway. Also wish you could set laps in VS Race. Need more laps of Baby Park.

Man Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart 64 is and was my jam when I was a kid.

For a long long time I considered the Mario Kart series one of my favorite series out there period.

Mario Kart 8 for the Switch is my most played game on the console. So that's saying something. Awesome game and awesome series.

I'd probably have to say race 1 on the original Mushroom Cup series on the original Super Mario Kart for Super Nintendo. Why? Because I have raced there the most and have it just about to a science on getting around that track.

I'm not sure if I've said this on here or not but I considered Super Mario Kart to be my favorite game for quiet sometime during my childhood. So yeah, I gotta go with that.

I hope there's one in the works. Although there's been only one Mario Kart per console though, and MK8D is the updated version of the Wii U's, maybe the recent Home Circuit is meant to be the true Switch instalment. Also there was a trend of 3 years between releases, so a new one could be 2023? Yikes.  D=

I expect a lot of work is going towards Mario Kart Tour or whatever that mobile game is called, especially since MK8 is still pulling good sales.

Yeah it's really the fact that MK8D is still pulling a lot of the sales weight for the Switch that they don't feel incentivized to put effort into a brand new line, especially with what they have for mobile (Tour). It's just such a shame though. I'd even be content with them even making a spiritual successor in the vein of Smash Bros where you have characters from all series joining the race (I mean, it's half way there with Link and Isabelle as playables now, right?)

I wouldn't mind a spin off that has more tracks from other series in it. MK8D has Zelda, Animal Crossing, Splatoon, Excitebike, and F-Zero themed locations and a side game that has a more overall Nintendo focus (not everything and the kitchen sink like Smash) could be good. I'd love Sony to do a kart racer that focuses on all their first party stuff but that's never going to happen.

Agreed.

If there's one thing I'd like to see in a new Mario Kart, other than the characters and tracks, is for them to properly implement 200cc. The levels they created for Mario Kart 8 were not suited for the high speeds of 200cc IMO and it makes playing it really frustrating and difficult. If they actually build tracks with 200cc in mind this time around, I feel like it could be really fun.
