But despite DKR being the epitome of the genre back in 5th gen, and CTR being a bigger game than MK64, I still prefer the simplicity of MK64.

Mario Kart 64 is unbereable

It baffles me that people shit on Mario Kart Wii and enjoy 64 even though the latter is probably the only N64 game I've played that's so early-3D-ish-awkwardness. Awful controls, unispiring graphic, hyper-cheating AI.

>F-Zero was on the same fucking console and so was its predecessor
F-Zero started on the SNES. Why would you even compare the two series? They aim for totally different types of gameplay.
No shit, F-Zero has rubberbanding too. You sound out of your depth.

>> No.3178578

>without breaking the game

It is a race, if my enemies and only them have the magical ability to go faster to catch me up when I'm doing really good for extended periods of time it kinda breaks the point of a racing game.

I can understand how Mario Kart 64 is sort of a racing-party game (items duh) and it doesn't take itself too seriously, but that's not good balancing to keep up the challenge, that's cheating the rules to make up for bad AI.

I was just saying I prefer F-Zero on both Snes compared to Super Mario Kart and on N64 compared to Mario Kart 64, but I didn't mean to make any specific comparision.

The single player mode is admittedly pretty bad, but once you get good enough at it, there's really no point to playing single player anyways. This game is still one of my go-to games for N64 multiplayer; it's simple to pick up and play yet still tons of fun. Plus it's the best Mario Kart for drinking games.

I would argue that the Gamecube is better. It has the best Smash, the best Kart if you can get four good players together, WarioWare, Timesplitters, Super Monkey Ball, Soulcalibur 2, and Mario Baseball. That's just my non-retro opinion though.

MK64 is not a good competitive game. 007 Goldeneye works well as a competitive game. Like you could have skilled guys who would slaughter all other ones, despite the other guys practising for weeks... and get slaughtered again. MK64 isn't like that, if you get remotely good then it's all about the luck of the items and the fact you get better ones when behind make it even worse. I've heard of non-item games being set up, but it's really not the spirit of the game.

>> No.3178968


>MK64 is not a good competitive game

This is true. Double Dash is honestly better in that respect as characters are more unique(they have specials on top of different stats) and you're encouraged to try out different combinations of characters and karts.

Out of all the Mario Kart games, I can safely say that if you're good at Double Dash it doesn't really matter what items your opponents get. Any time I've played with people I pretty much always get first. Though, that could be just because I'd play as Diddy/Paratroopa in the Toad kart. Giant Bananas for defense and triple reds for offense.

But of course, Double Dash gets shat on be mouth-breathing MK64 fags.

>> No.3178982


I like Diddy Kong Racing anon but something about the package feels less cohesive to me. Driving isn't as tight, the characters aren't as interesting, the music isn't as good, the items aren't as good, etc.

I like it for the single player and the Land/Sea/Air gimmick though, I really do. It's a great game.

>> No.3179002

I enjoy Mario Kart in the way I enjoy Mario Party but the items and random bullshit really kill any serious level of competitiveness in those games. Diddy Kong Racing on the other hand is a simple kart game with enough variety to keep it interesting but doesn't go overboard to the point where it becomes silly and frustrating. Different strokes for different folks I guess
