> not playing best karts

>> No.3615769

Fuck yeah it does.

If only for the great battle mode but I also really enjoy the mechanics, character balance and circuit design. I've spent a lot of hours beating my ghosts in trial mode and had genuinely fun. I also did this recently, I didn't care about it back when I was a kid, I only played it with friends sometimes but didn't care too much about it as I did with other games that I liked more back then.
Went back to it recently and enjoyed it fully. I didn't even know how to drift back then. I couldn't read english back when I was a kid so I never read the manual in detail. So it's not nostalgia for me, the game holds up pretty well.
Probably visually is better to use a CRT, because I imagine the sprites and 3D maps would clash a lot on modern HD screens.

>> No.3615781


>> No.3615784

It was great at the time but there's little reason to go back to it now with so many great sequels, I suppose the battle stages are worth revisiting.

It always bugged me how there was no music in multiplayer but that was Nintendo's decision to have no dedicated sound chip biting them in the ass I'd imagine.

>> No.3615792


>Probably visually is better to use a CRT, because I imagine the sprites and 3D maps would clash a lot on modern HD screens.

It's straight-up magic on a CRT, it never even occurred to me I was looking at sprites as a kid. It was designed with the hardware in mind though, even the Wii virtual console release upscales it and makes it pretty obvious.

What's wrong with SNES Kart?

>> No.3615803

It's not bad by any means. It's just the most primitive and dated entry. Super Circuit is better in every way.

>> No.3615887





Mario Kart is one of the few few series where I actually like the newer ones as much or better than the retro ones. The retro ones are still very good, too.

>7 and DD in god

>> No.3616123

i can see why it'd bore players used to the newer ones but imo it's kind of got this perfect simplicity to it. the courses are all very memorable and fun to get good at and the roster's small enough for you to get accustomed to how every character feels. idk ever since double dash the games have felt kinda bloated to me. the wiiu one is just nonsense in that regard. it has so much shit in it that nothing feels memorable and the anti-grav gimmick feels really contrived and unsubstantial to me.

>> No.3616445

Handles like you're turning the map, rather than driving a car, with weird acceleration and drift momentum, and while the character sprites look alright, the flatass mode 7 tracks look bad

>> No.3616452

The new ones are obviously better but 64 is still fun. I still think it's a blast to play today with friends. Great tracks and block fort is as fun as it was 20 years ago. My only complaint in the new ones is that in battle mode you play on race courses and not original arenas, really sucks. If possible go for the new ones but I wouldn't feel bad if 64 is all you have.

>> No.3616921


I only play Time Trial for any Mario Kart game, so my experience is a bit limited.

>> No.3617000

It's better playing the newer ones, but yes. The handling and turning are much better since SMK, and there's more visiblity to see around.

I would switch places between DS and DD. Besides that, I agree.

Pretty sure you can hold R or something to turn better.

Super Mario Kart is still the best one, IMO. The tracks are tightly designed, the controls are responsive, and the pace feels rampant and fast. And I like the 16-bit sprite look.

>> No.3617261

I know its just because it was the first game I ever beat but I still play the snes mk a few times a month and I still think its the best. The only mk i dislike is the namco arcade.

Tiptup is easy mode.

I say this because I can only beat the game with tiptup.

It's still my favorite MK. The new ones are okay, but they don't have the same kind of momentum and control as MK64. They feel sluggish in comparison.

Of course it holds up.
But you know what doesn't hold up?
An N64 analog stick.

>> No.3618192

Actually Wario Stadium is my distant second least liked course after Rainbow Road.

I used to like it a great deal, but after becoming skilled at the game, you realize Stadium is too long, and if you get spread out there is too little opportunity to recover because the curves get in the way of all the items (unless you know the quirks of the game). To top it off, it's just a clusterfuck of shortcuts that require gentleman's agreements not to exploit (we still allow shortcuts around the final corner).

Nope. The newer games can be entertaining because of the controls, but they are ADD messes.

Why do people praise DS Mario Kart? Is it because of snaking?

>> No.3618793

It has a lot more going for it than just snaking.

It just had a shitload of content. Being the first Wi-Fi Mario Kart also.

>> No.3618795

One of these days I'll find an N64 controller with a not-broken stick.
I missed my chance in the past, and now they're all loose and broken. Every. One.

Even the 3rd party ones come with pre-broken analog sticks to emulate the real things. Life is frusting.

For all the anons that love Snes MK, check out pic related if you haven't already. it's basically the exact same thing with a couple improvements and just features konami characters instead.

I mean yeah, the best tracks are Luigi, Mario and Royal Raceways if you care about drifting and mini turbo only, but Wario Stadium is top-tier.
