We can all agree this is the best Mario Kart right?
The best handling and map design. Best multiplayer too

>> No.4211753

Yeah, that mode 7 muhstolgia trumps all around better design.
Even without that I'd still put my vote towards Double Dash. I went into it as a full skeptic after avoiding it for years (picked it up used for less than $20 around 05 or 06) and was surprised by how great it actually was, easily my favorite in the series.

>> No.4211754

MK64 has the best Battle Mode. That's it. Otherwise the track designs are lacking.

The only thing DD suffers from is that it made so many now classic tracks that they feel so old and outplayed. Wish there was a patch or something to add a fuckton of maps. Everything about double dash is great and actually requires some level of skill

But Mario/Luigi/Peach raceways are the peak of MK circuit design.
And I agree with OP about MK64 having the best handling.

>> No.4212087

>The best handling and map design
I'll give you map design,but subsequent games all improved on handling. Just because it's the handling that you're most comfortable with (probably because it's the game you've played the most) doesn't mean it's the "best".

In my opinion, Mario Kart 8 has the best handling. Moving the karts just feels completely natural. In MK64 and DD, the whole cart swings out weirdly in the opposite direction that you are steering. It makes it feel super awkward to avoid hazards. Sometimes the best way to miss a banana peel is to actually steer towards it.

>> No.4212092

>nostalgia: the post
I'm a pretty hardcore nostalgiafag, but even I have to admit that MK8 is where its at.

>> No.4212096


nah, MK8 is the best. The lack of bots and music while in 3-4 players really hurts mario kart 64. There's no better battle mode in the series though, i'll give you that.

>> No.4212145


Hahaha oh wow.

>> No.4212147

No. The AI is rubberband bullshit, there's a tiny number of tracks and they're not even all good, it looks like ass, and it simply isn't as fun as you remember it. Exceeded by pretty much every other entry in the franchise, and on N64 specifically Diddy Kong Racing is better in essentially every way.

Explain yourself?

>> No.4212183

Who said I had trouble with it, numbnuts? You can have mastery of a game and still acknowledge its flaws; in fact being intimately familiar with the mechanics makes recognizing flaws much easier. Making CPU characters exceed the normal in-game limitations for things such as speed is bullshit, a moron's idea of difficulty.

I put in dividers where I think there are tier gaps. MKDS and MKDD are good at pretty much everything. MK8 is great except for battle mode. Every battle mode from wii onward is terrible due to them changing balloon mode from survival to shitty timed mode. MK7 just feels like a lesser version of MK8 (with one exception: rainbow road in MK7 is one of my favorites in the series). MK64 has some awesome tracks and by far the best battle Mode in the series, but I dock points for the racing multiplayer being bad (which is odd given how fun multiplayer battle is). SMK holds up well in the battle department and not much else, I used to rank it second best for me and MK64 third but I eventually managed to get the nostalgia goggles off and realized they're both heavily flawed but fun games. MKSC just feels like a worse SMK, and MKWii had so much potential but is ruined by the horrific controls (and shitty battle mode which is present in MK7 and MK8 as well, but those games have good controls and about the same quality of track design).

Obviously this is all prett subjective; I could easily see someone liking SMK best. I think the only things about the series most people agree on is that battle mode after MKDS sucks and the controls in wii (yes, even the Non-motion controls) are terrible.

"Active" might be too strong a word. The championships are really small, have crowds of maybe 20-30 people, and it's literally just two people playing regular 150cc difficulty.

Pretty boring to watch.

Good control/handling, but snaking was terrible. Especially in online play, where you HAD to do it because everyone else was doing it.

>> No.4212403

Even without snaking I felt like the controls were as good as the series has seen. Double Dash would be #1 if you could hop.

He's right though, MKDS isn't retro and it's the only one worth discussing (snaking is godly and you're a shitter if you complain about it)

CTR is truly the best kart game in existence.

Just replayed it on a N64 and holy shit. This game controls like a tank, is slow as fuck and the graphics are eye cancer inducing. MK64 aged very poorly and every MK after it is a major improvement.

What makes the multiplayer racing in 64 bad?

Major complaint: Screen too zoomed in even with camera out as far as possible. This is fine in single and even 2 player, but 3/4 player is almost impossible to see anything this way.
Minor complaint: No music
Minor complaint 2: Random ass bombs on the track instead of just leaving the tracks the way they are in single player
