Mario Kart 8 Beats Stern Competition To Become Eurogamer's Game Of 2014

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Mario Kart 8 Beats Stern Competition To Become Eurogamer's Game Of 2014

Racing to the finish

The Wii U had a solid 2014 in terms of software, with titles like Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Bayonetta 2 and Super Smash Bros. all gaining high scores and securing plenty of admirers.

Nintendo's console also picked up some much-needed momentum in commercial terms, too -- although as many industry analysts will tell you, it's still struggling to match the PS4 and Xbox One when it comes to awareness and third-party support.

Still, who needs those when you've got the best games, right? As if to hammer home just why Nintendo is untouchable in the video game arena, our friends at Eurogamer have just voted Mario Kart 8 as their game of 2014.

Not Destiny, not Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and not Dark Souls II, but Mario Kart 8.

And rightly so; Nintendo's latest racer is a complete and utter joy -- as you'll know if you were wise enough to consult our glowing review from the time of the release, or pick it up yourself.

Worthy winner.
Bayo 2's better, but MK8 is still great.



Oh yeah! one Goty for a Mario Kart! I can die in peace now ^^



It really shouldn't have honestly. Game has/had quite a number of issues.

Did YOU really just say that? o.o



Yay! Tied for my favorite for 2014. A strong Mario Kart entry.

The only issue is battle mode. For everything else this is the best Mario Kart ever, even battle mode is fun online.



Mario Kart 8 isn't my favorite Wii U game of 2014, let alone my overall GOTY, but it is up there and it's very deserving. This is a game that's going to thrive for years to come and provide countless hours of entertainment.

Character roster?

 

Yes, I'm still bitter about no King Boo :(



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
