This is because Mario Kart Wii is awesome. At the time it was the best Mario Kart. I don't care what anyone else says.

Freaking amen. I never understood the hate it got, it's the best in the series after MK8 in my book.

SSSHHHH !! You gonna hurt DD fans sensibility if you continue like that.

I still see it in the Amazon top 100 everytime I check so not surprised it's still selling. I have to wonder why people are still buying after the Wii died and was discontinued though...



Oh wow what kind of longevity. Can't believe the game is 11 years old lol, time really flies.



I remember when the game was five or six years old and it was still selling out during Christmas season. Saw desperate ads on Austin craigslist asking to buy used copy from someone for 60 dollars.

We Double Dash fans are used to other people voicing incorrect opinions on the best MK ;P

That was because of "the casualz!!" Mario Kart Wii was criticised for being a casual game by many gamers, just like basically every other Wii game Nintendo published back then. Of course, every other Mario Kart game would qualify as "casual", too. But back then it was a big deal and people used it as an example to prove that the Wii wasn't for real gamers. I wrote the vgchartz review for the game and oh boy, the war was real.

I guess the Arms sequel, Legs, was actually here all along ... and came 9 years earlier 

Sometimes, that thing you're searching for your whole life is right there by your side all along, and you don't even know it.

Eh, it's crap. But then again, so are most Mario Kart games pre-8.

I lean DD and the nostalgia for the original SNES version, but loved the Wii version all the same and have no issues with those that liked that one best.



I was never a big fan of MKWii honestly. My favorites are MKDS, MK7, MK8(D), in that order.

But damn, 100k for a 10-yr-old twice-succeeded (arguably thrice-succeeded) game? That's intense.
