"Wii is not killing any genre/gaming."
Wii KILLED mario kart damnit it takes no skill at all.
People who say that Mario Kart Wii takes no skill at all are usually the people who lack any sort of skill whatsoever.
That's my friend code. I am confident that I can beat you in an one on one race every single time, probably with ease. Feel free to prove me wrong.
I think that was the point, from what i've heard.
With the new Mario Kart, it doesn't matter whether your 'skillfull' or not, 'cos the entire game has been dumbed down.
You're also punished for being too good. Winning is almost a matter of chance now.
You didn't get Rol's point. He is skilled, and he almost always wins. This proves that skill is the biggest factor in the game, unlike what the non-skilled folks say (including many reviewers). Just ask the people who play every week in the VGChartz championships. If you still doubt it, you can of course play Rol or another 9000+ (or even 8000+) ranked player, and then you'll see.
Personally speaking, my rank is around 6500, and I can already see why skill is the biggest factor in this game. When you first start playing, it can often seem that it's too random, but that's just because you haven't gotten used to the game yet.
