Mario Kart 8, wheels down!! :D

Around the Network

Mario Kart 8.

Mario Kart 8 is the best I've played, by a mile.

I'd say the worst is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It didn't improve on the WiiU game substantially, but it seemingly did make the launch of Mario Kart 9 slide waaay off into the future.

Diddy Kong Racing.

Its MK8

It's not best but I think it was Street Racer PS1 that I played a lot back in day. Was trying to find out what the kart racing game was called and I think this is the one I played.

Best I would give to MK8

Around the Network

Mario Kart Wii or Crash Team Racing.

To be honest I've only played Diddy Kong Racing and a few Mario Kart games (and a demo of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, I guess), but the only one I've ever enjoyed was Mario Kart 8. Every other one either felt too clunky, too chaotic, or just too boring.

Me too, though I still haven't played MK8, so I'd say my favorite is MK7

Mario Kart Wii. I do like that Mario Kart 8 has more content, but the mechanics feel a little off. I think it is how they do the coins.

In Mario Kart Wii the mechanics feel just right. I wish they brought back the Mario Kart Wii mechanics but with lots of tracks and characters like Mario Kart 8.

Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed! It is my favourite racing game ever! The speed is great, the controls, drifting feels so much better than in any Mario Kart. I prefer the roster as well in Sonic. The music is also so great. The main campaign is so much fun to play either solo or with friends. I'd honestly still be playing it if there was a port for Switch, as I don't fire up the Wii U these days. I'm hoping Team Sonic Racing is a good follow up, though I do not expect it to match SRT

This. I've logged in for probably the first time in about 7 years just to agree with this comment. It tops the Mario Kart series and CTR for me, which are games that I adore. On top of everything you've said, the tracks are so imaginative, the transition from car/boat/plane is so perfect and seamless and the trophies/achievements on the PS3/Xbox versions are the perfect difficulty. So much love for this game, I encourage everyone to try it if they love kart racers!

Crash Team Racing is the best one I've played.
