As a whole CTR, it is fun to master but also the experience for me was great I enjoyed the monthly new content it gives me reason to play and come back bit like smash, plenty of people return with a new update/character stage. CTR was my 2019 game and spend 612 hours with the game.

For a moment I thought, based on this thread title, that Crash Team Racing vs. Mario Kart was announced.

My brain exploded at the possibility.



CTR and Mario Kart 8 are both amazing games, but ultimately I have to give the nod to MK8 just barely for being 60fps, having a better soundtrack, and just overall being more polished.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Crash Team Racing is better.

That's mainly because Mario Kart is physically painful to play. If they let you change the controls so you could use the R button to accelerate then it'd be better, but as long as you have to hurt your thumb holding down the A button it's going to be inferior.



CTR > MK, this is something you can't convince me otherwise.

Not sure about Wii U version, but MK8DX has a setting where the kart accelerates itself, you only need to brake (Which I can assure you, it's only actually needed in 200cc and rather infrequently in 150cc).

I'm pretty sure the Wii U version didn't have that. It doesn't really help though, I want to accelerate myself, I just want to use the R button. You know, the default accelerate button in every other racing game on the planet. Why won't they let you just change the controls?

On the Switch you can remap the buttons on the controller in the system settings, so you could set a configuration where R does what the A button does for Mario Kart



At its heart, Crash is a PS1 game. Yes, easily the best Kart racing game of the 90s but it isn't able to keep up with two decades of Mario Kart evolution. Still impressed with how great it holds up, though.

Yeah the fact that with a graphical overhaul it still can still compete with the best of modern Kart racing is a testament to CTR's brilliance. MK8 is better, but Crash puts up a damn good fight.
