Mario Kart Flashback

So I know I have been away for awhile. I will admit that I have been more than an average gamer lately. But just the other day I was digging through the archive of SNES games I have on my computer and I found Super Mario Kart.

This game was the first game of the Mario Kart series which has stood the test of time as a game series. Mario Kart all began in 1992.

If you are unsure what Mario Kart is… it is a Mario spin off kart racing game. Which you select your favorite Mario character to race with. While on the track you will see blocks that when driven over give you offensive or defensive weapons. While people will argue which Mario Kart game is the best. You can not disagree that this SNES classic is still fun to play to this day.

A little fun fact about the original Mario Kart, Guinness World Records ranked the original Super Mario Kart number 1 on the list of top 50 console games of all time based on initial impact and lasting legacy.

Now Mario Kart has evolved over time. Obviously as technology improves so does gaming. Now I have not played any of the newer Mario Kart games, the last one I played was Mario Kart Double Dash. I am sure though, the new games are just as fun as this classic SNES game. Here is a video of my flashback to the classic Super Mario Kart game. I hope you enjoy.

Here is a trailer of the newest Mario Kart; notice how much it has evolved.

Playing Super Mario Kart really brought me back. When games were much simpler but as a kid I would say were a lot more fun than most of the new games today. I remember having my NES system up until N64 came out. Non-the-less this game launched a very popular game series. It has gone from 16 bit graphic racing to 3D vision with a Nintendo 3Ds. They even have online game play for Mario Kart now. But there is still nothing better than playing the original game that started it all. Who knows it could even improve your skills on the current Mario Kart game (Mario Kart 7).

Until next time gamers… game on. And I will make sure to post more of gaming classic and new titles. So stay linked to this site.
