My brother and I fought over Yoshi ALWAYS.

I'm not sure how true our reasoning was, but to us, he was one of the fastest racers (beaten only by Toad), but was still heavy enough that big guys wouldn't crush us/make us spin out.
 
Actually, Toad only had the highest acceleration. Bowser, DK, and Wario had the highest top speeds but low acceleration due to their weight. They also barely lost any speed if they hit you.
 
I was always Peach because she was the only girl and I was maybe 10? when Mario Kart first came out? I forget.
 
Look. Toad, clearly Toad.

Obviously Toad.

It's not about winning, it's about who goes home with Princess Peach.

Now, is it probably freaky? Yes. Is he probably more like a dildo than a lover? I imagine so. But he's shaped like a mushroom penis mushroom look, what I'm saying is, my girlfriend is out of town and I seriously



have had too much caffeine and should stop talking right about now

Applicable part starts at 2:20... but if you haven't seen it, watch the whole thing.
 
At first I would pay with the heavy characters like Bowser for their durability. In battle mode I still used him most. Eventually I learned the value of acceleration and went with toad. He was just to easily spin-outable so I settled with luigi.[DOUBLEPOST=1400605286,1400605138][/DOUBLEPOST]Fun fact: bowser was so heavy that at top speeds he could make lighter characters lose a balloon by just hitting them.
 
This reminds me of going on go karts with my son this weekend, and getting rear ended by idiot pre-teens who think that "no bumping" doesn't apply to them.
 
Yoshi all the way. Who couldn't love those adorable noises he makes. Plus he is fast and maneuverable. While the big guys may have the top speed when you always have the blue shell after you, you need the acceleration to keep that lead.

Looking back I was so terrible to my friends in that game. When I would get a shell I would slow down in certain parts so I could knock them off the path (ex: wario's stadium, choco mountain). Then continue on to the goal as they cursed my name. Mmmhh, I need to get new friends who will actually play mario kart with me again. :devil:

Lets all cheese together on Rainbow road and skill 1/3 of the course.
 
I don't think I've ever played ANY Mario Kart games. Didn't play it on SNES, didn't play it on N64, and haven't owned a Nintendo console since the 64.

But then, I also don't like racing games in general.

If you ask me, racing was the backdrop. Screwing your friends is what Mario Kart was about. Racing is to Mario Cart as Space Exploration is to Chu Chu Rocket.
