mario kart 64 - toad’s turnpike (nintendo 64)

man, the mk7 is pretty great, but nothing beats mk64. not even the original. i said it. what?

i know they keep imitating this course in the newer games, but i wish they would actually just remake it. specifically the mirrored version. it was the best. driving around in a stupid circle with idiot trucks flying right at you. it was S.T.R.O.N.G.

all of the music in this game was fantastic (frappe snowland, rainbow road), but this has got to be my favorite. well, maybe. see, now i don’t know anymore. cool.

well, the course was the best, and mk64 had the best voices and style of any mk. also, i think it was the last game to be devoid of those awful blue shells (no. they suck. you’re an idiot). i really miss how they had the voices and sounds distort as you drove past, and that some of the characters would scream bloody murder.

i feel like nintendo has really been lacking dark humor and/or weirdness as of late. even when they try to be creepy, it’s completely sugarcoated and purposefully overly-cliched.
