The Mario Kart franchise has been one of the most successful selling franchises Nintendo has ever created. It started back on the Super Nintendo and has made one appearance on every console Nintendo has released since that time. You can pretty much bet that if a Nintendo system is sold it will have a Mario Kart game on it. Many people would even label it one of the best games that could be considered a system seller for the company. It’s so successful that it has been one of the best selling, if not THE best selling game on systems for the last two generations.
Recently the question was posed as to whether or not Mario Kart 8 could be the worst selling game in the franchise and could it potentially be bad enough to kill the franchise. I, personally, am not sure it would do that poorly, but it was an interesting question none-the-less and so I decided to do a little bit of research.
For the record you can drift with the GameCube controller. However, you cannot drift if you pick automatic. Okay, now that we got that out of the way how about watching this week’s Go Round of Mario Kart Wii?

Yet again, Tony and I embark on a journey to spread video game knowledge around the world. Thankfully, the knowledge spreads smooth and creamy like some sort of manufactured cheese. Eww. This week’s show is all about board games, Super Mario Kart and dolphins. Then, the moment has finally arrived. I sit in The Hot Seat and Tony grills me on Metroid games. How will I do?
