Super Mario Kart Super Nintendo game cartridge. Nintendo was a pioneer in many ways, and of the best examples is Super Mario Kart for the SNES. The kart-racing sub-genre didn’t even exist before Mario and Bowser took to the miniaturized asphalt and dropped their banana peels for the first time. Since then, many clones have joined the karting club, but none have come close to the awesome balance and charm found in the original SNES classic. With wonderfully designed single-player levels (and many of them!) and the most addictive two-player battle mode to grace the platform, SMK will never be forgotten. It’s always amazing when the first is still the best, and Super Mario Kart definitely deserves the title amazing.
