Top 10 Mario Kart Games That Don't Deserve to Be On the Worst Mario Kart Games List

The Top Ten

1 Mario Kart: Double Dash

Ugh this game is the ONLY REASON why people hate daisy HI I'm DAISY I know but a stupid catch phrase is why people hate this and daisy

Is it because of Peach & Daisy or are you preferring modern Mario Kart over classic Mario Kart for nothing?

Great tracks, and fun gameplay! There is no such thing as a bad Mario kart game! They are all awesome! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Diddy Kong, Waluigi, Daisy, King Boo, Paratroopa, Petey Piranha, Birdo... all new characters, all new popularities! So why didn't Diddy Kong and Birdo return to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe?!?

Mario Kart 8 stinks! You can bring back the lighting, red shell, spiny shell and the blooper back, but not the mega mushroom? They introduced garbage-like new items.

The item distribution sucks. The contestant on 2nd place gets 3 red shells, but the poor guy on 9th gets only lame coins and single mushrooms? Why? That is because the distribution is based on distance, not placement. Terrible!

Oh my god, the Battle Mode. The battle arenas in former kart games were varied, but now the battle arenas were remixed? What the FREAK?

The roster is crap! Why do cool characters like honey queen, dry bones, diddy kong, king boo, birdo, dry Bowser, funky kong, petey piranha and Bowser jr get cut? Why do others like dixie kong, kamek, and nabbit don't even get considered?

Best courses ever, but Bone Dry Dunes was glitched. The underwater music in Piranha Plant Slide was removed and the downloadable content retro courses were nerfed.

The new characters are crazy! ...more

Mario Kart 8 should stay at number 1. Mario Kart Wii should move to the very bottom. The Mario Kart Arcade DX game should be higher up. Mario Kart 7 should move up one place. Everyone else, I don't know what to do. - recaller

Dolphin Shoals was the #1 worst course in Mario Kart 8. The ravine background music of this course was rubbish and sounded like the fall of Kyoto. It's all rage and boredom. Hard to believe how Wendy was the regular staff ghost for this course when lakitu should be the staff ghost. Hard to perform wheelies and tricks on the grand Unagi eel.

Mario Kart 8 is such an awesome game that it shouldn't be in the worst list but the item distribution, battle mode, and the character roster are the only things that suck in this game. I still LOVE Mario Kart 8 though!

Childhood in a nutshell

I can't believe people say modern Mario Kart is better than classic Mario Kart! This game sucks! What does "Childhood in a nutshell" mean, by the way?

My first good racing game.

I always played this as a kid. Ah the memories.

(and that's what "childhood in a nutshell" means, by the way.)

4 Mario Kart 64

Mario Kart 64 is top 1, not Mario Kart: Double Dash! I don't know why people prefer the newer Mario Kart over the older Mario Kart! It's evil & silly!

Why is Double Dash top 1 instead of 64?! Princess Peach has a much better voice in 64 than Double Dash! This list is awful.

This deserves to be top 1 for sure!

This list is an insult! If you hate annoying voices, then you might want Double Dash, DS, Wii, 7 & 8 on the worst list. Trust me, Mario Kart 64 deserves to be at least top 2.

5 Mario Kart 7

This is the best mario kart to date.

What I didn't know this game was so hated. I've played every game in the series and this one ties with double dash as my favorite.

This is the best

6 Mario Kart Wii

This is the best. Only 2000's kids will ever know!

I want to punch whoever made this list.

Mario Kart 64 deserves to be top 1 on this list, not Double Dash!

7 Super Mario Kart

I can't believe this is top 6. This is the best Mario Kart game ever! Double Dash is the worst.

This should be top 1! Seriously, why is this game lower than Double Dash, 8, Wii & DS?! WHY?!

8 Mario Kart: Super Circuit

This deserves to be top 1! This is one of the best Mario Kart games ever, not Double Dash!

All of these are great. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Not my favourite, but shouldn’t be #1 on the worst list

9 Mario Kart Virtual Cup

Even as a cancelled game, this game deserves first place.

10 Mario Kart Arcade GP

That is too bad..

I can't get 1st place on this game!

The Contenders

11 Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

It's basically Mario Kart 8 but with a Proper Battle Mode and Bowser Jr, Dry bones and more.


12 Mario Kart Arcade GP 2
13 Mario Kart Arcade GP DX

I loved the 2 players in one kart idea in this game! 2 crossover characters in one kart, of course! I just hate Princess Peach!

14 Mario Kart 9

Like an Angels Kiss

Enough with the Jon Tron references.

Uhh don't you mean Like an angel's kiss?
