Top Ten Reasons Why Mario Kart 64 Is Better Than Mario Kart Double Dash


The Top Ten

1 It's more nostalgic

Nostalgia blindness is not a valid reason for a game to be superior.

Well duh mario kart 64 came out before dumbass. - spodermanfan1000

And...? - DaisyandRosalina

Eh, this troll is not worth my time. Nostalgia is a construct of human perception. What if people grew up with the GameCube? Therefore, MK:DD is nostalgic also. You can't say a game is better because it's more nostalgic because you could say BOTH are nostalgic. - DCfnaf

2 It was clearly one of the foundations for the series

Let's see what some of those foundations are...
- Atrocious Controls
- Rubberbanding
- Ugly 2D Character Sprites
Quite the foundations for Mario Kart indeed! (sarcasm) - greenshyguy

Mario Kart 64 and its predecessors made the series. Double Dash did nothing but solve the problem of daisy not being in the series - Gamecubesarecool193

Mario Kart Doube Dash was also the game who changed the sequels from classic to modern sooo... - DaisyandRosalina

3 Mario Kart 64 has better graphics

I like both games but MK64 is the game I have had most fun playing. MKDD! has Daisy and Toadette though, which is a very good thing. I like the graphics more in MK64, the courses look much cooler and they have better colors. At least the graphics are more appealing to me.

They're retro and cool. - Gamecubesarecool193

HAH! Thought you said mario kart 64 had better graphics...oh... - spodermanfan1000

This is obviously false. - DCfnaf

4 Mario Kart 64 had Double Mirror

I thought it was cool - Gamecubesarecool193

5 Double Dash didn't introduce anything except 2 riders per car

What did 64 introduce? Double Dash introduced new characters, items, tracks, special items, stats, karts... - DCfnaf

No it introduced special items and new characters and different karts and their stats and new items. I see that gamecubesarecool never played double dash... - spodermanfan1000

He's so hypocritical. His name is game cubes are cool yet he hates double dash for dumb reasons. - DCfnaf

Lol, 64frick detected - Maddox121

Yeah, except new characters, new karts, unlockable things, Toadette first appearence, complete 3D graphics, new items, all cup tour, LAN mod, stats and more battles types. - DaisyandRosalina

And the three-second countdown (3, 2, 1, GO! You know what I mean), final lap music to be one key note higher, item loss when you fall into a pit.

6 Mario Kart 64 got a better review on IGN than Double Dash

Has nothing to do with most peoples' tastes. Who listens to a site to form an opinion anyway?

Game Theory fans. Because they are dumb and believe anything they hear. - DCfnaf

IGN is the spawn of satan if you ask me. And just because IGN is popular doesn't mean there right. IGN SUCKS. - spodermanfan1000

Meh... This is a stupid reason.

And...? - DaisyandRosalina

7 Mario Kart 64 Introduced more characters than Double Dash introduced

Nope. 64 had 8 and double dash had 12 new characters. Do your research before you spout lies.

Mario Kart Double Dash had 11, 64 had 2. - DaisyandRosalina

How about you shut your mouth

What? What are you talking about? The characters in Super Mario Kart were Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Toad, Koopa, Bowser, and DK JR. The new characters in 64 were...WARIO and DK. The new characters in Double Dash were Daisy, Waluigi, Birdo, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Paratroopa, Toadette, Diddy Kong, Bowser Jr, King Boo, and Petey Piranha. Yeah, this list has FACTUAL stuff wrong. - DCfnaf

8 It has a far better Rainbow Road graphically and musically, despite no challenge and ramps

GCN Rainbow Road > N64 Rainbow Road in my opinion - greenshyguy

Rainbow road in mario kart double dash looks more amazing and has good music and is challenging and thrilling. - spodermanfan1000

N64 Rainbow Road is boring and long. - DCfnaf

The N64 Rainbiw road was one of the most boring tracks ever. - DaisyandRosalina

9 No "HI, I'M DAISY!"

This reason is stupid... "HI I'M DAISY" Is way Better than "PEACH! " and "WALUIGI TIME! ".

This sounds stupid when you realize that this person dislikes a game because of a quote said by a character he/she hates. It's stupid and a little funny if you think about it. Also, I personally love Princess Daisy and dislike Daisy haters and others who hate something because of a small, pointless thing you shouldn't be concerned about in the first place.

Who vote for this is stupid -_-

Daisy haters are stupid. They think their opinions are facts and they hate a game because of one quote. At least she doesn't say "WA! " - DCfnaf

10 Better Tracks than Double dash

Mario kart double dash had way better tracks. - spodermanfan1000

Some tracks were so boring: rainbow road, moo moo farm... - DaisyandRosalina

Double Dash has better tracks in my opinion. - DCfnaf

Better tracks? The Mario 64 tracks are too long and monotonus!

The Contenders

11 Better soundtrack

You know why? I always meant to be more detailed. It's because of Frappe Snowland's music. But hey, Nintendo has also put in quite a lot of effort in MK: DD's music.

12 No Birdo in 64
