Gameplay from the Super NES game Super Mario Kart, emulated in ZSNES. The start of a legend of gaming. The original SMK was unbalanced, brutal, and unrefined. It was also pretty much unlike anything wed ever seen before. It was a racing game, something wed seen before, but with Mario characters and items. It let us not only race the game, or our best times, or each other, but it also let us turn our aggression, built over the course of CPU-administered beatings, onto each other in direct battle. No wonder it spawned imitators. No wonder its a fixture on Nintendo systems. No wonder its a favorite. (Wait, I got an embed from Time Magazine? HLOY SIHT Wait, they linked to this on the Top Gear website? WHOA)
