In August of 1992, Super Mario Kart was release for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The game was met with massive acclaim by both game critics and fans. One of the factors that led to the success of Super Mario Kart was due in part to the large cast of characters seen in previous Mario Bros. games. Another, was the uniqueness and diversity of the 24 tracks in the game that the player could race through against the computer or their friends. Over the years, more and more tracks and characters have been added to the game, as well as new game-play modes that allow you to battle the computer and other players.
    My own, most memorable experience, was when Super Mario Kart had first come out. It was a Friday, and my parents had just picked up my brothers and I from East End Elementary, they took us right to the local Blockbuster to rent some movies and games for the weekend. We ran right inside and up to the "new game" section, and there it was, Super Mario Kart. My best friend Sjaak stayed over for the weekend, and along with my brothers, we spent every waking minute racing against each other and trying to beat the game.
    Mario Kart is 24 years old today, and it couldn't look or play any better! With every iteration we receive, we get exactly what we are hoping for, great game play, great characters, and incredibly fun levels.  

 Rainbow Road is perhaps, one of the most iconic tracks in all of Mario Kart.
