Amazing Video Game!

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a great expansion of what was already an amazing game for the Wii U. Nintendo can't make bad games. I think it's pretty simple that they can do next to no wrong, besides the Wii U's launch itself. Mario Kart 8 is a wonderful: in every sense of the word. The gameplay is phenomenal, the graphics are indisputably gorgeous and the music is still riveting and nostalgic. F-Zero, The Legend of Zelda, Yoshi's Island, Donkey Kong, Mario: all the Nintendo references you can think of inhabit and give beautiful life to this milestone in gaming.

An absolute achievement in Nintendo's 100+ years of history, Mario Kart 8 is a beautiful reflection of what the company's achieved since the early 80s. The company may not have started out in gaming, but it's defined it since they made the transition to gaming in the 20th Century. This is the absolute best installment in the series.
