Friday is here again! And it’s time for another TGFYV. This time round I’m sharing what’s currently trending on Youtube in terms of let’s plays: Mario Kart 8.
Yes, this kart game is back with its 8th main instalment to the franchise, having been released in Japan on May 29th and making its debut in Europe and North America on May 30th. And the current addiction over its adrenalin-pumping gameplay is very strong. It currently has an 88/100 on Metacritic with a user rating of 9.2 and an 88.26% score on GameRankings. Want to hear how it’s affecting Wii U sales? Check out Forbes take on it.
But for now, I’m here for TGFYV (Thank Goodness for Youtube Videos). So I’m here to share my favourite LPs of Mario Kart 8 – like literally every Youtuber I’m following is playing it now.

All these videos came out along the same week, i.e. this week. So enjoy watching them play through it! Personally Mario Kart has a soft spot in my heart ’cause I remember being ten and going over to a friend’s house, having them take out the nintendo 64 controllers and spending the entire day just racing each other, praying for a blue shell, hating the rainbow road and just generally getting both absolutely frustrated and laughing like crazy.
So watching all these videos just brings back so much nostalgia. I think Nintendo as a whole just does that to me.
Till next time!
