Video Games I’m Thankful For (Part 14)

The 14th article in the “Video Games I’m Thankful For” series brings us back to the Nintendo 64. Though it wasn’t the first of its series, this game became a staple for my generation of gamers and continues to be the forefront in friendly competition among my friends. Let’s see what we have: 

Mario Kart 64

In my earlier years, this was among the top games in my repertoire. Playing the various cups over and over again, honing my skills, and improving the best scores each time was a great source of fun. My favorite character was Toad because, well, he’s awesome.

My favorite part of Mario Kart 64 was the balloon battles. A slight variation on actually racing, this mode offered numerous moments of frustration, excitement, and confusion – all of which were entirely fun.

Several more iterations of the Mario Kart series later, and they still offer countless hours of fun! I can’t wait to purchase a Wii U for myself and experience all the joys of Mario Kart 8!

What games are you thankful for? What games have a special spot in your heart?

Come back tomorrow for the next game of the series!
