Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

With the latest installment of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, many believe for this current version of the game to be the best out of series.

is the winner in my book simply due to the fact that I have much more experience playing it. The nostalgia from playing the game outweighs the new one. Plus, the Wii remote comes more naturally to me than the Nintendo Switch. The memories and familiarity of the Wii game vastly overtakes Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Even though I favor the Wii version of the game, the overwhelming support of the players for the new release stays at the back of my mind when I consider the experience both provide me.

The fact of the matter is that the love for the new installment does not waver my love for the Wii game. It really only comes down to me growing up with this game. My allegiance to the Wii version remains. I remain loyal to this version. Mario Kart Wii is my favorite out of the series.
