Whenever the subject of playing Mario Kart came up in my childhood, in college or even last weekend, there’s always an expert debate to be had: who’s the fastest racer? One guy will swear its Bowser, another says Toad. It never ends, and we just get down to racing until our fingers bleed, and controllers get thrown when that inevitable blue shell comes flying out of nowhere.
There’s just something about this game that brings out the competitive streak in people and shit gets really real. We all have our favourite racers and now, with the newer editions, our favourite Karts. But who’s really the best?
Lucky for us, someone is finally using science for something useful and has figured that out.
