Alright, I chose Wii U for the platform because it holds the newest Mario Kart installment, which is Mario Kart 8. Personally I think all but one of them are decent.

In my opinion, the worst Mario Kart game is Mario Kart Wii. While it has fantastic music and tracks, the other flaws it holds ruins it. The item balance sucks, it's too easy to get stuff like Golden Mushrooms and Bullet Bills. The Blue Shell appears a ton and words cannot even describe how much I HATE the stupid POW Block! It both sucks and is annoying! Blue Shells appear way too often, meaning if you're coming 1st it's pretty much a gamble. I like the character roster, but they made the characters too damn hard to get! Also, bikes have an unfair advantage over Karts. Yeah, that's just what I think but I don't enjoy Mario Kart Wii on many levels.

I also put Mario Kart Wii twice, sorry I was meant to say Mario Kart 7.

The original. It's just not a great game, even for its time, IMO - perma-split screen ruined it, along with awkward controls and a dumb item system.

The bottom screen in Super Mario Kart doesn't distract me. I didn't like how each character try to maintain a certain position based on the character selected by Player 1. Oh, and the computer being able to jump over your items for some reason.

I like some obscure games.

The first one.
No nostalgia attached but I don't dig the flat courses.
Console wars are like pissing contests. So yeah.

I would say Super Mario Kart...not to say it's a bad game, and it is pretty legendary considering the series it created...but going back to it after playing, say, Mario Kart 8, with all the additions the series has had over the years, makes it feel very bare bones

Hard to pick between 7 and 8. Probably 7 due to the red shells that dont stop for anything and the frequency of blue shells.

it also wasn't fair for CPUs to get special items

Very nice guys, I haven't seen this post in a little while.
I'm surprised none of you have really thought about Mario Kart Wii as the worst, I don't think I need to say why.
Super Mario Kart is still fun to play and people just don't like the tracks because they aren't unique. Well I say screw that, because these tracks define 'race tracks'.
I also like its music, a couple of 7's soundtracks sounded like absolute garbage.

I never mentioned my favorite two, which are Double Dash and DS. I will talk about it a different time.
