    I like Mariokart 7 because it has 3D and is portable, and i prefer that over the better graphics and new items (which there are like 2 of) in mariokart 8 (although i really like the Mariokart 8 DLC Courses)

    Wherever you want me, baby.

    Better graphics, smoother gameplay, many other reasons.

    Same reasons as stated above, everything about it is better.

    MK8 is better.
    It plays better, its controls are way better (the 3DS makes my hand get tired too quick), the graphics in MK8 are beautiful. And I think I have played it so much more than MK7, that I just like it out of habit also.
    MK7 is also great, being portable and everything. BUT I HATE THE LOCAL MULTIPLAYER REGION LOCK SO MUCH THAT IT CAN BURN IN HELL KTHXBYE.

    You see, I live in Europe and I have an European 3DS, but I travel from time to time to Argentina (American 3DS region), and I like to play with my friends.
    Back in the awesome Mario Kart DS days, it was all great. But Nintendo had to fuck it up.
    Perhaps an update fixed the region lock local multiplayer problems (yeah sure, Nintendo), but I ragequit trying to play local between different region handhelds after the first time frustration.

    PS: Also fuck 3D, it is a beautiful gimmick for cutscenes, and it also looks great in Majora's Mask (really, it looks great there), but no chance I enable it for MK7, I move a lot when playing with friends (you know, just to laugh at them when I blueshell one of them e.g.) and the 3D doesn't work good there, actually it gives me headaches.

    I think Mario Kart 7 is overall a better challenge I might like it more because of that. Mario Kart 8 is really really easy, the track design is too forgiving. I love MK8 though. It has so much content. Also I got MK7 new for like 20$ when MK8+(indispensable dlcs) is ~70$. Maybe 50$ if you get some kind of deal.

    MK8 is my favorite Mario Kart. It's superior in just about every conceivable way, minus the battle mode. I think it'll be a hard game to top, honestly

    TBH kart is just a series that gets better with every game so the newest is always the best (unless you like the characters or courses of a previous game)

    I'm trying to figure out how you played a 3DS game with a gamecube controller... unless you're thinking of a different game.

    I don't know about that, for me double dash was the best with its 2 person mechanic but mk8 is a close second

    Played it as it was my first kart but me and my sis never liked it as we preferred vs. Mode but having two characters on you kart was pretty cool (Mario + dk ftw)
