    Now that I think about it, I know why I've been relatively bored lately save for Team Fortress 2 and Rock Band: I haven't gotten a new game since No More Heroes. I crave a new console experience really badly, and I only have the money for one or the other. I really can't decide, since I really want both games a lot.

    So, which? Mario Kart Wii or Grand Theft Auto IV?

    Mario Kart gets old fast, get a copy of GTA4 for sure.

    By no means is GTA4 the greatest game ever but it's a whole bunch of fun and should last a long time.

    Me personally I could care less if I play GTA4(wouldn't do half the missions anyways, just end up downloading a complete game save and sandbox exploring). So I'd go with Mario Kart, just my personal preference though....

    I'd go with GTA4 if i owned either a PS3 or 360.
    But since I don't own either (yet), I'll get Mario Kart

    Why couldn't it be more like "(even though I don't have a damn 360 yet)"? [​IMG]

    Because he plans to buy a PS3 over the 360...
    Why do 360 fanboys try to recruit more 360 owners?

    And who is being a fanboy? I was just joking. Loosen your panties [​IMG]

    BTW: I own a PS3 myself along with a 360. I just don't play it much for the fact that there are no appealing games on it except for Ridge Racer unfortunately.

    EDIT: Finally I got some of the quotes removed.

    I have Mario Kart and I like it.
    But if you own consoles for both games...
    think about what you'd rather like!
    mostly racing => MK WII (that's really fun...personaly only beaten by WiiFit but that's my problem)
    adventure style and gangsta habbit => GTA IV

    Well if you emphazized graphic, you wouldn't even asking this....

    Definitely GTA4.

    There is also online multiplayer racing in GTA4, which I feel is much more fun than Mario Kart. One of my facing racing modes is Cannonball Run, which sets the players on foot and they have to reach the the finishing line located on the other side of the island. The players are able to use/steal any vehicles and take any path to reach the goal.

    c'mon guys where's the MK love? IMO, GTA is really too mainstream and overrated(not saying that MK isn't, just to a lesser degree). Go with Mario Kart.
