Anyone fancy posting their SMK time trial times? I like to have something to aim for and am really getting back into it now.

Mr Vengence... you want to do the TT thing in PM? I'm well looking forward to having something to aim for. I'm struggling to beat my own times! :lol:

Double Dash on the Gamecube. Why? I'm not sure, I just like the courses. Although the power slides are a bit annoying. In fact, they can be REALLY annoying. I've changed my mind - Super Circuit on the GBA.

My favourite version of Mario Kart is Double Dash. Love the idea and the crisp colours. Also loved the controls as they are tight and the Gamecube controller is so comfy you can play for hours.

Double Dash was the most fun IMO. The GBA version was pretty damn good, as was the DS one but the big screen Gamecube game wins hands down :)

Super Circuit for me, I still go back to it now. Ive never been able to get into a Mario Kart game as much as that one. Plus the four player mode with my mates absolutely kicked.

Fond memories of the snes one but the DS one beats them all hands down, good graphics, speed, controls are spot on and wireless and online multiplayer to boot, can't wait for mariokart 3DS!

The DS version is probably the best but nothing beats playing with friends, so I'll go for double dash.

I think it has to be the N64 one for me..... Just because it was an awesome game and the first 4 player one, as i didn't have the muti tap so for me it was like........ WOAH!

I'd go with the N64 version (due to hours played) followed closely by the ds which wasn't bad at all and then the wii, although none of the last two have had much in the way of playtime, i don't get the hours gaming any more like i used to and although i hammered my snes back then the snes versions mode 7 used to do my eyes in, making it totally unplayable to me.

Unbelievably I've only just played the original... Not having enough time playing it to weigh it up to the others I'll go with 64.
