Do any of you have something you're randomly really good at, but you never have a chance to show it cause it's too random/obscure?
I have several of these, but one that I think you'll recognize is SNES Mario Kart.
To me, the SNES Mario Kart is the most legit in the series. The N64 version is good too, but the system is retarded because the characters with the best speed ALSO have the best control. (Peach/Toad I think).
In SNES, Bowser and DK have the best speed and worst control. Thus, noobs like to play Toad/Peach (Bad speed, good control), while veterans use Bowser/DK.
Also, it has the craziest advanced techniques. Not only is there the constant hop/drift technique, but now there are like 10 variations of it, one of which actually requires you to mod your controller.
Anyway, I'm not that hardcore, and frankly, today's world records are just insane, but I have gotten really close to past world records. Anytime I had downtime or felt bored, I would play the game and eventually racing your best ghost gets extremely addicting. One of games I most consistently play on the emulator.
