Game On

While Mario Kart may be frustating, I never felt the game is personal like a dominated player going spy to kill the heavy who is dominating him.

I think the items are what make the game fun but given how much people complain about it I'm surprised there isn't a no-item mode (or maybe there is, I don't own a switch to know).

Still, given what happened to melee perhaps is for the best lest people go No Items, Luigi Only, Rainbow Road.
