There are some games that I’ll almost always buy, simply because of the name. Super Mario. Street Fighter. The Legend of Zelda. Pokémon. Final Fantasy. Mario Kart. It isn’t just because of brand loyalty, but rather that the quality of these games is always of such a caliber that I’ve never felt disappointed. So when Mario Kart 8 came out last week, I didn’t wait for a single review before I rushed out and bought it.
