Happy Anniversary, 90s Babies

The greatest decade to be born in American history was the 1990s. Fruit Stripe gum, gel pens, the Oregon Trail, DunkAroos, and Lunchables. Being a 90s kid was All That.

But February 10, 1997 was the day that really changed our lives forever. That was the day the most important video game of all time came to North America.

If you did it right, Mario Kart was a crucial part of your college experience. It's how roommates settled disputes. It's how pregame gatherings really got the party started.

Golden Eye, Zelda, and Super Smash Brothers are all iconic games in their own right, but no video game has ever had the widespread affect on a generation and a culture like Mario Kart 64.
