How do you pick just one favourite? With countless game series from Mario to Mario Kart, from Final Fantasy to The Sims there are endless choices series that have worked their way into our hearts.
What's your favourite?
Despite my obsession with some ridiculous niche games, I think if I had to sit down and pick out just one series of games as a favourite it would have to be Mario Kart.
I still remember the night I first bought a Nintendo DS. There was a torrential storm and I had just finished a shift at Hungry Jack's. There was no hope in hell of me making the ten minute walk home, so I hunkered down at the nearby EB Games as water came in through the ceiling.
With nothing better to do, I bought a DS bundle that included Mario Kart DS. Not the first Mario Kart game that I had played but easily my favourite.
When the storm finally relented, I made my way home to find that I had stupidly left the windows open all day and the power was out. I begged the neighbours for some candles and set to work drying the carpets.
After a few hours of rather unsuccessful stomping on towels, I pulled out my shiny new toy and played Mario Kart until the battery drained.
