Choco Mountain The History of Mario Kart 64's Most Infamous Track

My son signed up for Nintendo Switch Online and with the subscription came access to about 20 classic NES games. Although the box art excited him he didn’t think much of the games themselves. I totally get it.

I, however, got hooked on playing Super Mario Bros., which led to watching some speedruns, which led to a YouTuber (and speedrunner) Summoning Salt. His documentaries of speedruns are so well done you don’t even have to care about the game to enjoy them. I found myself watching the entire fifteen minutes on the history of Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!! world records (it’s good!).

Even better is this one about a glitch and world record chase in Mario Kart 64.

Next I’d recommend this one about Mario 64.
