    If you had to choose a video game franchise/series for a mascot racing game, which would you go for?

    Super Mario Kart is the first mascot karting game and quickly became the largest to date. It was so inspiring that Crash Bandicoot, Pac-Man, Final Fantasy and even Rayman made their own to cash in on the demand for this genre.

    If it were up to you, which characters would you have in your own racing game? I'd probably have Spyro the Dragon (for its level designs and huge cast) or Medievil (for it's breathtaking worlds and soundtrack).

    Sonic and Sackboy also had kart racing games. I remember there was one year that Electronic Gaming Monthly did an April fools joke that a lord of the rings racing game was coming soon. It would have been pretty convincing if the concept wasn't so laughable.

    Having said that, I'd kind of like to see a Zelda themed racing game. They would be on horses, instead of karts, and would be racing around various areas from the franchise. They might get some letters from Peta if the game involved knocking horses off the road, but it would be a unique take on the genre. Or, they could resurrect the mini game from Majora's Mask and make Goron Racing. Is it nerdy that I really want this to happen now?

      Thanks also for the reminder of those games, and that LOTR idea seems pretty funny! Your idea is pretty cool but I've never played the Zelda games much, but I know how good it would be to have a horse racing game with LoZ's characters and locations!

    I'd have to say Metal gear Solid would make a good racing game, it would be good to hear Liquid shout out random phrases, and the fact that I love Metal Gear Solid 1, 2 and 3, never played 4 so I can't really comment on that one but would really like to play it

    This is going to sound kind of odd but I will have to say Bioware's Mass Effect.
    Make the carts upper futuristic like F-zero or Wipeout. Attacks would be based on the characters powers sets and weapon preferences. Kind of difficult to do for the Shepard(s) though. 

    You left out Mega Man and his racing game for the original PlayStation.

      A good choice there! I can imagine it looking like Star Fox but as a racer! As for MM, I didn't have enough characters to add every mascot racing game, but I will look into that one! ^^
