The Great Gawker Mario Kart 8 Tournament

If you've ever wanted to watch 24 Gawker Media employees scream at a game of Mario Kart, today is your lucky day.


Earlier this month, we gathered a whole bunch of our colleagues, including writers from Gizmodo, Deadspin, and our other sister sites, for what can only be described as the greatest Mario Kart tournament in Gawker Media history. It's full of twists, turns, and the type of light verbal harassment that only Mario Kart can inspire.

You can watch the whole thing up top there, cut down to 25 minutes of hot Mario Kart 8 action by Kotaku video editor Chris Person. We think you'll enjoy it. Also, fuck Rainbow Road.



I feel like the Kotaku staff has kind of an advantage when it comes to this field.

It's like Deadspin asking you guys to play football.
