Who doesn't love Mario Kart? Apparently, not Jimmy Fallon. The popular (and everyone's favorite) late-night talk show host for The Tonight Show just showcased his love for the game by trying to school NASCAR's best drivers with a Mario Kart game, of course.
Just before the Final Sprint Cup race, NASCAR top drivers Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch, Joey Logano and Carl Edwards showed up at The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to find out who is really the best in race car driving at Mushroom Kingdom and who could topple late night talk show host's current position as number one. Fallon called the Mario Kart 8 Challenge as "the real man's game".
So who won among Baby Mario, Luigi, Lemmy and Yoshi. And who won the race against Fallon's Bowser. Check out the Youtube video below to know who is the best among the Mario Kart racers.
Now if you think Fallon is a noob in video games, better think again as his love for games can clearly be seen in his show, injecting bits of video game demos and trailers. Even his love for Mario Kart 8 was demonstrated when he and singer Selena Gomez sang a Mario Love Song cover together. Fallon even challenged Ronda Rousey to a Mario Kart race once. And who would forget his Tweet professing his love for the game?
Game Of The Year so far for me is MarioKart 8 on the WiiU. Best with WiiU Pro controllers. Bowser. Sport bike. Slick tires.

Mario Kart 8 was first released in 2014 and is the eighth installment of the Mario Kart series developed by Nintendo for the Wii U platform. It won The Game Award for Best Family Game and The Game Award for Best Sports/Racing Game. It is popular for the addition of the anti-gravity feature where it allows players to drive on any surface.
