F-Zero Memorial Video
« on: November 04, 2014, 08:46:21 AM »

Take a trip down memory lane and enjoy a look back at Nintendo's futuristic racing series.

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/video/38915/f-zero-memorial-video

Our friends at Third Rate Minion have created a wonderful video retrospective that delves into the history of F-Zero.

Nintendo turned 125 this past September, and that is a milestone not many companies can celebrate.  However, there is another anniversary that Nintendo has not addressed; this fall marks ten years without a new F-Zero game.

F-Zero began as one of the first four titles developed by the newly-created Nintendo EAD, headed by Shigeru Miyamoto, alongside the likes of Pilotwings, Super Mario World, and SimCity.  Since then, F-Zero has had games release on the Satellaview, Nintendo 64, 64DD, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo GameCube, and arcades.  However, since 2004's F-Zero GP Legend (and in Japan F-Zero Climax) the series has been left dormant.

This video takes a look at those many games in the F-Zero series. What are some of your memories from the F-Zero franchise? Let us know!

Be sure to check out the Third Rate Minion website and to subscribe to their YouTube Channel. Watch the entire retrospective below.

I dunno, I think the SNES one's pretty good, and I didn't even play it until the VC so that's not nostalgia. Certainly holds up better than Super Mario Kart. The GBA ones do suck, though.
I'm kind of a snarky bastard.

Are you calling the first F-Zero and Maximum Velocity bad?

No mention of the Blue Falcon in Mario Kart Wii? That thing had sick handling!

I can't believe I have to say this, but the SNES F-Zero is a great game.

F-Zero GX is my favorite racing game.

The snes game is slightly below average and everything else (besides those listed above) is garbage.
