Mario Kart is a racing game series made by Nintendo, featuring characters from many games starring Mario and his friends. The Mario Kart games are known for their madcap action with unique racing courses and the use of items to sabotage opponents.

Games in the series:
Super Mario Kart (Super Nintendo Entertainment System): The first game in the series revolutionized racing with it unique game play, use of items and two-player mode.
Mario Kart 64 (Nintendo 64): The sequel to Super Mario Kart, it featured amazing graphics and all new courses, plus being able to play with up to four players.
Mario Kart Super Circuit (Game Boy Advance): Going back to the semi-3D days of Super Mario Kart, this game combines the best of both the first two Mario Kart games with new tracks and classic gameplay. This game even has all of the Super Mario Kart tracks available for play as unlockables.
Mario Kart Double Dash!! (Nintendo Gamecube): One of the more insane games in the series, this one changed things over entirely with each kart being driven by two characters, which could be swapped during a race. This also featured the ability to pick from multiple vehicles as opposed to being limited to racing in tiny Go-Karts.
Mario Kart DS (Nintendo DS): The latest game in the series is one of the first to include free online play via Nintendo WiFi Connection. There were multiple karts for each driver, and the game also includes tracks from the previous Mario Kart games.

F-Zero is a racing game series made by Nintendo, similar to Mario Kart. Unlike Mario Kart, the games take place in a futuristic setting, have more high-speed roller-coaster action, and don't feature any items for use on the raceway.

Games released in the F-Zero series:
F-Zero (Super Nintendo Entertainment System): The first game in the series. Introduced some pretty impressive semi-3D graphics with gameplay similar to that of Super Mario Kart, but no items.
F-Zero X (Nintendo 64): The second game, this time in full 3D. Featured 30 different racers, 24 courses, and some FAST racing action.
F-Zero Maximum Velocity (Game Boy Advance): The first portable F-Zero game. Featured entirely new drivers and courses in a setting that suggested it took place some time after F-Zero X.
F-Zero GX (Nintendo Gamecube): Similar to F-Zero X, but with better graphics, a story mode, the ability to build your own racing machines and new drivers. Compatable with the arcade game F-Zero AX (see below).
F-Zero AX (Arcade): The Arcade version of F-Zero GX (see above). Players who had Memory Cards containing F-Zero GX data would be able to unlock extras for their F-Zero GX game, such as new pilots and parts.
F-Zero GP Legend (Game Boy Advance): Similar to F-Zero Maximum Velocity, but it was based off of the F-Zero anime of the same name. Players could choose to play as heroes or villains in various missions.
