Great article! Mario Kart 64 in particular annoyed me. In a lot of games the speed difference isn't noticeable unless you played the NTSC version but MK64 is so :cussfit: sluggish even with the comparison.

Nintendo really didn't have much care for PAL gamers at the time. Add to this getting the latest big games 6 months+ after the US and Japan to the crap conversions and life was very frustrating for PAL gamers.
Yeah plus all the exclusive titles we never saw: Spider-Man, Indiana Jones, Army Men 2 & Air Combat etc to name but a few. Nevertheless I have some of the good exclusives now!

The speed differential really annoys me too because it kind of put me off competing in our Mario Kart hotlap thread because I can't simply beat people's times I would need to calculate it into NTSC time and I know a formula has been provided but it just isn't the same. I do try pick up NTSC copies of games where I can now because they are usually cheaper and actually more likely to be better quality..
