The game that introduced us to Mode 7 on its launch for Super Famicom and SNES, F-Zero enjoyed a long and distinguished history across three generations of Nintendo home consoles - plus some excellent Game Boy Advance support. But with F-Zero GX, it was also a series that bowed out at its absolute peak. John Linneman and Audi Sorlie assess the history of the series and the technology that delivered some outstanding futuristic racing.

I'll watch this later. I will say, GX is inferior to X in controls. GX is too twitchy, and the GC stick is very inferior to the precision of the N64 stick. TBH: I love playing the original more than anything. Hated the GBA games though.
