I, for one, am glad that Mario, Luigi, Toad,[unexplained] babies and friends could get over their conflict with Bowser, the living/dead Koopas and ghosts, resolve their differences to give us excellent go-kart races.

I’m not sure how you forgive the perpetual kidnapping of the Princess or having large quantities of fireballs thrown at you and your troops, only to later team up and hurl bananas and magic turtle shells at high speeds, but they did it.
