MK64: Mario Raceway, Toad's Turnpike, Kalimari Desert
MKSC: Sky Garden, Ribbon Road, Shy Guy Beach
MKDD: Wario Colosseum, Daisy Cruiser, Baby Park

Re: Favorite Mario Kart courses?

I'll do what you did:

MK64: Kalimari Desert, Royal Raceway, Yoshi Valley
MKDD: Dry Dry Desert, Wario Colosseum, Bowser Castle
MKDS: Desert Hills, Delfino Square, Tick-Tock Clock
MKWii: Grumble Volcano, Dry Dry Ruins, Moonview Highway
MK7: Music Park, Wario Shipyard, Neo Bowser City

...yeah, you can tell I really like desert tracks.

I can't say which ones I like for SMK because I've never played it, and I don't remember a lot of the tracks from MK:SC.

Re: Favorite Mario Kart courses?

(the order of mine is favorite, second favorite, third favorite for each game if no one noticed)

Overall, I think my favorite tracks from all the MK games are the three I said for MKDS. (I really liked the MKDS courses :P)

As for least favorites, hmm... (i'll change the title too)

SMK: I don't really think I have any least favorites for this one.
MK64: Choco Mountain, Sherbet Land, Koopa Troopa Beach
MKSC: I don't remember much of the SC tracks other then my favorites.
MKDD: Dino Dino Jungle, DK Mountain, Sherbet Land
MKDS: DK Pass, Yoshi Falls, Cheep Cheep Beach
MKWii: Grumble Volcano, Daisy Circuit, Moo Moo Meadows
MK7: Rock Rock Mountain, Toad Circuit, Daisy Hills

I might make a ranked list at some point for one or two of the games.

Generally, I don't. I really like Koopa Troopa Beach, Koopa Beach 1 and 2, Cheep Cheep Island, and Shy Guy Beach.

Broken Pier is not a beach course, though, it's a haunted course.

I can give you explanation for this mere coincidence:
Peach Beach: Boring. But it's a Mushroom Cup track so there
Daisy Cruiser: I like the stage design but IMO the boring music just makes the racing atmosphere dull.
Yoshi Falls: Too short and awful course design.
Cheep Cheep Lagoon: This thing didn't even feel like a full course. It felt half finished.
Maka Wuhu: Glitch spammers. Enough said
Wuhu Loop: Just for those really long straights.

I did not enjoy those courses.
Thwomp Desert was annoying plus I can't get a good view of my opponents.
Chain Chomp Roulette was just annoying to me.

MKDD: Pipe Plaza (Fave), Cookie Land (least fave)
MKDS: Twilight House (Fave), Palm Shore (least fave)
MKWii: Funky Stadium (Fave), Delfino Plaza (least fave)

Haven't played the MK7 ones yet, and I don't really remember what the ones from SMK and MKSC were like.

The only courses I've ever legitimately disliked in Mario Kart games have been Koopa Cape and Sky Garden. I have no idea why they've both been brought back when they're so awful. Everything else is awesome and I could never pick favourites.
 

UltraMario

Donkey Kong
MKDD: Baby Park, Dry Dry Desert, Mario Circuit, Daisy Cruiser, Mushroom City, Yoshi Circuit, Wario Colosseum, and Bowser Castle
MKDS: Cheep Cheep Beach, Luigi's Mansion, Tick-Tock Clock, Mario Circuit, Airship Fortress, Waluigi Pinball, and Bowser Castle
MKW: Moo Moo Meadows, Toad's Factory, Mario Circuit (I bet you're probably guessing by now that I almost love all of the Mario Circuits), Coconut Mall, Koopa Cape, Dry Dry Ruins, and Bowser's Castle (Same goes for Bowser's Castles).
MK7: Daisy Hills, Cheep Cheep Lagoon, Shy Guy Bazaar, Wuhu Loop, Mario Circuit, Music Park, Rock Rock Mountain, every course in the Star Cup, and every course in the Special Cup

The Expert Staff Ghost is evil at that track. Apart from that, Cheep Cheep Lagoon is a hot spot for combos that utilize high sea speed.

@People who don't label: Will you please label your track choices? I don't know if they are your favorite or least favorite tracks since the title requests both be made.

I don't like Cheep Cheep Lagoon. Some people said it felt like a tech demo. I agree with them. Usually, the simpler a track, the more evil the staff ghost is. Just look at Ghost Valley 2 from Mario Kart Wii.
