A compilation of some of the greatest racing games that ever graced our beloved screens.
Personally, I would have fitted Rallisport Challenge 2, Micro Machines 2, PURE and SSX3 somewhere on that list... Good to see GRID though.
I've never played RC2, I have a honoury mention to Micro Machines at the bottom, amazing game, shame its fallen out of common knowledge. Pure was wank in mo many ways imo, I much preffered Motorstorm, but each to their own I guess. SSX never even occured to me, but I was a big Cool Borders 3 (ps1) and 1080 (n64) fan.
GTII, super mario kart64 , extreme G, ROAD RASH 3D, Top Gear Rally, motorstormPR, Brunout paradise, Need for speed hot persuit (as well as hot persuit2 on PS2), 1080*, Crusin' USA.
micro machines v3 for ps1 best ever racer. getting 2 multi-taps and having 8 racers. many a wasted hour on that.
Gran Turismo II... wow, great times. I still love the car collection it has, with its average models, as seen on the streets, instead of exotic/over-the-top cars every game presents. GT I also had a nice collection, but smaller though.
Coudln't agree more, GT3 was fantastic too, then GT4 really had some great handing mechanics, but GT2 was by far the most engrosing, when I bought GT5, I was confused beyond all beleif, I didn't have the degree required to work out its menu system, put up with its loading times or the understanding to find the "fun" in the game. So I switched to Forza and never looked back lol.
I'll take it your not a fan of F1 then? GT2 was one of the best racing games ever though.
Nice list. No jet Moto :( no Cruisin USA :( i loved those back in the day.
Ah I don't know Jet Moto im affraid, I was so close to putting Daytona USA (sega saturn) on the list, I'm also regretting leaving off Destruction Darby (saturn) and also Sega Rally, that game was epic!
GT and burnout where 1 of the best
race driver grid a really good game
Diddy Kong Racing would have been a great addition too.
Would be nice to see road rash make the list. Loved that game! And micro machines; I remember playing two player during computing at school... good times.
can tbelieve I forgot San fRansisco Rush 2049 too. Daytona USA was amazing as well.
Would have like to see R.C Pro-am. Hard Driving taught me how to drive a stick.
Metropolis Street Racer for the dreamcast anyone??
Man that game was epic! Dreamcast had some stunning racers, and one of the best car games ever, CRAZZZZZY TAXI.
heres my opinion on gt5! gt5 had only one thing over forza and that was the wide variety of cars to choose from!
Ridge Racer 4 was the last great RIDGE RACER!! game. It was fun & has a excellent soundtrack. GT2 i agree with, even though GT3 is the most successful game in the series. GT2 introduced the Escudo!!! & has the Vector M12!! Great car. The original Mario Kart is & forever be the definition of fun. CTR, what can i say about it...simply a delight to play.
