MotorStorm: Best New Racer of the Past Generation

The next-generation of consoles has finally settled in, and with it comes the next-generation of racing games. From Forza 5 to the next-gen version of Need for Speed Rivals, it’s a tough road to see who will succeed in this next-generation. But when you want to talk about the best new racer of the past generation, it’s going to be MotorStorm. (Culture, MotorStorm, PS3)

I remember playing the first motorstorm when I got my ps3 back in christmas all those years ago. The loading time was long but the game was so much fun and the sound track was great.

Motorstorm and Resistance: Fall of Man were two of the best launch games ever IMO.

My only 2 games for PS3 at the launch window and I loved every minute with them. The online in R:FOM was so much fun, I played that game to death.

Motorstorm and resistance were amazing launch games, so much fun.

Motorstorm had such impressive graphics at the time, I played a demo instore and that is what convinced me to upgrade from ps2 to ps3.

Motorstorm is the best off road racing series of ALL-TIME.

Sony were really dickish and arrogant back then. Pissed off fans and devs alike haha(as in, Sony had target renders made, then told their devs to 'do it'. Most devs reaction - 'Are you ****ing serious, what is this 2014?' ").

Very Happy MS whipped them around for a while. They have learned to be straightforward no BS and realistic with everyone. MS needs a good kicking of the scrotum to become like todays sony as well

Motorstorm turned out to be a good game in the end but after the target render wow was there a rage.

It would be kind of nice if they made a PS4 version of Motorstorm later on down the line! I have very fond memory's of the game.

I have ALWAYS loves ALL the MotorStorm games!Except the one for the Vita...didn't care much for that one. I'd LOVE to see it on PS4!!!

Not sure how I would rank this in my own personal list of favorite PS3 titles, but this was surely the first one to make my jaw drop and one of my first purchases when I picked it up on the PS3. I don't think I have ever put in so many hours in to a racing game as I did with Motorstorm and I genuinely got pissed off when I didn't get first place in the game. Reading this article again after so many years makes me wish that this is one of the titles that pops up on the Gaikai service.

I can only agree with that statement.
Racing has never been so much fun.

Like Resistance most people were too busy complaining about the game to enjoy it.Motorstorm Pacific Rift should have sold millions and gone down as one of the best racers ever.And people should have been piling all over Motorstorm Apocolypse.I still to this day not see how any gamer could see driving off road vehicles through a ruined city that is coming apart at the seams with the ground literally falling out from beneath you as anything but awesome.And critics taking off points for story and all sorts of crap.As if the story mattered.I just wanted to jump some falling buildings and cruise through an earthquake.

MotorStorm Apocalypse took a lot of flak for releasing not long after the Tokohu disaster. I agree about the critics and their godawful double standards though. That behaviour has been rampant the entire past generation. Apocalypse was an awesome and extremely fun game.

The entire series was underrated.

Pacific rift was awesome. Riding the bike alongside monstertrucks was brutal.
