PS4Home: "So, what racing games should you be checking out on the Playstation 4? Here’s a list of the top racing games currently available."
probably drive club atm,
While describing DriveClub " It plays similar to that of the XBOX racing franchise Forza – it’s familiar in many ways." No, it's not. DC is graphically superior and has superior weather effects, but the whole physics engine is in a different ballpark, the two aren't similar.
nobody who has spent any amount of time playing both of them would say that. At least, not anyone worth taking seriously.
Yea a much much worse ballpark, you've clearly not played forza. DC does look amazing though, so at least your right there.
Rocket League isn't even a racing game!
This is why I also bought an Xbox one with my ps4. I am a racer without a game on ps4 for simulation racers that is.
Project cars is best sim racer at the moment and it's multi platform.
@bruve755 Nice attempt but ...there are around 5 or more 'proper' racers (google them if you must) on PS4, so not just the 2 as you would like the naive to believe ... / However, folly aside. The best PS4 Arcade track racer (so far) Driveclub ...and the best PS4 Sim track racer (so far) Project Cars ...."IMO" obviously /
Driveclub is FOR ME, the best racing game of all times, never a racing game has been so immersive like Driveclub, the realistic visuals, the original tracks, the sound, the amazing sense of speed and the completely insane attention to detail is really amazing. I liked it so much that it's the first and only game I have a Platinum, even made a movie celebrating it and showcasing the different types of weather using the same car, same track and same position with different weather types. The mosquitoes surrounding the fish head statue on the hot weather, something that you literally can't see while driving blew me away, that is some craaaazy love for your product, you can see it here if you like cool stuff :P https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Couldn't agree more, my favorite racer so far this gen, never had so much fun in a racer before. I like the vid as well, shows just how spectacular the game is. Mind blowing thing is, that this is a early PS4 game, can you imagine what games will look like in five years from now.
Best racer of all time? Seriously? Only racer you played or what? This game wouldn't even be in de top 20.
It's his opinion. You have yours and no one is attacking you for having that opinion.
Whose top 20? Yours? Someone else's? What do those top 20 lists have to do with his preferences?
I'm 34, I played many racing games, probably more than you did. What's your problem with Driveclub being my favorite racing game? I played and enjoyed many others, my favorites being Grand Turismo 4, Colin McRae Dirt and Star Wars Racer, Toca Touring Car, very different games and very fun on their own way. To me what makes "my best games list" are the ones which I find to be the most fun and entertaining, not the most praised by critics or more hyped or more realistic.
I dont own Project Cars and dont really care about sim racers. My last Grand Turismo game was GT3. Right now Driveclub is doing it for me, MK24Ever said everything perfectly, so theres no need for me to repeat him. One day I will pick up Need For Speed Rivals as ive played practically every NFS game since Pink Slips, only missing Carbon and ProStreet, Im sure this thread will be bombarded with comments about other racers not on PlayStation even though just yesterday PlayStationers were being told to stay out of their thread. Not trying to add fuel but we already know its gonna happen. Its not like it wasnt tried already. Oh well HAVE AT THEE!
Both consoles need more racing games.
DC and NFS Rivals are my two favorites at the moment. To me DC is unreal and so much fun. Cant wait to see what else they have planned for it and hoping we hear something about GT7 soon - that game will be GODLIKE I am sure.
All bad games, but to consider Trials Fusion a racing game, hahahahahaha.
Trials fusion is a racing game, it's a time trial racing game, you're racing against the clock. Time trials, hence the name "Trials". It's a time trial with freestyle elements. Driveclub, P Cars, and NFS are bad games?
All those games are bad: - trials frame rate sucked when I tested the game at released, and the game cant even be compared to the game that came out before, the one before is much but much better, I consider this as a skill game; - Project Cars as frame rate problems, small amount of cars, no garage? Wtf you cant chose your cars? Kart racing is descusting, cars have too much grip, the prototips desasemble on crash its ridiculous; - NFS is that a joke, you are joking to call this game a good racing game; - as for Driveclub, small amount of cars, no japanese cars (when I played, may have been releaed after), weather does not affect the gameplay in a significant way, bad AI, a track game with invisible walls, really, you get time penaltys that lock your acellerator down from cutting corners, WTF, you hit CPU and get time penaltys but they hit you its ok, by the time I played the game it was too easy and I complained to people online, they said I was crazy then months later a patch to increase dificulty cames along, lol, not to mention all those online problems, and the PSN Plus lie, the games delays, etc... There you have it my fellings for those games, and all valid, well I reckon NFS is a matter of taste but to me it's driving is garbage.
- "small amount of cars" - It has 100 + cars that feel very different and are super detailed! - "no japanese cars" - 2015 370Z NISMO [RPM Car Pack DLC] 2015 GT-R (R35) [RPM Car Pack DLC] 2015 GT-R NISMO (R35) [Horsepower Car Pack DLC] So the best ones are there and super fun to drive :P - "weather does not affect the game-play in a significant way" - Yes it does, very much visually to the point that driving with heavy snow is almost impossible and the car behaves very realistically with the road wet, no, it has no "3D puddles", the roads have no holes Lol - "bad AI" - https://www.youtube.com/wat... this video proves the very opposite, agressive yes, bad, no! - "a track game with invisible walls", it's a track game, not open world, I miss your point... - "time penaltys that lock your accelerator down from cutting corners" - You said it all, so... don't cut corners? - "you hit CPU and get time penaltys but they hit you its ok" - How you know the game doesn't slow own the CPU car that hitted you? - "it was too easy and I complained to people online" - I never heard the game was easy, Venom Hot Lap is the Bloodborne of racing games and it's there from day one, and getting all stars is very far from easy. - "PSN Plus lie" What lies, it was never said the full game would be given for free, who would do that? And the delays have nothing to do with the current game quality. I think you should play it again, I feel really bad for those people who pass on this game by taking all the negativity this game got and still has as a fact, it's a really good game, it's not a SIM neither an arcade, it's the perfect balance between the fun of an arcade and the thrill of driving well and clean like in a SIM.
Well said man! edit: Just watch that video you posted and wow! it's amazing. You should do more man.
