20 greatest racing games

As a genre, the racing game can be seen as a bit of a one-trick pony - where's the fun in driving around a circuit lap after lap after lap? But in reality they're a genre that have, if you'll pardon the pun, consistently driven innovation across the games industry. (Arcade, GameCube, PC, PS2, PS3, Retro, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Gran Turismo at top of the list without reading.

No F-Zero GX anywhere in this crappy list. Fail.

And having GTA and Super Mario Kart in the top 3, is this some kind of a sick joke? Don't get me wrong, I love both games, but GTA isn't a racing game and Super Mario Kart isn't even the best one in the series.

Super Mario Kart *is* the best in the series.

WTF!?!
Some games don't belong there. Although Gran Turismo revolutionized racing, I don't think it deserves number one spot.

My pick is either Mario Kart or Excite Bike.

Mario Kart double dash was the best one or the DS version. Excite bike deserves some consideration but Road Rash is there for the motor bike games. I think that GT3 is the best overall. Wipeout HD instead of the original. RR PSP is the best in the series. Burnout paradise may have the edge over 3 though both are seriously good. Grid 2 good choice. Micro machines or RC pro am tough call in my opinion. GTA3 is a stretch. The rest I can see why they are on there. Driver yes. Crazy Taxi yes. One of my favorite games that never gets mentioned is a rare kart race on the PS1 called street racer. Multiplayer was great and the frame rate was high you could puke it was so smooth. Good times.

I don't know why the put prolouge first. Gt3 or 2 would have been a better choice, since they were both full games.

No Daytona?
No Midnight Club?
No Pitstop II?
No F-Zero?
No Championship Sprint?
No Chase HQ?
No Rollcage?
No F1 97?

And how, how can they forget Dodge Em?

Chase HQ. Awesome.

n64 cruising world better be on there.

Need for Speed - Hot Pursuit
This game was epic, the PS2 version. I put a LOT of time into that game. Unfortunately the new one is coming out around the same time as GT5 which will probably consume my life, consequently the new N4S will have to wait for 6 months...

Lol, I was just about to post this ^.

Finally, someone else who appreciates this game. I had it on the PC w/ the Logitech FF Wingman Racing Wheel. Good memories!!

Very good list.

Chase HQ,rollcage,F1 97 were excellent back in the day.
Bathyj  +   1712d ago
Even xboxers would love F1 97 if they knew Bizarre Creations made it.

And Rollcage is just begging for a reboot.
