The world needs a new Road Rash title

Remember the Road Rash franchise, EA’s violent motorcycle racing series?

Well, it’s exactly what the gaming industry needs right now. It’s time for a re-imagining of Electronic Art’s classic franchise. (Culture, Road Rash)

Well, that was sure a blast from the past.

What is it about nostalgia that makes me all warm inside?

I spent HOURS and DAYS on the original series. I loved it and remember my mother deploring the violence. My how times have changed. Bring back Road Rash!

Road Rash II was a blast to play with friends. I'd even love an HD port of one of the 16-bit titles. I'd totally but that.

I really think it's time for a new Road Rash title. That cancelled game footage looks great.

It pretty much embodies exactly what a new Road Rash could be.

indeed, Road Rash, i think, would have a huge chance of being a hit.

it would resonate with old school gamers, and newer games could be drawn in from the idea of brutal motorcycle racing with intense, high speed combat.

the concept video release and year or two ago looked awesome, to bad it got canned, or at least put on the back burner for the time being.

Road Rash 64 was the last one i played, and i loved every second of it.

please Road Rash, knock me off my bike soon.

Considering all "gamers" care about these days are war torn FPS games, I think we should let nostalgia be. I loved road rash back in the 16- bit error, but i feel like "gamers" today won't really understand or grasp the concept , because it isn't a "popular" title or a "fps"

"gamer" as in 14-16 year old kid who plays games they hear are good and ask their parents to get for them.

Then make it for adults that play games, an audience who is still a 'Gamer'.

I also don't think every popular title out there is an FPS.... that's a bit of an over statement.

Damn right! Road Rash on 3DO was awesome!

Loved the original on MegaDrive, and Road Rash Jailbreak on the PS1 was a blast as well.
