Forza Horizon 2 easily best racer ever made
better than first Gran Turismo - metacritic 96?
Miles miles miles better
Articles like this bring out the worst. A better article would be a breakdown of all racing games and what makes them great. I still don't know what I want because all I hear is fanboy noise like this article. My favorite racer is Burnout Paradise. Which game will give me a similar experience? That is what articles should be about. Inform readers. Trying to discern what is a good racer based on comments is futile.
@Aussie Lol, It's good, but it aint the best racer ever, not even close.
Best racing game I've ever played too! Keep going back to it, 200 hours played and still tons to do!
Forza Horizon 2 easily the best racer ever made in my opinion - fixed
For you everything on Xbox is the best ever made, so who cares?!
nope gran turismo piss forza easily as for this gen...project cars is the best racing game graphic wise driveclub piss both project and flopza
2 different graphic styles, fh2 is open world with dynamic weather and 200+ cars with jaw dropping visuals not to mention custom cars etc.... it achieves more visually than driveclub 55 car closed circuit racer
Open world racing doesn't do anything for me so even if I had an XB1 I wouldn't want FH2, I'd stick with regular Forza. As I said below, what a person thinks is the "best" racing game depends heavily on what kind of racer they like. Sim, arcade, or hybrid. Open world or traditional tracks. Declaring one as easily the best doesn't mean much, except that it's your personal opinion. I bought Driveclub with my PS4 last October and still don't feel the need to buy another new racer, but my favorite racing game of all time was one of the PS2 Burnouts. I think it was Burnout 3: Takedown.
Dude, are you high? Mario Kart 8 is where it's at!
project cars hands down best racing sim.
Driveclub, nothing else compares
Seriously dude? You sir clearly have no idea what you're talking about.
play driveclub as it is today not like it was when it first came out
Lol really? Driveclub is badass. How is what he said seen as ignorant to you?
There is nothing called a best racer out of these racing games as each of these racing games have good points and bad points to make them all the best racers ever as I have all of them.
"Best" would also depend on if the person making the choice prefers a sim or arcade racer, or a hybrid or the two. There is no answer that's right for everyone. For myself, I bought Driveclub and don't feel the need to buy another racing game at the moment. That may change when the next Gran Turismo comes out, and it may not.
It's really hard to pick the best racing game cause most of have different preference. but for me, personally I would prefer Need for Speed games. And also GT and Forza. but if I had to pick one, I will definitely choose NFS.
Mario kart 8, driveclub and forza h2 are my favourite racers this gen all for very different reasons.
Project CARS - nearly each and every car drives/behaves differently, constant practice and patience needed and a good sense of tuning to your liking. DriveClub - the sense of speed this game gives is impressive and scary. Great look too. GranTurismo 6 - still holding out very well with it's very good physics.. but not so much it's incremental damage system. Only played Forza4/Horizon on XBox360 so can't really give out valid comments for XBox ONE's Forza5/Horizon 2, but do like the rewind system and very good number of tracks.
Only good things to say, and yet so many disagrees. That doesn't make any sense. Personally, I don't MIND a damage system of any sort, but I don't mind NOT having one, either. So long as the rest of the game is solid.
I'm a PS4 owner only. If I had to choose one game I'd want from the Xbox One it would be Forza Horizon 2. I like being able to customize the cars, and in my opinion the driving and AI in Forza games is the most fun around. And the career mode is great, especially in Horizon 2. Driveclub and Project Cars don't do anything for me. Nice graphics but really boring gameplay. And Gran Turismo hasn't evolved since the PS2 days. Also can't wait for the next Dirt game.
Forza Horizon 2 is the game I can't put down at the moment. Still waiting on the promised freebie PS+ edition of DriveClub, so can't yet form an opinion on that.
Prefer driveclub to forza horizon. I have both, it just depends what you prefer from a game. I don't care about customisation, and i feel that fh2 seems like most tracks are the same. I was expecting more, as opposed to driving across fields and crashing into trees, before moving onto 'tracks' that are quite repetetive. Haven't played project cars.
Played Driveclub for the first time the other day, really disappointed by it. I dunno how you think the tracks are repetitive in horizon 2, there's tons of them, and they are really varied!
Maybe i need to play it more. I get put into races automatically when i chose multiplayer, then get thrown into this rubbish mode where i have to infect other cars. To be honest i absolutely suck at racing games. Could others with slower connections be at an advantage.
For a horizon 2 for me. Most hours put in a racer easily.
How about everyone has their own opinions and enjoys what they play. I haven't played horizon. So I cannot really judge. I've really enjoyed GT5, and Driveclub. Project cars is a good sim, but has no atmosphere for me. Found it boring.
Sega Rally Championship followed closely by Daytona USA. For games in recent years I am unsure. For me it is a toss up between PGR4 and DriveClub and Grand Turismo 5.
So many. PGR 2&3 were my all time favorites. This gen FH2 & Driveclub. Forza 5 & PC's are good but not for me, I get bored with sim type games & I'd rather race a car against somebody where my skill determines the victory & not that he's spent hours tweaking everything so his cars better...
for me personally its a tossup between pcars and forza ms followed by forza horizon 2. i prefer more sim based stuff and pcars has not let me down in that regard, especially with a wheel and loads of configuration options which it handles.
Forza Horizon 2 best arcade racer ever, play free roam with friends, extreme fun factor
gran turismo 6
For me it is still Forza 5. I like my racers simmy.. And without bugs.
I prefer street racers to track racers so I've had more fun with the Crew and NFS Rivals than with Driveclub. I would probably like FH2 if I had an XB1.
Long as they can be played, that all that matters. However i prefer closed track racing games>open world racing games, granted that i like them. So in my opinion, it's driveclub, forza sim series and project CARS, even though i would not touch project CARS with a 10 foot pole until it's fixed, and open world, racers? the crew! why not forza horizon 2? it's not bad, but after seeing the bug where the cars just freeze and forms pyramids, roads disappearing and falling through the world, it is why i chose the crew>forza horizon 2. https://youtu.be/T2eByv8odw... https://youtu.be/yLhUDkwqro...
Forza Horizon 2 is one helluva racer. I have played Dirt, NFS almost all of em, GT, and a whole bunch of F1's but forza is something else.
Outrun 1986 J/K 😋 At the time it was pretty fun though.
The current iteration of Driveclub is hands down the best racer currently, IMO. The gorgeous and well formed tracks, beautiful graphics and insane detail on the cars, the varied environments. I personally think open world racing has run it's course and love the club aspect of DC. DC is the perfect mix of Sim and arcade racer and with the addictive points system it reminds me of PGR. The weather fx are so intuitive with how they alter gameplay and no other racer has the same thrilling sense of speed DC has. Today's Driveclub is a beast of a racer.
The current version of Driveclub is the best on the market. Sense of speed, graphics, environments, tracks, 1st person view are all best in show.
1. Driveclub 2. P cars 3. Forza h2 - imo of course.
