From the carnage of Burnout to the underground street racing culture of Midnight Club, Nexus Hub explores five racing game franchises that are in need of a revival today.
I agree absolutely with Ridge Racer, but would prefer what Namco did with Ridge Racers on the PSP. Basically pull Ridge Racer 1-5 together, make it all about drifting and create new tracks with the same oldskool Arcade Feel. Wipeout however? Redout and Ballistic NG replaced it for me. I miss Rock N Roll Racing in this list
RR 6 & 7 were both good on the 7th gen but it is surprising there wasnt an 8th gen RR8. Ace Combat got a release on 8th gen but not RR of all things (unless you count the stripped down vita version). I'd love to see the return of PGR and Tokyo Extreme Racer.
Yeah..PGR was awesome...RIP Bizarre Creations
Beetle Adventure Racing
I would love to see Rockstar put another Midnight Club out. I remember that game fondly, the customization was top notch at the time. It had a nice arcady feel to the driving, but looking at the cars was the main point.
I need a new Juiced game
Wreckfest is solid and a good alternative to Destruction Derby.
It's a good game, but nothing like Destruction Derby.
Split/Second was great. I'd love to see another Motorstorm and Driveclub. but I'd take another Midnight Club over all of those
A new Ridge, and remaster Split second please!!
I was hoping Take-Two would purchase Codemasters and revive MidnightClub. But of course EA got scared🤦♀️
Burnout and Midnight Club need proper revivals and/or remasters.
I wouldn't mind a NFS: Underground remake. That could be pretty sweet.
Midnight club was way ahead of its time, it would be amazing in modern day.
Disagree with nearly every racer on that list. A new Ridge Racer l agree with. How about a new Wave Race, F-Zero, Project Gotham Racing, Shox, Road Rash, Outrun, Virtua Racing. Maybe the dogs would start barking at the likes of SEGA Rally, Daytona USA, F355 Challenge, Manx TT. Not even a new Mario Kart on Switch, what with the current game being a Wii U port. Pure, Nail’d. So many racers have died off.
