The battle mode is the best part of the N64 game

My Rock 'n roll racing late entry was a waste of time. Screw stupid lists.
Yes?

As much of a Sega fan as I am I've never understood the appeal of Daytona, its just so mediocre.

I feel like if you swapped the F-Zero games, then swapped GX with MK8, this would be Drumstick's ideal racing game list. :lol:

As it is, I agree with every word. strawberry floating glorious list, that.

Initial response was "what the hell is this!?" when spotting that a number of the "big names" are not there. But on reflection it's actually a great list!

No problem. One of the things I enjoy about it is learning about games I have never even heard of (Splashdown 2: Rides Gone Wild, for example).

As someone mentioned, the Xbox 360 was a beast for racing games. At the time I never really thought of the N64 as a racing console (compared to its direct rival the PlayStation, for example). But looking more closely, you've got: Diddy Kong Racing, Mario Kart 64, F-Zero X, Snowboard Kids, Mickey's Speedway USA, Wave Race 64, Excitebike 64, Beetle Adventure Racing, Hydro Thunder, Micro Machines 64, Ridge Racer 64, Wipeout 64, Destruction Derby 64, the F1 World Grand Prix series, the Extreme G series, the Top Gear series and the Rush series :datass:

I was a little surprised Gran Turismo didn't poll better. They were critically acclaimed at the time and the nostalgia factor too.


You forgot Cruisn' USA, F1 Pole Position and Multi Racing Championship if you want to cover all the mediocre racers on the N64 ;) .

Cruis'n World is great on the N64, too :) .

Rush 2 is one of my favourite mediocre n64 racers.
Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

I loved F1 World Grand Prix. The scenario mode was ace and there was a cheat that allowed you to drive at 1000mph.

There was also a Ridge Racer game that came out late in the 64's life that I never played and a V Rally game that was nowhere near as good as the PlayStation version.

Actually, a top 10 N64 racer list might be interesting :lol:
