PostGRecommends: Top 10 Racing games (Results revealed, p6)

Missed the previous GRecommends? You can find a list of previous votes and results in this carefully prepared document

At the suggestion of Ironhide, GRecommends will now be coming to you every two weeks although you will still have a month to get your votes in.

This time we're looking to come up with a list of the top 10 racing games of all time.

As always, the definition is up to you, but here's what Wikipedia has to say:

The racing video game genre is the genre of video games, either in the first-person or third-person perspective, in which the player partakes in a racing competition with any type of land, air, or sea vehicles. They may be based on anything from real-world racing leagues to entirely fantastical settings. In general, they can be distributed along a spectrum anywhere between hardcore simulations, and simpler arcade racing games.


So should be pretty straightforward for this category. I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Will it be a simulation or arcade racer that takes the GRcade number one spot?

Just list your top 10 below (each counts for one vote, so ranking them isn't important). No compilations please, single releases only.

Voting is open for a month and closes on 16 October.

There is also still time to vote for your favourite first-person shooters too.

Super Mario Kart (Original and best)
Micro Machines 2 (The MD cart allowing you to plug in 2 more controllers for 4 players was amazing)
F-Zero X (Although GX looks amazing I prefer this. Think it handles better. Also has Death Race)
Wave Race Blue Storm (So pretty. Handled amazing)
1080 Avalanche (I loved the music on this. Again handled amazing)
PGR 2 (The first racer I enjoyed with proper cars)
Burnout 3: Takedown (Great online)
Outrun (first Xbox one)
PGR 4
Forza Horizon 2

(No order)

Project Gotham Racing 2 (Xbox)
My first LIVE experience. Played with Big Frank, Cora, Johnny Ryall and Parkreiner. :wub:

Burnout 3: Takedown (Xbox)
I settled on eliminating its predecessor simply because Takedown improved upon it in almost every conceivable way. Takedown was absolutely immense.

F-Zero X (N64)
I racked up more hours on this game than any other N64 game, largely due to the TT and X Cup. The X Cup (random track generator) is probably the best invention in the racing genre, I'm amazed it hasn't been replicated more. Gotta love those first hairpin corners that send 20+ vehicles off the edge into oblivion. :lol:

F-Zero GX (GC)
Everything F-Zero should be. Slick, utopian, tough as nails and strawberry floating fast. I was utterly obsessed with this for months after it came out.

Diddy Kong Racing (N64)
Makes my list for it's single-player adventure. Is there anyone that doesn't love it?

Super Mario Kart (SNES)
Best game on the SNES for my money.

Mario Kart 64 (N64)
The ultimate local multiplayer racing experience.

SSX (PS2)
Me and my mate played this endlessly trying to get all the trick snapshots.

Trackmania United Forever (PC)
Played this online with another forum (now deceased) that I was part of. So many good memories.

Blur (PC)
I really enjoyed this. Nice variety, kind of a mish-mash of Ridge Racer and Wipeout. Kept me playing to the end.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Sadly another genre which I can no longer play much of in recent years.

Anyway here's my list.

  • Wipeout Pure (PSP)
  • Diddy Kong Racing (N64)
  • Rock & Roll Racing (Megadrive/SNES)
  • Outrun 2006 Coast 2 Coast (Xbox/PSP) - Xbox version was obviously better but playing it on PSP on a beach in France was a magical experience
  • Ridge Racer Type 4 (PS1)
  • PGR3 (360)
  • Gran Turismo 3 (PS2)
  • Metropolis Street Racer (Dreamcast)
  • Burnout 2 (Gamecube)
  • Carmageddon (PC)

Should I class OutRun 2 and Coast 2 Coast as the same game? Coast 2 Coast does have the extra stuff, but otherwise they are the same.
