A thread for racing and driving games.

Gran Turismo & Forza have their own threads. Mario Kart goes in the Mario or Nintendo threads.

So, the best racing game ever is Burnout Paradise.
Since we have a racing game thread, all of it should be Burnout Paradise.
Need for speed is only worth a shit because EA said: HEY CRITERION, WE NEED A GOOD RACING GAME AGAIN since NFS has been shit for about a decade.. What can you do?
And Criterion Said: we got your NFS game right here!!! And they made a poor mans burnout... Which STILL turned out to be the best NFS had been since High Stakes.
Come to think of it. Need for speed has introduced very little in terms of NEED to play racing games...
1994: The Need for Speed.
1999: Need for Speed: High stakes.
2003: Need for Speed: underground.
2010: Need for speed: Hot Pursuit. (aforementioned poor mans burnout)
Those are the only 4 important Need for speed games... And one of them was a poor mans burnout.

High Stakes was the best racing game of its generation. And YES, that includes ALL of PS1, 64 and Saturn, there was not a single better racing game on ANY of those systems (beetle adventure racing on 64 comes bloody close)
If the studios weren't too busy remaking the 50 best selling games from the past 12 months, I would say they should remake High Stakes.
But who needs a good game? EA is probably too busy re-releasing NFS heat which came out on November 8, 2019.

so at FOUR MONTHS OLD, it should have been re-released at least 5 times by now, yes??? (in before heat remake within 1 year)
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!
