Got this idea from another forum, some people came up with games I had totally forgot about. Which games can be reffered as "the" racing game when you were young?

Here's a few I still have biggrin.gif

I had NFS HP2 and Porsche Unleashed. I also bought a PS1 for Grand Turismo.

Road Rash. That was epic. It wasn't cars, but it was a properly awesome game. Also there was an F1 game on computer. Not sure what it was called. Very cool though.

I played so much fucking Spy Hunter back in the day.

I'm probably showing my age with this one but, Pole Position.

I played a lot of Gran Turismo 2, the first Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, I had a computer game called Mid Town Madness not sure how big that got but it was pretty fun to drive around Chicago and throw mailboxes at cars.

I forgot about Hard Drivin'. It was at the local arcade and I had it for the Sega Genesis. Fun times driving through the loop or at least trying to.

+1 on Spy Hunter. I probably pumped my weight in quarters in those machines.

Aside from those mentioned above, I played the shit out of Test Drive 5. That soundtrack was excellent.

Does Jet Jockey count? tongue.gif



Also just remembered Midtown Madness 2 (so much fun on a LAN) and Moto Racer (I had it on PC). Generic title, fun game.

Knight Rider was such a fucking awful game. I still can't get past the first damn level. That time limit is a bitch.
