I really like the Ridge Racer series. Also Outrun. I generally prefer more arcady driving vidya with exotic locales. I remember playing a lot of Burnout in the 00s too.
man, i remember when NFS underground (1,2) was the hottest shit, even people who didn't play racing games played that

>>2372 I'm not a big Need for Speed guy but I do remember playing Undeground 2. Mainly for the aesthetics that it provided, that was smack in the middle of the whole neon drag racing craze. And it had a notoriously solid OST that everyone listed to https://yewtu.be/watch?v=WUXfnYb2TvI&

I'm just gonna leave this here.
>>2377 Fuck I miss this type of music. We talk about graphics, but the degradation of vidya music is also palpable.

I found this game Pure, it's like a off-road cart racing and it's really fun. https://iv.ggtyler.dev/watch?v=0gUgudO2keI

This series was the definition of simple, high energy fun. I miss it.
>>2562 These were great, you can always pick them up anytime. The exploding mechanics really made them very addictive, especially in multiplayer.

Have been playing Forza Motorsport for the OG Xbox and in my opinion it holds pretty great, Microsoft placed many chips on that game and it turned out as timeless gold. When i get a new pirate Xbox 360 i will play the shit out of 3, then maybe try 4 again. OG did have varied motor sounds, it's there but the audio mixing makes them hard to differentiate, seems it was made for a surround system rather than normal stereo TVs. Also some unique cars, miss the Tommy Kairas and Veilsides more than i would like to admit. Plus the very rare TVR Typhoon.
>>2989 Yeah till looks pretty good. OGBox was the best place for vroom games.
Is modern vroom vidya pozzed? It shouldn't be high on their priority list so maybe modern racing games are still good?
>>3472 There's not many of them but the common thing is that they are either ultra-simulations with no fun allowed or some gimmick arcade quick cash-grab. Pozzed as in trannies driving or cars with tranny livery i wouldn't say, i think the latter does happen but not the tranny peddling because there's not that many new games. Perhaps Forza Horizon being the only exception in the middle of the game direction but they are the same thing since 2 and the last one is getting peppered with recent bad comments due to the online section being filled with rubberband so people using old lower-class cars get an opportunity against hypercars. Forza as a series is at a low point, it's been 6 years since 7 and in that same amount of time back in the day the devs released Forza 1 to 4 which were the pinnacle, and 7 wasn't pretty good due to using that loot box system.
>>3491 At least anons into boring realistic simulators are still happy in the current year.
>>3492 Happiness is fleeting anon, also why be happy in the current year with the state of things.
>>3495 racing isn't pozzed so
>>3496 For how long? Gonna be honest my only experience with racong games are soytendos mario cart, a lot of fun but not at the same speed of more conventional racing games.
>>3501 *racing
>>3501 If it isn't pozzed by this point they clearly have no interest in it.

Hate hairpins Hate double apexes Hate Laguna Seca Simple as.
>>3828 >Laguna Seca Why?
Open file (97.37 KB 1280x720 maxresdefault.jpg)
>>3830 So i suck at Laguna Seca's very first double turn (double apex as they call it) and the corkscrew because in the former i get rammed/PIT'd all the time and the latter i can't see shit because it's a camera dive and i always enter it wrong or downright go into it at 50km while everyone rams me back or win seconds because they go at it perfectly. Forza 1 on hard is tough as nails when you reach the R class, i drive with a pad and no assists other than auto gears and the line sometimes because i forget the tracks after weeks, still the AI rarely makes mistakes if they are not tailing you and are also very aggressive. Then the AI has all the assists, thus they have anti-lock and brake at full efficiency while i have to soft brake 10 meters before so they get the position or ram me. I now understand Turn 10 invented the Replay feature not because of the noobs but because the AI was made to not play around and will fuck you up in late-game if you are close to them even if you don't touch their cars. I often compete in demolition derby by causing accidents if i want to win stock races in tracks i suck and doing these in R GTS class is hell. Guess i need to get better at Laguna and Bathurst but doing perfect times for 10 or 12 laps straight is a grind, want to cut my nuts when i reach Endurance.

>>5435 Is this a nuMake incoming, or the dawn of a whole new era of refreshing for all?
>>5150 >thought modern consoles would be an improvement
>>5437 >Classic Sega arcade racing game Daytona USA 2 will receive its first ever home port, 25 years after it was released in arcades.
>>5440 Remember how /kong/ said that studios catering to the West had reached levels of vibrant enrichment that shouldn't even be possible, and therefore could never create good games now? < *reach into the time travel vault* < *extract 6502-based arcade IP* > "Behold the new current thing!111"
>>5440 It's not even a standalone release like the first one on PS3 and Xbox 360, it's only playable in the new Yakuza Like a Dragon game. Hopefully, it does gets one in the future.
>>5466 >like the first one on PS3 and Xbox 360 Might as well recall the stone age, anon. Back then there were still videogames. Still, it's nice to see an actual re-release of something and not a horrible numake.

Most people focus on the soundtrack and graphics for understandable reasons, but do any other racing games manage the level of simple yet effective story telling and "cinematography" this one does? >Race results and the number of tries it took you to win change the dialog you get between races >Has an actual plot on top of "you becoming the best racer" >Courses are colorful and perfectly lit for dramatic effect, with moving set pieces like helicopters and airplanes >Replays have the perfect camera angles to always look exciting

>>9753 I always thought old racing games were hell on earth in terms of licensing hence the lack of remakes, something like Midnight Club 3 would be a major pain in the ass due to the unholy amounts of licensed shit in it including the very comprehensive soundtrack and varied car list
