My favorite game is MS FSX. Never get tired of trying out different aircrafts and airports. I also have got a decent yoke to play it.

My all time favorite is Test Drive Unlimited!

You just cant stop playing it! Endless roads to explore in almost all of the exotic cars available around the world(+more added with the car pack)

Limited number of bikes though!( but I love the Ninja and F4 Tamburini! )

Graphics are simply amazing!!! Never seen such graphic perfection(along with fully rendered vehicle interiors) in a racing/touring game.

Online is amazing too. Cruise with your online friends and race in clubs etc.
Basically, it never gets boring.

You guys should definitely try it out.

@Mods - Can I post screenshots of the game here?

My top 10 games:

1) Dead space: extremely scary, recommended to turn off lights & speaker at good volume. excellent graphics. (not for the weak hearted)

2) burnout paradise: a fun game but not that exciting. good graphics.

3) soldiers of fortune - paradise: mindblowing graphics & excellent gameplay.

4) call of juarez - bound in blood: intiallyi found it a bit boring, but then somehow i liked this game

5) GTA san andreas: average graphics (by recent standards) but very interesting game.

6) test drive unlimited: excellent detailing of cars with cabin views but somewhat unexciting handling.

7) crysis warhead: the best action packed game yet. graphics of this game CANNOT be matched by any other game. needs a high end configuration to run this one.

8) wheelman: nice game, overall a timepass!

9) driver - parallel lines: excellent storyline with good gameplay. graphics are good & overall very nice game.

10) Lost: good graphics with great storyline.

Good Games that dint make it to the top 10 list!:

1) NFS Most wanted: The best racing game ever made, wish graphics were better.

2) Entire Hard truck series!: i love driving trucks!

3) 18 wheels of steel: again a trucking game, great gameplay but kind of gets boring after some time.

4) CSI series: nothing extra ordinary, just timepass.

5) Microsoft Train simulator: you actually feel like you are driving a train. very realistic with actual dynamics & sounds, needs better graphics though.

6) King of the road: the most realistic game i have ever played. an old game though, hence graphics are average.

Waiting to play:


1) GTA 4

2) Race Driver Grid

I am a fan of the NFS games. Successfully completed the following:
Need for Speed II
Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2
Need for Speed: Underground
Need for Speed: Underground 2
Need for Speed: Most Wanted
Need for Speed: Carbon

Didn't try Undercover as I got bored of the repetitive style of street racing.

Currently playing "Need for Speed: Shift" on minimal graphics settings. Floored by it.

I am also a fan of GT5 but due to lack of sufficient funds, I have not picked up a PS3 to play that.

Apart from racing games, also playing Assassin's Creed, IGI & Fifa09. I find Assassin's Creed really interesting but get bored having to travel on horseback from one place to another. Also the sequences in the lab are really a drag. Any way to skip them?

If you liked NFS MW, then you will like NFS Carbon more.

Games have changed over the years from "Pong" to "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune".
In the old days i used to play on an Atari fake called RodioFin followed by the ZX specturm 48K, then the PC.
On the PC in the early 90's i loved Test drive and Wing Commander.
After the PC i got into the gaming console of nintendo with Mortal Kombat.
My first console was the Sony Play Station.
Currently using the PS2 and PSP.

Fav Game on PS2: Tekken 5
The Classic of Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, NFS will always be there

Default Race On anyone?

Anybody tried Race On?

Its a very good racing game. graphics are good, sound is good. races are challenging. needs a bit getting use to high levels of racing around the track.

worth the play

next in line - Need for speed shift. any reviews for the same from members here? worth the buy?
