Default Which is the best racing game ever??

Everyone is not so lucky to have driven a Porsche, a Ferrari, a Lambo or even a souped up Honda... The easiest way to get your hands on these cars is by buying a PC or a Playstation game... So which game do you think is the one which satisfies your Need For Speed??? My vote goes in to the NFS series.... What about you???
So please share what you think is the best racing game ever.....
Also share any new concepts that you would like in a racing game...

NFS 5 - for it's realism in car dynamics.

GT4 - for it's realism in everything.

Ridge Racer - not very realistic, but a good game. Rehaan and F50 would remember playing this game in Mahableshwar. We totally got glued to it.

All PC specific:

4 wheeled : NFS series

2 wheeled : GP500 (very old game, but was one of the best)
MotoGP series (In this series, MotoGP 2 was the best I guess)

Cool

Lots of NFS fans around here, but sorry guys : I disagree. To me, NFS is all bling and 'extremely' unrealistic. Best racing game till date : TOCA Race Driver 3 - it'll blow the NFS right outta your mind. I really recommend having a go at that game, even the demo if possible.

Hey TOCA is a great game but it has quantity over quality, i think it has around 35 disciplines of racing!! But common NFS has always been the benchmark among the racing games, every racing game is always compared to NFS, just like every new supercar is compared to a Porsche 911!
BTW TopGear India has come out with the 10 best racing games list.... It goes like this,
Burnout Legends, Colin Mcrae Rally 2005, F1 2005, Gran Turismo 4, GTR FIA GT Racing, GT Legends, MotoGP 3: Ultimate Racing Technology, Need For Speed Most Wanted, Toca Racer 3 And WRC 4

I'd love that. NFS 5 was more simulation and less gaming. Imagine gaining a sec per lap just, by adjusting the tyre pressure and toe angles. Now that's what i call detailing.

Has anyone here played Forza Motorsport in XBOX?

Its like the XBOX equivalent of the GT series, was rated higher than GT3 in gamespot too, it is superb.


Yes, even I was a fan of NFS5, as shan said, it is a very deatiled game and is heaven for anyone into cars.

Yeah Ive got Juiced but the gameplay is quite boring, Its def. a lot tougher than NFS but still, its lack lusture and the handling of the cars in the game is pathetic, even the graphics are not that great!!
