Official Racing Game Thread
06/10/10 at 17:59:52
 
Since we are trying to break up the game related topics these days I figured I'd just go ahead a make a thread strictly for racing games. Post anything and everything about any racing game from ModNation Racers to Gran Turismo.

Just wanted to see if anyone round these parts besides me and SynthR still had Flatout? We were talking about getting some games going one night maybe.

Also started playing Split/Second. I'm really liking this game.

I don't know if I like it or Blur more. They are both really fun games in their own right. Split/Seconds career mode is better than Blurs to me simply because it isn't bitchy and the things they ask you to accomplish, while difficult sometimes, are completely plausible. Though if you are trying to get first place in every event like me you'd better have some patience. But with a little practice every event is perfectly winnable and when you finally do beat it you get a great sense of accomplishment.

Some people complain that the AI is always on your ass and no matter what you do to them you can never get a good lead in a race. This is very true but it does keep the races intense in my opinion. It will piss you off every now and then though.

I haven't tried the MP yet but I'm pretty sure Blur is better in that department. Maybe I'll change my mind after some play time but you can't really beat Blurs 20 player races with weapons.

Speaking of Split/Second which has destruction, the new Motorstorm is going to be shown at E3 next week and is supposed to have a more urban setting with a focus on destruction as well. On top of that they are adding a team racing mode. I love team racing modes so I'll be keeping my eye on this one.

I been wanting to get Flatout for a while now, I just always forget to look for it when I go to GS

since you seem to be versed in all the racing games this gen, i'll ask you.. is there any reason to get the first game to a franchise? like the first DIRT, or the first Motorstorm? or should I just head strait to the sequels?

They are just racing games. They don't have intricate stories or anything and are usually improved upon in sequels like most other games. Buy whatever is new. DiRT 2 is much better than 1. Motorstorm 2 was much better thatn 1. I've played almost all racing games this generation so I can tell you which ones are best.

I didn't mean sequel in the sense of a story, just as the next game in line. its more about if there was something in the first game that got dropped in the second, even if the second has improved on everything else. like maybe there are a few cars the first Dirt had that the second didn't.. that kinda thing

I'm going to attempt to enjoy GT ONE more time with 5, but if it does nothing to hold my interest then I'm completely chalking that game up to being nothing more than another over hyped piece of shit PS and racing franchise.

Too late for that.

Its been delayed so long. Its going under the same listing as Duke Nukem Forever. The Sites and gaming magazines are completely disgusted with the hype and constant delays. The hype for this game is so friggin big, this game should be able to get a job and pay my bills on top of everything else.

I am sure at E3 we will see yet another demo of the game and be wowed and impressed with the lifelike cars on the big screen. But in the end of the demo, I cant wait for "Coming 2014" to pop up on the TV. It would not suprise me. I lost interest in this game after the last 2 delays. I just cant believe that it will live up to the hype. Its just too demanding.

Oved all the GT's. Had Flatout and liked that alot. Burnout was cool too.

NFS 2 HP-3 and MW were my faves out of the entire franchize. Esspecially MW. Still have it.

I don't plan on getting anything else for a bit. I got RDR, and LHP to be messing with soon.

When I find DiRT 2 for cheap I will pick it up. I will play any racer. I want to grab Forza 3 when it comes down in price too.

"Had" Flatout Magnum? Does that mean you no longer own it. Shame on you. Shame.

And I played some of Forza 3 a couple months ago. Its better than 2 but still not all that great in my opinion. It focuses more on being authentic and sim-y and it loses the fun factor in my opinion. Same reason why I don't like GT. To me, Need For Speed: Shift that came out last year completely trumps Forza 3 being that it was more on the sim side like Forza but still had that fun factor. Probably one of the better racers out there really but most people overlooked it because they just assumed it either sucked or was like every other Need For Speed game. I want to pick it up when it goes down in price.

I forgot you suggested NFS. I'll grab that too and we can play together. It's true though, I didn't bother looking at it because the NFS franchise has gone down hill.

I was wanting to pick up Shift after I finished Undercover and Pro Street. I heard the latter sucked, but I still wanna give it a go since I liked the demo I played
