Going to try and revive this thread much to my own dismay. First post is going to be the most obvious.

Vigilante 8



Vigilante 8 2nd offence



Rouge Trip Vacation 2012

The Vigilante series were my favourite runner ups. Interstate 76 and 82 were actually the parents of the Vigilante series, so there are those as well, but they haven't aged well at all.



Carmageddon was always great, but it's not the same without actual projectile weapons, you know?

Full Auto had a few games that were so-so.

Gas Guzzlers Extreme is similar to Full Auto.

WWE Crush Hour might have been the best game though. /sarcasm

Yes! Someone else participating besides me. Please do. I had a massive list here before sharp fucked it up. I'm gonna try and find those hard to finds again.

And someone else that knows about interstate thats great.  I plan on buying them on gog at some point, just to see where vigilante 8 came from. The onfoot car swapping thing in 82 or whatever kinda throws a unique if not usless curve in there.

V8 was technically Interstate for consoles if you think about it.

Vigilante 8 was fucking fantastic. At least the first one. It had a much more gritty, realistic touch to it. The physics were great, too. Sure, there were some useless weapons like V8.1 Homing Missiles which were quite weak.

Vigilante 8: Second Offense was awesome too, but it lost much of its realism and went for a different way that makes it much less replayable in my opinion. None of the new levels are 'keepers', so to speak (besides Minnesota's powerplant and the Steel Mill). My favorite car in the first game was definitely John Torque and so he was in the second game. Fantastic character.

I agree w/ DevilBeast that the first Vigilante 8 was better than the 2nd one.

Also don't forget Star Wars: Demolition on PS1. That game also used the V8 engine.

yes and no

Kart Racing is kind of its own genre ...a sub-genre of Racing games, that has elements of Vehicular Combat.

However since Mario Kart does have Battle Mode it does qualify as a vehicular combat game too. It's really not too different from say Cel Damage, a game that draws comparison to Twisted Metal.

There aren't too many pure car combat titles... it's really only like Twisted Metal, Rogue Trip, Vigilante 8, Motor Mayhem, and Interstate '76... I guess WWE Crush Hour too although there was nothing to those maps, they were too demolition derby styled... and then you have the car combat genre spinoffs... Critical Depth (submarine-combat), Dead in the Water (boat combat), Star Wars Demolition (varied combat), Hardware: Rivals (car & tank combat)... then you got the half-racing half-car combat games like Full Auto 1 & 2 and Carmageddon... then you got the kart racers w/ battle mode... then you got games like Mad Max and Grand Theft Auto and Arkham Knight which are action/adventure games with car combat elements... then there's the recent Crossout (PS4) which is a MMO car combat game that requires you to craft out and customize your vehicle with frequency...

But pure car combat games are rare. That's what is kind of amazing about Twisted Metal. It pioneered a sub-genre that never really went anywhere post-2001, so it'll always be the King of the genre (which makes Vigilante 8 the Queen I guess).
