645th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Left Field Productions Publisher: Nintendo The original Excitebike game isn’t on the list. I’ve been exposed to it many times, most recently thanks to the excellent NES Remix, and it’s part of the classics that you associate with the NES – […]

627th played so far Genre:Racing Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Evolution Studios Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment I genuinely struggle sometimes to distinguish different types of off road(ish) racers.

617th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Psygnosis Publisher: Psygnosis We have played several Wipeout games – including the first – and the main thing I remember is that the first in the series didn’t agree with me… and that later ones were okay, but still difficult. The […]

557th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: PlayStation Portable Year of Release: 2007 Developer: SCE Studio Liverpool Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment I must admit, I’m quite surprised we’re at the third of the four Wipeout games already, after we played the first Wipeout and Wipeout HD. They’re fun games, but so, so difficult to keep […]

550th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: DS Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo About a decade ago, on my first holiday to London, I met up with a large group of people from the Pokemon site I did/do work on.

539th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Playstation 3/Playstation Portable/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Rockstar San Diego/Rockstar London Publisher: Rockstar Games Rockstar made a racing game! You know, the group probably best known for the Grand Theft Auto series (once it goes third person). Racing games are always a mixed bag for me […]

493th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: PC/Xbox 360/Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Codemasters Publisher: Codemasters I want to like racing games. They can be impossible to start or difficult to progress in, but when they allow you to drive and do it well, they can feel magnificent. Thanks to family influence, rally […]

477th played so far Genre: Driving/Racing Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Turn 10 Studios Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios Forza Motorsport 2 is listed as a more serious racing game, with some additions to help the casual player – the brake line is mentioned in particular. It’s got a big enough reputation, but […]

448th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1992 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo It feels like it’s time for something fun!

437th played so far Genre: Racing/Puzzle Platform: PC Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Nadeo Publisher: Deep Silver/Enlight So today we’ve got a game that has one of the stranger genre combinations so far – racing/puzzle doesn’t feel like a natural combination. As it’s a series of games (the DS version will follow at some point […]
