858th played so far Genre: Racing/Puzzle Platform: Nintendo DS Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Firebrand Games/Atlus Publisher: Focus Home Interactive/Atlus I had an amazingly good time a while ago with Trackmania: United Forever for the PC.

832nd played so far Genre: Racing Platform: PC/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Asobo Studio Publisher: Codemaster One part of the structure of the list is that 2009 games are over represented on the list – over a tenth of the list is that, which makes sense when the book was published in […]

819th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: PC Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Blimey! Games/Simbin Publisher: ISImotor Considering the most recent racer I played is one of the less realistic ones, with Carmageddon II, switching to GTR 2 is going in the opposite direction. Based on the book write up, this is one of those […]

781st played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Playstation 3 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Evolution Studios Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment I feel like I’ve played Motorstorm, the first game in the series, fairly recently (about a year and a half ago), but as I am approaching the end of the list these two entry series […]

731st played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Various Year of Release: 2005 Developer: EA Canada Publisher: Electronic Arts I’ve always distantly admired the Need for Speed series.

687th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Codemasters Publisher: Codemasters I’ve been enjoying racing games in the past – while loads get frustrating and I always feel unlikely to pick them up myself, I enjoy playing them as long as they go okay.

663rd played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Sure, we have plenty of racing games – early on it was an easy genre for multiplayer, and it’s something people still love – but few take place on the water and I swear even less use […]

656th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Playstation 2/Xbox/PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Supersonic Software Publisher: Empire Interactive Mashed is another racing game.
