975th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: PC Year of Release: 2005 Developer: SimBin Studios Publisher: 10tacle Studios/Atari After fairly recently playing GTR 2, we now get to play the previous SimBin game – same system, different races, and so a lot of realistically timed races in their specific setting. It’s the last game in […]

960th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Xbox 360/PC Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Bugbear Entertainment Publisher: Empire Interactive Racer 38. The only one of Bugbear Entertainment’s on the list, although we’ve seen Empire Interactive publish a couple of games so far in quite different genres. Beyond that, it’s a racing game, that’s about all […]

937th played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Bizarre Creations Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios It feels like Microsoft has had the lead in racing games for the past fifteen years, if not more.

882nd played so far Genre: Racing Platform: Various Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Eden Games Publisher: Atari Test Drive Unlimited is described as an open world racing game, similar to Burnout Paradise, but set in what the book calls the perfect location: Hawaii. We’ll fly over, find an apartment, go out and race. Our Thoughts […]

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. The racing felt fun and the puzzle and track building was a pretty fun twist. It wasn’t the first […]

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 […]
