I ended up whizzing through YouTube last night looking at games I used to play as a kid, just wanted to put some up here and see who else used to play these bad boys.
In no particular order, here’s 6 of the racing games from my youth.
Hard Drivin’ – One of my all-time faves. It was the world first driving simulator to use 3-D polygon graphics.
Outrun – Absolute classic. Used to play this on a Saturday at the sports centre. Check the music out.
ATARI ST / AMIGA / PC
Stunt Car Raver – One of my all time faves this. Loved it! Brilliant physics for the bounce control.
Lombard RAC Rally – I got really good at this when I was more into Rally.
Test Drive – I think this franchise is still going strong, similar to The Need for Speed.
MicroPose Geoff Crammond’s F1 GP – This one got me through some late nights at uni. It had a multi-player mode where the pc took over so a bunch of you could play. This one marketed itself more as a “simulator”. Loved it. (Gameplay starts at 3m05)
