Popular Racing Games?? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
iRacing if you want extremely realistic racing. It is very unforgiving and you need to focus on being a safe driver above all else to advance. It can be extremely frustrating one race and extremely rewarding the next. Project CARS (pCARS) is showing a lot of promise as well as it is shaping up to deliver great graphics and realism. For arcade racers NFS:HP and Dirt3 are my favorites. Nothing more fun than running from the PoPo or rally drifting! thumb.gif

Iracing is the best racing game i have ever played. Its truly amazing and you will like it even more if you are a racing fan. It has one of the best if not the best multi monitors support out there.

Its still a work in progress (pre-alpha), but its quite solid and has quite a strong community. They're currently in the process of testing multiplayer sessions so hopefully we should be able to get some online racing done soon applaud.gif (we've been waiting about a year to get to the stage so its a pretty big deal lol).

Holy CRAP! that looks amazing, I wonder what kind of gpu I'd need for that. I'd go out and buy one if the initial gameplay reviews are good (I don't care if it looks pretty it's gotta play better than forza or I'll just use my xbox). I'm very excited, though. It will be great to have some competition to forza and gran turismo.thumb.gif

For the budget probably a newer NFS game.
I've found the iRacing experience to be quite pleasurable, though, but you typically need a wheel to be a degree of proficient.

I've read about iRacing before and hear that if you're not a diehard simulation fan don't get it. Every add on is pricey and it costs more and more to keep playing. Not looking for subscriptions

is not as expensive as some people put it. if you stick to a series you wont need to spend that much money. it is pretty hardcore sim oriented so if you are not really into that it wont work for you. subscription is not to bad. they have really good deals. in thanksgivings they have like a year deal for 50 bucks.

years ago i put many hours into this free to play game

http://projecttorque.com/

when i quit playing they were starting to add licensed cars. pretty fun when you get serious racers, you buy upgrades for your cars also. there is race modes, tag, check point, etc.

iRacing is the best... but only if you want a racing simulation, rather than a racing game.

Yeah iRacing is the way to go if you want the best of the best. But honestly, seeing mention of CARS here, if you want a great game and not having to pay monthly, thats probably the best bet. That game is pretty amazing.
