Where Have the Good Arcade Racers and Flying Games Gone? (Burnout, Wipeout, F-Zero, Descent, Wing Commander, Star Fox, etc.?)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Of the ones I mentioned in the title Wipeout is basically the only game still going on with Wipeout HD Fury. Burnout Paradise was nothing like the old burnout games. And besides it has lost a lot of support. And games where you could fly around as Star Fox, an X-Wing, or dodging Kilrathi seem long gone as well. Granted, the creator of Wing Commander has a new MMO in the works (which I backed).

And it looks like Nintendo will never get around to F-Zero or a StarFox game like the one of old on 64. Sony dismantled the team that worked on Wipeout so the future looks bleak for Wipeout on the upcoming P4. Descent had a knockoff on STEAM that was alright, but nothing overly exciting.

Does anyone else miss games like these?

Here! Here! couldn't agree more. We do have the new Wing Commander on the horizon which I have too backed as you did.

I am hopeful they do it justice so it isn't like EVE Online. That game was entirely too slow for me.

Looks promising. When is it slated to come out on PC an Mac? I see December for release date on Giant Bomb, but does that really include PC as well?
