2 Player PC Racing Games?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am wondering if their are any PC racing games that allow 2 player modes... I know this would require either two sets of steering wheels or controllers etc.

The second part of the question is if they offer split-screen or multiple monitor.. such as each player would have his own monitor to look at.

Here is what I want to do:

I want to get two racing seats, two steering wheel/pedal setups, two monitors, and have a 2-player arcade style race. Hopefully someone has done this already......

Thanks!

There are several which offer split screen (to my knowledge) Multi-monitor support I'm pretty sure is a no go.

I think Need for speed: Underground 2 offers split screen support.

Burnout Paradise has a Party Mode
Which allows each player to pass the pad
Taking it turn by turn to see who gets the higher score in challenges assigned in the party mode
Other than that im not sure what other racing games do offer 2 player

Wow the more I search on this the more disappointing it is...

Does no one like having their friends come over and race anymore? We used to have a blast racing split-screen Gran Turismo 2 on Playstation....

I thought it would be even better if each had their own screen but were still next to each other so you could tell your partner how terrible of a racer they are LOL, then they push you out of your seat and they win the race hahah.

There are several racing games that support LAN mode which I love. I hang out with friends at LAN parties and play racing games. But in terms of split screen, it's not something often mentioned in terms of PC gaming.

It is looking like I will be forced to use a PS3 and Gran Turismo 5 (when it is released) to do this. It will also be split screen, I am finding nothing that allows you to use multiple monitors.

I also wanted to do the same, I have a single player racing cabinet I built around 6 months ago but you cant beat multi player, I have 2 bucket seats, 2 identical 22" monitors and a powerful ish PC and my research drew a blank.

The only way I can see it working is if you have a Splitscreen game (Left/Right) and then use multi monitor support with your graphics driver, I dont know what the intro screens would look like though!!
