Racing games....

The one thing I have always loved about computers and consoles is racing games. I remember the first time I played 3D Grand Prix and Speed Kings on my Amstrad CPC and thought "Wow... This is the future of gaming". Ok, so I had played some simple racing games before on my ZX81 and various little consoles, but these were the games that made me want more racing games.

Of course, through the years we had Enduro Racer, Super Hang-On, Outrun, Continental Circus, Sega rally, Ridge Racer, Ferrari F355 and a million more, all of which I play today, but it's the new crop of racing games that are really tickling my fancy. I play the new version of Sega Rally to death at the moment, contrary to reviews, this is one amazing racing game that you really have to put time and effort into to be any good. Also, there's Motorstorm of course, which I have played so much that I have reached a point where the difficulty in the levels has become way too hard and frustrating!

The one racing game that I am truly looking forward to though is Ferrari Challenge. It's ealry days yet, but this game is looking to be amazing. If it looks and plays anything as good as the Dreamcast game "Ferrari F355", then I will be pooing my pants!

Hopefully in the near future I'll be adding my top 20 favourite racing games to this blog. Infact, I've been toying with the idea of a "Racing Game" website for ages, so might even do that!

See you all soon.
