I’m not sure why, but I’d like to know which are your favorite games with cars having a major role in their gameplay. The game doesn’t have to actually be a racing game, games like GTA are okay, since a lot of the movement in the game world is travelled by a car. I’d also like to know why these games are great, not just a list of random games with lots of cars in them.
Please don’t answer Automation. That would simply be too easy.
I’ll probably start then. (I had to pick 1 out of 10 or so because I would exhaust anyone reading the first post.)
This is a game from my childhood. And it’s still fun to play. The main attraction here are the police chases. They are great. If you screwed up bad, you had to fight against helicopters, big-ass SUVs, Corvette C6 interceptors, roadblocks and more. One pursuit could last more than an hour! They were blood-pumping, exhilarating experiences where you had your car and your money on the line. If you were caught enough times with the same car, you would have to kiss it goodbye.
The customization was a major downer after NFSU2. MW has less options for everything, but still you could make the cars look your own (or ugly). The perfomance upgrades were fun, as my Fiat Punto wiped the floor with Murgielacos and Ford GTs.
The driving itself was very arcade-y, but it fitted the game quite well (at least I think so).
Oh and the BMW M3 GTR. Legendary. Beautiful. Nothing man can build will be on par for THAT livery on THAT car.
I want that IRL. I really, really do.
