First Racing I got hooked on

This was the first racing game I got hooked on, although it was rip-off of Sega's OutRun (which I played a lot at arcades). Still, to have your very own racing game at home was a pure joy me. One shame I have is that I never got to try out the 3-D mode, which required 3-D glasses that I never had (I must have got the game 2nd hand). It was probably a gimmick, but still, I always wondered what i... read more

Description: By 1987, few racing games existed for the NES, and Rad Racer was seen as Nintendo's answer to Sega's Out Run. In 1990, Square followed up with an exclusive North American sequel, Rad Racer II. It differed little from the first version, and players considered the gameplay inferior;[1] as a result, it was not as successful as the first ... (more)

"Release Date: August 7, 1987 (JP) Publisher: SquareSoft Developer: SquareSoft Genre: Racing Ever since I was little, I've always been a fan of Rad Racer. In fact, I've always been partial to racing games like this and OutRun, where you have to reach your goal in a certain time limit while dodging traffic, and Rad Racer was my first introduction to this style of game. To this day, I enjoy popping this in for a few minutes when I'm bored, as it's a good way to kill a small block of time. "

"Beat July 29, 2012 Rad Racer, along with OutRun, was one of the first racing games that I fell in love with. There's just something I enjoy about trying to beat a timer while weaving through traffic. That said, Rad Racer is a pretty fun racer for its time, and it's easy to pick up and play, but requires skill and a little luck to make it to the end...Especially since in the final few levels the other cars on the road can be pretty cheap and turn into whatever lane you're either in or in the pro"
