Racing Games

Arcade-ish racing

Burnout 3: Takedown - PlayStation 2
Awesome sense of speed and really good system and mechanics. Also, it has offline multiplayer (with A.I. cars also on the match).

Xenon Racer
It's pretty and has good art design, it also features offline multiplayer. And it's not open world.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted - PlayStation 3
It's really pretty, with great art direction and even though it's all one city, there's a bit of visual variety. There's also variety in the events, even though fittingly races are the focus (circuit races, even!). It would be best not being open world since it does nothing much with its open-worldness and it makes even painting your car harder. But at least the cops aren't all that annoying (still way too much). And the open world makes it so you can make your own shortcuts in the races. It's a very exciting game, with amazing sense of speed and exhilarating action.

Split/Second - PlayStation 3
Very good looking and intense. The sense of speed is also really good. Also, it has offline multiplayer (and with AI cars also, to boot!). It's a bit visually repetitive but car handling is great and so is track design/layout. I also have to mention that all the time while playing I'm missing car takedowns and nitro, cause the destruction is a bit too scripted and the gameplay is a bit basic. 8 cars on a race might seem few, but it's enough.

Having come out of a Kickstarter campaign, it's a spiritual successor to the Rollcage series. It also has local multiplayer.

Top Gear 2 - Super famicom and SNES
The variety is real with this one. And the OST is awesome in these games! This second one added car damage.

The predecessor to the Top Gear series. Amiga game. Ported to Sega Genesis as Lotus II Recs. It's just a shame it can't play both music and sound FX at the same time. Unlike TG, this is point-to-point, but I prefer circuit racing.

Burnout Paradise (PS3) - PlayStation 3
Burnout in HD. This controls like a dream, the handling is heavenly. But map navigation is a bit confusing and everything's a bit hard to find, like races and cars and repair shops. At least there are no cops getting in the way.

Inspired by classics like Top Gear, this supports up to 4 players. I don't dig the art-style all that much, it looks a bit much like a mobile game, but it seems fun.

Top Gear - Super famicom and SNES
They should do more games like these, focused on racing, you go from race to race without having to deal with an obnoxious open-world and its annoying cops, and the tracks are varied with snow, rain and night, and with lots of curves and nitro, with many opponent cars in one race, with offline multiplayer, with great graphics and gameplay systems. It has nice mechanics, such as nitro and the need to fuel the cars. The downside is it only runs in split-screen, even in single-player.

F2p game that came from mobile. This one, apparently, is not freemium in its console version. And it has split-screen.

A mobile game that was also ported to the Nintendo Switch. The downside is it being a free-to-play, freemium, game. Apparently this has split-screen.

Trailblazers
A very unique racing made for coop/team races. And it has split-screen. 

But since it's not who arrives first that wins, since it's a team game it's based on points, then it's almost not a racing game.

Although it's graphically obsolete, it's still pretty, and at least mechanically is still worth it. And it still sets an example (like Top Gear) that others should follow of visual variety and focus on racing.

Road Rash II - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Framerate is really poor in these games, so sense of speed is lacking. But the gameplay is nice and the career with its buying of motorcycles and motorcycle parts is novel. The theme is also interesting.

Neat. But without the racing against other cars component. It's a big missed opportunity.

Barely a racing game, but very unique. The game systems are neat. Though lack of offline multiplayer in a game of this nature is a serious flaw.

Racing games I take an interest in. Usually they're current, because racing is one of the genres that most benefit from advancements in the technology of videogame consoles.
