    Classic & Current Racing and Driving Game Discussion Thread!

    Hope I am not the only one here but I decided to create this thread to chat about classic and current racing games on the Playstation throughout the years. Can be anything from 4 wheels to 2, off road to on track and everything in between. As you can see from my user title I am a massive racing game fan and I am hoping to find some people to reminisce with from PS1 till PS4!

    I shall start by naming some of the games that I will never forget:

    TOCA Touring Cars - PS1
    TOCA Touring Cars 2 - PS1
    TOCA World Touring Cars - PS1
    Le Mans 24 Hours - PS1
    Le Mans 24 Hours - PS2
    Driver - PS1
    Colin McRae Rally - PS1
    Colin McRae Rally 2.0 - PS1
    Colin McRae Rally 3 - PS2
    Gran Turismo Series - PS1 - PS3
    F1 Series - PS1 - PS3

    These are just some of the games I will always remember, especially the original TOCA Touring car and Colin McRae series where good times where had

    Feel free to join in the discussion and hopefully I can find some gamers who feel the same way and make a proper thread of it

    Destruction Derby, brah.

    Lack of local versus mode in modern racers is an absolutely astonishing.

    Currently playing: Need for Speed: Most Wanted.

    Classic & Current Racing and Driving Game Discussion Thread!

    Played the original Formula 1 game on the ps1 to death. Loved that game. Also played the $#@! out of Need for Speed 2. Me and bro had so much fun just $#@!ing around in that game. There were a number of cheats to get different vehicles and was also the first time I had seen the Ferrari F50, still one of my fave cars!

    My first rally game was V Rally. It was ok I guess but nothing compared to Gran Turismo. Man that game blew me away. The sheer amount of cars in that game and graphics at the time where the standouts for me

    The early F1 games where great, especially as Murray Walker commentated on them, can still remember some of his sayings

    "If I very much mistaken.... I AM very much mistaken"

    "It's MICHEAL SCHUMACHER!!!!!!"

    "Straight off the Tarmac and straight into the kitty litter"

    I remember playing 2 player co-op championship on TOCA 2 with my mate and pulling an all nighter just to complete it, we kept getting stuck at Croft because I would always finish where I was supposed to and he didn't so we never progressed

    The commentary on those early F1 games where brilliant! I wish they'd bring back the commentary on the newer ones although it wouldn't be the same without Murray Walker

    True it wouldn't, didn't he do a little commentating on the classic content in F1 2013 though?

    I was into F1 way before then but F1 97 really hiked up my interest in the sport and have been into it ever since!

    Still remember one of the F1 games on PS1 where you could change all the names of the drivers to who you want but I can't remember for the life of me which one it was!

    That was F1 97 as Villeneuve naming rights wasn't acquired so he was called Williams No. 1 lol but you could change it to Villeneuve

    I really hope they bring some of these classics to Vita and PS Now, keep toying with the idea of buying a PS3 fat just so I can play all these classics again lol!

    Thought I would include some nostalgia in this post











    Ah good times

    It won't be anything compared to what we play nowadays but it's always good to go back to an old school game like GT2 just to remember what it was like!

    I have not played it in so long I can't even remember the menu system lol

    F1 2002 was my first racing game. Actually i think it was my first game ever, got that and a PS2 for either my Birthday or Christmas. Remember Murray Walker saying "and he's into the kitty litter" if you went off :L

    Never missed an F1 game since, apart from the one on the Wii.

    Amazing how far we've come from the PS2 :/

    I played the shiz out of every F1 game from 1999 to 2004! i stopped in 2004 because they bastardised F1 rules!
    i know it was boring but i'd been a schumey fan from the nineties so i had no complaints

    started playing again in 2011 i think.

    in retrospect. i had so much free time back then. Used to do full length races during the 2004 season. My thumb would go flat holding 'X' for an hour and a half - it still bears a bit of that shape to this day!

    You know up until very recently I still used the X button to accelerate, square button to brake and the D-Pad to turn. Not I use the triggers and analog stick. Should've made the transition years ago lol

    i was guilty of the "If you press harder, you go faster!" mentality

    my thumb was buried in the controller at times

    F1 2013 is very good, but its still not where it should be. Combine all the codies games and it would be near complete, although the career is pretty badly done.

    I know the thumb feeling :L Thank god for the analogue sticks! Luckily i've got a wheel now.


    @Gers

    How could you use the d-pad to steer?!?!?!? :L

    Being an old school gamer, i was so used to the original playstation controller that when the original Dual Shock came out I couldn't get used to steering with the analogs.

    It wasn't until 6 months ago that a guy at work got me told straight to use the analogs and he guaranteed I'd go faster lol he was right

    I was also guilty of the "press x to go faster" lol, but was never one to tilt the controller to go round a corner lol!

    I had every F1 game since 97 apart from the one on the Wii, but have 2009 on the Vita so I don't feel like I missed outs on that one!

    I loved Le Mans 24 Hours on the PS1, especially since your car could overheat and you had the temperature gauge at the bottom of the screen, not known a game like it since, shame no one else has brought out something recently! Would love to see one made for new gen but think I will carry on dreaming there lol
