    Question Where's the Top 10 Driving Games thread????

    Hi there

    ???

    Thinking about it I think both Night Driver / ZZAP (?) and early B&W Sprints need a mention too.

    PS. Saw this on YT that's worth a look:

    Hard to choose between Enduro or Outrun, but I think Outrun has a bit of an edge with the variety of scenery, hills, varying paths, etc. Enduro was amazing for the time and is still a blast to play, but Outrun just has a bunch of things that take it a notch up. Not relevant for this topic, but it's also kept up with the times. I think the XBLA Outrun was the last game I bought and played on my 360.

    I would have had Metropolis Street Racer on the Dreamcast on my list as well. I'm not a huge racing game fan, but I really liked that one.

    If you can't do it with 8 bits, you don't need to do it.

    From the RGRU list, I'm gonna have to go with Outrun. But I played Atari's RoadBlasters more than any other driving game. Maybe you guys can do a Top-10 on Combat Driving Games for a future show.

    I'm not the biggest racing game fan, I find most racing games that I do like are very unrealistic. Other than the first Gran Turismo, the games I liked as far as racing is stuff like Hydro Thunder, F-Zero, Mario Kart, Need For Speed Most Wanted, stuff like that. Also have been playing some Blur and Burnout Paradise as far as newer games go.

    Jeez. I can't believe I forgot about Burnout Paradise. I thought for sure I was going to "red ring" my original Xbox 360 because I was playing it so much.

    So I would have to say my favorite driving game is Burnout Paradise and my favorite combat driving game is Atari's RoadBlasters.
