Being a gamer myself I prefer Gran Turismo 4, but I would like to know what everybodies' favorite racing game is.

PGR3 is badass online. I've heard Test Drive Unlimited is cool online as well. You just drive around Honolulu and if you pass someone you want to race, you just invite them to it. Kinda like a driving MMORPG

I was hooked on PGR2 for a while. I have a couple friends with xbox 360 and they both have said that PGR3 and Forza Motorsport is prettier, but no more fun than PGR2. The xbox live really makes PGR2 a lot more fun.

My other favorite is Rallisport Challenge 2. It's a ton of fun. Much more fun to play solo than PGR2. It's a lot more offroad than PGR2.

Comparing them as solo games, PGR2 is all about making each turn perfectly, which can get kindof frustrating if you can't find the right line. Rallisport Challenge is just about surviving the race and beating the time. It's not as precise and maybe a bit more forgiving. It's still challenging and gets progressively more difficult, but it's a bit less frustrating.

From the xbox live perspective, PGR2 is just about perfect. It's easy to find races, it's fun to race, and playing cat-and-mouse and last-man-standing are a lot of fun.

grand turismo and forza are the best

a lot of people hate it but i loved the tokyo extreme racer games... i just beat the latest (import tuner challenge) the week it was released... pretty fun game IMO

i bought Test Drive: Unlimited and that shit got boring after like 4 days..... thank god it was a budget game... hopefully after i fix my router and they release some updates it will be alittle funner.

Test Drive: Unlimited

Not super realistic but It is fun that there are other REAL PEOPLE rolling around in cars at the same time. Everyone who plays the game gets logged into a giant world or M.O.O.R as they call it (Massively Open Online Racing).

morbid: I'll have to try out forza motorsport 2, looks good.

I am a GranTurismo junkie. >:D
Have 1,2,3 & 4 and if there will be a GT5 it to will be in my collection.

I have yet to play a racing game better than GranTurismo that actually "feels" close to the real thing. The Physics Engine is spectacular!

You just made me all tingly with excitement. ;D Guess I'm buying a PS3
You know, if I had a dollar for every chick that said that to me...

But yeah, I'd start saving now if I were you. It'll be March or so before they're avaible again and they'll still cost more than a month of my rent.

Where the heck do you live???

Back in NYC that was not even a weeks worth of rent for me and in SoCal it's 10 days of rent. Damn! I want your rent bill. 8)

I still don't have an XBOX360. Last Christmas I gave my reservation to a friend so her son would have one for Christmas. Hopefully that good Karma will kick in one day soon. LOL

Also, you can pick up a 360 anywhere now.
Oh I know, but they usually like you to give them some form of currency in exchange and Armed Robbery would probably have a negative effect on my application with the Sheriffs Dept.. LOL!
*deep sigh* So a shortage of funds is my problem.

However, I am open to the idea of donations. Please make your checks payable to the "Help Bex get a XBOX360 Foundation."
disclaimer: Your donations are not Tax Deductible, but unlike other charities 100% of your donation will go to the cause.

;D 8) ;D

You know, it wono't effect anything if you don't get caught, and it seems to have worked pretty well for a few guys with PS3's.

But sadly, I will not be able to donate to your fund. It's a bad time of year to ask for donations as I'm already strapped as it is...

Good luck with that cop job, though. I'll send any tickets I get in to future to you to be "taken care of."

Spy Hunter is a classic. PGR3 is great these days. Its all about the cars and racing. I don't need to jack someone, or shoot em for their ride as part of the game.
