Today’s incredibly high standard of gaming has seen the industry produce some absolute masterpieces over the past few years! Here’s a few of our suggestions if you’re looking to dive head first into the best racing games the industry has to offer!
Gran Turismo Sport
Available on: Playstation 4
Gran Turismo Sport is everything you could want from a racing game, and more. It’s sheer range of available cars, it’s online integration and not to mention the incredible attention to detail makes GT sport a must for any racing fan’s collection.
GT may follow a typical route that it has offered since it’s early PS1 games, but I say if it’s not broken don’t fix it!
Work your way up the ranks by earning your licences, as you qualify for bigger and more competitive races. Not to mention the nice added little bonus of a daily reward!
Complete the mileage equivalent of a marathon and you’ll be rewarded with a random vehicle to add to your garage, and when I say random, I mean it can be a Vauxhall Corsa, or a Bugatti Veyron. Luck of the spin!
Around since the mid 90s, GT has established itself as one of the all-time leading racing game favourites, and with the release of GT Sport, that’s unlikely to change anytime soon!
Not to mention the inclusion of PS VR, as if this experience couldn’t get any more immersive…
Forza Motorsport 7
Available on: Xbox One
The Xbox response to Gran Turismo? It comes in the form of Forza.
Already in it’s 7th installment, Forza Motorsport has been the go-to racing game for the Xbox owners over time. Utilising the unique capabilities of the Xbox One, Forza Motorsport 7 offers an experience truly like no other.
Expanding on it’s range of available vehicles, tracks and online play – Forza Motorsport 7 is the pinnacle of racing experiences available on the Xbox One.
Available on: Playstation 4
Showing a genuine rectification of the earlier version out around the same time as the PS4’s release, the brand new version of ‘Driveclub’ is quite comfortably one of the best racing games available on the market today.
Featuring state-of-the-art weather simulation and truly amazing circuits, it utilises a ‘challenge’ mode, which lets you test yourself against virtually anyone in the community. Get challenged? You’ll get a notification through the PSN app – whether you accept it is up to you!
An added bonus, just like GT Sport, is the integration of the Playstation VR – the STUNNING experience will help you realise just how remarkable this title is!
Formula 1 2018
Available on: Playstation 4, Xbox One
Ever looked at the performances of the likes of Hamilton, Ricardo, Vettel… etc and thought you could do better? Formula 1 2018 is your chance to prove it!
Reflecting real-life F1 Championship races in virtually every way possible – one noticable upgrade from 2017 is the inclusion of the Hockenheimring and Circuit Paul Richard, giving you the chance to test yourself on brand new tracks.
Perfect for any F1 fan looking to get as close to real life action as possible, without going through all the fuss & palaver of becoming an actual competitive F1 driver.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Available on: Nintendo Switch
The most insane and fiercely competitive racing game in history is back with an absolute vengeance in the form of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
An upgrade in the amount of available characters, tracks and powerups gives the Mario Kart franchise a statement, even in the high standards of gaming in this day & age!
A game that anyone can pick up and play, regardless of age or skill – this one is one to enjoy with friends and family. However, with no shortage of a global community, you’ll never be short of competition!
