We had Sunday marathons with GT A-Spec F1 circuit tracks which rocked and part 4 looks even more rocking.

It debatable.. Especially with the physics engine.... Tracks in GP4 are very good though.... F1C 99-02 is much more moddable though... add mods on top of both, and its gets blurrier..

Pc only though I'm afraid.

Argh, now I don't know what to do

Know there's a lot of good racing sims out there but, I usually lean more towards the arcade style w/ some realism throughout. GT4 looks to be killer as does the Logitech® Driving Force™ Pro but, I'd hate to go out and buy a PS2 in Nov just as HALO 2 makes its debut.

On the XBOX side, Sega GT2002 is really fun & Froza looks purdy sweet but as far as arcade racing games go, nothing looks to top the GT series.

Its pretty obvious though, the better racing games are on consoles.

PC

If you want racing car simulation, try Live for Speed S1

- Demo: http://www.liveforspeed.net/file_rsc...S_S1G_DEMO.zip


If you want pure arcade fun and track building, try TrackMania

- Demo: http://www.gamershell.com/download_5851.shtml


Those two are the driving games that have been taking almost all my gaming time for a looooooong time now

I would also recommend Gran Prix Legends for pure sim or wait until GTR comes out(it's going to be BIG).For arcade racers I would recommend Colin Mc Rae Rally,Gran Turismo(it's not a sim even with tire wear and marathon races) or Burnout games.

Maybe a little Mario Kart but it would have to be the N64 version.

Just my personal choices.

GTR will be interesting.. So far I hear the official word is November for selected European release.. Then other countries will follow.. They just need to find distributors for different geos.

I found this great place for racing sims/games: Rrace Sim Central Forums..

Nobody mentioned Richard Burn's Rally, At first go it's a pretty hardcore sim, and a lot of people complain there's no grip at all in the corners, but once you complete the driving school and learn to back off the accellerator and use your brakes, the game is SERIOUSLY rewarding. I'm playing it with a ps2 joypad at the moment and i can still win events on it, and once you get a feel for the cars and how to drive them it blows colin mcrae away completely. Nothing beats left foot braking around a medium right for some oversteer then straightening up and flooring it out of the apex.
