According to GameSpot, for best sim racing, that would be Gran Turismo 6.

From my personal experience, you can't go wrong with Forza or Gran Turismo of which I prefer Forza.

Forza 5 (AAAE). Of course it's not going to win on Sonyspot. lol!! If you poll journalist it will. Actually Forza 4 is probably better then everything on the list in terms of content.

#3 Edited by marcheegsr (2431 posts) -

I haven't played Forza 5.

But I will say Gran turismo 6 (Im loving it at the moment) followed closely by Forza 4.

#4 Edited by I_can_haz (6484 posts) -

I'm going with GT6. More tracks & cars + better physics >>>>>>>>>>>>>>better graphics of Flopza Microtransactions 5

I rarely play arcade games but I guess NFS is the best out of the list of arcade games you listed.

#5 Posted by AdobeArtist (22747 posts) -

Forza 4. I would have said FM5 if no for the stripped down base content and questionable DLC model.

#6 Posted by FreedomFreeLife (1860 posts) -

For me Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

#7 Posted by PrincessGomez92 (3242 posts) -

Mario Kart Wii or Dirt 3.

#8 Edited by Vatusus (4229 posts) -

For me its either Gran Turismo 5 or Need for speed Hot Pursuit (2010)

GT fills my need for simulation, NFS fills my need for arcade

#9 Posted by CyberLips (1642 posts) -

I bought Burnout Paradise a couple of years ago and it's the only racing game i own, and the only one i need honestly.

Then why did you list Forza 4 and Forza 5? You really are an idiot OP.

#11 Edited by Riverwolf007 (23398 posts) -

gta 5 racing is the most fun out of all those.

at least until they put all those shitty player made tracks into the rotation.

also lol.

gt6 sold 25% of what gt5 did, nobody here bought it because you finally learned your lesson about the gt franchise but you love it and it wins a poll... what a bunch of liars you are.

turd in the punchbowl would win a poll in sw if the turd was an exclusive.

dishonesty helps no one here you know.

why lie about it?

is that really the kind of person you are?

#12 Posted by CrownKingArthur (3795 posts) -

iracing is easily the best, but i don't have a sub

assetto corsa is going incredibly well on early access

forza / gt

#13 Edited by Motokid6 (5020 posts) -

None of the above. Iracing is technically the best sim racer money can buy.

#14 Edited by Couth_ (9921 posts) -

Sad state of affairs when Assetto Corsa and Project Cars early access are the best racers out.. They will be really short on content when they launch too.. Racers suck right now.. Let's just hope the next Forza and GT aren't gimped again

#15 Edited by naz99 (995 posts) -

Next car game gets my vote..I love that game...what little is there at least

The destruction makes racing so much fun..more than any other racer I have played

#16 Posted by Alcapello (524 posts) -

Where's Motorstorm Apocalypse?

#17 Edited by seanmcloughlin (38168 posts) -

The car game I'm having the most fun with lately is Next Car Game

#18 Posted by Salt_The_Fries (8167 posts) -

Forza Horizon!

#19 Posted by foxhound_fox (86957 posts) -

Euro Truck Simulator 2

#20 Posted by Renegade_Fury (16952 posts) -

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. I haven't had this much fun with a racer since F-Zero GX.

#21 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38168 posts) -

Euro Truck Simulator 2

That game + Oculus Rift = Fun

#22 Posted by misterpmedia (3362 posts) -

Lol @ biased TC using photomode & bullshot pictures for both Forzas and gameplay for the rest. icwutudidther.

Burnout Paradise, no contest even if it was a step down from Burnout 3: Take Down. Don't think I ever played the one in between either.

Gagging for a next gen burn out and for Criterion to bring back traditional crash mode junctions without that tacky bouncy car shit.

#23 Edited by Alcapello (524 posts) -

Euro Truck Simulator 2

Yea I read about that game...pass.

GT6 now theres another story, will have to wait 2 see.

#24 Posted by naz99 (995 posts) -

@foxhound_fox: THIS!

I finally bought my first truck a few days ago after doing loafs of odd jobs..I didn't want to take a loan out so it took a while.

What a great game.

its the ones that don't make it into the gta race rotation that grinds gears,

some invited races I have been into,

the race track has been built in the sky around the high rise buildings like halo 3 forge style.

but I think rockstar is aiming for realism, you know,

instead of FUN when it comes to the shit they verify

#26 Edited by reggy72 (122 posts) -

Not listed but PGR4 would be the best racing game, closely followed by Motor storm apocalypse . Forza/GT are quasi simulators.

#27 Posted by W1NGMAN- (9956 posts) -

GT6 was pretty damn impressive, haven't played FM5 yet.

#28 Posted by jake44 (1908 posts) -

Lol @ biased TC using photomode & bullshot pictures for both Forzas and gameplay for the rest.

#29 Edited by TorqueHappens08 (911 posts) -

Dat GT6 shot tho....

Here is a better shot of GT6.

God, it looks so next gen in photomode...it's crazy.

#30 Posted by Solid_Max13 (3482 posts) -

Burnout is mine c'mon you can drive the delorean and ghostbuster car!!!

i'd pick midnight club la over all the racers in the past 8-9 years

Nothing more rewarding than a 1000+ km, damage-free drive across Europe and pulling backwards into a dock on the first try for a perfect finish.

#33 Posted by heretrix (37253 posts) -

Last racing game I'd have to say I REALLY enjoyed was GT 5, mostly in spite of itself. I had a ton of fun playing with people from SW and on my friends list. GT 6, I thought was a goddamn ripoff. As far as features go it was pretty regressive. As flawed as GT5 was it had a lot of meat to it compared to GT6..I thought GT6's driving was better but the game as a whole feels bare bones. I was seriously disappointed by it.

The most fun I had in a racing game has to be Burnout Paradise. It's a shame Criterion really can't do anything for NFS, their games so far have been pretty weak. I just bought Rivals a few days ago but I haven't really gotten into it. I really don't liked being forced to play multiplayer. The little bit I played was somewhat decent though.

Grid 2? FUCK OFF.

#34 Edited by speedfreak48t5p (6215 posts) -

Dirt 3. Such an amazing game.

#35 Posted by Merex760 (4280 posts) -

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed right now. Probably Mario Kart 8 when that comes out.

#36 Edited by napo_sp (191 posts) -

pffft those are console peasant racing games

here are the best racing games

#37 Posted by HadOne2Many (1176 posts) -

Believe it or not physics wise Forza 5 is top dog at the moment. It still pales in comparison to PC Sims for the racing aspect but as a track day simulator it is the best. Of course this is dependant on the Thrustmaster TX being used along with the game.

#38 Edited by jg4xchamp (46683 posts) -

PGR4 because it's actually fun.

#39 Posted by blamix99 (1543 posts) -

Mario kart and GT6 for me

#40 Posted by GoldenElementXL (2578 posts) -

Out of that list it is Sonic Racing Transformed. Mario Kart Wii is garbage. Mario Kart DS and Double Dash are much better.

#41 Posted by adamosmaki (9362 posts) -

Grid 1 by a long shot ( not played 2 yet ). Nothing comes close to instill the feeling of racing as grid does ( even though it leans to the arcade side of thinks )

#42 Posted by TorqueHappens08 (911 posts) -

Damn, No love for Test drive unlimited, or the tokyo extreme racer series......come on people..

#43 Posted by EZs (1309 posts) -

The poll speaks for itself, GT6 win!

#44 Posted by The_Last_Ride (69082 posts) -

Forza 4 is awesome and if Forza 5 is anything like it, it's awesome aswell

#45 Edited by Nuck81 (5773 posts) -

@Riverwolf007: I bought GT6.

It's the best Sim Racer on Consoles, no competition.

Sonic and All Stars Racing: Transformed is a really fun arcade style racer. It has tons of content, lots of things to do, and is a real challenge on Hard or Expert.

#46 Posted by GrenadeLauncher (3235 posts) -

RIP Burnout. Thanks EA.

Brief reminder that if you buy EA games you contribute to the cancer.

#47 Posted by PAL360 (26575 posts) -

Forza 5.

#48 Posted by timbers_WSU (5753 posts) -

Forza is the best series period. I prefer 5 over 4 but it was tough. The next best racers are Dirt and Sonic Racing Transformed. (Til a new Project Gotham or F-Zero is announced.

#49 Posted by speedfreak48t5p (6215 posts) -

Why? How is your comment remotely accurate or constructive?
