What is considered the best racing game on the Xbox360? Which racing game is your favorite? I have played a few racing games on the Xbox360. The ones that I have played are Forza Horizon, Forza 4, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, Need for Speed The Run, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Ridge Racer Unbounded, Ridge Racer 6, Test Drive Unlimited, Blur, and PGR 3. I really like Forza Horizon, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, and Need for Speed The Run out of all those. My favorite one of those is Forza Horizon, and the most fun online was Need for Speed Hot Pursuit.

Project Gotham Racing 4 is my favorite racing game on Xbox 360.

For me it is Forza 3, everything about it was impressive, and I loved the presentation.

NFS Hot Pursuit easily

Really loved Burnout Paradise. And the original Need for Speed: Most Wanted (the launch title) was a blast.

Forza Horizon would definitely be my #2. Hot Pursuit though, I've never played a racing game that gave you a better since of speed. The open world and tracks were great too. I felt Horizon's over racing area, even though it fit into the idea of a racing festival, was relatively underwhelming.

I played many of the games you listed OP, I really enjoyed the Dirt and Forza series. My favorite would have to be Forza Horizon, I felt it struck the perfect balance between simulation and arcade style racing, and I really enjoyed the Colorado landscape, I was starting to get tired racing the same race tracks over and over with Forza 2-4. It'll be interesting to see how Forza 5 maintains my interest.

I was really surprised by how well done Forza Horizon was. I have to say that, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, Burnout Paradise, and Blur are my favorite racing games on the 360.

My favorite racing game on the 360 has been Forza 4. I can't wait for Forza 5 on the XOne.

i just felt Horizon was better in that aspect and i just couldn't get into Hot Pursuit for some reason.

Forza 4 and Horizon are my favorites

I forgot about Forza

#19 Posted by Blueresident87 (5336 posts) -

I'd have to say Horizon, or Forza 4

#20 Posted by Revixe06 (1021 posts) -

Out of the very few racing games I've played, Midnight Club: Los Angeles is still my favorite. Love the series. I just couldn't ever get into Forza.

Does Trials:Evolution count.I know it does not really count as a racing game,but it is my favorite game that comes even close to racing.If that does'nt count,I'll go with Forza:Horizon.

#28 Edited by RitsukoBlue (28 posts) -

Hands down! Forza 4!!!

#29 Posted by marinevetstl (115 posts) -

I love Forza 2 and 3

I like to play many racing games on my XBox360 but my favorite one is:

Need for Speed as it is the best racing game which I can play at all platforms.

#31 Posted by Sparky04 (3384 posts) -

Burnout Paradise, the sense of speed is just incredible, I popped it in the Xbox the other week thinking I would probably get bored quickly and I wasted like two hours just speeding around the city. I'm still hoping that Criterion makes a next gen Burnout game.

#32 Edited by immortality20 (7957 posts) -

My personal favourite is Burnout Revenge. Played that game for dozens of hours, but didn't like Paradise at all. I felt Burnout excelled in a closed course environment personally.

Other great titles are Stuntman: Ignition, Forza Horizon, NFS: Undercover and Driver: SF.

#33 Posted by x-2tha-z (8896 posts) -

My favourite is PGR3. I don't play a lot of racers. I find racing games to be too stressful.

Import Tuner Challenge. Sadly it's the last game for the tokyo xtreme racer series :(
