Just wondering what game everyone thinks has the best damage system.

So far I think it is Dirt 2, but i haven't played every racing game out there so I could be wrong.

Some screenshots I took as reference.

You can deform the car in so many ways. Too bad I couldn't get the doors to fall of and trying to get damage on the top of the car is hard and requires some barrel rolls.

Somewhere between Dirt 2 and F1 2010. Whatever it is, it's a Codemasters game.

The age old (1998 ) PC racer called Viper Racing. You could actually turn your car into a tin can in that game :P

Carmageddon 2 had pretty good damage modeling too (if not very realistic).

Burnout Paradise followed by Grand Theft Auto 4. The damage system in GTA4 is rather convincing. It's fun to destroy vehicles in it, more so than in Burnout I think. The damage is persistent and the physics are less...directed I guess. Which I realize is a requirement for Burnout to be good as a racing game rather than a physics sandbox.

Burnout Paradise has the best damage modeling of any racing game I have seen, keep an eye out for NASCAR 2011 to have a good one too though.

Cosmetic: Any Burnout game
Simulated: Not Forza Motorsport 3 or Gran Turismo 4.5; some PC sim like GTR2 or iRacing.

Burnout Paradise has the best looking crashes, but iRacing has the most realistic. It's really no contest:

You're right about that.

I would say GTA actually. Since you can get out of the car and look around, plus you aren't actually racing most of the time, you can actually stop to appreciate the damage model.

Does anyone know if Dirt 2 supports the new GT 2 Fanatec wheel?

Race Driver GRID has a much more responsive and destructive damage system than DiRT 2, I found, which has a much greater mechanical effect on the car. Here's a nice example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaM4OOSZ2-E

Live For Speed's system looks very nice and realistic, definitely better than any other sim racer I've played.

Paradise seems like the best contender, the damage system was so amazing.

Race Driver Grid cuz its has realistic car crashes like the wheel loses, bumper, spoiler, and also wind shield cracks.

Best visual damage: Burnout Paradise/ Grid/ Dirt 2

Best physics affecting damage: iRacing

I'm a sucker for Burnout Paradise. Just because some parts of the game reward you for completely destroying your car :D.

Rigs of Road is a good game or program for the damage effect but hard to play. And if you set damage setting to high, Street Legal Racing is not bad. I have played a game about ten years ago called Viper Racing. It's good for it's time. But non of these games enough for me. I want very very realistic games.

If mods count.. then its definitely GTA IV. You can deform the car so bad the tyres get stuck in the wheel arch and all sorts lol.
