Cool Old skool racing games

Back in the golden days of gaming most of the popular arcade games were racing games. It was a great way to dream before being old enough to actually drive a car. Which classic games from the pre Gran Turismo era did you like growing up? One vote for Pole Position.

Between that, the Ninja Turtles game, and the Simpsons game, I was a pretty happy kid

still got most of those classic's before the fancy video games came out.

before the file share crack down I got a copy of mame and over 500 classic arcade games. [my first big PC job, first day they set me up with napster so I could download all I wanted. Those where the days.]

id have to say spyhunter but loved offroad, that 4 player supercross type trucks. But it came much later in it, when consoles were already out.

If you didn't have to pump quarters into a machine, they don't count as arcade games.

Oh man, I spent soooo many hours at the arcade it wasn't funny. Centipede was my fav. Always had the high score. Best times were when report cards were realeased, our local arcade gave extra coins for good grades, so all my friends would come. Ahh, to be young again.

First racing game I ever played was Test Drive:


But Stunts was a lot better, until we lost the manual. It was coded so that you crashed unless you entered the proper code word from the manual.

Talking

In the style of Pac Man, another top down 2D maze game from Namco via Midway. 1980 Rally-X, squirt oil and release smoke to foil chasing cars, and fool 'em into crashing into each other. I tell you, it was exciting.







Pollution!...OMG!!

Autoduel on the Apple ][.



Then there was the stuff by Papyrus (Indy 500, NASCAR) that were great racing SIMULATIONS! I abslutely HATE certain driving games because there was little realism. Any game in which you can rub a wall and still easily pass stuff was a game that I felt deserved being flushed down the toilet.

Big + 1 here! I still have Top Gear for the SNES, although the system wasn't working properly the last time I tried. I also have every version of Mario Kart to date!

Any other Mario Kart Wii players? If so, post or PM your friend code and I will look up and post or PM mine.
