    Hotshot racing but not HotWheels Unleashed?? Gotta disagree with that!

    Couldn't recommend Midnight Club LA highly enough, brilliant game and likely the last we'll ever see of the franchise since people somehow find GTA V's cheap ripoff cars with their basic as can be physics a worthy replacement.

    Project Gotham 3/4 despite achievements being unobtainable still plays fantastic now and still looks incredible.

    Big fan of racing games here so I added a few of these to my wish list. I unfortunately disagree with Split Second as I feel aside from the unique explosions, it's a bare bones racer with some of the worst rubber banding I've seen in a game to the point of it almost being frustratingly unfair at times. Also the fact that you have a better shot at winning events while using the worst cars in the game than the cars you unlock towards the end due to the brutal AI and the ease of controlling those cars doesn't sit right with me, but hey to each their own I guess.

    PGR 4 / Rallisport Challenge 2 / Hydro Thunder Hurricane / Racing Evoluzione will remind among my all time favorites... So sad we dont get remasters of racing games because of stupid licencing...

    The fact this article has the line "Forza Horizon 5 is an absolutely stunning and well-rounded game, offering a bigger world and a fair bit more in terms of variety and progression systems, but in its current state, FH5 is hard to recommend." and yet FH5 just reached the final of GOTY is quite perplexing

    It's a great game but it's not one of the best 2 games of the year imo

    man, Split/Second was so good. Wish they would have done a second one.

    I think they must have forgotten to add it's section in as it's there in the related items column.

    Trackmania is amazing but the achievement list is extremely difficult. Only like the very top % of players can even unlock the final levels let alone gold all maps

    I wish they would just remaster it but the company has been dead for ages and I have no idea who owns the licence of the game but they are wasting an opportunity.

    Art of Rally was a huge step down from Absolute Drift. If you like that vibe, I'd highly recommend Drift over Rally. Rally gets extremely repetitive and the tracks just aren't that interesting and the freeroam bits are just as boring

    I’m missing Sonic games on the list. Sonic Racing Transformed and Team Sonic Racing are my two favourite non-Mario kart racing games.
