So when I got my PlayStation 3 I had nothing but shooter games - Metal Gear Solid 4, Haze and Uncharted.
The reason I wanted a PS3/360 is so I could play the impossible in games...
I went to IGN and checked out their Racing Game section. All I saw in the reviews were how much all these racing games wanted to be as realistic as possible. I don't see what people would get out of watching a racing game thinking they are actually driving etc. The only racing sim I have enjoyed is Forza Sport.
I want a game more like OutRun 2. It is straight up racing fun. No need to worry about hand braking on certain corners, or your car being bashed about.
So today morning I went old school. Brought out my playstation and put in Ridge Racer. Yes people, ridge racer. My god I can't believe how fun it was.
Now, I remembered seeing ridge racer for PS3 so I got pretty happy. Checked out the review which wasn't that great but I mean, every racing game on the PS3 i've tried has been pretty poor. I doubt Ridge Racer could be as worse as Gran Turismo or Grid. So I am going to bite the biscuit and buy Ridge Racer. Plus Ridge Racer 7 Doesn't look like some glossy plastic unlike Grid or GT5.
I also have Ferrari Challenge on PS3 which I bought recently - I don't regret buying it, though I am not exactly "wow"-ed by it either. It is a combination of arcade racing and sim...In my opinion it is a confused game.
