The Early 2000’s
It seems like awesome car games have slowly faded out from the world of gaming. In the early 2000’s, we had amazing car racing games. Who could forget the need for speed series. Underground one was amazing, underground two was even better. Also, need for speed most wanted and need for speed carbon was amazing as well. Apart from need for speed, we also had juiced. Juiced was an amazing game, both 1 and 2. I look back today and ask myself, what happened? Car games 2017 better be great.
In the past two or three years, there have been some racing games from well known developers which have been alright. Keyword being alright. There have been many forza’s, driveclub, project cars, dirt rally, and a few others. There was even Need for speed 2015, but that game was also a flop. These present time games are not memorable. You play them for a few hours and you drop them. You don’t have the urge to come back home from school or work and play. Most of these games have no story or the story is very dull and boring. Last thing is customization. Where did that go? It seemed like the older games had way more customization than present time. We are moving into the future, but the games seem to be going back to the past.
The Future – Car Games 2017
As a racing game fans, we can only hop that the main developers go back to their roots, and make racing games fun again. We are tired of stale story lines, lack of customization and limitation. At this point, I think it is fair to say that most people would be happy with remastered versions of older games. Also, I could be wrong, but there may also be a need for speed coming out late 2017, so we can only cross our fingers and hope!
