Hey guys..

I've just won a PS4 and was wondering what the best car racing games are? Currently have an XBox and have no idea what's good on the PS4.

Cheers

Do you prefer arcade car racing style or simulators? I prefer the arcade ones like Burnout Paradise (ps3). I'm not very good playing simulators such Gran Turismo.

I'd read that the latest Gran Turismo was a 'stripped down' version with no dynamic weather effects and limited cars/tracks??? From what I've read Project Cars 2 is better..

Prefer simulators. Have Forza on my Xbox 360 and had Gran Turismo on my old PS2

Gran Turismo is impossible, and will waste your life away. Stay away!

GT series.  Looking forward to adding GT Sport to the collection of unopened games awaiting time to actually play them.

 

Project Cars 2 seems good so far after a week of it running.  Definitely on the Sim side of things.

 

If you like rally, Dirt Rally is good.  Dirt 4 is sitting in the previously mentioned collection of unopened games currently but it's supposedly better still.

 

Wouldn't recommend the WRC series.  Either I need a lot more time playing it or it's an arcade game pretending to be a simulator.

 

 

 

What controller are you planing on using?

Not sure if they are PS4 games but I played on the PC and enjoyed

 

Project Cars - simulator type

 

The Crew - arcade type

 

 





I know a little more than nothing but not much...

Initially it'll just be the hand controller that comes with the PS4. May get a steering wheel at a later date.

I'd prefer an Xbox as that's what I'm used too but have won the PS4.

Find someone silly enough to do a swap with you ;)!
GT is all good but Forza just sets the bar and its yet to be touched..
