GPL is what turned my fun into an addiction. I was never good, but I can't even begin to count how many laps I did at Monza.

 

NASCAR 3, then NASCAR 2003.

 

F1 2002

 

GT2 and GT Legends

 

iRacing

I have not really ever done any PC gaming apart from one F1 game in 2000

 

I know its not in the last 10 years, but my total list only features 2 from before then

 

F1 Championship 1997 on N64

F1 2000 on PC

F1 2006 PS3

F1 Toca Race driver 3?

F1 2013 - I really loved the classic content

 

Really never felt all that impressed with any of  the F1 games from Codemasters. Often feel there is something missing. 

 

Gran Turismo - Never had enough time to make my way through it. 

 

I have quite enjoyed Grid Autosport

Live for Speed is the game I spent the most amount of time with, and it's the only game that has made online racing enjoyable for me. Its handling across a wide variety of cars also makes it a clear favourite, and I also like that it uses fictional tracks. The ease with which one can use and distribute custom car liveries also remains unmatched. Unfortunately no major development has happened for almost 10 years (it barely fits the criteria of the thread!), but it has held up surprisingly well.

I haven't seriously played any new games for a few years and never had a computer that was great at running games, but a few that stand out for me:

 

Gran Turismo 4-Possibly the most complete racing game. Was a big step up on the previous versions for me, some great new original tracks and additions of other fantastic tracks such as Suzuka, Nordschleife and Le Mans. There was a fantastic variety of cars, and besides the different racing modes, one could be a "team manager" in B-spec and I found that fun sometimes. I remember doing a 24 hour endurance race (sped up 3x of course) where my car was faster but tyre wear was higher than the others. I figured out that pushing harder and making more pit stops was faster, and I won by less than a lap over "24" hours. That was satisfying. Countless great times with friends on multiplayer too.

 

F1 Challenge 99-02: The career was a good concept and I had endless fun racing as different drivers from the past, as I had not had the chance to play as those drivers on previous games as I didn't have a Playstation at the time.

 

Need for Speed: Just a lot of fun, the drag races against friends are addictive because once you both get the idea of it, it's always so close and it's fun jinking around and trying to break your friends concentration on avoiding traffic :lol:  Burnout Takedown was great for a laugh too.

 

TOCA Race Driver 2-Great fun trying the different series and lots of different circuits.

Assetto Corsa. Driving the Ferrari 458 GT2 with its engine screaming around the corners of Mugello, Spa, Monza, Imola.. great stuff.

I don't remember Need For Speed having drag racing. Unless you mean those games Electronic Arts has vomited after Need For Speed (5) Porsche Unleashed...

F1 2000 on PS One. If you were really good at it, you didn't even have to use the brake-pedal at all, lifting the throttle was more than enough. Plus, it had a Safety Car. Something Codemasters have only implemented in 2011 and it hasn't been faultless ever since.

I'm afraid I do, haha. I remember the Porsche Unleashed, that was a fun game as well, but I had to go round to my mate's to play it as I didn't have a Playstation at that time.

GTR2. Without any doubt.

Mainly due to the base Sim engine.

Mainly due to the vast number of mods and tracks.

Yes, there's a tad more in rFactor, but I prefer SimBin's way of defining 'sim'. Moreover, it's quite easy to finetune mods, mixing classes, setting up personal championships and so on. Which includes the family WTCC, Race07, STCC, STCC2 and in some manner RaceRoom, too.

Speaking online, I've invested lots of hours with SimRaceWay and iRacing a bit as well. I really like the sim engine in iRacing.

Assetto Corsa I like some mods, too, but I think it needs further polishment before an official release, the sim part feels too much 'Grid' like with a touch of NFS Shift. Not my style.

I really hope the ppl at Slightly Mad Studios copy some of their SimBin fellows work talking the sim part of upcoming Project C.A.R.S.

 

Speaking rally, I still play Colin McRae Rally 2, yes It's old, but the basic rally sim part engine was done that time, though I enjoy playing the latest WRC releases and Dirt-series, too.

 

But I like the retro part just as I really enjoy unearthing my Speed King for C64 once in a while - my first racing game I would call 'sim'  :D

 

/Edited due to some nonsence auto-correction from my new smartphone in the original post.

Need for Speed Road and Track (and special edition) had no drag racing (best game of serie in my opinion! You should try it with uh...abandoware and dosbox emulator!)

Need for Speed II and Special Edition had no drag racing but you were able to rutn araound and drive wrong direction of track.

Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit had police chases, you were able to play as cop and you were able to lay spike strips. But no drag racing.

Need for Speed IV: Road Challenge had first time car damage (body dents and parts fatique) but no drag racing.

Need for Speed Porsche 2000 had career run as Porsche test driver or/and racing career by time and you were able to make lot of money investing on cars at some era and decade later sell them with big margins. Most important, it had working indicator lights! But no drag racing.

 

After that, shit hit the fan and EA released lot of shit car games under emblem of Need for Speed and they indeed had drag racing. RIP Need for Speed 1994-2000
