    I am a huge fan of racing games. Have played a variety of games on PC. Here are some games I like/dislike-

    Need For Speed series​

    I have played all NFS titles except NFS 6- V Rally. My fav is NFS 3 Hot Pursuit. Other titles I liked-

    *NFS Underground 2- Great game, was the first game having the freeroam feature. Good customisation options.

    *NFS Most Wanted- Another good game, famous for its spectacular cop chases. Cars also good.

    *NFS Carbon- Similar to MW in terms of gameplay, but a bit too dark (you race at night). Canyon races awesome.

    *NFS Pro Street- After a long time EA returned to track racing with the Pro Street. Great game, with real damage and car tuning. Dislikes- graphics and game engine.

    *NFS Undercover- EA returned to cop chases and free roam mode in the Undercover. Ok, I admit, I cheated to finish this game (downloaded a trainer to give unlimited cash and boost). :)

    *NFS Hot Pursuit 2010- The guys at Criterion have done a good job. Nice city, nice cars, and its easy to drift (if you don't hit oncoming traffic!).

    And the ones I disliked-

    *NFS Shift- EA calles it a true racing simulator. Works best if you have a proper racing wheel with paddle shifters (am not referring to Yashik sirji :D). Not so good on the keyboard. Or I don't know how to follow the racing line?

    *NFS Shift 2: Unleashed- Got the game, installed it, played some races, never palyed it again. The cars don't turn using the keyboard. Probably again a racing wheel is required. Or I don't know how to race....

    Now waiting for NFS: The Run....

    Codemasters​

    *Race Driver Grid- What a game! EGO engine is fantstic. A bit difficult to play for the first time, but once you get used to the racing line (yes, this game taught me to follow racing lines :p) and braking points, its a joy to play. And there is no need for a racing wheel as well! Also, the career mode is very interesting.​

    *DiRT 2- Another game using the EGO engine, its the first rallying game I played. Game paly just like Grid is fantastic. Another great effort from Codies.​

    Have got F1 2010 and DiRT 3, can't wait to paly them once I get home. (Am in Chandigarh these days) ​

    Please share about your favourite games also.

    Can't say about the current crop of games, but Gran Turismo 4 on PS2 was/is a classic.

    NFS series is great entertainment. The last i played was NFS:MW :p

    I was addicted to NFS Series. I completed most of its series. I installed those games on my offce desktop/laptop & was playing on that.

    Once I get caught by manager & he handed over me a warning letter.

    Some how I mostly like racing games only. Not a big fan of other games. I used to play NFS Most Wanted on a PC but was only a demo version. Few chases and some challenges. I have bought an Xbox 360 to experience the NFS on the big screen. I have NFS: Undercover, I like it, but for me Most Wanted is awesome. The graphics are too good when you break through a police blockade.

    I have played NFS series (PS2; PC),
    DiRT (PC),
    GRiD (PC),
    Formula 1 2006 and 2010 (PS2; PC),
    Colin McRae aka CMR (PC),
    WRC 2011 (PC),
    a few more that I don't remember.

    NFS Most Wanted has been the best till date and the subsequent ones are utter crap in my opinion.

    I have driven FIAT Grande Punto in DiRT, NFS MW, WRC and GTA San Andreas.

    My vote is also for NFS MW. I was also using FIAT Grande Punto & it was TJET.

    After that I used Auto TT & won the series.
