- Forza Motorsport Series

An arch rival of the Gran Turismo, this game also features real driving experience for PlayStation users. With neck to neck features, Forza is a substitute to Gran Turismo. If you don’t find Gran Turismo in the market, go for Forza. Both are great games for Xbox and PlayStation platforms.

This is exactly not a racing game but this will give you pleasure of law-breaking drive tricks, hitting the owners and drive away in their expensive cars or to drive or fly some of the most weird vehicles like a harvester, an airport luggage vehicle, tractors, cycle and even an Apache gunship chopper ( in San Andreas) . It is the most popular game ever made and people still love it San Andreas version because of the modification freedom provided in the game
some GTA lovers in India has replaced original vehicles from these Indian Cars.
- Burnout series
“An experience of what happens just after a car accident” this is what the game is all about, besides racing, the game featured realistic accidental crashes that must have stopped kids from underage speeding. The graphics are still excellent and Burnout is still rocking, the most exciting part is that mode in which you can challenge any of the driver who is passing you in speed.10
10. The Need For Speed Series
Creator- Electronic Arts
When it comes to virtual racing games, there was, is and will be only one leader and that is the Need For Speed. The king of racing games according to me, you can play this game on which ever platform you want whether it is a Java Phone, Android, i phone, PC , PlayStation or on a Xbox. I have grown up playing NFS 2 and other parts and played the Rivals recently, every time NFS has amazed me. To the NFS lovers like me, it is more than a game it’s a part of their childhood and teenage memories. NFS being the best racing game has a special corner in our hearts that have grown up playing this game. This game with its legendry history and glorious previous parts, is moving forward with new ideas and cars every time.
