21JaxonHSun 21st Jun 2020 I’m really not a big racing fan. But when I do enjoy racers, it’s always either cart racers, futuristic racers, or arcade racers. And even then I tend to be rather picky (Mario Kart or Sonic Transformed for cart racers, F-Zero for futuristic racers, though I did enjoy Wipeout to an extent on Vita and in VR, but that was more because there wasn’t any other viable competition for futuristic racers on handhelds or VR) and for arcade racers, I have to be honest- thus far, only Forza Horizon and Burnout have ever really done it for me. Tried Need For Speed Most Wanted on Wii U, and it was a quality game, but Idk, just wasn’t addictive like Burnout is. And GRID Autosport, again, quality game but, didn’t grab me, probably because it was more of a SIM racer. Good at what it did, just not my thing. I did enjoy Driveclub VR though. But... like Wipeout, that was due to being in VR. Still, that was a rad experience. This game is just incredible for pick up and play action. It’s so good. Especially on Switch where you just wake from sleep mode in handheld and race all over Paradise City. I think I can safely say this is the best arcade racing experience ever released on a portable gaming device. @gcunit Very true. And while it may not be a very scientific metric, I would also add an arcade racer is one where you don’t need analog triggers. Not to say they can’t enhance the experience, but in other racers it’s a MUST (well, I won’t say “must”, because plenty of people have and do manage to play fine with digital, but it’s not optimal), whereas in arcade racers you’re basically encouraged to just floor it all the time, and even when you don’t need to you can just let off the gas or tap the break as needed- arcade racers have less granularity, or resolution, of speed required to play the game.
