Yes there is certainly a lack of them however realistic racing games don't release a lot on Nintendo platforms historically. That being said gear Club unlimited 2 and V rally 4 are coming out sometime this year, and should scratch that itch. Also Moto Ra ee 4 if you're into bikes

Moto GP 18 is a solid realistic racer.

I wouldn't mind if Forza Horizon 3 came to the Switch, and might consider buying it again. Especially if it's a Deluxe edition that includes all the DLC. The Hotwheels dlc is great, but I haven't felt like buying the other ones.

@FaeKnight Forza is a Microsoft IP and the devs (Playground Games and Turn 10 Studios) are part of Microsoft Studios.

@redd214 Well, I don't know how many realistic racers you'd expect on a platform, but except for the Wii U, all Nintendo platforms have had dozens of realistic racers, so I'm not really feeling the whole "don't release a lot on Nintendo platforms historically".

Both the NES and SNES had all the F1 racers that the other platforms at the time had, and there were even some other famous racers on there, the N64 also had multiple F1 racers, Nascar, V-Rally, the three Top Gear games, and a couple of others, the GameCube also had F1 and Nascar games, and it had R:Racing Evolution, V-Rally 3, several Need for Speed games, a Paris-Dakar game, several motor/bike racing games, ATV racing games, and several other realistic racers, and arguably, the Burnout games, although arcade, can still also serve as semi-realistic racers.

The Wii catalog for racers is pretty much the same story: several Need for Speed games, NASCAR games, F1 games, it had Dirt, it had a Ferrari racing game, several motor/quad/ATV racers and so on, and so on.

So, all in all, I wouldn't really call that a historically small catalog of racing games available on Nintendo platforms, by any stretch of the imagination...

@FaeKnight Well, then you're missing out on some great stuff, because the Blizzard Mountain expansion is just as great as the Hot Wheels expansion.

@ThanosReXXX In comparison to other platforms, yeah its smaller. Thanks for history lesson though.

@redd214 and the majority of them racing games on the cube and Wii sucked. Nobody remembers playing them games.

Regarding the switch. I guess Gameloft could release and non micro transaction version of asphalt 9. Still though, it would be an average racing game. There is nothing great about asphalt and yeah the visuals are nice but performance has always been a problem. Game stutters lots.

I didn't say it was likely, just that I wouldn't mind if it happened. I've played and enjoyed a few Need for Speed games too. Not since the PS2 days though with either Hot Pursuit 2 or Most Wanted, can't remember which one it was. Think it was Most Wanted though.

@FaeKnight both of those were great games, HP2 is one of my favorites of all time! Would kill to have it on switch albeit essentially impossible. Wonder if ea will bring over NFS 2019 whatever it ends up being. Doubt it though.

redd214

FaeKnight

EA, probably not. And I don't think I'd want to play any racing game EA put out anymore. I'm afraid they would turn it into "Racing: Microtransactions required to win".

@redd214 Perhaps in comparison to the PS2''s catalog, which I believe had the biggest games catalog of all consoles so far, but that's not really a fair comparison, and other than that, the difference really isn't as big as you seem to think. Also, during several generations, Nintendo got certain third party games at the same time as the other two consoles, so the only ones they missed out on, were the console-exclusives, but Nintendo did have some of their own offerings to balance that out again.

So, the difference really is negligible for most console generations, regardless of any personal sentiment.
It probably also depends on what one person vs another considers as few titles, in any specific genre.
I consider it to be quite a few, if I look at all the games I listed, from which I know I actually forgot quite a few,
so there's even more available.

Besides, there's dozens upon dozens of genres that have far less games on any console in any generation, so I'd say that realistic racers are pretty well-represented no matter which specific Nintendo platform you look at.

P.S.

You never really said "in comparison with other platforms", just that there have only ever been few realistic racers on Nintendo platforms, which is kind of a skewed truth, and which is why I responded the way I did.

And if we want to do an honest comparison, then we ought to look at percentages, not at number of titles, because for example in the PlayStation's case, complete software catalogs were often several times larger than on Nintendo platforms, so the former having more racing games, doesn't really show us the whole story, in comparison with another platform.

No offense, though.

@FaeKnight the last NFS wasn't as bad as people made it seem really. I made it through the entire game 100% and didn't spend a dime on micro transactions, don't really know what people were flipping out over tbh. Game was plenty easy enough to progress without them.

@ThanosReXXX cool, thanks

I liked the cel-shaded racing game on GameCube. and NFS Underground.
@redd214 I've never had an issue with micros in NFS, either. I got tooons of loot just doing races.

What they're "flipping out" about is the clear trend of requiring micro-transactions to progress without an insane grind. Star Wars Battlefront 2 was the writing on the wall, with the last Need for Speed game being the counter signature. Oh sure, EA has now patched SW Battlefront 2 to fix progression into a state it should have been in to begin with. But look how long it took them to do that, and how much of a stink the public and Disney had to raise for this to (eventually) happen.

Thus my worry that the next Need for Speed will require micro-transactions if you want to win races.

Like I said I 100 percented the game in about 25 hours without micro transactions. Would hardly call that an insane grind.

@FaeKnight But, it wasn't a grind at all in NFS to get great stuff. I never once bought a thing and won races consistently. The parts you get just from doing races and challenges gives you plenty. There was never a point that I thought I was doing something wrong or hitting an unreasonable difficulty wall. I admit, that's just my experience, which may be tainted since I've played all of the franchise.

I believe that game came out during the big Battlefront kerfluffle, so EA toned things down on the micro-transaction front. But they have stated many times that they see video games as a "Games as Service" where you have to constantly pay money if you want to keep playing and doing well.
