Multiplayer is all about challenging the world online and showcasing your skills. It has clouded the fun that you get when you sit on the couch to play racing games and its really a shame.
Anyone who has jostled with their friend while screaming around the last lap on Super Mario Kart or Gran Turismo will surely know what we’re on about here, and we’d love to see some of you Liftsharers getting together to host your own racing sessions in the name of staying social.
Bearing that in mind, here is the top 5 racing video games that you can play your friends at the comfort of your home.
- Split/Second: Velocity
Racers in this game tear around inner city tracks while they detonate bombs to clear their way. If your friend overtakes you, you need not worry. Collapse a crane on their bonnet to get sweet revenge. You can also trigger controlled explosives to drop a whole building on them! This game is a brilliant one and is fun to play with friends.
- Road Rash 2
The main target of Road Rash 2 is to motivate the lift sharers who hit the road and break the law. This is not definitely a game that you would let the young to play.
- Micro Machines 2: Turbo Tournament
During you childhood, if you were not standing barefooted on the Micro Machines then you were racing across the kitchen worktop. Videogame tie-ins of the cherished toy line were inevitable, and this classic from Codemasters offered a four player mode that saw mini racers barrelling across household stages like the billiards table, garage floor and even the rim of a perilous bathtub. Check this out if you have a retro Mega Drive or SNES console.
- Burnout 3: Takedown
This is for the players that like fast and energy bursting games. There is the split screen mode that makes is ideal for friends to get together in a video game. You also get the crash junction mode that 8 players can play and see you mass pile cash.
- Super Mario Kart
This 1992 racer debuted on the Super Nintendo and spawned a karting craze in the games industry. All of the company’s stars were there speeding around familiar locations from the Mario Bros. canon, along with some new additions. It boasts simple split-screen gameplay that has yet to be beaten to this day, and an intense battle mode for two players. This year’s Mario Kart 8 on Wii U has continued the series in fine form and is well worth a look.
