Whether you are a petrolhead in the physical space or in a virtual world. There's actually a tonne of skill to these games. With the need for quick reflexes and fast thumbs. We'll look at in our opinion the 6 best racing video games of all time. There are a few exemptions from this list which are:

- Games based in the future (No Wipeout or F-Zero).

- Kart based games (No Mario Kart)

- Only games released before 1990 (sorry Out Run).

- The games have to involve racing (No Rocket League)

So...Ready.Set.Go.
