Racing games, as far as I’m concerned are all the same – basically slightly interactive screen-savers – where steering left or right allows you to see different sections of the track. Or wall, as is usually the case with me. Were it up to me, Mario Kart 7 would take this category without the slightest hint of competition – but we do this thing by vote.
Here are the nominees for driving game:
Mario Kart 7
Driver: San Francisco
And the award goes to:
Winner: Forza 4
According to my colleagues, Forza 4 is inviting to new and old players alike, delivering fantastic visuals, great selection a and wholly immersive immersive driving experience. They’re also impressed by the game’s social and community autolog features, the beautiful Autovista mode and the inclusion of all that Top Gear content. “Forza Motorsport 4 is quite simply the best, most enjoyable driving game available this generation and easily one of the best driving game ever made,” Nick said of the game. I tried it once, but couldn’t fire a turtle shell at anybody…so I hardly agree.
Runner-Up: Dirt 3
