We have a criminally overlooked classic for you this week. Midnight Club: Los Angeles from Rockstar is one of the best open-world racers your hard-earned cash could buy. And now the complete edition is less than half the price of the RRP you'd be an eejit to miss it.
You get the photo-realistic backdrop of real L.A. to tear around in your custom built rides, from US muscle-cars to arrow-fast superbikes, as you try to become the king of the asphalt. You can even do some donuts outside the home of E3, the L.A. Convention Centre, if you're that way inclined. The incredible amount of customisation options means that you can can really stand out from the drab folk you meet online too. Oh, and you can even buy and sell the slick vehicles you see on the virtual roads, and have people rate your ride so make sure it looks great. A brown Ford Focus is never going to pull in the big bucks, is it?
If you're looking for a racer to while the hours with, then you won't get much more exciting than this. You can even initiate a cop chase by speeding away from him after they pull you over. That thrill never gets old.
