Gaming car crashes through the ages

After a few hours playing your new racing game, sooner or later you will stop braking for corners (if you ever started), or even turn round and drive around the track the wrong way into the oncoming pack of cars. Why would such craziness take over an otherwise stable mind? Because crashing cars is fun. It's as simple as that. 

From the flashing screen and bouncing wheel of Super Monaco GP to the physics-fest of Burnout Paradise, the graphics may have changed, but the car-nage is still just as cool. Enjoy...

The best shunts and stunts of Burnout Paradise
Two and a half minutes of amazing footage



Consoles of the 1980s
Love your retro? Then get nostalgic with this little lot



Game music worth putting on your iPod
Seeing OutRun made you want to hear the tune, right?

    My only objection to this article it that I love cars. (And in NASCAR 08 you made my favorite racer go flying)
