Need for Speed retrospective

How Need for Speed became the model for racing games

Need for Speed has been going strong for well over a decade, especially since finding mass popularity on PS2. You%26rsquo;re no doubt familiar with the pimped-out, hip-hopping, street-savvy Need for Speed games of today, but do you remember it before it turned cool? There was a time when modding only went as far choosing manual or automatic gears.

Fasten your seat belt; it could be a bumpy ride.
