Welcome to The Garage, a thread where fans of racing vidya can discuss their favourite arcade, sim, kart, and any other kinds of racing games (this is /vr/, so any PC/6th gen game up to 2007 goes!). If you’re looking for something new to play or are new to the genre ask other Anons for recommendations and remember to gear up and have fun.

The previous thread was TIMED OUT: >>8492068

>New here? Interested in a series to get started with? Check out these!
Dirt/Colin McRae
Gran Turismo
Mario Kart
Midnight Club
Midtown Madness
Need for Speed
Project Gotham Racing/Metropolis Street Racer
Ridge Racer
Sega Rally
Tokyo Xtreme Racer

Remember to bump, /vr/ has been faster as of late and threads get archived much quicker now. Don't be shy: ask questions, share experiences! If anyone has ideas for community events, speak up!

Thread challenge, set by Devil Z:
>What game?
Gran Turismo 3.
>Which mode?
Arcade Mode.

Any from A-Class.

>What's that?
A track and game is chosen and people can challenge for times on it.

I feel like Toca should be on that list, different weather conditions, particularly foggy rain and cars actually having working wipers blew my little shit's mind back in the day. Still enjoyed GT1 more but Toca was impressive also for having a dozen vehicles instead of just 6 at the same time. Good times.

I'll give GT3 challenge a try even though I'm not very good, recommended car?

>> No.8543675

The AI is good. In TOCA 2, some other drivers will react defensively if you try to overtake, forcing you to pick and choose the right moment. Combined with the conditions, you really have to think about these maneuvers.

>> No.8543681

I spent a lot more time with 1 but 2 did impress me by amount of different types of vehicles included and big circuits. It's a very massive game but it lacked atmosphere and style for me to enjoy it coming from Gran Turismo.

I remember mentioning this in a /vroom/ thread a few months back but if someone is well versed in differences and intricacies of the PS1 era F1 games, I'd love to hear pros and cons of games to pay attention to.

FTFY. Legit have no idea why it exists.
It's because those nips at Polyphony didn't have anything to show on PS4 in 2014, isn't it.
Pick the Corvette for fastest times and practice, practice, practice. You'll get really into it after a few laps.

I tried the vette last night but the thing understeers like a fucking tank. I mean I only gave it maybe 3 laps and called it a day, meaning I can certainly shave 4 or 5 seconds off, at least. Just wanted someone else to post theirs so that I can be motivated to fire up the ps2 and spend some time.

My favorite part about old GT games is buying an old used JDM beater and upgrading it with prize money.
There was an 80s game where you did the same with 60s murrican cars, called Street Rod. I wish there were more games like this.

>> No.8554064

In that case, I'm not sure, but I'd like to know too. Since GT3/GT4, it's harder to take your starter car, or at least an early car, through the majority of championships. You pretty much have to use a pre-built racing special to compete, especially since race modifying your own cars isn't an option.

Fired up GT3 for the first time in probably over a decade just for this. Did 2 laps in a few cars and then went back and grinded with whatever i was fastest in. Kept seething after getting loads of 1.33/34s with one mistake fucking me every time but got there eventually.
