I enjoy racing games despite not being into cars.

Lotus 2 - Atari ST
This was as close to Out Run as you could get at the time.
Fast, smooth, good graphics with differing environments every stage felt different and a great intro tune.

Sega Rally - Sega Saturn
In my opinion the greatest racing game EVER !
Just so slick to play the lack of content doesn't bother me the risk/reward of tight corner slides is fantastic.

Gran Turismo 3
The game that made me leave Sega and buy a PS3 I'd never played should a deep and lengthy racing game.

Daytona - Sega Saturn
Yeah the graphics suck balls but it still plays awesome and for me that's all that matters.

Virtua Racing Deluxe - 32x
The 32x doesn't get (or deserves) much love but Sega nailed it with this. Still supremely playable and in true Sega fashion the more you practice the more milliseconds you can shave off your time.

Out Run - Sega Saturn
Had to bring this one up probably my favourite Sprite based racer. Adrenaline inducing making a tight corner whilst dodging all the traffic is exhilarating.

I have never been a fan of strictly racing games, but I do like action racers.

Spy Hunter - probably some of my fondest memories the genre.

Road Blaster - Loved this game on the Atari Lynx, excellent on the NES.

Hydra - Another great Atari Lynx game.

Road Rash - Who doesnt like this game?

Super Mario Kart - You pretty much have to like this game.

RC Pro-AM - Just an all around fun game.

Honorable Mentions: Pole Position, Rad Racer, Mach Rider, Cruisen USA, Out Run, Cool Boarders, Excitebike.

Okay, I'm definitely not a race car fan by any means.

But I really really enjoyed Star Wars Episode 1 Pod Racer for the Dreamcast.

My next favorite and this will sound weird is Sega All Star Racing for the Wii U.

I've always been a big fan of Diddy Kong Racing for some reason. Just a fun, fun game.

A few that come to mind:
Virtua Racing (32X)
Sega Rally (Saturn)
Ridge Racer (PS1)
Crash Team Racing (PS1)

This might make a good Top 20 special.

OutRun 2 - Xbox

Fun, easy, beautiful to look at. I like my racing games highly unrealistic. I'm tired of earning licenses and tuning cars.
