My Top 20 Retro Driving/Racing Games



Hi guys! Here are my top 20 retro driving/racing games.

Only games from the sixth generation or earlier are allowed, and no games that have a driving element but driving isn’t the sole gameplay aspect. There were so many to choose from, but I think that these are the twenty that influenced me the most over the years.
