I haven't been to arcades since the pandemic I'll try also add a video of arcades you've tried thumbs up oh I thought it was arcade It's on consoles only add it to other Thread , hugs.

Oh my bad. So racing at the arcades. Unfortunately where I live very few of the arcades remain. I only see some arcade games at the cinemas. Wangan midnight is really popular it's like the only racing arcade game here and that's the only racing game I play. My all time favourite is Daytona usa. Played that after school and on weekends with all my friends 8 player on advanced mode

I edited my OP title I wasn't specific :)



Guess which version of Hatsune Miku this is? She has my Birth stone color turqoise in her eyes, And I'm most honest Sega Saturn lover alltime.Picture far right is Sega first Real Mascot. Represents my birth animal the helpful Bunny want you to find his name.My ruling Planet is Saturn if connect the Birth month I was born and year.

It's been so long ago, my favorite was Lotus Turbo Challenge on the Amiga 500. We played that in split screen on a daily basis


It all started for me with Hyper Rally on the MSX


Actually it started with Turbo Outrun in the arcade.


I didn't play Outrun until later on PC


Where my sim racing addiction started with Indianapolis 500


The Need for speed series got my attention on PC

Then got really good later on Playstation

Test Drive was fun as well


And the first Gran Prix Circuit


Later Crazy Taxi became a big favorite


Before Burnout stole the show

When arcade racing was still hard, touch a car and reset.

It's probably why arcade racers don't give me many thrills anymore. There is so little risk, you can knock everyone out of the way, drive through everything hardly slowing down. Even a head on collision with a truck, ehh no problem, just rewind.

Oops, was Crazy Taxi ever in the arcades, I guess only (Turbo) Outrun counts.

Yep it counts. Crazy taxi would have been my favorite!


Arcades were taken over by slot machines when I became a teenager, so never really had a lot of time in them. Still enough to make it to the end in Turbo Outrun on one coin.

Good list although Crazy Taxi arcade is driver game not a racing game , I did play Crazy Taxi in arcades in 2012 in Los Angeles loved it also there is a console game like it called simpsons road rage on PS2 and other games. Great list

Crazy Taxi is great because it doesn't waste any time. Obviously because of its arcade roots, yet the flow is addictive. Forza Horizon has a few taxi mission, yet there it's blah blah blah, loading screen, blah blah blah, drive to client, loading screen, blah, blah, blah, loading screen, deliver client, blah, blah, blah, loading screen. Drive to the next mission. After one, I'm done. Crazy taxi is a rush, one more go, try again. That's what defines arcade games.

A modern crazy taxi would be great. Photogrammetry is nearly good enough to make it a cloud game with real world data. Any big city in the world, all the meta data is there. Businesses could even sponsor the game by getting their locations selected more often. Online multiplayer, see all the other crazy taxis darting around. Play in your own city where you know the way, no gps mode for time bonus etc.

Agree a Modern Crazy Taxi would be great , including Online Multiplayer like you said .
