Lunchtime Poll: Favorite Driving/Racing Game

Often when I tell people I don’t know how to drive, they tell me, “Practice with Mario Kart!” Ummmmmmmm.

That said, racing games are fun, if not realistic as a driving simulation. I usually win the first lap and then fail miserably for the rest of game time.

I prefer silly games like Mario Kart or Excitebots Trick Racing. No realism, just silly characters and powerups.

My husband prefers highly realistic games like the Forza Motorsport series. He wants the experience of customizing and driving a real car on real roads.

What racing or driving games do you enjoy? Also, why hasn’t there been a horseracing game ala Mario Kart or Forza? Wouldn’t that be fun?
