Top Racing Games of 2014

2014 saw lots of cars on the roads all over the world. They drove around a lot, took people to places, and at times probably went quite fast. You may have even driven one of these cars. Perhaps you picked up a cheap knockabout to trundle to and from the shops, or maybe you splurged on a fancy Porsche to symbolise your incredibly high standing in society. Either way, you drove a car, and if you like racing games that’s probably something you enjoyed.

But what of the world of racing video games? Did it provide us with some excellent games or were they all as disappointing as driving to a petting zoo to find it’s closed due to swine flu. Or were they all too busy trying to one up each other by including the latest, greatest, fastest, most expensive super cars? Check out our list of the top racing games of 2014 to see where your favourites are.
