Not to be a manchild, but the last decent game from the series was Rivals in 2013 IMO. Everything after that has been a high effort cash grab

I stopped buying race car games after grinding was required to unlock things, and money required to change the color of my car or the decals. A shame, I miss the genre.

Personally for me, after learning that racing vs AI is just a wasted rubberbanding fake achievement.

I hope the driving physics is good in this one , something like NFS SHIFT 2.
I think people hated the Shift series tbh. It was too hardcore for the casual crowd but too arcady and not to mention floaty/boat car physics (that some say succeeded to SMS's latter games Project CARS) for the sim crowd.

It was. They try to make it a separate premium brand like the Lexus to the Toyota. The first car, Polestar 1 is a 600 horsepower hybrid luxury car.

Need for Speed Underground 3 or one of the older remastered would sell like hot cakes, but EA does not listen.
A remaster of the 2005's Most Wanted would be hella great :toast:

I loved "Most Wanted", which had a story a characters. But I have to admit it was pretty generic and only a reason to race.
For me NFS ended after Hot Pursuit 2 (from 2002). Even that one was already bad with no steering wheel support - no FF and the input lag as huge as 1s or more when using a wheel, so I had to stick to the keyboard. However it still had the spirit of "older brothers", so the game was kinda fun. Then Underground came and...uh...

I wonder, when EA will understand, that a racing game does not need story, characters etc... What it needs is nice, interesting tracks, lots of cars to choose from and a good (but still arcade) driving physics.
Speak for yourself. I enjoy story and characters in NFS2015 very much, it's a perfect complement to original Underground where all characters are faceless. NFS is one of very few good arcade racers nowadays when other franchises aim for realistic simulation. I used to like DiRT 1-3 because they are like 30% arcade, but now Codemaster goes all out simulation with DiRT Rally I simply can't enjoy it, since I'm a casual driver with no steering wheel. NFS is pretty much the only game I can sit back and enjoy arcade feel, Fast & Furious like story and cool characters without overthinking what camshaft I should install.

Polestar is Volvo's separate brand for premium electric cars only. Polestar 1 costs something like 150 000 EUR. Now there is Polestar 2, but I don't the price. It's a like a spin off of Volvo :) I don't typically see this car as emblem for racing, but hey it generates 600 HP.

On topic, I also disagree, that racing game doesn't need a story. I enjoy the more "un-realistic" handling in racing games. Where you can enter on 5th in the corners and use the roadside protection? (don't how it's called) to take the turn. :)

I also vote for HD remake of Super Spy Hunter with the original sounds and OST. The OST is SO good. Rollcage already got a remake with GRIP.

I preordered Mirror's Edge Catalyst when it was coming out, and I still love that game hella lot. In fact that's the only game I've ever preordered :D

With your computer specs, check out Need for speed Porsche unlimited on the PC.
The game is an oldie, i think it came out in 2001.
NFS Porsche Unlimited - fabulous - loved that game at the time - and was the reason I bought a 911. Don't have it anymore, but I do wish NFS PU was updated. Doesnt need the "newest cars" but just updated in terms of tracks, graphics, online.

That game was the reason I almost bought a 968. The week I was going to buy it, the owner wrecked it. But looking back, I'm happy I didnt buy it. Every 968 owner I have talked too say the car is a money pit, much more than a 911. 15 years later I bought another money pit, a sailboat. Its a happy money pit.

Yeah that too. I discovered that playing well almost always made the last lap near impossible. Or I could trail the AI and then blow them away the final lap every time.

This is why I always preferred Colin McRae Rally series to all other racing games. You race a clock, the various times for each track set by human beings (with actual ghost cars to follow if you unlock that feature)

Whoever invented rubberband AI for racing games deserves a special hell, but for some asinine reason pretty much every single racing game since has copied it :(
