As part of VGG Racing Week, I decided to create a geeklist to commemorate my gaming past with regards to racing games.

I am obviously missing many of the more recent, popular racing games, but they are not my favored genre of videogame, so I have not sought them out.

I'm sure that I have missed many from my past, but it happens.

My first driving game (as far as I can remember). It used the paddle controller on the Atari 2600 game console. Very basic, but entertaining. There was always these certain curves that pretty much made everyone wipe out and go off course.

This is the first racing game for many people. It was extremely popular in the arcades and wasn't overly bad when ported to home consoles.

Awesome in the arcade. Plunked down many quarters playing this game. Made into many different ports throughout the years, most being pretty decent.

Oh yeah! Some Simpsons fun with different vehicles racing against the clock on many minigames.

Surprisingly, this is the only version of Mario Kart that I have ever played. Still love it! Great with four players.

Lots of timed events on your hoverboat. Maybe not an overlooked game nowadays, but it certainly was when it was released.
