      I used to play it constantly on Sega Genesis. I didnt discover it until I got Sega-Channel... did anyone else have that available from their cable companies?

      There was a Playstation title called Road Rash 3D that allowed you to pretty much free roam. The race would start and you could just blow it off and go cruise around wherever the hell you wanted and the map was surprisingly large. Pretty cool

      Give it to Criterion games and let them do Burnout on Bikes for **** sake

      Well... I spent many nights playing Road Rash on my friends Sega Genesis. It was just sooooooooo good at the time. But to be honest, we fired up Road Rash on a Genesis about 2 years ago and it was pretty bad. I guess I'm spoiled by the better games of today, but it was hard to play.

      I loved Road Rash for PC when I was little.
      Hopefully if it comes out it will be a full game and not just an Arcade game for the 360.

      they should release Road Rash (the 3D0/Saturn version) on XBL Arcade and determine the market

      Man I miss Road Rash... I played the old Sega version a ton, and also the PS1 version. Games were sick. On today's consoles, you could make an insanely sweet road rash.

      My favorite:

      man, I was playing RR2 all night last night. I really can picture it as a current gen game. It's just SO MUCH FUN!

      It's a PERFECT IP for these days

      When i was part of the pitch for a new Road Rash a few years ago, the biggest problem was that UK publishing wouldnt support it, as bike gangs have a very very negative image in the UK market place (one of the UK partners suggested it would be similar to making a game about rapists).

      But that was 4 or 5 years ago, perhaps there is something in the works now.

      don't play with my emotions.

      curious... who has ever heard of UK bike gangs?

      I wish I could find my copy of Road Rash 3D.

      and as for a game about rapists... um...
      Rockstar does it...

      i remember playing this game a lot for Genesis back in the day. the game also was one of the first to feature real songs by bands and is what got me listening to Soundgarden back then.

      even a remade and retooled version for Xbox Live Arcade like Bionic Commando would be cool.

      I played the **** out of 3D though

      Dan Geisler (co-designer of Road Rash 1&2) might kickstart a new Roadrash if there's enough interest - http://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comme...rfaced/c8ubv17

      i was just talking to a buddy about how awesome this game was, which got us looking up youtube videos of people playing it. (vw nerd: spotted many mk2 golfs in traffic)

      i wasted a lot of time playing that on ps1. great game

      Killed many hours playing Road Rash on my friend's Sega Genesis! Found a PS1 copy at a used game store a few years ago and play it on my PS3 from time to time. Definitely brings back some fond memories. I would definitely buy it if they remake this for current consoles/PC as long as they keep the old-school gameplay the same.
