Just remembred the Playstation version of Sports Car GT. An epic fail, disastrous gameplay, very bad graphics compared to Gran Turismo or Toca. How on earth Electronic Arts released a rubbish game like that ?
I'm gonna go with Night Driver on the Atari 2600.
Remember that one? You steered the track and not the car.
As for recent games, I'm not too sure. I don't buy many racing games, but the ones I do buy are rated better. GTR / GTR-2, for example.

I have a game called World Racing 2, while not meant to be a simulator it has a tons of cars that people have made for it. I have downloaded a lot of cars, but the physics seem too similar for all cars, wish that was different then I'd play it more, especially since the cockpit of every car is modeled pretty well.
Are there any phone app racing games that don't suck?
I have tried a few, and they all are way more akin to boating than driving.
I can only assume the basic program for a BAD driving game is very simple (and possibly even a "copy-paste" type program), so it is an easy app to make.
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
i don't know why i even bother reading jalopnik anymore, but here's a dull article about the best racing games from a racing driver:
i think the folks that run the GT Academy might disagree with his statement, especially Lucas Ordóñez who, after winning the competition, stood on the podium during Le Mans 2011.Originally Posted by Alex Lloyd
Gran Turismo is not the best, and certainly not the worst, but comparing console video games to pc sims isn't completely fair (in my opinion).
welcome to the layer cake
The out of the box performance of GT5 with wheel is very good. Much better FFB than say Shift or the Dirt series...
On PC those game can be tuned through setting(as well as other games on PC) to have better FFB, but for console I think PD got a lot of it right.
