I've always enjoyed car games, and ever since we got an Xbox 360 nearly 11 years ago, I've played through as many car games as I can get my hands on. Forza, Need For Speed, Driver: San Fransisco, I've played the lot. Throughout this time, I've made note of what I've liked, and what I haven't liked. This is a list of the 5 best car games to cure your COVID boredom. All these games are on sale as of the 11th of October, 2020. They could on console, tablet or phone, but they all have one thing in common: Cars.

I hope you enjoy.

4: Forza Horizon 4

Easily the most popular Xbox racing game series of all time, Forza has managed to merge open world racing, and track days, in a way few others have. My personal favourite Forza game is either Forza Horizon 3, or Forza Horizon 4. FH4 is set in the UK, and has over 450 cars built in. You can race your friends, or computers, and you can explore the UK in your own customized car. It could take years to explain, so I'll just say this: I definetly reccomend this game, although it is the most expensive one on this list. It is available on Xbox and PC.

3: The Crew 2

The sequel to the original hit game from Ubisoft, the Crew 2 takes map design and map size to a whole new level. The map is a scaled down version of the United States of America, and you can travel to any of your favourite cities, by Car, Plane, Bike or even Boat. As a result of the broad range of transports, the assortment of cars is limited, as the game needs to make space for the bikes and other vehicles, which can all be customized to your hearts desire. The game is available on the Xbox, PS4 and PC.

2: Need For Speed: Heat

The newest game on this list, Need For Speed: Heat, follows the street racing scene of the US, and allows you to race around the streets of Palm City. With Cops around every corner, you'll have to use your cunning to stay out of trouble. Whilst this game is less well known, don't let that fool you into thinking it's bad. It's not. It's available on Xbox, PS4 and PC.

1: Asphalt 8/9

The Asphalt series is arguably the most successful racing game on the mobile. It combines real world racing with arcade style powerups and driving. With console grade graphics and a large assortment of cars and bikes to choose from, the possibilites are endless, although I must admit there are very few opportunities to customize your vehicles, aside from paintjobs and power upgrades. The games are free, and are available on the Windows, IOS, Android and Nintendo Switch.

Do you agree with my choices? Do you have any other reccomendations?

  • Excellent article! I play Asphalt 8 and hope to get FH4

  • I spent most of quarantine playing Asphalt 9 on Switch, Assetto Corsa (some mod stuff and open world maps make it look amazing) and BeamNG.Drive (ultra-realistic physics sandbox car game on Steam, if you didn't know, highly recommend)

  • I loved asphalt 8 and was lucky i had practically finished the game when they updated it to have fusion coins and ruined multiplayer tuning and you couldn't get money without hacking or spending real money. Asphalt 9 is challenging and way more fun. I love Need for Speed Heat as well

  • How about beamng Drive or it's multiplayer mod?

    • I must say, I love beamng, but it’s more of a physics sim rather than a driving sim. Hope this makes sense

    • BeamNG.Drive has DRIVE in its name. The node physics make it excellent to just drive around West Coast because of it's ultra-realistic suspension system. It's not just a physics game, it's a driving game built on physics, with the most...
