Project Gotham Racing
Before we saw the likes of Forza, first there was Project Gotham Racing. Project Gotham Racing was definitely the most beautiful racing game of its time and the first to make style points a requirement to actually win each race. The title was easily one of the most successful franchises Microsoft ever touted and it quickly become the second best selling game for the original Xbox after Halo: Combat Evolved.
Not only that, but the series literally broke multiple Guinness World Records. In 2008, the original Project Gotham Racing title held the record for “Most Complex Car Models in a Racing Game” and the “Most Complex Race Environments.” With beautiful maps, stunning cars, authentic sounds and an incredibly detailed and intricate racing experience, Project Gotham Racing still stands as one of the most solid racing games of all time. Just imagine how mind blowing a Project Gotham Racing 5 could really be.
