Racing Games – 5 Best Games of 2022

Gran Turismo 7

  • Developer: Polyphony Digital
  • Release Date: March 4, 2022
  • Platforms: PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4

Grant Turismo 7 is a racing simulator game that is exclusive to the PlayStation platform. The franchise has been around 1997, with the first Gran Turismo releasing back then. With the Gran Turismo 7 (which is the eight mainline installment), we see an increase in graphical fidelity that really showcases the beauty of racing.

The game is essentially just a racing sim game, meaning that you get to experience what it’s like to be racing in official circuits that uses cars from famous brands like Ford, Ferrari, Porsche, and more. It is the perfect game for racing sim enthusiasts that want to dive in. But don’t worry, casual car enjoyers, because the game may have a competitive side, it also caters to those who are just interested in going fast.

F1 2022

  • Developer: Codemasters
  • Release Date: June 28, 2022
  • Platforms: PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One

Speaking of racing sim enthusiasts, if you are a huge fan of F1, then you should definitely check out F1 2022. This game released in June 28 this year, and it’s one of 2022’s best racing games because of how accurate it is to being an F1 racer, complete with your own team that basically manages everything. This game is essentially a racing game and a managing simulator game at the same time, and it’s awesome.

While some people may see the managing side of F1 2022 a bit of a chore, people should understand that it’s a big part of being an F1 racer, and this game is essentially marketed as the full experience (albeit maybe a little watered down to fully avoid the stress that comes with it) of being an F1 racer, which includes sponsorships, marketing meetings, training, the whole enchilada.

Forza Horizon 5

  • Developer: Playground Games
  • Release Date: November 1, 2021
  • Platforms: PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One

While Forza Horizon 5 may be a 2021 title, it is one of the most played racing games of 2022. The Forza franchise has quite a reputation in the racing game community, so even if the game is still a month short for 2022, the game is still extremely fun to play.

While not a full racing simulation, the game focuses and improves on the one gameplay factor that really matters in any racing game: the race. Racing in this game is extremely euphoric, as you can use any car and tune it to the best possible capabilities to win any race. Not to mention the hundreds of cars from different brands and time periods you can choose from. It’s racing heaven for car enthusiasts.

Need For Speed Unbound

  • Developer: Criterion Software
  • Release Date: November 29, 2022
  • Platforms: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PC

Need For Speed’s been around for a long time now, and it initially started out as a game called The Need for Speed (which may or may not have been titled after Top Gun’s Maverick’s iconic line) in 1994. Since then, Need For Speed has innovated itself into the franchise we know today, going from a normal racing game, to the stylish series today.

Need For Speed Unbound is a sequel to Need For Speed Heat, which focused on the neon light aesthetic (or Outrun, if you want to be specific). In Need For Speed Unbound, however, we switch from the Outrun aesthetic to the graffiti style art that you see on the walls in the streets. It’s your traditional Need For Speed game that you all know and love, just with a fresh coat of paint.

Asphalt 9 Legends

  • Developer: Gameloft
  • Release Date: July 25, 2018
  • Platforms: PC, iOS, Android, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One

There are a lot of games that you can play on consoles and on PC, and they are arguably the best places to experience racing games. But what happens if you don’t have a console or a PC? What if they are both broken, leaving you with nothing but your phone? Well, Asphalt 9 Legends is your go to game to get some racing.

The game is available on consoles like the Switch and the Xbox consoles, as well as PC, but the game originally released on mobile devices for iOS and Android. Despite it being a mobile game, the game does a good job in capturing how fast most cars go, and it is certainly a great game to have in your pocket to kill time.
