Need for Speed turns 20 today!
I know it's not our slice of cake when it comes to driving games but I still had fun playing it on the Gamecube when I was younger.

Tell some stories and give your opinions on the past NFS games!

Sweet article and video I found on speedhunters about it!

The past NFS games are awesome. I still have my Limited Edition copy of Carbon for the PC. Played Hot Pursuit 2 with my father all the time on the PS2 when I was younger.

I remember playing that Porsche NFS game, and NFS 3: Hot Pursuit for PS1.

NFS Hot Pursuit 2
NFS Carbon
NFS Underground
Most Wanted/Underground GBA
Prostreet

Was a hardcore fan back then, but nothing beats GT for nostalgia.

GT3 was my first PS2 game so nostalgia points for that one but GT4 was really the best one.

GT1 was my first ever racing game, but GT2 was incredible for the time it was released, especially with it being a PS1 game.

^Absolutely. And the AI may have been zombified, but it was damn quick.

The first need for speed game I played, was NFS2SE on the PC; awesome game.

Need for speed 2
Need for speed 3: hot pursuit
Need for speed 4: road challenge
Need for speed 5: Porsche unleashed (bought my first wheel because of this one, it was a microsoft sidewinder racing wheel)
Need for speed: hot pursuit 2
Need for speed underground 1 and 2
need for speed most wanted (loved this one, excellent game)
Need for speed carbon (hated this one, finished the story mode in less than 4 hours; glad I only rented this one at the time)

After how quick I beat carbon, I didn't really play need for speed again till NFS:World; even then I didn't really get into it. I do have these currently on pc via Origin and/or steam

need for speed shift 2 (bought recently to compare against project cars, since SMS where the devs charged with making shift/shift2; and the game engine from shift/shift 2 is used for project cars. I wanted to compare the handling physics between both games)
Need for speed hot pursuit 2010
Need for speed most wanted 2012
Need for speed rivals

I did have need for speed: the run on the 360, but I traded it in a while ago after I finished the story mode.

Im not so big on need for speed games like I used to be up till carbon came along, I feel that after the original Most wanted; things just went downhill with the franchise. I have been pleasantly surprised with the new most wanted and rivals though, the gameplay has started to pick up again, and is more in line with what need for speed games used to be like. My only real issue on the newer games, is lack of racing wheel support. My TX wheel will only just work in the newer most wanted, and wont work at all in rivals. hopefully wheel support will return to need for speed though, even though its an arcade game, it would benefit from its inclusion. Hell, I first used a racing wheel on arcade machines; so much fun playing ridge racer with a h-pattern shifter and clutch pedal with my friends in the arcades.
