Episode 15: Arcade Racers

Love them or loathe them, racing sims are one of the most popular genres when it comes to gaming. The racing stable of a console can make or break it, and there are some simply stunning examples of vehicular competition going all the way back to the very first days of video gaming.

In this latest episode of Maximum Power Up, Phil, Chris and Tom take a look at some of the most important and defining arcade racers to grace both coin-op cabinets and the home systems. The team discuss their earliest memories of arcade-style racers with Pole position and Rad Mobile, and then take a journey through the 80s, 90s and 2000s reminiscing about the most memorable racers from the last 30 years. Sega Rally, Ridge Racer, Burning Road, The Need For Speed and Burnin’ Rubber on the lowly Amstrad CPC all get a mention, so buckle up and get ready to start your engines with episode of the Maximum Power Up podcast.
