What Old Car Video Game Is Still Good?

Illustration for article titled What Old Car Video Game Is Still Good?

Some car games simply do not get old.

Grand Prix Legends is still just as challenging and rewarding as it was five years ago, as it was ten years ago, as it was 17 years ago when it debuted. You drive 1967 Formula One cars, tweaking every possible suspension setup and wriggling your way through some fairly vicious differences in understeer and oversteer.


There’s a rumor that Jackie Stewart actually drove a test prototype for this game and declared it more difficult than actually piloting ‘67 F1 cars in real life.

If you can get GPL to work on your computer (there’s still a somewhat healthy community surrounding the game) you should absolutely try it out. And fail for a while until you sort of, almost, amazingly get things right.


What car game do you think never gets old?
