The game footage from every rally game is focused on driving gameplay both in a 3rd person and 1st person view in different environments like snow, desert, forest, city roads .etc.

World rally championship from 1993 was my first rally game in the arcades.

I loved V-Rally back in the days, and the arcade take on rally in Dirt 2 and 3, too bad they didn't know how to continue that angle.

Shitty quality video with frame drops and stretched visuals and stuff for a bunch of these games. The vast majority of those are devolution as well since it includes total crap inbetween great releases, time isn't really a factor if something came later but still didn't hold a candle to earlier stuff 🤷‍♂️

Was that thumbnail a joke or meant to shock?

That game on the 1988 side is Sega Rally on the Sega Saturn, I'm not even sure that there was anything that could have run even that version of the game in real time back in 1988... This is from 1994.

Yeah it offended my gaming historian sensibilities as well. My 1988 gamer brain instantly knows racing games didn't look like that. Not to mention that Sega Rally is a) iconic as fuck and b) '90s as fuck.

It's possible that few of you know much about Richard Burns Rally (2004), but it still considered by many in the sim racing community to be the gold standard even today.

For people who have never experienced RBR before, it is often called the Demon's Souls of rally racing –if something goes wrong, it is always because of your poor judgement.
