Racing video games are a genre of video games that simulate the experience of driving or racing a vehicle. In these games, players typically control a vehicle and compete against other racers or against the clock to complete a course or reach the finish line.
Racing games can be categorized into several subgenres, including arcade-style racing games, simulation racing games, and kart racing games. Arcade-style racing games tend to have more forgiving physics and driving mechanics, while simulation racing games aim to provide a more realistic driving experience. Kart racing games are a subgenre that focuses on cartoonish, exaggerated physics and gameplay, often featuring power-ups and other items to help players gain an advantage.
Racing video games can feature a variety of vehicles, from cars and motorcycles to boats and planes. Many racing games also allow players to customize their vehicles with upgrades and modifications, providing a deeper level of gameplay and strategy.
Examples of popular racing video games include the Gran Turismo series, the Forza Motorsport series, the Mario Kart series, and the Need for Speed series. These games often have a range of game modes, including single-player campaigns, online multiplayer, and time trials.
