MC--I am also anxiously awaiting Blur--was a bit worried that I might be the only one! I like the idea of vehicle combat (like Twisted Metal II), and I dig Bizarre's games (I love the PGR series regardless of who talks crap about it).
And I also agree--Burnout Revenge is pretty tight. You don't really express what KINDS of racing you like. For simulation, you can't beat Forza. For arcade, I really like PGR, but they sure sell a lot of those NFS titles...
I never played Grid, but heard some good stuff about it.
That's a loaded question. Of all time, I'd probably say 10 Yard Fight on NES. Simply pathetic! Had it as a rental for one week; might have played it for 20 minutes. Very depressing for a young man pissing away his allowance.
On the 360? Hmmm...most of the first generation of sports titles were pretty awful: Madden 06 sucked the bag (XBOX version rocked), NBA 06, College Hoops 2k6--they were all crap.
Otherwise, I might have to say Avatar:The Last Airbender Burning Earth--it's a good thing that 1000 achievement came in the first 5 minutes of gameplay; I couldn't have made it through 10.
DOA Xtreme did suck. Chromehounds was bad (I wanted to like it so much!). Personally, I *DID* enjoy The Club. Sure, it was mindless and the graphics were a little wack, but I liked the run & gun style and the sort of PGR-meets-shooter feel of the game. It could have been executed better, but it provided more than an afternoon of fun for me.
