    Default Any gamers here?

    I'm after a fun racing game for my ageing PS3. Specifically something I can play for 10 minutes and put down, a driving equivalent of PES/FIFA really. I don't want to be an undercover cop doing missions, I don't want to drive around the hood looking for a throwdown, I don't want to spend an hour tuning my F1 car, I don't want a simulator that requires practice and skill, I don't want to spend more time decorating my car than driving it. I just want to blast round a track, making lots of noise and ideally smashing into the other cars.

    Anyone remember Destruction Derby? Now that was a game. And some of the early Need for Speed games before they went all chav-crazy and later tried to put GTA elements in it.

    Any recommendations?

    Blur, Split/Second and Motorstorm look like candidates for silly fun

    Motorstorm is frustrating after a while, Blur is average, not played Split/Second.

    Not a car racing game (Space simulator is how it put) , nor is it available for PS3 (or any PS). It will play on a reasonable PC/XBox. Elite: Dangerous has a CQC (Close Quarters Combat) mode which is as you describe. You also get the full game for when there's nout on TV.

    Need for speed: Rivals - fulfils that criteria.

    I've not bothered with the police mode, but the 'racer' mode is great for crashing around. You can get basic upgrades to make your car faster/grippier etc.

    LBP Karting is more like Mariokart, with the added bonus of a track design mode. Used to love spending weekends with the kids racing on each other's courses. Four player split screen too, which made it good family fun.

    I actually bought a GameCube over the summer principally for MK DD with mates. It's currently down south but I will have to pick it up... it does lose longevity playing solo though, and the randomness is VERY frustrating when playing AI rather than human opponents.
