Racing games are much fun to play, but the market is so saturated that you often don’t know where to start. Beginners can be overwhelmed by the number of products, but never fear: we present you the best games for new players in this video!

Perfect games for Xbox and PlayStation

The advantage of the mass of racing games is clearly that there is a game for basically any type of player. Do you have a PC or and Xbox? Try out Forza Horizon 4! This gem of a video game takes you to the UK and offers a vast and open world that is filled with tons of fun stuff to do. More than 400 different cars are waiting for you to be unlocked and driven through changing seasons that have an impact on how you play the game.

GT Sport is your game if you own a PlayStation. Comparable to Horizon 4, GT Sport can be a great option for both beginners and advanced racers. With the right driving aids, it is perfectly playable with a controller – but as you get faster and more invested into racing, you can exchange your gamepad for a steering wheel and pedals set.

F1 2020: ideal for all racing fans

F1 2020 is the perfect blend of arcade and simulation. It features the most popular racing franchise and surely does justice to it, as it is a gem. The game from Codemasters is not a pinpoint simulation of the fastest racing cars out there, but delivers a fun experience that still demands a lot from its players. This game is the embodiment of the saying: easy to learn, hard to master.
