Best Racing Games on PS5

Best PS5 Racing Games

What are the best racing games on PS5? Video games have been around a long time, but humanity’s love of cars goes back much, much further. It’s no wonder that racing games have been part of the gaming landscape since the very start, with the compulsion to go fast and clock the quickest times still just as strong to this day.

Of course, racing games come in many shapes and sizes, accounting for all kinds of tastes. Some love their racing to be as close to reality as possible, acting as simulations of the real act of driving. Gran Turismo 7 is the latest entry in perhaps the most famous sim racer series. These racing sims can often be associated with real world motorsports, such as WRC or Formula One.

On the other hand, there are some racing fans who enjoy more unrealistic driving experiences that take cars and accentuate their speed and control. Known as arcade racing games, referring to coin-op titles from back in the day, PS5 racing games of this ilk include Hot Wheels Unleashed and DIRT 5. Arcade racers tend to move faster, allow for generous drifting, and may even feature stunts or power-ups.
