Forza fan pays tribute to iconic racing games in Forza Horizon 3

Martin Bigg On January 10, 2017

Everyone has their favourite racing games series, from old-school arcade racers like OutRun, Burnout and Project Gotham, to serious simulations such as Assetto Corsa, Project CARS and iRacing. Sadly, many of these fabled franchises have since retired: we haven’t seen a new release from some of those aforementioned series at least a decade. So one passionate player decided to revive them in the ever-popular Forza Horizon 3. As community creations go, this might just be the best use of a racing game photo mode we’ve ever seen.

The inventive in-game shots taken by talented Imgur user EYuiS do a commendable job capturing the essence of each francise, with clever use of locations, liveries, filters, game logos and camera angles. The selection of screens also act as a nostalgic trip reminding you of some of the racing game greats that deserve a current-gen remake, from Burnout 3: Takedown and Need for Seed: Most Wanted to Driver. Clearly, these were created by a true racing game fanatic, which we can certainly relate with. If you needed proof that Forza Horizon 3 is an amalgamation of classic arcade racers, this is it.

You can view the artist's efforts in the gallery below. Which is your favourite tribute and which racing game series would you like to see resurrected? Let us know in the comments below.
