I've never been good on racing games, specially after playing them on Atari (Enduro) and Ayrton Senna's Super Monaco GP (Sega Master System). I remember being in a small game shop near my house (they have video games that you could play paying for the minutes) and I remember seeing that game with really vivid colors and amazing music, it was F-Zero. I asked the game shop owner if I could play a bit of that game, although I didn't like racing games, that one looked really awesome so I was curious to try myself and indeed was a marvelous experience. I was amazed by the speed, tricks and loops that the game had.
If you wanna just have fun, that game won't disappoint you.
