I see you could have gotten Moto Racer 1, 2 & 3 for under $5. Now they are back up to $6 each for 1 & 2 and $10 for 3. Hope some people jumped on that. I was too late.

I was always partial to the Microsoft series from 20 years ago:

Motocross Madness ( 1998 )
Motocross Madness 2 ( 2000 )

Monster Truck Madness ( 1996 )
Monster Truck Madness 2 ( 1999 )

Midtown Madness ( 1999 ) Chicago
Midtown Madness 2 ( 2000 ) London & San Francisco
Midtown Madness 3 ( 2003 ) Paris & Washington DC Xbox only

Sadly these are not on Steam or GoG.

Moto Racer @GOG (on sale right now!)

Good Old Games (GOG.com) is one of my absolute favorites in this day and age; I remember when they changed the name, making a big fuzz of it, lots of us thinking they was shutting down - these days I own 260 games on there and use the Galaxy client on a daily basis, not because it's required, but because I wish to show my support for their product(s) and I trust gog (unlike any other cloud-service,,, apart from Microsoft - I'm a naive consumer in that regard)

either which way, I digress - merely wishing to point out one of many fabulous games that which I am uncertain is available anywhere else - and if nothing else, I do believe that 'good old games' belong on gog and then I can play mah fancy 'new ones' on STEAM, or itch.io

Moto Racer, for those of you not familiar, is a (motorbike/motocross) racing game (woot?) from the time when Playstation ruled the Earth and as such it may feel like a port - but at the very least it's got D3D support and although rather short draw-distance at times, it keeps excellent speeds and has easy-to-learn intuitive controls, in that it's an arcade-racer, rather than a simulator of any kind

there are eight tracks and once you finish those you'll unlock 'mirrored' mode (and after that a 'pocket bike' mode), which does exactly what the name implies

the game itself feels very reminiscent of Need for Speed II, which was a contemporary contender, this being the 'golden days' of arcade-racers, due to the aforementioned Playstation having hit the market, all the while computers were pushing the polygons beyond new limits and titles such as Virtua Racer had set the standards a couple of years earlier (in terms of polygons +speed)

it's a very fast-paced racer and can be a bit tricky to control with keyboard; personally I'm using my Logitech Extreme 3D Pro joystick, because I like the analogue input and I prefer playing... a lot of games, with joystick

it's a smooth ride once you figure out which bike goes well with which track, got some nice 90s music and a commentator that'll immediately get stuck in your head; simply due to how naturally he fits into the gameplay

sound-effects and music overall may be scarce (no orchestra here), but they get the job done and give an overall sense of racing motorized vehicles - the graphics aren't going to blow anyone away, but the sense of speed is on-par with that of Need for Speed II: SE and that makes it for an incredibly thrilling ride, whether you're riding along a coast-line at top-speed, or flying over the goal-line on top of 'The Great Wall' with your motocross, Moto Racer is bound to give you at least a couple of hours with fast-paced, intense racing - and with three different skill-settings, you're bound to find one that suits you, as you learn to master the controls and curves of the game

in my opinion, having played Moto Racer since it was first released back in 1997, this is one of the finest motorcycle -racing games available on any platform and one of the finest racing-games overall

well worth your moneys, time and attention.

GoG.com

Did you know GOG.com ( formerly Good Old Games ) is a digital distribution platform for video games and films. It is operated by GOG Sp. z o.o., a wholly owned subsidiary of CD Projekt based in Warsaw, Poland?

I love GoG. Currently I have 86 Games there, including many older classics and I even bought all the Stalker Games there because of the bonus content and no DRM. Since we have a STEAM thread and an EPIC Store thread, I thought we deserved a GoG thread.
