1995 Playstation (one/original) Road Rash

I pray to the cycle gods at least once a year that someone makes an updated version of this game. However the company that made it released it as free source on pc (without the higher quality sounds effects).

Please if any of you are game designers do me a solid and recreate this game with high quality graphics/sounds and perhaps some weather. Make the music user customizable and have a real pool hall for a proper schmooze.

It truly sucks that the only decent updated cycle games are all track related and mostly subpar.

Test Drive 2 had a pretty good cycle on the road you could pay to download. This is the closest thing I have seen to it done properly.

I recently went to an arcade and for the first time ever tried one of those motorcycle things u sit on to play. Even that game was terrible. It made me sad. (motogp)

List your favorite cycle game and reasons why.

Let me know if you are onboard with an updated Road Rash following the 1995 Teflon Mike version.

Test Drive Unlimited remains one of my favourite all time games. You can travel the entire island of Oahu (not just unfaithful recreations like in other games) in an extremely expansive variety of cars and motorcycles. A full trip around the map was like 220 miles. To this day I haven't played a game with a map that huge. Aside from the map, the magic of the game was playing online. It was the first (and to me, the only) mmo racing game with 80 players per server. It wasn't uncommon to get into 30+ car/bike drag races down the Interstate.

The sequel improved on the physics engine and made offroading possible, but the vehicle list and bugs were so bad I can see why it never got a third entry.

Looks like the new owner of the TDU franchise has been sitting on it for a few years. However, as of October 2018 there was an announcement that they were going to continue to develop games and using their franchises, including TDU. They basically came as close as you can get to confirming a TDU 3. They still have members from the original dev team so hopefully the new one will be as innovative as the original and without the pitfalls of the second.

Have you checked out Road Redemption? It's pretty much a spiritual successor to Road Rash.

although it's marketed that way the games have nothing good in common.

Road Rash has basic things liking showing your speedometer, ability to crash/lowside, racing.

Road Redmption has guys yanking signs out of the ground while riding, guns, crashing head first into a car and barely being bothered, no speedometer.

saying they are alike is like saying a goldfish is like a shark....i mean yes they are both fish but...

I had a lot of hope on Road Redmption while it was being made. They really butchered the game.

I'd love to see a high quality cycle game with street racing, melee combat, a cycle control panel, lowside/highside, wind influence, weather influence, road obstacles, a high sense of speed is important, rider customization. Having a physics engine that shows 200 mph turtle slow ruins a game. Road redemption also suffers from a slower physics engine.

i guess what im trying to say is road rash does a good job of having some level of realism. Road redemption is like a cheap arcade game with updated graphics.

When it comes to riding, beer and sex, I prefer the real thing.
Why would I play a game when the real thing exists.

UK
My thinking exactly, but you said it first.
I've never had much interest in video games.
I'll wait 'til the snow melts so I can get on the road again.

well...i mean you can hit other riders with bats while racing through midtown traffic in real life, but I think the real world consequences are slightly worse than resetting your game.

Nah man. Why would I play games like Hitman when I can just assassinate people in real life?

Never heard of it. But at 57 I'm probably not the target market!

Pong, Frogger, PacMan, missile defense, some 5.4 inch DOS games and Doom:surprise:
