It’s no surprise that Mario Kart tops our list as the best racer of 2014, as flashy HD visuals simply can’t hold a candle to the cartoonish yet insanely fun times awaiting you inside Nintendo’s heavy hitter. Even with it being the eighth iteration in the series, this old standard has definitely aged well. The power-ups, courses, characters and karts are all still here and remain as entertaining and addictive as ever.

Forza Horizon 2

With its sleek photorealistic backdrops, smooth driving physics and stellar car roster (clocking in at over 200+); you’ve got a motor enthusiast's dream come true right here. The DLC has been pretty free-flowing from the developer since its launch, so that’s also a big plus.
