Racing games provide a fun outlet for gamers to jump behind the wheels of a car that they would probably never drive in real life and fly around streets or tracks at high speeds. Some great racing games came out in 2013 and earlier this week we nominated five. Here is VGU’s and the reader’s poll winner for best racing title.

VGU’s Pick: Gran Turismo 6

Gran Turismo 6

This year might have been all about the next generation but the PlayStation-exclusive racing series decided to take some time before jumping to the PlayStation 4 and released a game on the PlayStation 3 instead. The result was an impressive racing sim that took full advantage of the power of the PlayStation 3.

Reader’s Choice: Gran Turismo 6

The readers chose the same game as the VGU staff for this category, as Gran Turismo 6 took 47.2% of the votes. Forza Motorsport 5 came in second with 27.8% of the votes, Need for Speed: Rivals came in third with 19.4%, and F1 2013 came in fourth with 5.6% of the vote.


That’s it for the best racing game category but VGU’s end of the year awards are far from over. Check out the winners from the other categories for this week and come back on Monday for a whole new slate of categories including Game of the Year.
