Get forza or gran turismo on a console. Thats your only option for a good racer.


Pretty much.
Codemasters titles come close, though. Too bad the handling's a little on the arcade side when compared to GT/Forza.

Why no indie games?


Probably because of the bad taste indie games are leaving in a lot of peoples' mouths these days.


I'd regard the games I mentioned as the pinnacle of PC racing, although iRacing is technically an indie I wouldn't necessarily categorise it as one, at least not in the way we perceive "indie" games.
If you want something more mainstream as others have mentioned you can't go too wrong with Codemasters simcade titles Grid:Autosport is due next month I believe.

Recent Codemasters titles aren't that great. DiRT is okay, the first being better, but the GRID series seems really weak to me, like NFS Carbon weak.

Oh I'm not saying anything against indie games, I know there are some really good ones out there. However there is a huge over saturation of them in the market and the good to bad ratio is downright depressing. That combined with most of them being released in alpha or pre-alpha (Greenlight), it tends to make one associate the title of "indie" with "buggy, unfinished shovelware" and it's easier to just avoid them altogether than it is to pick through and find the good ones.

Toca Race Driver 3, though that game is rather old by now... I remember having a lot of fun with it back in the day, and it was one of the last decent multi-discipline racing games I cna think of to come to PC.

The Dirt games are alright too, but only for the Rally racing as the other modes are rather bad.

Upcoming games include Next Car Game or Project Cars, that I'm aware of.

Also +1 for F1 2013, great game, very well polished and feels authentic... but damn it I suck at F1 racing and the game is challenging for sure!

Because the developer is ISI and according to the product page

http://imagespaceinc.com/products/

they also publish it. That's the textbook definition of an indie game. It doesn't matter that they previously made racing games for EA. rFactor 2 is indie.

So if DICE broke away from EA tomorrow and release Battlefield 5 themselves, it would be an indie game and DICE would become an indie dev?
