80/80 (o.O.)

I've played & loved Burnout Paradise (PS3), Smash Cars (PSN/PS3), PixelJunk Racers Second Lap (PS3), Modnation Racers (PS3), LittleBigPlanet Karting (PS3), Sleeping Dogs (PS3) Need For Speed Hot Pursuit (GameCube), & WipeOut games (PS1, PS2, PSP, PS3) So...I thought I enjoyed all racing/driving games until I tried Superstar V8 Racing, Shift 2 Unleashed, & Ferrari Challenge.

Is there a type of driving game I've enjoyed or haven't enjoyed? I'm sorry I'm not tapped into the current lingo & this must sound like an idiotic question >.> I have read the terms arcade vs realistic but am not clear if either term could apply to my preferences.

Slightly old topic bump, but the games you like are very much the definition of arcade racers. The three you don't like would generally be classed as 'sim lite' or 'realistic racers', a tier below 'racing simulations' like iRacing or rFactor that don't often come to consoles.

Other than the suggestions already made, the Midnight Club series might appeal to you, they're generally quite difficult but MC:LA on PS3 / 360 was patched to be a lot easier than the others. I'd also suggest most NFS titles, with the exceptions of the Shift sub-series and Prostreet, and also the Test Drive series with the exception of Ferrari Racing Legends (a 'sim lite' that NFS Shift is based on) and Unlimited 2 (plain awful).

Yeah I'd suggest MotorStorm and Sonic All-Stars Racing.

It seems like you don't like more realistic games like Gran Turismo, Forza, and Shift, so you should probably stay away from them.

Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed and Ridge Racer (7..and others) are my favorite racing games, and I only play the arcade ones.
