List Rules Games don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for PlayStation at some point.

If you owned a PlayStation at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few racing games in your collection. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best PlayStation racing games of all time. If driving fast cars is your thing, then get behind the wheel and try out some of these fantastic games. Playstation took gaming to a whole new level back in the day, and it released many of the great franchises we still play to this day, racing games included.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling racing games that were released for PlayStation. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. Games on this list include Pole Position and Grand Theft Auto. Vote for your favorite video games below, and feel free to add any that you think deserve to be on the list.
