List RulesGames part of the Need for Speed series.

One of the greatest things about the best Need for Speed games is that they let you virtually drive cars you'll probably never get close enough to touch. Supercars from brands such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, Bugatti, and the like. Of course, they also feature more "down to Earth" makes such as Ford and Toyota--mostly as tutorial and early game cars of course. So which of the Need for Speed games are the best?

Fans have voted for their favorite Need for Speed games of all time, across all consoles from the very first game. From the franchise's beginning, the racing physics have always been more arcade-like than franchises such as Gran Turismo or Forza. But that's what has always made the NFS franchise more fun and approachable.

Need for Speed is one of the most beloved racing franchises of all time, with all-star hits such as Need for Speed: Underground 2 and Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed. In fact, Need for Speed: Underground 2 arguably belongs on the list for one of the best games of all time. It's just too bad the sequels weren't reviewed as well.

But really, who cares about reviews? If you're wondering what are the greatest Need for Speed games of all time, why not put your trust in other gamers? So vote for what you think are the best Need for Speed games below and add any you feel are missing.
