Have you met our lord and savior the NeGcon?


I can't remember what year I played this but I beat it and it's one of the two racing games I have played more than 5 minutes. No hate to the genre though. Also, masterpiece.


It's really neat how the story changes depending on your difficulty and it allows for a nice feeling of progression when you go from easy to normal to hard. The stories aren't super in-depth or anything but they're surprisingly nice for what amounts to just several short conversations and an epilogue. It is a shame the tracks stay the same across difficulties though. The arcadey racing is pretty good and there's a nice sense of speed. The tracks have great atmosphere with nice visual designs despite the PS1 hardware's limitations and the soundtrack is phenomenal.
