No. 41: Burnout Paradise – 100 Greatest Games Ever
Burnout has consistently been the most entertaining racing game around. Burnout Paradise takes racing one step further and gives players boosts for reckless driving and slow-motion footage of crashes that are almost poetic in their destruction.
While Burnout Paradise lost the famed Crash mode from previous iterations, it gave us a massive open world to explore. Driving around looking for signs to hit and jumps to take is fun but nearly every intersection has an event to attempt. Playing online it's even better, allowing groups of people to work together to finish goals. Updates to the game included motorcycles and new areas to explore making this a beast of a racing game.
