My first racing game was Formula 1 ’99 on the PS1. I played it quite a lot, though I wasn’t great at it. I got F1 2000 after that and 2001, both for the PS1 again. I also had Toca Touring Cars, which was hilarious, given that you can unlock a Tank and drive on a lava track.
Didn’t get another F1 game until 2005, which then led to me getting F1 ’06, F1 Championship Edition, F1 2010, 2011 and 2012 :P
Ahh, memories :)
