Racing Game (also known as Race Game) is a genre of video game in either first-person or third-person perspective. Basically, the player participates in a racing competition with any type of vehicles (it could be land, water, air, or space vehicles). The competition could be in a realistic setting or entirely fantastical.


Did you know that the word racecar when read backwards, is still racecar? This is because the word is considered to be a palindrome—a word, number, or other sequence of characters that reads the same backward as forward. As interesting as being a palindrome, racecar as a motorsport is ranked among some of the most popular sports in the United States it is backed up by the emergence of virtual motorsport racing video games today. Atari, a game development company, takes pride in the development of the first racing game in the industry in 1973. Entitled Space Race, this game was built in a simple drag-racing concept that features an archaic black-and-white spaceship. Three years after, the genre has undergone series of development and Crashing Race was released as a game in arcades. Remember when you and your playmates would rush to the arcades and put coins in to play games? It really is nostalgic. According to the data presented by Statista, the genre of racing landed on the 6th place of the most played game genre in the United States in 2017, taking up a 6.4% part of the whole. This 2018, racing game is also among the top video game trends as published on Business Insider, with an upcoming race game landing on the 7th place.
