    I just had a great idea: A racing game with all the famous fictional cars. Imagine racing as The Batmobile, KITT, The General Lee, Mach 5, etc.

    Sounds like a licensing nightmare.

    I think unless a little twist to the car game formula is made, like a Rocket League through PS plus, and everyone has access to it, then no car game will be big.

    Until VR is mainstream.

    Need for Speed killed the arcade racing game market by flooding it with quality titles. Only thing left are racing simulators. An the costs involved with participating in racing simulators is currently ridiculous.

    Were weight and horsepower even defined for these famous cars?

    What about 007 cars? John Wick's car? Magnum PI's Ferrari 308? Columbo's piece of shit old car? Scooby Doo's Mystery van?

    Forza Horizon 4 has the 007 cars, even the submarine Esprit. And since Forza 6 or Forza Horizon 2 they have Hot Wheels and Fast and Furious.

    People often rage because they are DLC and are pretty good in game.

    How about a Speed Racer game that is really good? I think a racing game that is less grounded to reality has more potential for cross-over appeal; it doesn't have to be the Speed Racer IP either just something like MarioKart but the cartoon factor dialed back a bit like Rocket League maybe.

    It just seems weird that there is no middle ground between MarioKart and hyper-realistic simulators

    Need for Speed would be perfect for that, but they can't make a good game since NFS Most Wanted from 2005.

    You consider Forza a simulator?
    Maybe try the Grid series instead
