Your first F1 game

Recommended Posts

Ayrton senna's super Monaco grand Prix 2 on the megadrive.

The best F1 game I ever played was Geoff Crammond grand Prix 4. If you never played it you don't know what you missed. Was leagues ahead of something like F1 97

Concur 👍. Geoff Crammond and his F1 Games were years ahead of his time. His games really got me hooked into F1.

The only problem I had with Grand Prix 4 back then, was that the game sucked every ounce of power out of my computer, and I had to play on "Low" graphics (get rid of extra track effects like grandstands, trees, spectators etc. So I only had cars on a track) to get it to work properly. I still loved it though.

PS: I just remembered that I had to use the Keyboard to drive the F1 car 😁

Mine was  GP2 and then GP4
No F1 Game ever matched to these both.

Look at the possibilites of car failures in GP2 ..  amazing!

Well, what you missed for the first few months was an incredibly buggy game, even by Codemasters standards. Took them about 6 months to patch out the worst of them, but it was really the modding community that kept it playable after that.

Formula 1 for the original PlayStation. I had bought a football game that disappointed me and exchanged it for Formula 1, I don't really remember why as I wasn't an F1 fan at the time. This game turned me into one, though.

I was gonna say it was F1 2002 on the PS2 but I remember I had this gem of a game for the Mega Drive before that!

Yeah that is so true. I remember having just about every season modded from 94 all the way up to 2007 I think. All the tracks. the performance matched how the cars did at each track, correct drivers were swapped in and out at the correct races. It was just far superior in most ways Altho game modes were obviously limited to what we have these days.

Geoff Crammond Grand Prix, the first game, on Amiga. Was my first coop experience too after a fashion (before Sensible Soccer!). Basically me and a friend would race full length races taking it in turns to race. Not sure how it worked as was so long ago but I'm sure you could let the ai drive for you when you pitted or vice versa so we'd switch cars and drive 10 or so laps each time before switching. It's possible we took it in turns on the same car but I doubt it as we were so competitive! 

I used the classic amiga joystick to drive while my friend insisted on using the keyboard.
