Forza Puts the Entire History of Racing Games Into One Epic Trailer

Watch the evolution of racing 40 years in the making. 

Racing video games have been around for years, and Microsoft is celebrating them with its latest trailer for Forza Motorsport 6. The “Legacy” clip is 90 seconds of retro racing, where games like 1982’s Pole Position and 1993’s Ridge Racer are given sweet nods in this montage.

Watch some of Forza’s most gorgeous cars zip through tunnels and through familiar tracks to the tune of Electric Six’s “Danger! High Voltage.”

“This is what we’ve been racing toward,” attests the video, referring to Forza Motorsport 6’s impending release on September 16th on Xbox One. It’s likely everyone out there looking to pick up Forza 6 won’t catch all the references, but it’s an awesome video nevertheless, and we’d love to see other games taking this approach with promotional clips more often.
