Your car needs only a dominoshooter attached to the roof.

I love this game, played it forever. But I am not gonna reinstall it.... If trackmania 2 comes out within the next year I might be ready to put a lot of time into doing some insane tracks! 
Oh and I am glad jeff completed one full curse... I was starting to get frustrated by the end watching.

I used to play the free one years ago with a couple of friends, some of the tracks absolutely nuts.

I hadn't seen any Trackmania since Sunrise.

Cher music in the toilet looking track...

I think it's great that Trackmania still exists and that it's basic package is free 'n all, but if I want to race for 1st place (on PC) I go for this game:

You might prefer other racing games (Forza, rFactor, GT...) - yet, when it comes to beating my own racing time, I like to play F1 2010. Reminds me of Crammond's Formula One Grand Prix. Watching Formula 1 Season 2011 on TV (preferably excellent BBC coverage) doesn't hurt neither. In fact, it helps me understand the real tracks and breaking points better etc. and motivates me to try harder. And for casual racing, there's always Dirt 2 and now Dirt 3 (for me). 
Again, Trackmania is nice - but if you have money and are willing to spend it, why spend it on a subpar, bad controlling, bad physics, bad graphics 10yr old game?

@Rox360 i have to say the the technical part is to drift right. I know what you mean, i also love small 180 turns and all that jazz, but its nothing compared to a long well times drift started off a jump. 
@patrick Nice up, i love that kind of tracks too. But ppl should note that they are made for only pressing forward, no steering. Its only for showing off from a track maker. I have tried to make one of them, i got 3 jumps in and gave up, they are mad hard and time consuming to make!

No, but I do believe in a thing called "love". Just listen to the rhythm of my heart!

#65 Posted by Warihay (513 posts) -

Had no idea what this was before watching but it looks awesome! Definitely raised my interest in Trackmania 2.

"Hey! I'm the first commentator on this Quick Look! Let me say the name of the other guy also commentating!"
"Is this a witty introduction? I'm the other guy, how are you doin', name of first guy who spoke?"
"Pretty good, second commentator! Here's some lame wordplay on the title of the game!"
"Sweet! And here's some lame wordplay of my own!"
And so on.

@guypussy: If that annoys you, why even come to GB?

I do love this game for no clear reason.
i'll log in after months of not playing, spend 10 minutes shopping for a new car; then probably race only a few times.
But have a lot of fun doing it.
Then I'll make a quick track and uninstall it.

#72 Posted by EternalHaV0C (74 posts) -

Awesome game.

#73 Posted by Sarumarine (2441 posts) -

Heh heh, some of those tracks look like the Super Meat Boy of racing stunt puzzle whatever.

Trackmania is a weird game, but it looks awesome.

#74 Posted by drag (1206 posts) -

most appropriate use of the word -mania in a game's title

Cause it's fucking insane, and I want to see the developers make more so the community can continue to create crazy shit with it.

@guypussy: then leave.

Trackmania it's been a while since i've played one of these.

#86 Posted by DallyDoll (184 posts) -

This made me laugh so hard.
#87 Posted by countinhallways (630 posts) -

This game is pure fun.

#88 Posted by momspubis (19 posts) -

TrackMania is one of only two games I've ever paid $50 for and it was worth every penny. Arcade racing perfection.

#89 Posted by Soulblitz (374 posts) -

This game is so fucking good.

#90 Posted by Roomrunner (927 posts) -

That French pop song was awesome.

#91 Posted by Grayfox34 (77 posts) -

This was amazing.

#92 Posted by m0rdr3d (472 posts) -

Why are there badass games like this--that even have free versions--that I've never really heard of?  Why aren't games like these trumpeted from the rooftops?  My fellow gamers are asleep at the controls.
#93 Posted by Bass (706 posts) -

@Kovski: If you had watched you would realize that Jeff has been playing this game off and on for the past couple of years. He's not just now coming into contact with it.

#94 Posted by Hamst3r (4796 posts) -

I love Trackmania.

#95 Posted by wallacewells78 (3 posts) -

Do you believe in life after love?

#96 Posted by AjayRaz (12637 posts) -

probably won't watch it, but you gotta apperciate the love for Trackmania. it's one of my favorite racing game franchises. still occasionally go online to play some ridiculous ass tracks 

#97 Posted by Chadster (334 posts) -

I really don't think I'm strong enough.

I've been a huuuuuge fan of Trackmania ever since I mistakenly downloaded the demo for the first game thinking it was one of Konami's Bemani rhythm games back in 2003 (which, yeah, 20/20 hindsight, but in a world where Beatmania, Drummania and Keyboardmania were all real things, it didn't seem that dumb at the time!)

I will always, always love this series.
