Favorite use of Trucks in a Non-Truck-Based Game

#1 Posted by admachina (188 posts) -

Now that Giant Bomb is into trucks, I'm interested in how trucks have been creatively used in games.

I really liked the use of trucks as a separate racing class in Need for Speed Underground 2

@Sooty: Big Rigs counts. Big Rigs is a game about love.

And breaking reality. Can't forget that one.

I enjoyed using them as a method of slamming into sports cars during Driver: San Francisco. But Big Rigs wins for me, as well. That was a game of love, passion, and man's fervent need for more speed in reverse.

I agree. The greatest non-truck-game-truck was in the Dreamcast classic Toy Commander. I think there was a truck in there somewhere.

Running people over is insanely satisfying in GTA IV regardless of vehicle. So that.

I like taking Semi and going on a rampage in any game.

Also the Warthog, if that counts.

In Freedom Force strong characters can pick up heavy objects and throw them at enemies. Trucks were amongst these, and were always one of my personal favourites to use as a projectile.

Burnout Revenge. Mostly the crash mode.

Red Faction: Guerrilla for sure.

  1. Steal a big EDF truck
  2. Smash through EDF base
  3. Repeat until truck explodes
  4. Find another truck

When I first read the title I thought that it was a result of a Giant Bomb Thread Generator.

I'll have to go with Split/Second.
