The Burnout series of games is still remembered fondly by many fans, more than a decade later, because of its dedication to high-speed thrill racing and its elaborate, glorious crashes. Burnout Paradise takes the same sensibility and sets it in an open-world racing environment, allowing to explore a map full of cars and obstacles to smash, triggering different races and other activities as you go.
The Burnout franchise was never concerned with featuring authentic real-world car brands or intricate vehicle controls - instead the series featured elaborate crashing options, including the chance to "pancake" other racers by dropping down from higher elevations on top of them, and a speed boost system that specifically rewards risky driving, such as weaving through oncoming traffic. Burnout Paradise is a great game to jump in and out of alone or with friends online, and the Remastered collection comes with the Year of Paradise and Big Surf Island DLC packs included, so you have even more content to enjoy.
