Need for Speed Turns 20 Years Old

Can you believe that Need for Speed is 20 years old this year? I don’t know about you, but that makes me feel positively ancient. To celebrate this momentous achievement, EA have posted this lovely little retrospective video which you can see below.

As a pretty big petrol head, I personally tend to prefer more realistic driving sims these days, but I certainly have my fair share of great Need for Speed memories too. My fondest and earliest memory of the series would have to be playing 1998’s Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit back on the original PlayStation with a bunch of buddies. I had such a blast with this game and judging by some YouTube videos it hasn’t aged too badly at all! I’m also currently enjoying Need for Speed Rivals on PS4 at the moment and can’t wait to see where EA takes the franchise next.

Let us know your best memories of the franchise in the comments below or on facebook and twitter.
