Racing games have been a staple for Xbox players for more time than anyone cares to remember. And as time has passed, the games have evolved to be more realistic, and the visuals are out of this world on the Xbox Series X. So, in 2022, here are the games that you should be playing if you’re an Xbox owner.

F1 2022

F1 2022 is undoubtedly the best racing game available to play on the Xbox right now, especially for Formula 1 fans. Recently, the game has become increasingly popular since EA Sports got involved in its creation. And the realism and all-new physics system, which is stunningly responsive, put this title in a league of its own. Some will suggest that the game’s rise to the top has been integral in the growth of the sport too.

Best, Xbox, Racing Games, 2022

F1 Manager 2022

Not strictly an out-and-out racing game, we have to include F1 Manager 2022 on this list because it brings an entirely different element to the table for Xbox gamers to enjoy. In F1 Manager 2022, rather than being the driver behind the wheel, the player is in control of the team, the strategy, and so on. It's a game that will make you think because every decision is crucial, and you will see it all play out on the track. Whatever happens, it's a learning process, and it's fun too, which is never a bad thing.

Forza Horizon 5

Forza Horizon 5 is the latest installment of the Horizon series, and it sees the game move into Mexico. And, because the Horizon collection sports open-world play, it makes for a fantastic experience where theres tons of racing on the agenda, but also car culture, which is huge. What Forza Horizon 5 presents is the chance to explore over five hundred cars to modify, incredible visuals, and miles upon miles of track to race along. And, if all that wasnt enough, there are the photo and creator modes to get lost in too.


Wreckfest tears up the script when it comes to racing games because it's more akin to a demolition derby than anything else. Other drives crashing into you will be seriously annoying when you're playing a standard racer. However, in Wreckfest, the aim is to do precisely that, forcing opponents into walls or trying to make them spin out. There are tons of vehicles to choose from, including lawnmowers, believe it or not, and to win, you must be the last one standing. So, be prepared to do battle.

Xbox remains the home of racing games. And, what were seeing in 2022 is more variety being added in terms of different types of racers. It means that more gamers than ever will find a racing sim that appeals to them, from motorsports through to battle royale-type racing games.
