 I'm looking forward to seeing the next NFS.  I really liked NFS Most Wanted, so I hope this next one will be like it again...lots of cars to win and customize, and open world gameplay with lots of places to drive around.

I was really in to NFS when the PS1 was out. Not really played much since. Gran torismo or how ever you spell it ate up my PS2 time and now I'm really into GRID(PC) after playing DIRT(PC) for a solid month. I'll have to give NFS another shot.

 Hey bob, how's Grid?  It looks good, but I've held off buying it so far.  Is it worth getting?

Its a very good game. You need a good computer to play at high settings. You also need a game controller or wheel to get the most out of it. The drift races are all but impossible with the keyboard.

Ok that's cool...I've got a 360 wireless controller adapter for my PC.  I'll probably get Grid once the price drops a bit. Thanks.

 for me porsche unleashed was the most annoying and frustrating. it is in my collection of need for speeds and God i hated how you have to run the porsche in a test track so you could move into the the roads...

my favorite of all is needforspeed SE, because of the video and obviously the introduction of the mclaren f1 :)

Nice! If your looking to give that new rig a good workout I just picked up FarCry 2. And wow! I just got it this evening and I have not even scratched the surface and I already feel overwhelmed with stuff to do. It looks great. DirectX 10 even bogs down my rig though. I think its the 2GBs of ram.

1680x1050. It runs fine in DX9 mode. Still looks great too.
