Pole Position

Although probably debatable, this is in my mind the definitive racer on the VCS. A veritable miracle was achieved just getting it to move. But move it does; and at one heck of a rate. You can almost hear the puny graphics chips scream as everything roars along. The sounds a bit tinny and even in 1983 the game was hardly going to win awards for originality, but hey. Graphically the game holds together well, though I can't get my head round why the opposition cars are all solely yellow. Addictive, impressive and lovely. Though admittedly the Atari 800 series version was even better.
