    Gran Turismo 4 is in my opinion, THE best racing game on the PS2. It's quite serious - if he wants something more fun / arcadey check out any of the Colin McRae Rally Games (4 is my personal favourite - easiest to access) or the Burnout series are lots of fun as well.

    Thanks, I'm thinking that I'll be able to get some games on the cheap, so maybe I could get two...

    Re: Recommend I a Playstation *2* racing game.

    No. 1 choice is Gran Turismo 4. Simply the best driving game on the PS2 or anywhere else until GT5 comes out. (I'm soooo looking forward to that. I may have to buy a G25 to celebrate)

    Coming in strongly at no. 2 is Burnout 3 Takedown.

    Both should be available on budget by now so get him both. He'll love you for it but his wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/significant other might not when he goes out and buys a steering wheel to use on them.

    Re: Recommend I a Playstation *2* racing game.

    Yup - I got both in the end. Came to £25 inc delivery, which ain't bad in my book.

    I absolutely loved GT2 on the Playstation, and since my g/f has a playstation 2 kicking about, maybe I'll get a copy of GT4 for myself

    Mashed has always been a personal favourite - its kind of a racing/slash combat game.
    I also second GT4 and burnout

    Burnout 3 is especially good with a muti-tap, 3 friends and some drink

    I'd go with Gran Turismo 4 followed by Burnout 3 Takedown both good.
