Looking for mindless entertainment this holiday season? Or a game you can school your younger siblings in until they stomp away in frustration? Your call has been answered with Konami’s Jimmie Johnson’s Anything With an Engine!
Many view Jimmie Johnson as the new face of NASCAR. But he doesn’t just love to drive—he also games. So, with an idea in mind that mixes both, he approached a college buddy about creating a bizarre racing game of his own. Suffice it to say, he and his team have accomplished something that is bizarre in the best way possible. You’ll fire missiles, ram into opponents and blow yourself to smithereens if you don’t reach the pit stop in time. It’s Mario Kart without the annoying shrieks from Mario and Luigi.
Amid a plethora of gaming options, we can’t think of a better family-friendly multiplayer than this crazy racing title. With lots of racing modes, Jimmie Johnson’s Anything With an Engine is perfect for a bit of gaming between dessert and entertaining those long-lost relatives who always pop up around this time of year.
