Burnout Paradise, who still plays?

Yeah! Who still plays this classic crashfest driving game? I've got it on multiple platforms...guess if a game is fairly good it stands the test of time. Still selling on Steam and Origin for an average of $20 which means it's not going anywhere soon...anyone wanna freeburn? PC, 360 or PS3? :)

    Burnout Revenge was a college staple for me. Haven't played any other iterations of the series.
    You sound like enders with his affinity for Halo..... :p

    I've got that on the 360 too, fun fun fun! Just went out today and picked up a XBox One Controller with Play and Charge kit to use with my gaming PC...I also use a 360 wired controller with another system, something about a game console controller that just works nice for some odd reason.

    If this is the game where upon crashing into or slamming an oponent off the track sent a picture of the guys face.,.. I loved it! I used to do all kinds of crazy stuff when I got run of the track.

    Reminds me of this one kid who decided to take me out a couple of times when I was Freeburning online...was driving the Hunter Calvary for kicks...he takes me out twice...the second time I was heading to the Junkyard to grab my Nighthawk GT...once I was in that car...and a couple of dozen takedowns of him and the silly look on his face with each photo that got sent my way lol...was hilarious to see the facial expressions near the end of my road raging :)

    One of my favorites. Total aggression release after a day of sitting in traffic. There have been times I would imagine the damage a 22k lb bucket truck would do. Bang! Bounce a Corolla off a guard rail! Good times.

    Got that right there man! Nothing like firing up the old classic and simply starting a Road Rage event and go into brutal takedown mode!

    Wow, this looks like a fun game! Wish it was available for couch co-op split screen. Unfortunately, nowadays game makers make fewer games like this.

    Nightfall, I guess that's why I went with a XBox One to upgrade the 360...but haven't yet gone for a PS4, just nothing appeals to me on that platform. Honestly the best driving games so far to my liking out lately have contained the Forza name somewhere...and only available on XBox.
  • What do you prefer to use as a controller for PS3 & 360 driving games? Suggestions?

    I first played the game on a PC with the keyboard (not optimal of course). Then I got a 360 controller for Windows and it was actually quite good. Then I got a PS3 and figured why not so I bought the game for that platform, the smaller PS3 controller really didn't feel like it had the heft of the 360, I then got a 360 console and picked up the disc for that platform, better play and Big Surf on the 360 WITH the 360 controller...I was in heaven. Now that the game is backwards compatible on the XBox One, the One controller just surpasses the 360 in feel and accuracy in my opinion.

    Granted I do have larger hands with longer fingers...the PS3 controller just feels small and light to me.
