Road Trip! – Vidjagame Apocalypse 433

When it comes to crucibles that test the bonds of friendship or family, few burn hotter than the one where you lock yourselves into a moving vehicle for hours and hours and hours. As summer winds down, we’ve invited Tony Wilson of Framework for a look at some of the best games built around long road trips, letting us experience the fun and camaraderie of the road without the tedium and frustration (usually). Then it’s on to Marvel’s Avengers: War for Wakanda, Road 96, Boyfriend Dungeon, and the underrepresented animals that you’d like to see make more game appearances?

Question of the Week: What’s a videogame world you’d like to take a road trip through, and/or what’s your favorite vidjagame to play on road trips?

  1. The game I most want to road trip in is Euro Truck Simulator. I spent almost 8 years living in various European countries thanks to the Air Force and I miss it a lot. Euro Truck Simulator really does capture the feeling of being there. I miss driving way too fast down the Autobahn and Autostrada. I fondly remember driving through the prairie-like terrain of Anatolia, Turkey and driving past Mount Olympus on what’s basically the only highway worth a damn in Greece. There’s so much to see and do in Europe and I hope to be able to road trip through it again some day.

  2. I was listening to your road trip podcast while setting up my sit down Outrun Arcade1up cab so of course the Outrun universe is going to be my answer! Imagine going for a trip in a nice car with a pal where you can go from scenery to scenery every 30 seconds or so. Sure you might crash and fly out of the car as it rolls around, but the only consequence would be a slight delay in your journey. Bonus points if you also get the turbo boost from Turbo Outrun and the ability to visit actual cities/countries/landmarks from Outrunners. As you can see I’m really enjoying this new arcade cab…

  3. I’ve been waiting years for Doki Doki Literature Club to be released physically and it’s finally releasing next month. I had successfully avoided spoilers until listening to this episode. Normally I don’t care about spoilers, but damn I was so close. Plus, there was like no warning and the game is less than 5 years old. Good job guys.

  4. QOTW: The game world that I would want to road trip through would be Mass Effect. Specifically the Citadel. It is a huge structure and we only ever scratched the surface of. Traveling through each of the Wards and the Presidium while meeting all sorts of interesting aliens and seeing how they interact with each other outside of the glimpses we saw with Shepard would be fascinating.
    My favorite game to play on road trips is the portable Zelda games. I have great memories as a child driving in the car for hours and hours traveling to a place to camp and then sitting out in the woods ignoring nature while playing Links Awakening and the Oracle games.
