The Titus Crazy Cars series contained three games by the time the 3rd game was released it had morphed from a decent, but flaw simple racer into a true competitor in the first person racing space. Note: Crazy Cars was released in 1988 not 1998. The years have gone by so fast!
Crazy Cars I (1988 not 1998)
Crazy Cars II (1989)
Crazy Cars III (1992)
