Showcase events are a staple of the Forza Horizon series of games. If you’re remembering a specific moment from a Horizon game, there’s a good chance it’s from a showcase event. Often criticized, these scripted races have even been targeted by memes.
Despite the often silly nature of these events, we still look back on them fondly, because there are too few modern racing games that offer this level of ridiculousness. If you’re looking for a modern racing title that will allow you to jump a moving train, well I’m sorry to say the list is quite short.
In celebration of these wacky races, we went back and picked out a few of our absolute favourites from the Horizon franchise. Do you agree with our picks? Have you played all four of the Horizon games? Which showcase events were your favourite? Let us know on social media or in the comments section of the YouTube video! You can also read about our favourites too.
