Burnout 3
First mentioned by Frezzato

Racing games can always get your blood pumping, simply through the speed and competition. Burnout 3 is no exception, especially since it introduced the series' "Takedown" mechanic. Smash into an opponent's car and cause them to crash, and you'll get an extension on your boost meter. You also earn boost by drifting, nearly hitting other vehicles, and by driving in oncoming traffic. It's not unusual to find yourself in oncoming traffic, dodging cars and keeping your boost activated as you struggle to catch up to the leaders in a race. At the time of its release, Burnout 3 was the king of the arcade racers.
