20. Split/Second: Velocity (2010)
Split/Second’s formula for great television is much the same as TG’s: fast cars and explosions. The game’s futuristic reality TV show conceit was an excuse for the inclusion of ‘Power Plays’ which allowed you to detonate the scenery in the middle of the race and drop it on top of your opponents. We’re not just talking about the odd red barrel either; you could destroy an entire hydroelectric dam for the sole purpose of obliterating your rivals and winning the ‘episode’. Certainly makes a refreshing change from watching people eat kangaroo unmentionables.
