WipEout by leaps and bounds. For one you actually have to employ the basics concepts of racing such as out-in-out, lane keeping around opponents etc. and hitting the walls is usually punished. The best classic installment for beginners is Wip3out (SE if you can get it) and the best modern installment by far is the Omega collection. Combines HD, Fury and 2048. HD and Fury themselves both containing the best tracks from Pure and Pulse.
F-Zero is also good, but it's a VERY different game that rewards different things. Don't even put them in the same ring, they're not comparable.>>4586613
Turbo "weapons" in WipEout have a chunky kick to them in Pulse onwards. In the original WipEout HD/Fury, stopping your ship and starting the thruster again will cause a thump.>>4586717
Try something faster than Vector or Venom.>>4586610
Weapons can be toggled off in custom races in certain installments.>>4586714
This, as I said
There's always the music too. F-Zero has memorable tracks just as WipEout has good picks from the era it was released from. WipEout tends to have picks from whatever British nightclubs were playing at the time, since the first game was conceptualised in one (They were playing that beach boys song, hence the name). I think the PS1 games even play their music in a CD player too, but I could be wrong.
