Midnight Club 3 is credited.

Racing video games have always been among the most popular, due to the near-realistic feeling that was previously associated with early video games within the genre or other factors that have pushed the genre towards greater prominence throughout the years, from simple arcade games that let the player take center stage, through to newer titles introduced under the PlayStation 2 era, such as Need for Speed and Grand Turismo.

Street Racing in Midnight Club

Midnight Club: Street Racing was first released in 2000 for PlayStation 2 and Game Boy Advance, with the Nintendo version being a reduced-down, simplified version of the PS2 release, as has been throughout Nintendo's career with non-exclusive games until the Nintendo Switch came along to exploit cloud technology for games its hardware couldn't even handle. The first Midnight Club video game featured the player as a New York taxi driver who discovers the racing club.

Midnight Club in Los Angeles is credited.

Sequels in the Midnight Club Video Game Series

Midnight Club: Los Angeles, the last installment in the Midnight Club video game series, was released first for the PlayStation 2 exclusively before being released elsewhere, much like Midnight Club: Street Racing. Other sequels included Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition and its re-release, as a Greatest Hits and Platinum Hits title for PlayStation 2 and Xbox.

The Midnight Club Video Game Series Could Return

The last original Midnight Club video game, Midnight Club: Los Angeles, was released in 2008, and the following year, Midnight Club: Los Angeles Complete Edition, respectively. However, Rockstar has been so busy with its other games that they have made a return to the racing genre with a new Midnight Club installment in the video game series, six times consecutively.
