Something about this on a GBC game makes me feel like I'm taking drugs:

(It's ironic, because the graphics during the gameplay itself don't look good at all. The sound effects are nice though.)

Sure Wacky Races isn't? I'm under the impression it has a prerendered small texture at different scaling levels and then chooses a different slice every line.

Yeah, the road textures definitely look pre-rendered, as do the sprites that are scaled from the distance. Maybe tepples meant that the shape of the tracks aren't pre-rendered... but the result isn't real 3D either.

Anyway, Wacky Races reminds me of Street Racer on the MD/Genesis (the SNES version is completely different since it uses mode 7).

The biggest problem with these kind of racing games to me is that when there are very sharp turns, I just can't convince myself that those are turns and that the road isn't just being stretched out like taffy. I almost wonder how well it would look if you tried to have a pre rendered turned road texture, and how you'd implement it, because it doesn't look like it's turning, it just looks like it's sheering, kind of like walls in any of the Doom engine games that allow you to look up.

Depends entirely on the game, really. On some it's obvious it's just some dumb deformation, but some take the effort to make the road at a distance match the actual intended turn (it becomes especially obvious when you're going downhill and next ahead is uphill).

That will never get out of my head now.
