Video Game: Final Fantasy XIII-2 (2012)

Chocobo racing in FFXIII-2 is a throwback to a similar mini game in Final Fantasy VII, which many consider to be the best FF game of all. Your chocobo has a number of stats, and you've got to strike a balance to have a hope of winning. It's quite similar this time around, though without the same breeding system found in the older game. Either way, it definitely pushes our nostalgia buttons.
