It took 20 years, but the most successful racing video game series has finally spawned a namesake movie.

Whether that movie is any good or not remains to be seen, but at least a Need for Speed  movie is a step in the right direction for the franchise.

In 1994, Electoric Arts gave birth to a game that single-handedly took the racing game genre to new heights. Since the original game, EA, in collaboration with numerous different developers, has rolled out 20 official titles as part of the Need For Speed series, as well as a few spin-offs.

In honor of the Need for Speed film, starring Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, hitting the big screen this weekend, we decided to take a look back at some of the most notable installments of the franchise.

In no particular order, here are: The 10 best Need for Speed video games.
