    Sad and I enjoyed the game after his name on GBA I think it was or GBC, that rally 2.0 series was good.

    By the way where are you reading the kid died? That story only says him, and then the stuff below says the roasting of the chopper was so bad they couldn't tell much of anything from what was left so far (as of when that was typed up.) Depressing regardless.

    This topic should not have had a smiley face for the thread icon!

    RIP Colin, even though you turned to the darkside and drove a Ford, the good inside will always remain and gain you entrance to Subaru heaven.

    Okay, so who's going to be the first jerk to make a DIRT joke?

    RIP.

    As tasteless as it is, reading this :

    "Okay, so who's going to be the first jerk to make a DIRT joke?"

    made me think of this :

    I was thinking more a new game like Colin McRae's Mountain Strike.

    You know, I always thought he would die in a serious rally accident kinda like I thought Steve Irwin would die from getting bitten by a snake but I suppose that's the way it goes.

    RIP Colin McRae.

    Being burnt alive or dead would be a horrible way to die. R.I.P

    If true (its not actually been 100% confirmed yet as indentification hasn't been completed yet) I hope they continue on his legacy with his games.

    He is one of the UKs modern heroes.

    Same here. Makes some kind of sense, though. A rally car, for Colin (much like snakes for Steve) was familiar territory, and he had a lot of experience there and knew his footing, while a helicopter (or a ray) was a new and unfamiliar territory with a lot of nasty (and fatal) surprises.
