Anyone remember Planet Hot Wheels? It was a free-to-play massively multiplayer online racing game by Mattel Media. It was really popular during the late 1990s and early 2000s. Sadly it was shutdown in like 2003 without any warning whatsoever, and no public announcement was ever made about the game being shutdown. I remember always buying Hot Wheels cards because some of them came with codes that you could use to get free parts for your car in the game, and use your car to race against millions of other people around the world. The game also had a bunch of mini-games in it, where you could win in-game money, and use that in-game money to improve your car in the game. It was an amazing game, my uncle and I used to play it all the time when I was younger. I wasn't a teenager, so I obviously didn't really understand the game, but I used to think the mini-games were "cool". I really wish I could try out the game now that I am capable of fully appreciating and understanding it. The game's website is: Toy Cars | Find Your Favorite Diecast Toy Car or Toy Truck | Hot Wheels
