And here are some you will see after the voting is over...
I swear we need to restructure this thing at some point, most of the time deletion falls under Template:Quickdelete/Category:Quick Deletions anyway, and this is mainly for things where deleting may be questionable. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 01:03, May 22, 2011 (UTC)

Beetle Adventure Racing
See this. It's near wholly cribbed from the Wikipedia page for the game, there are no references given for the claims of the game originally being a port of High Stakes for the N64, the developers have not worked on an actual Need for Speed game, the list goes on.
I've re-written the entire article, but I'm not that eloquent so it's a bit of a stub. For proof on the whole "was going to be an NFS game" thing, see the following video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-n5ukQ_jZX8 TortleOfWar (talk) 06:37, November 6, 2016 (UTC)
Beetle Adventure Racing
Why are the articles for Beetle Adventure Racing and the VW New Beetle marked for deletion? I see Motor City Online and Shift 2: Unleashed in the games category on the home page despite the fact that neither of them contain "Need for Speed" in the title of the game. I feel like due to the fact that BAR was originally going to be High Stakes for the N64, it at least deserves its own article on this wiki.
That's because Motor City Online was originally called Need for Speed: Motor City which you can read the background here and in the Wikipedia article of the game. Shift 2: Unleashed is a direct sequel to Need for Speed: Shift.
I've found a few more links, some hold more weight than others. The BAR page on Giantbomb claims that it runs on a modified version of the PS1 Hot Pursuit engine, but other reviews have claimed that it runs on a modified version of Paradigm's F1 game engine, so that's something that would need to be either confirmed or deconfirmed. I've also found a BAR wiki someone apparently set up that claims an NFS logo was found in the game's data, and most of what's on it seems pretty legit but I've got no way to confirm this without trying to find a way to extract all the game's graphical assets. The final thing I've found so far is a personal page of someone who worked on both BAR and multiple entries in the NFS franchise, tying the games together at least spiritually. I'm going to go ahead and link both the wiki's NFS leftovers page, and the EA employee's personal page. I'm probably going to go to bed for now, but I'm off work tomorrod so I'll keep looking for some kind of confirmation.
