Need for Speed: Underground Rivals
The 1969 Charger R/T appears in Need for Speed: Underground Rivals with a $44,000 price tag. It offers quick acceleration at the cost of some handling drawbacks.
A Boss version entitled - Tank - can be unlocked if the player races against it in a Cup level boss race using a Japanese car.
Need for Speed: Carbon
The Charger R/T is one of the most powerful Tier 2 cars but suffers from heavy steering in corners. Thanks to a high kerb weight, it is also effective in pursuits.
Need for Speed: ProStreet
The 1969 Charger R/T appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a tier 2 vehicle with a $30,000 price tag.
It boasts powerful acceleration and excels at performing burnouts due to a torquey V8 engine. Because of a high weight, the Charger R/T has a sluggish steering feel around corners. It is best utilised in Drag mode although when fully upgraded, it becomes prone to performing wheelies, if given too much grip during a burnout.
There is tier 2 bonus Grip car that can be driven in Quick Race.
There is a tier 3 bonus Drag car that can be driven in Quick Race.

Need for Speed: Shift
The 1969 Charger R/T appears in the downloadable Team Racing Pack for Need for Speed: Shift. It is a tier 2 vehicle with a car rating of 5.10.
Quick acceleration and a decent top speed allow the Charger R/T to have good straight-line performance. However, it can easily spin out in corners as a consequence of its high weight.
Need for Speed: Nitro
Thiago, the top racer in Rio de Janeiro, drives a Charger R/T in all of the location's Silver Cup race events except for the Drift Challenge, Time Attack, and Speed Trap events. In addition, Thiago's Charger R/T can also be seen in his profile video, the game's opening video, and all tutorial videos. Except the gameplay shots in all the tutorial videos, his Charger R/T is not equipped with a supercharger.
Thiago's Charger R/T can be unlocked as a collectable car for use in both Arcade Mode and Career Mode, once all stars are obtained in all Rio de Janeiro Silver Cup events.
Need for Speed: World
The standard Charger R/T has a 188 overall rating and is currently retired from the car dealer.
In contrast to previous title appearances, the Charger R/T has poor acceleration coupled with stiff handling, causing the vehicle to understeer in corners and preventing it from compensating its cornering capabilities. It has a slightly stronger nitrous boost than the 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T at the expense of a lower top speed of 119 mph (195 km/h).
The Elite style is a rental car that can be leased for 80. It was made available on May 16th, 2010 during the fourth closed beta.
