Psyonix's award-winning driving/football hybrid Rocket League is the spiritual successor to the best-named game in eSports history: Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle Cars.
Why they didn't call it SARPBC 2 is and always will be beyond us.
Rocket League games consist of teams of between 1 and 4 players controlling miniaturised cars (customised to their own designs, of course), trying to score goals by ramming into the oversized football in the centre of the field. Boost pickups and jets allow cars to fly briefly as well as run up the side walls of the arena, while colliding with an opponent at speed will eliminate them from the game for a short while.
