While TrackMania didn't have a wide release nor have high production values, it did spark a bit of a cult following due to its fun and addictive gameplay. TrackMania is a game in which you can build tracks and race on them. What makes it so addictive is that its track editor is very simplistic and easy to use, allowing one to pick up and build. Then you can take your tracks online, and see how fast your opponents can beat it.
