Removed YMMV trope link.
** The 2015 reboot continues the trend, with Ventura Bay possibly being the best-looking locale seen in the series so far. The upcoming PC version is going to exploit this trope to the fullest extent with [=4K=] graphics and an unlocked framerate, which is a huge breath of relief for those coming from the ([[PortingDisaster underwhelming]]) PC port for ''Rivals''.

* GreyAndGrayMorality: In ''Rivals'', the Racers are technically breaking the law, are doing property damage up in the hundred-thousands of dollars, and have even hospitalized a cop, but they're doing this because they feel the RCPD is turning Redview into a PoliceState. The RCPD is also shown as morally grey, as [[WellIntentionedExtremist they are not above using below-the-belt tactics to curb the criminal activity in the county and keep their citizens safe and sound.]]

Some edits.
** ''Need for Speed'' 2015 uses an actual license plate design for the first time in the series (that of California). The Showcase Update would later add ''Rivals''[='=] racer license plate designs as customization choices and allowed players to change the plate frames for the first time. * TheVoiceless: The player character in every ''Need for Speed'' from ''Underground'' through ''Undercover''. Doesn't count for older games nor Criterion's installments since they have no story. * VillainousBreakdown: Slowly happens to Razor and Cross from ''Most Wanted'' 2005, as well as Darius from ''Carbon''.
