  • Auto racers here?

    Just wondering if there are any racing sim fans here. I picked up GTR: FIA GT Racing a couple months ago. Despite *loving* it (amazing to play when hooked up with a sleek wheel/pedal combo) I really haven't had enough time to sink my teeth into it (too many competing gaming goings-on :row__640: ).

    If anyone has this game, or is looking for a new racer to try out online (I've only ever raced against AI), I'd enjoy giving it a whirl.

    Also, coming in early '06 is the follow-up title from the same developer. It's GT Legends, and covers a wide range of classic racers from the '60s and 70's. The demo is incredible... even better than the GTR I mentioned first. Personally I can't wait for the new release as the classic cars from Europe and America from that period are so raw and give such a visceral experience.

    Post here if you're interested. :icon14: :row__685:

    I'm definitely interested. I only have NASCAR 2004 right now, but I'm not opposed to picking up a new game! :-)

      The last racing sim I bought was the last Papyrus Nascar. I have been looking at picking up that game. What wheel/pedal combo do you have? I need to get one.

          LOL.. I take it you've never really played NASCAR 2004 then. You'd end up out of the game in no time and what time you DID spend in the game would be under a yellow flag. Remind me not to get you on MY team. :-)

            Wow! That's some unexpected response! Great to see there's some interest, and from familar faces as well! Cool!

            GTR is the first racing sim I've bought in... well... since I can remember. Probably since the very early 90's, and that was dreadfully disappointing (for obvious tech limit reasons). I've skipped the NASCAR games, despite their well reviewed realism, because I loath circle-track racing. I'm a road course man , and always will be (living less than an hour away from Watkins Glen will do that ;) ). If I can tempt folks to try the demo and perhaps pick up the full game, I bet we could have some great fun. GTR has realism settings, from arcade (training wheels included)all the way up to full simulation professional (utterly unforgiving of even the slightest mistake). I haven't tinkered with the garage area where you can tweak all sorts of settings, but I bet it opens the game up in really interesting ways.

            My wheel combo is Logitech's MOMO Racing Force Feedback. Can't say enough good things about it. I love the paddle shifter!

                Grand Turismo is a sim? :-) I never took it that seriously, seemed more like an arcade-style racing game to me.

                  Aw your kidding me right? The most realistic physics i've seen for a racing game.

                  Maybe you didn't play simulation mode with sim tires?

                            Oh, I certainly have. I just didn't think it held a candle to NASCAR 2003/2004.

                              I have and play on occasion, NASCAR SimRacing and NASCAR Racing 2003 Season... so with the right racing game and the right interest, I would also join in the fun....

                              I just don't bother until something is popular enough, got too many games in the closet as is that I don't play. ;)
