    Default Project Car 2

    Now, I'm by no means a 'gamer', in fact I only currently have 2 games on my computer, but thought I'd give Project Cars 2 a go. I was one of the early funders of Project Cars and they recently sent me a cheque as unbeknown to me that meant I'm a shareholder in the game and it's done pretty well. Anyway, I hought a new 'gaming rig' to run some new golf simulator software, have a force feedback wheel so thought I'd try Project Cars 2.

    All I can say is it's very, very good.

    The force feedback is amazing, you really do seem to feel the road. Of course it's not like proper driving but it does feel unbelievably close where you start tweaking the force feedback settings. As for realism, this gives an idea.....

    Lots of tracks, an unbelievable number of cars (all of which are alledgedly fully modelled in terms of handling), ability to set up the car how you want it and a very 'real' feel - I'd say it's not bad for a game. To be fair it's more simulator than game.

    Taking the 288 GTO along about 12 miles of the south coast of France was a blast.

    As I say, not a gamer, but if you are and like driving games it could be worth a bash.

    I really need to get a wheel & pedal setup to get back into it, but I grudge spending more on a wheel, pedal & seat combo than the PS4 cost in the first place!

    I'm just having a go for fun so my old Logitech force feedback wheel and pedals will do for now. Still a blast.

    My 10 year old son had a go in a Kart at Brans Hatch. He was pretty good tbh. Got the idea of how to correct a slide and smoothly apply power etc.

    They are more simulators now than 'game'.

    We are a generation of gamers and my wife spent most of her youth in arcades - the kids were blown away when they realised how good she was. PS4 pro sits in pride of place under the main TV for 4K Gran Turismo action. Sega Mega Drive, Nintendo 64, GameCube, PS3 are all plumbed in for retro action. Proper family nights in playing gauntlet with the kids.

    Better than monging out in front of the TV passively watching some crap.

    Sorry to disagree but I quite enjoy "monging out" in front of the telly, in particualr I really enjoy "Debbie does Dallas" does anyone have a spare VHS tape as mine is getting somewhat worn out

    There are now websites for that where you can watch the whole film for free on your smart TV - you will find it in the niche section called classic or vintage.

    You and yours can then enjoy the nostalgia of body hair together as many times as you want ;-)
