Ive played WoT exclusively for many years, I know, sad.....  Last weekend however my son and nephew stayed over and my nephew brought his ps4 pro, thrustmaster ferrari wheel and pedals and we played Project Cars for far too long, including an LMP2 6hr real time endurance race at LeMans until 3am Sunday morning (finished 6th over all!), swapping driver every 20 minutes.   Absolutely awesome fun, and for the first time my PC wasn't even powered up.  I love driving and riding bikes and have spent a lot of time on racetracks in them, this simulator is so close to reality that im totally impressed.   Its nice not waking up in the morning with out the aches and pains as well ;)

 

The world of driving games has now entered my life so ive ordered the same wheel set, a ps4pro and im looking into buying a racing seat setup,  which leads me to the question, can you get an m3lee skin for an LMP car in project cars ;)

I'm not a console guy but there's more games on steam and GOG combined than one could ever hope to play in a life time, and a whole lot of them are more enjoyable than WoT. You've been doing yourself a disservice for years man.

If you do not mind a really hard driving game try Grand Prix Legends. Especially if you like the late sixties early seventies F1 cars. Or F2 there's mods for that too. Great circuits like Zandvoort and the old really long Nurnburgring (and Spa's much longer too). Tons of fan made tracks, car sets & circuits available. You do need wheels/pedals for the PC for it though.

my last real racing game was "nascar 2" on PC.

was eyeing on "DiRT" but decided against somehow.

I ran DeathRace2000 or whatever it is called on DosBox.

That game should get a modern update because what is not to like about racing with cars which have ramming pikes, oil, spikes (caltrops) and rockets. :justwait:

Nice, ill have a look into it.  The wheel/pedals will also work on the PC (hhhm, wonder what its like in a pz1c)...

 

Ive not tried F1 yet, but when totally competent in lmp2/1 ill give it a whirl, thanks for the suggestion.
