Since then, racing games have given us ever-more lifelike physics, graphics and artificial intelligence. We’ve even got the the chance to race online against other humans. Peripherals like real-feel steering wheels have gotten better; the best of them promise racing immersion from the comfort of our couches. It’s all been great fun for racing fans, but is any of it truly realistic? What do racing video games teach you about racing real cars?

Before I go further, let me say I know there are PC racing sims with far more realistic physics models than console games. I’ve played a couple of hours of GTR, but nothing more. But I have played lots of GT and Forza Motorsport and other console racers. That’s the gaming experience I drew from as I tried doing it in real life.


Its a long but interesting read, about how PC video game racing or console racing no matter how realistic it may be, wither it be Forza or Grand Turismo or the acclaimed super physics engine of the new NFS game. Real life racing and video game racing will never be the same.

I think that the old MicroPROSE GP500 is still the best BIKEsim, the unmodded one.

I've never really played bike sims... come to think about it...

I never thought they were very realistic, i gave up after trying ones @ DnB which were nothing to seem like it actually seems like!

I know its a bit lame, but any one heard of the game ROAD RASH? :D:D:D
Sure, i had it on my Amiga 500 in the early 90´ish :) its was fun to kick other of the bike :D

But that game dosnt even come close to GP500

I have tried a lot of bikesims, and GP500 is still the best, but install it on Win98

The many mods for the game through the years "destroys" the handling of the bikes, but i liked the addon tracks
