Gaming vs. Reality: The Shotgame Driver

by Paul Strauss

On the surface, video games franchises like Forza Motorsport and Grand Turismo have reached a point of realism that’s so spot-on that they’re the next best thing to actually racing on a track. But is that an accurate statement? In a totally unscientific test, Viagame set up a special PC gaming rig in a Renault Renault Mégane Red Bull Edition, then put a gamer in the passenger seat playing the exact same course as a race car driver and asked them to race against each other.

In this particular case, it appears the gamer was playing Need for Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed, which isn’t exactly the most precise racing game, but it still gets the point across. We can only imagine the moments where the driver and gamer are out of sync are a bit disorienting for the gamer.

(Thanks for the tip, Joakim!)
