Have been driving GT since it first came out.
I do enjoy a First person Shooter now and then, but Racing / Driving Sims / Games are my main escape.
I like Flight Sims too...
Reaction times have fallen off, so my days of being the Pole sitter are long gone...
but I still enjoy the competition, even if I'm a tad bit slower and finish in last place, It's a Blast..
Put me behind the Wheel, and I'll do my best to Drive the Tires off of it...
Years ago, my First Wheel was a combo Driving wheel / Flight yoke.
It was a support with two Pillow blocks, a Wheel attached to a Long Hollow tube that fit in the pillow blocks.
Two Bungee straps would Hold your Mouse tight against that hollow tube.
Turn the wheel, it rotated the mouse ball.
Push in or Pull out, rotated the mouse ball in the other direction, used for flight sims.
you could Flip up a arm, and the end of the Tube would rest against it, for Driving games that you didn't want the Wheel to Push in or pull out.
Gas and Break were cherry snap action switch with a peddles type actuator, On or Off only..
they plugged in as a Keyboard Wedge and simulated pressing a Key on the Keyboard..
Crude video graphics, terrible frame rates, But Man I was Driving a Race car simulator with a real wheel, and a Gas and Break Pedal..
That was the mid to late 80's
Amazing how far things have come.
Thank you fastest fisherman in the west. That is really saying something given your extensive experience racing against crocodile hunting vegemite eaters.
I know, in this particular race, you shall always be in my rear view mirror.
I'm still not sayin...
but funny story:
whenever somebody asks in Playstation Home, I use the "think of a number" animation - it generates a random number between 1 and 100 in the text chat dialogue, often with hilarious results. LOL
And just think....the PS4 has an 8-core Bulldog processor, 2.5 GB of dedicated graphics memory (512 reuns the whole system right now), 8gb of GGDR3 memory, a 150 GB HD, and 4 USP 4.0 (maybe) ports.
Talk about some simulation on the way with GT6!!!!
(Specs off the top of my head...sorry if I messed something up)
