Woow! Playing online car racing games is really turning the gaming scene up a notch. Back in the day, with the proper old school computers, such as the commodore 64 (now the age is showing), to get multi-player you had to more or less, have a cable guy connect the computers together to be able to play in multi-player mode. Like 2 players.
Look at what you can do now when you’re playing online car racing games. You’ve got all sorts of options: tuning your car, racing head to head or competing in all sorts of street races.
Street races which are actually based on maps as well.
… Not just designed specifically for a racing game.
It’s not even just your desktop PC you can play the games on. Gaming consoles like the Xbox 360, lets you go online through your console and race against any player, anywhere in the world.
Wireless steering wheels are available as well for some consoles, so you can sit and play online car racing games, without the hassles of getting wires all tangled up. Avoiding losing your concentration and ending up losing the game, when you used to have to sort the wires out and end up going head on into a wall. Off the cliff edges and all sorts of crazy stuff that make the awesomeness of racing games.
With various challenges, race options and customization jobs, it’s no wonder there’s so may games to choose from.
Not just racing either.
There’s all out action games, that you need to be able to drive fast if you are to evade being captured by the law for your racing antics. Games like GTA, where you can up to all sorts of mischief, nick a car and outrun the law.
Then there’s car shooting games, where you have to maintain your speed while trying to take out your opponent.
That’s great when you’re playing the part of a cop chasing the fugitives. Doing whatever you want to hunt them down, while trying to blow out their tyres and bring them to a stop.
For the new era of gaming, the Xbox 360 seems to have hit the nail on the head with the option of going online.
Car racing games are excellent when you’re racing in real time and it’s amazing to think that you can jump on the net anytime you want and be able to race a real opponent instead of a programmed computer.
Of course, there’s no need to be saying about the difference between the online car racing games experience you get, when you play through a modern games console, in comparison with some of the free online car racing games you can find around the net.
Some of them are just a sheer waste of time and embarrassment to the developers. The graphics are sub-par, the customization is non-existent and there’s very little you can do to make the race your own.
It’s all about enjoying the interaction of the modern gaming, with enhanced graphics, custom engine tuning, real time reporting of damage status and of course, some games like “Need for Speed”, lets you run your races, collect the points based on your driving skill and add all sorts of enhancements to your car.
Letting you add on super power boosters that will amp as much speed as possible, ensuring that when you take that car out the garage for the next race, you can kick your opponents to the curb with an awesome street car and work your way up the career modes some games have and be crowned the fastest driver on the net.
All of this made possible with online car racing games, serving us gamers up with some absolutely stunning gaming experiences that was once nowhere near the game play we see now.
