Testing Out the New F1 Game on $70,000 Simulators
Those who aren’t very well acquainted with the current state of gaming technology might be surprised just how far things have come. In fact, with setups like the one we’re about to dive into, although you can play video games on them, perhaps the owner of such a system would be a bit insulted if you called it “gaming” at all. Instead, the simulators, while fun to operate, have become more of a training tool than something that one would find in a child’s bedroom to play Super Mario.
In fact, when we throw in the fact that the simulators cost as much as or more than the variety of new cars that you will find on the streets these days, I think that most folks can see just how serious things really get. If we really get down to the nuts and bolts of how realistic these things are, let’s just say that there are certain drivers who have done incredibly well on racing simulations and managed to jump their way to the big leagues afterward. Yeah, it’s that serious.
This time, we check in with Supercar Blondie as she has a head-to-head battle with a pair of $70,000 racing simulator machines. The game in question this time is EA Sports’s new F1 2022 game. So, how exactly does one of the latest video games play on a rig that likely costs more than most people’s vehicles? It’s time to find out just that.
In any case, we would venture to say that simulators like this are probably something that just about every racing fan wants to add to the repertoire after watching them in action. What could possibly be better than operating one of the highest-class racing machines in the entire world, all from the comfort of your own home?
