Racing games

Anyone recommend any racing games for the pc?? Assetto Corsa, iRacing??

Though I'm not keen on the subscription idea for iRacing

ETS2 is brilliant. I find it very relaxing just trundling around listening to Radio 6. Steam shows I've got about 300 hours on it, with probably the same again on the pre-steam version. No multiplayer though, outside of an unofficial mod. Better with a wheel, although it's playable using an xbox pad. Much improved over the original release - they just keep adding bits on at no cost, got licenses from the trucks brands that were originally faked, and added some good quality DLC for 7. I like SCS, they're a small company of about 30 people now. They're like the anti-EA.

Grid Autosport is OK for arcadey stuff. Not touched RaceRoom in a while. Most of my iRacing time is spent on the BSR Touring Car Championship.

iRacing can get expensive if you want to race everything everywhere. All the base content you need for the Rookie championships is included. Buy the 12 month subscription pack when it's on on offer and it's $50 a year. I'm buying a couple of tracks per season for the BSRTC, at $10 a throw. Learning curve is a bit steep - took me a good season to learn the ropes and get comfortable in the car, where it would take me 5 laps on Forza 4...

Assetto corsa is great, though a bit thin on content and structure.
I was kinda hoping for more once it got released but unfortunately not.
It's slightly more of a sim than p cars but only by a hair

Project cars is really really good, you'll need a great machine to run it reasonably though. Loads and loads of content and a the career structure is shaping up nicely. The changeable condition simulation is bloody amazing.

I think both are essential for any sim racer.

rFactor 2 - decent graphics, brilliant ffb, lacks content and MP. Menu interface is shocking. Expensive for next to zero multi player nless you join leagues or club races on other forums. Lots and lots of mods. Excellent AI.

RaceRoom - DTM and ADAC Experiences are brilliant. Good ffb, best sound in a racing game anywhere, good lag-free multiplayer. Can be expensive, stick to buying the packs and your OK. No mods etc. Very good AI.

AC - good ffb, excellent graphics, good selection of content, plenty of mods (variable quality) and tracks (most at this time are piss poor). UrD have done DTM and GT3 mods (have to pay) and they are very, very good. AI is shite. Mp is very good if a little annoying to join.

Game Stock Car Extreme - cheap with free content updates, excellent ffb and AI... engine is a little dated (uses updated rFactor 1 engine). They keep adding free stuff (for about 15) so the game keeps getting bigger and better - have some classic F1 cars and modern, Mini's, F3's and Go Karts. Best value racer by miles. Online is same as rFactor 2 really.
They have also released a free game - Game Petrobras de Marcas worth checking out.

iRacing - very good ffb and sounds ok. Can be expensive although they do plenty of deals/sales and theres always a 3for1 code floating around online somewhere. Great racing to be had online.

Just got Race room . Seems quite good but not a lot free. Like the idea that you test drive cars before purchasing. Uses a lot Less resources than Pcars on latest build I'm in the red on memory so still need to upgrade that to 8 gig and a more up to date gfx card.......

I've had a go with Race Room and twitchy is an understatement. I'm using the Xbox One controller and I'm trying to adjust the deadzones etc but its very hit and miss (and I know this game is supposed to be used with a wheel) I will go back to it and try again as it looks very good

Adjust sensitivity right down for pad. Plays much better. I've only got 3 speakers and it sounds awesome. The GT3 BMW z4 and Nissan GTR are real nice sounding

Will do mate . Just uploading 6 bloody gb of photos from phone to one drive which is always slow . Before I get there though basically I kept turning down sensitivity and dead zones AND maximum speed in advanced settings until it felt like I wasn't going to crash after 100 meters in a straight line

Have you bought anything in these games? I need to get myself 2 x 4gb first as my 2 x 2gb is running at 93% on pcars and I think 70 odd on race room. Gfx can just about handle it on a mix of low and medium settings so needs to be after memory.........which is what I said last year

Nothing yet for race room, not until I can get the controller settings right.

As for the others I'm scanning Steam deals constantly lol Assetto Corsa is 50% at the moment at 18 and Pcars is 40 Grid Autosprort is 8.50 so tempted to go for that

Pm your steam name @smokinmasta and I'll add you

I've bought Grid Autosport and its very good, really enjoying it.. Its what all the crashers and bangers from the Forza lobbies should be playing because the game encourages it (probably why I like it )

For those racing assetto corsa,

It's worthwhile downloading the plugin from the site,

RSR LiveTiming to Assetto Corsa

Live on screen leaderboards, you can also add friends etc. it's a bit stricter than the penalties system for whether a time is allowed, no hacked times that I can see.
