There’s nothing like being on the road, driving a powerful car and stepping the gas to reach incredible speeds. It’s great to feel the adrenalin and the rush from making an impossible turn and very few things can top the heart-pumping action from a car race. Fortunately, we don’t have to face dangerous paths to make any of those things: we have our PC games! And we have a huge game offer at our disposal with which with can quench our thirst for gasoline. But, where do we begin? There are obvious places to start (Gran Turismo 5 and F1 2010, top games 2010) and there are other not-so-popular titles available to fit our speed needs. I’ll focus on three games that haven’t the popularity they deserve but they’re surely great fun for all the car games’ lovers.
