Diversion Games - What else do you play?

As a sim racer I have always found that when the real life racing season ends that sim racing looses some of its enthusiasm and drivers and we also get an off or slow season.  It is this time of year that I go back to my gaming routes and find myself playing some no sim racing games.  That is until the Daytona 24 Hour race comes and with it a new season of racing.

This off season I found myself gravitating towards some other games, non driving games, and I thought that I would share them with you.  If you are a sim racer, I wonder, what games do you play in the off season or when you are not driving?

In this video I share with you my top picks of my favorite non sim racing games that got me through the off season.  Those games are World of Warships, Planet Coaster and Farm Simulator 2017.

I like War Thunder, it has some real decent triple screen graphics and sound for flying the airplanes. I prefer the bombers at Arcade Battle rating, but some of the radial engined fighters are a lot of fun too. Other than that, I am an avaid truck driver driving a lot in American Truck Simulator and European Truck Simulator 2. They even have some really good multiplayer for both games, the ETS2 has a Winter mod built in, it looks like Winter with snow on everything and falling. Both games even have a short range "cb radio" that works in line of sight, you just set the microphone in the game and then it goes to a hot mike and people can hear you, but if you get out of sight, you can't hear each other. Now I wish other games would get the technology and incorporate it.

Okay 20 minutes is too short. Make the races an hour. Can you make it w/o pitting? I don't know, but with or w/o pitting it would be fun.

Thanks for the breakdown of your driving next to the best of your race. This comparison was an eye opener to how I should be driving compared to how I am actually driving.  You keep referring to trail breaking I'm relatively new to this new IRacing,(was an original owner of the first Nascar and had spend hours upon hours doing it.)  And I just don't get how it helps or hurts your racing style, I'll keep watching thanks for the video's and keep going fast.

While I can't imagine wanting an Hyundai interior, it is very well done and looks incredible. Well done.
