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.

Hey Shaun:

I was hoping to participate in the next race and on Simracing System it says it's at Fuji. Which version of Fuji should I download.

I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?

Great review, you've convinced me to buy one of these for my rigsmile

One question, do you think the mounting brackets could be inverted (and swapped left to right) to mount it from the top?
