Driving lessons are expensive, right? If a PS4/Xbox One game was released that you could use to practice your driving in VR or just on screen, would you buy it? Steerings wheel and pedals would be included in a bundle.
It would be a great, cost effective alternative to IRL driving lessons!
What do YOU think?
I mainly played Euro Truck Simulator 2 on it, and despite racking up hundreds of hours on the game, my driving IRL was still poor in my first few lessons. I probably picked up some nasty habits too, tbh.

Slightly old thread but City Car Driving is the best game to practice manoeuvers if you have a G27 or similar kit; helped me a lot (practically nailed my turn in the road/parallel parks by doing it on here over and over).
ETS2 was more of my wind down fun driving game, plus CCD on free-drive move punished you for some weird things and the cars had an unrealistic amount of power (like every car is literally some kind of godtier turbo and you can do 70 in 2nd gear). I felt ETS2 was better at teaching me to use my mirrors and learning lanes on a motorway.
Games do help a lot and in a fun manner; I attribute a lot of my pass to those two games; but I wouldn't use them in place of a lesson anyday. ETS2 though; whilst being a truck-based game is simply outstanding for learners when played in manual with a H shifter.Last edited by nevershear; 27-11-2017 at 14:13.
