So here's my dilemma.
I like racing games. Love them in fact. As gaming progresses, and I tire of the regurgitated and often rage-inducing FPS games...I've turned more and more toward racing games. However I'm not a sim nut. I want to race with some buddies, and enjoy myself.
I don't care about the .002 seconds I could save by doing X instead of Y. I enjoy Forza 4 immensely, and have enjoyed the previous games.
Mobil 1 British Rally Championship (PC)
Gran Turismo 2 (PS2)
WRC 2011 (PC)
and I vaguely enjoy the Project CARS game right now. So is it worth investing $150-200 in a decent wheel setup? I don't make the money I used to, and I'm sad to see that the Logitech G27 won't work with Xbox 360...
I could see myself building up a very cheap rig, with a spare car seat. But if I'm not tuning, and doing iRacing, etc., is it worthwhile? I prefer playing racing games in cockpit with manual transmissions, so the G27 is hugely appealing to me.
So for a guy who likes maybe 85% sim racing, and is looking to play a lot of PC racing games in the future - should I invest?
