I'm Like, Drivin'.
I don't have much to say about that game where you race and smash things up that hasn'tÃ‚Â already been said. It's great fun to finally be able to take those turns wide, crushing another racer into a concrete abutment, and not having to apologize. While playing Project Gotham Racing 2 on Live, a discussion would inevitably occur regarding everyone's definitions of "clean racing". It was all so much applesauce, because the fact was, we were playing a videogame that didn't much punish you when you redirected the course of another into a guardrail, whether intentional or not. No matter how eloquent and persuasive your defense of "clean racing", somebody was still going to make a Ferrari sandwich out of you. And when that happened, you had better be hosting the race, because nobody else is really going to care when you start whining. Now, thanks to EA's little racer, not only am I no longer subjected to whiners getting tapped on their bumper, but I can exact my revenge when I'm the victim. And I assure you, I am always the victim. Of course, this is all pending one's ability to actually play the game on Live.
In the forums I made this joke where I said "Challenge Everything? Indeed. More like Everything's a Challenge!" Hahahaha. Get it? Did you see how I flipped the script there? Oh man. Priceless, right? If you guys want to use it, I'm totally cool with that.
