So you're a hotshoe in the virtual world, eh? Think you can take the heat when it's not happening on a couch with a bag of Doritos nearby? Can you handle real-world g-forces and the threat of bodily harm?
Maybe you can. Maybe not. The team at Viagame took a crack at finding out if one Swedish gamer has the mettle to take on a real racer in the real world. But not like you might think.
Instead of putting them both in real race cars on track, they put them both in the same car--and gave the gamer a sim to drive. As you might expect, this provided some unique challenges for both drivers.
