I'm admittedly not much of a gamer, other than the occasional flight sim, but when I came upon this live-action first-person POV promotional video for "Far Cry 4" I had to share it with you.

Forza Horizon 2 Off-Road Gameplay Looks Beautiful, Is The Realism Right?

Here's one of the first off-road gameplay clips from upcoming-shortly Forza Horizon 2. It's visually gorgeous, and I think the physics look just arcadey enough to make the game casually accessible while getting a handle on the floaty feel of fast off-road driving.

What Are The Greatest Off-Road Video Games?

Racing games are a great way to get close to the cars, tracks, and behavior you'd never be able to pull off in real life. But I can't help but feel like the focus usually stays on pavement-bound sports cars.

The 20 Greatest Car Video Games

Our real-life cars are great, but we can't usually use them to catch funky crooks or evil spies, and we can't race them in Formula One — or in 2560 or 1967. Luckily, there's video games! Here's our twenty favorites. » 9/01/09 12:10pm 9/01/09 12:10pm

Auto-Inspiration: The Real-Life Cars Behind Grand Theft Auto IV

It may not have the racing chops of say Gran Turismo 5 Prologue or Midnight Club: Los Angeles, Grand Theft Auto IV is still a big-title game for 2008 (probably the biggest wethinks) with some big-time automotive tie-ins.

Formula 1 Gaming Taking A Vacation?

We have some bad news to those that enjoy getting behind a Formula 1 racer and careening down the track (virtually, that is): it looks as though Formula 1 gaming may be taking a hiatus after a dispute between F1 bossman, Bernie Ecclestone, and Sony, the current F1 license-holder.

MADD Upset Over Drunk Driving In GTA4

For those that haven't turned on a television or viewed any other website in the past 48 hours, the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto IV was released to the masses.
