You may quite enjoy a number of different channels of YouTube programming. No need. All that you must watch is this little show of two dudes messing with a very realistic (surrealistic?), somewhat glitchy graphics engine. Welcome to Car Boys.

If you have watched such shows as Chris Harris Does The Cars, MotorFace, The Drived, Irregular Cars, or Luv2VlogMySupercar, you may have thought you’ve seen all that the automotive Internet has to offer. Nah. Car Boys, man. It’s about Car Boys.


On the face of it, it’s just two Polygon staffers reviewing It’s not so much a game in the modern sense quite as much as it is a distant echo of the ‘90s shareware era. At least that’s how it feels to me. You have a big environment. You have a bunch of cars and ramps and cannons and whatever else, and you have a very realistic physics engine that will deform a car in its entirety.


Sometimes this engine breaks.

Mostly we just watch our two hosts, Nick and Griffin, test the game’s limits and share with us small moments of beauty in this world.

I don’t know if that will embed the whole playlist, but you can just go right to it here if it doesn’t work. There are ten episodes thus far. They come out every Thursday. They’re about 10-20 minutes long. They rule.


Watch it.

(Hat tip to Max Read for reminding me that I should have written about this like a month ago when I first found this channel I don’t remember how!)
