    I used to work for a company that made horrible racing titles and called them sims, so no, I don't do that. I do like to play racing games from time to time though ;)

    So, you worked for EA Sports then? [​IMG]

    EA has yet to figure out how to make a good Nascar sim.

    I would have loved to work for EA. The games I worked on will go down in history as some of the worst wastes of shelf space at Walmart.

    I'm not a good enough programmer. I was a tester.

    I actually enjoy the NASCAR sims from EA for the lack of something better ;)

    Right. :rolleyes:

    The last sim that the late, great company Papyrus put out is 3 years old and EA still can't beat it. If you said that over at some of the sim racing boards I'm on, they'd do nothing but laugh at you.
