Like many of you, my first experience with NASCAR was Daytona USA – the arcade version, of course – and that crazy theme-tune that came with it. Unlike many of you, however, my experience with NASCAR doesn’t end there. Some time in the early 2000s as I was sifting through the bargain shelves looking for a game to buy on the cheap, my eyes met with a NASCAR game and as an avid racing fan, I had to have it. Cue disappointment. The cars didn’t control well, the graphics weren’t particularly good and there was no real difficulty to it. It really just felt like holding down the accelerator and turning left every now and then.
