Gas Guzzling - Even NASCAR games make you use tire gauges

From the article: "The NASCAR '09 experience gets a little closer than ever to mimicking the oval-driving sport, and this includes -- no, I'm not kidding -- keeping your tires properly inflated to the correct pressure. In fact, you tune up your car, tinker with your horsepower, maintain your tires and sleek up the aerodynamics so that your gas guzzler rides faster, smoother and more fuel efficient.

You can also play as any major driver on the circuit, from Dale Earnhardt Jr. and beyond, while the host of the game is Jeff Gordon, who was filmed in high-definition so video of Gordon pops up from time to time to give you talking points.NASCAR '09 is well done, but it is often dull, because like all "NASCAR" titles and NASCAR itself, you just drive around and around these tracks, always turning left, left, left.

Huh. Isn't that funny? Someone should tell those NASCAR Republicans we keep hearing about that they should be turning right, right, right." (NASCAR 09, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

you could manipulate tire pressures in about every nascar game since the beginning of time, it has nothing to do with the environment changing tire pressure effects a cars handling

and fuel efficiency is important in racing because everybody gets the same amount, the guy who is more efficient has a better shot at winning

this article is extremely stupid, stop trying to inject more useless politics into meaningless video games
