What Is the Best Way to Play a Racing Game - Joypad or Wheel?

Is it stupid to sit in a pretend racing seat and turn a pretend steering wheel to control a pretend car? Yes, of course it is but people spend hundreds of pounds to do it properly. Why? Because it's fun, especially when you're playing a game that's been designed with it in mind, like Gran Turismo 5. But the question is: Do wheels make that much of a difference, or can pads suffice? To find out, GamesRadar asked Codemasters' Paul Jeal, senior producer on F1 2010. (F1 2010, Paul Jeal, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Without a doubt the wheel, I recently picked one up for F1 2010 and obviously GT5.

Take bends easier at higher speeds, sharper bends are easier to get round.

I feel a great improvement with a wheel being used.

@Ve3tro- I'm not sure which wheel you have. But, if you have the Logitech wheel, can it be used on a bed?

What annoyed me was that the Xbox 360 doesn't work with either G25 or G27. I bought one thinking it would and was disappointed to find out otherwise.

Whoa!! Seriously dumb question.

Use a Wheel, pedals, 3 or 6 screen Eyefinity set up with 3D while sitting in a Full motion driving simulator chair and a 7 speaker 7.1 sound set up.

Oh and a hot chick bringing you a cold one between races.
