racing game as a benchmark?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
just curious, how come racing games aren't used as some form of judgement just like Quake 4 or F.E.A.R.? Sure i understand the amount of detail in those games, but have a look at some of the racing games on the market today.

I personally have played NFS: Most Wanted on a GeForce4 MX, a 7600GT, an 8600GT, and even still with the 8800GTX i currently use. Am i just silly for thinking of a racing game being used to compare frames per second? Anyone out there able to think of a few racing games worthy to test a pc with?

You should check out DiRT that game looks quite amazing, although the gameplay was kind of disappointing.
