Interesting there seems to be no sim racers here. The racing forums are full of folks complaining of no graphics cards for VR.

    I know it's not a simulation racer exactly, but I have a few hundred hours in Forza Motorsport 7.

    Fast cars and driving - close enough. I spend most of my time in Assetto Corsa and Raceroom, sims but not going to knock Forsa at all.

    Agree here Raceroom is cool. Dirt Rally not bad either,  but just my opinion.

    I really like raceroom, but there are rarely many North American server that are populated. The European servers have a lot of traffic but only until late morning left coast time.

    I tend to do the Lakeview run more than track racing lately.  Seems more fun to me.

    There are a few Sim racers in the forums. I have enjoyed the Project CARS games. Haven't had time to try Raceroom, or PC 3. There are more people than that wanting to buy a newer series GPU@ reality based prices. Hopefully it will pick up, though it may be a while. :(

    Always been curious to try VR racing games. I heard some people don't like them though?

    I guess it involves in multiple purchases for that VR experience to be good. Also, I don't think it can fully utilize the VR capacities, I mean you are still going to use the steering wheel and pedals, the VR will be just for the googles to be more immersive. I think it also depends on the framerate and the rendering of the side windows and mirrors, to make it fully immersive.
     
    Also, it will require chairs and stuff, a lot of expenses.
    The VR really needs to have more than 60HZ for a good experience.

    You got a point, but would be something interesting to still try.

    I really need a new graphic card,  but at these prices it's going to be awhile.  That's IF I can even find one.

    Current 1080 with slight oc is running fine with HP reverb G2 in VR. Raceroom, assetto corsa, automobilista 1 and 2, and project cars 2 all work well. Assetto Corsa Competizione on the other hand is a beast in VR. Forums have folks complaining about 3090s not being able to run at very high settings. Still I'm in the queues for a new card, we'll see. Sims in VR are great tho, like the F1 series but without VR support it just doesn't cut it any more.

    Yeah, someone feels bad for the motion sickness. I wear glasses, so not very interested in it!

    Some people do have problems with motion. Navy underway time solved that for me. I also wear glasses, frames allowed me to use Samsung and HP headsets, have prescription insets for my G2 now and they work great.

    I suck at racing games lol.  I just keep to single player stuff like Grid or Dirt ;)
    Although I will admit a wheel/shifter/pedals are a big plus!

    Interesting there seems to be no humans here.  I haven't verified that, but why not just make a random claim?

    Raceroom!

    I have been driving the ranked servers. Good competition but there seems to be few populated servers after late evening in Europe (I'm west coast US)

    I have a mixture. Thrustmaster TS-PC, older Ferrari F1 wheel and Fanatec clubsport v3 pedals. Working out well, really like the pedals.

    I would like to upgrade to a nice Fanatec set-up. That has to be a blast with your "monitor"...

    I really enjoyed Forza Horizon 4 but that's the opposite of a simulator..
     
    Tried some DiRT Rally but I was soooo bad, not even sure if you should be using a keyboard. 
    I'd like try Project Cars one day but I guess I should avoid the third installment? It has mixed reviews on Steam.
     
    Oh and not really racing but Euro Truck Simulator 2 is super relaxing!

    Project Cars 3 has been panned pretty badly by the sim crowd. AC, ACC and raceroom are my main drives with some automobilista 1 and 2. Have F1 2019 and project cars 2 but rarely toch them.

    Codemasters is a mixed bag when it comes to the sim crowd. They compulsively put out a new sim every year in most of their product lines instead of having any longevity into their brands. Simpit builders need longevity in a title because they're investing significant time and money into a platform. If the dev is even casual about it's platform, it's hard to be taken seriously. It's a shame Project Cars got bought out by Codemasters.

    I was a fan of project cars 1 and 2 but 3 i still haven't played yet(mainly because of the bad reviews)
    The dirt series was also very nice.

    Didn't help that Codemasters were bought out by EA.
