For fans of racing, especially on PC, experience is crucial, sometimes even more than the quality of the graphics; and the more authentic and immersive the better.
When it comes to drowning one’s senses in the world of racing, buying the latest titles and possibly even investing in the highest quality gaming system isn’t enough to create that most immersive experience; you are going to need a PC steering wheel.
Precluding the sting of the wind whipping across your face and the odd jealous looks, gaming steering wheels are designed to provide individuals the most realistic driving simulation possible.
Of course before you can fully immerse yourself into a racing game, you are going to need the best gaming steering wheel available; steering wheels are a rather diverse product and will vary depending on the features on offer, design and even customization options, with some of the best gaming steering wheels on the market including the following:
-Logitech G25- Logitech is a leader in all things game related and has been known to produce some of the best products for improving the gaming experience. Logitech’s G25 is fairly expense; at $300, it is purposed towards only the most ardent racing enthusiasts, with a wheel offering 900 degrees of rotation and dual motor force feedback.
The device uses a USB port to connect with a PC and will include a six speed shifter. Clipping comfortably onto one’s desk, the G25 is highly popular among gamers.
-Genius Twin Wheel F1- The twin wheel is the racing wheel for the financially challenged. Available for less than $50, the wheel includes force feedback mechanisms that produce vibrations in the case of collisions, a D-pad (with four action buttons) and a brake and acceleration unit. Rather than a gear stick, the product uses wheel mounted paddles which do little to detract from the racing experience.
-VRX Pro Series- if your only interest is the best racing experience possible, no matter the financial requirements, then you do not need to look further VRX’s array of products, whose Pro series takes Logitech’s G25 wheel and compliments it with a racing seat with its own suspension and powerful speakers for added effect.
Along with three screens for better peripheral vision, you are going to have to part with several thousand dollars before partaking in the VRX Pro experience; yet most customers will attest to the product being worth every penny.
-Logic3 TopDrive GT Wheel- this gaming steering wheel includes an acceleration and braking pedal unit, a small gear stick on the right on the wheel, vibration feedback and steering sensitivity that can be adjusted to suit different tastes. At $70, the TopDrive GT wheel is compatible with PC, PS2 and PS3, and will include a relocation button.
-Thrustmaster Rally GT wheel- this product includes a set of three pedals, force feedback mechanism, five axis wheel and even a belt driven gear system, as well as a full size gear stick. The Thrustmaster guarantees one of the most realistic driving experiences ever, with the configurations for the wheel and pedals easily adjusted to contend with different preferences. With a price tag of $130, some customers have been known to complain about how pricey the Thrustmaster is, even while failing to deliver a performance that could be described as perfect.
