Steering Wheel - Gaming Imitations

Gaming Imitations

Certain game controllers available for arcade cabinets, personal computers and console games are designed to look and feel like a steering wheel and intended for use in racing games. The cheapest ones are just paddle controllers with a larger wheel, but most today's examples employ force feedback to simulate the tactile feedback a real driver feels from a steering wheel. This contributes to steering "feel" and is one of the hallmarks of a "driver's car" or sports car.

Famous quotes containing the words imitations and/or gaming:

    Our vices always lie in the direction of our virtues, and in their best estate are but plausible imitations of the latter.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Sir, I do not call a gamester a dishonest man; but I call him an unsocial man, an unprofitable man. Gaming is a mode of transferring property without producing any intermediate good.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)
