There's this great game that I bought the day it was released, and it's called American Truck Simulator. Basically drive semi trucks and haul stuff around the country, but is very fun. As of right now there is California and Nevada, and Arizona expected very soon.

There is also a European version and - if you want to try driving on the 'wrong' side of the road - I think there is a British version as well. I've seen them but having spent 20 odd years driving trucks of all shapes and sizes it never appealed to me enough to buy a copy.

Britian is included in Euro Truck Simulator 2. Not sure about 1.

Yes, I have played ETS2, although the scenery does not vary much.

Looks like a cool game. I showed it to some real truck drivers.

One wanted to know why they didn't have an International or Mack truck.

Another wondered if the simulation would include a scenario of traffic on the interstate being at a standstill because of a major wreck up ahead and there is no way to get around it or having to navigate through a multi-miles longs interstate construction or drivers of passenger vehicles getting nervous when a big truck is near them or drivers of cars cutting to close in front of them without realizing it takes a big rig longer to slow down and stop than it does a car.

If my dad were alive, he would say "I don't need a game. I lived it for the 40 years I drove a truck".

Those still driving said "I live it every day. Don't need a game about it".

I am sure there are truckers who would like the game, or at least try it to see exactly how realistic it is.

I know that cars in Euro Truck Simulator 2 almost always turn in front of you. I think they are worried about your brakes.  :wacko:

Haha. Yeah, they're slowly but surely expanding the map. The reason they only have 3 trucks right now is because of licensing issues, they need to get the licenses sorted out with the truck manufacturers before they can legally put them in-game.
