        HAHAAHA! Are you fucking kidding me? Nobody plays racing games with the keyboard. Wow. A 1 or a 0 for gas, brakes, left, and right are just not enough. You need subtlety of control and the ability to have precise amounts of feathering on the gas and brake. This is not an arcade racer where you can just floor it and go all out and expect to stick to the road surface.

          Well, I can only play with a keyboard. Tried a racing game with a controller once (I think it was GRID) and it was horrible/close to impossible for me. Keyboard is fine for me :)
