    You forgot the part where if you're slower that the car in the lead, God gives you a magic boost in order to catch up with them which ends not long after you pass them. At this point, the person behind inherits this extra speed, and the cycle continues.

    Fantastic article. How about when your running 30 pedestrians over in a regular car like in GTA? In real life I would think your radiator would break and would blow your engine after about 5 full grown people. Maybe 10.

    This is why I love you guys at gamesradar. Every individual slide of this article made me lol.

    GamesRadar features always the best. I love arcade racers like Burnout Revenge so I am clearly against any sense of realism in racing games. I like my traffic like pillows and my car like an invincible brick.

    You forgot to mention blue shells. I was terrified of those when I first started driving.

    Great article, I honestly feel shame at the number of times I've thrown a car off a stupidly high jump in a game and yet never questioned the actual consequences of it. Just like the article says, so long as you land on your wheels, it's totally fine. It never crosses my mind just how damned absurd it is. I would like to say that Gran Turismo did a good job at reminding me of reality, but that would also be a lie. Ramming is a good strategy even there. I can't count how many times I've gotten round a tricky corner simply by scraping up the edge of another car on the inside. And there are no implications at all! It also takes the "cars are easy to destroy" point in the complete other direction; they're completely fudging impervious! It still makes me laugh.
