    There are a lot of older gamers which seems sometimes weird to people, but is pretty logical, since we are from the gaming generation (Atari ST, MSX, Commodere 64, Amiga etc).

    Once you have it, you cannot let it go !

    Which helps me to never complain about a so-called lack of content in a modern game.

    A few years ago, when i added a Facebook button to a GT5 website, i landed on a age stats page on facebook on the website audience, showing a quite older (many in their 40's) than the usual gaming audience.

    My first 'racing sim' lol was TCR woop woop, limited 'tracks' and cars compared to my custom races and track designer in the mud in the back garden with matchbox cars.

    Jam car still makes me think of jam on toast :drool::drool:

    But i search for TCR Box and found some french localized versions:

    and, most notably this one:
    [​IMG]

    "Starsky & Hutch" o_O
    Isn't that The Dukes of Hazzard licensed instead?
    Maybe the work of the same marketing ppl who released the PlayStation V-Rally games under the brand "Need for Speed" in the US.

    But i digress.
