Sim racing is so accurate nowadays that you may as well be behind the wheel of the real deal.

But computer cockpits haven’t always been so realistic. Remember the grainy, pixelated picture of the 1994 edition of The Need for Speed? How about the shaky Colin McRae Rally from 2005? Fast forward another decade and the GRID: Autosport of 2014 starts to feel much more like a legitimate onboard. Meanwhile, the likes of Automobilista 2, released last year, are insanely authentic, and definitely deserves a double take.
