The ideal racing peripheral
In the gaming arena any hardware computer add-ons are called 'peripherals' with many options to upgrade your gaming experience from a hardware perspective. One such device is a steering wheel that connects to PCs for games that involve driving a car of any shape and size from a truck to a sports car. It may not make you look any better but it sure will make you feel cool and immerse you deeper into the game, having you lean into the turns with a tight grip.
Why the steering wheel is more fun
In comparison, a controller of any other kind cannot emulate the drive feel as well as a steering wheel. In this light there are some that also come with a set of pedals for you to be managing the footwork as you would in a car, with a slight variation in the number some have 2 and some 3 pedals. These steering wheels also have a built-in force feedback base which lets you feel every detail while you're racing, such as the road or track's relief, loss of tire grip, braking, bumps, impacts, and more. To make it all the more real there are wheels that are stitched with leather on them to make the feel even closer to a hands-on experience. Or even gear paddles by the steering wheel to change gears like in a Tiptronic car. Not leaving anything behind so the game makes you feel like you are right there inside with all the pixels as they come together and whirl on the screen at speeds you may never achieve in real life on the Nurburgring.
With these PC steering wheels the more you pay the more the quality improves and the extra layers that make it all more real increase, so it is a matter of how much you want to spend even if the beginner level ones are ample enough to get you hooked. Coming with embedded buttons on the wheel to substitute for the ones a controller would normally have, so in case there are any other actions that require buttons you have them at your fingertips.
These steering wheels are one of the best ways to get a full driving experience sitting at home in front of the PC but inside one of your most favourite cars in locations that could be anywhere but there.
