Of course, you have played driving games before, whizzing stock cars, Indy racers, dune buggies and dirt bikes around all kinds of asphalt and nasty off-road terrain. Even if you own the racetracks and dominate both the machines and all your online competitors, truck driving still will challenge your skills and knock that edge off that king-of-the-virtual-arcade ego. After all, it’s one thing to control and tight and well-tuned low-to-the ground little racing machine. Controlling a heavily laden tractor and trailer is another thing altogether.
