Are automotive enthusiasts a dying breed? It sadly seems that's the case.
The makers of the "Forza Motorsport 4" believe that a video game is exactly what's needed to help true petrol heads who've been feeling the pain of increased environmental laws, safety restrictions, traffic cameras, and clogged highways. In a new trailer entitled "Endangered Species," Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson lends his voice to tell us automotive enthusiasts that we're a dying breed. And he may be right. The video shows a guy stuck in traffic who soon sees an Aston Martin DB9 just waiting to rescue him.
Through various hurdles, the driver attempts to outrun the forces that are supposedly killing our kind. In the end, he simply can't beat the real-world system.
However, with the help of "Forza Motorsport 4," we can now transfer this automotive enthusiasm to our living rooms. It'll be on Xbox 360 on October 11th in North America and October 14th throughout Europe. In the meantime, check out the live-action video. For us, however, there's simply no replacement to the real thing.
