VIDEO: Watch someone play a first person shooter with a steering wheel

By 03.19.12

Watching someone play a a first person shooter with a steering wheel controller, in this case the N64 classic Goldeneye, is somewhat strange. But after a few moments, it makes total sense.

Why? Well, moving in early FPSs was pretty much like controlling a car. Not a normal vehicle, obviously, more like a bumper car. One in which you get to also shoot guns (which would make the real thing all that much better).

Too bad the same can’t be done for modern titles, in which looking and moving are clearly independent actions (as you can see above, even the limited aiming provided in GoldenEye is tricky).

But this mod could also work in Doom, Duke Nukem Forever, Quake, and similar titles from that era.
