Should I buy Euro Truck Simulator?

#1 Edited by phoenix6153 (52 posts) -

so, this is really dumb. i've watched vinny and drew play euro truck simulator a couple of times and it looked pretty good. now, with the steam sale, it's only $6.50. should i do this?

Sure? It seems to be pretty fun if you like driving a truck around.

Don't be afraid to like Euro Truck Simulator.

@phoenix6153: please post threads like this in the appropriate forum instead of lumping it into general - also I'm changing your topic title to something not so vague. Thanks.

I was thinking about it but I'm not sure how long the appeal will last for me, plus I have a huge backlog and just bought a vita today. Also I think it's way more fun watching Vinny play rather than play it by myself, not saying it won't be fun but Vinny just adds that extra special something.

Surprisingly fun, however you are just driving a truck around ... I also have a G27 so maybe that also adds more appeal?

I would say to get the 2nd one. Not sure how the first one holds up as I haven't played it, but the 2nd one was a nice surprise to me. After watching the quick look of it I bought it on a GMG sale, and the combo of driving and RPG mechanics in the game is surprisingly fun.

It is surprisingly fun. You'll certainly find your money worth it if you just let the game grow on you.

Get the demo from their website. Maybe steam also has it? I tried the demo and that was enough for me personally.

The first one is okay but the second one is the one to get. I can't speak for others but personally I find it better if you've a steering wheel to play it with. While it's not a game I'll label as fun, it's pretty relaxing and it's a good game to play with if you just want to cruise to whilst listening to podcasts or music.

so i've been playing it for the last few days and it is surprising relaxing. i've really enjoyed it so far. only problem is that i need to get a wheel to do it properly. also, i feel like i'm getting a lot of speeding fines when i'm not going super fast...o wells, can't complain too much. it's really enjoyable. thanks

I wish I had a Drew-like setup for this game, as I feel like I'm missing an integral part of the experience when using a keyboard or controller.
