Truth: All driving experiences are expensive. When you're driving high-performance vehicles and taking hot laps on pro tracks, there's no way around it. But there is one option that doesn't require reaching to the depths of your bank account or shipping yourself accross the country to get there.

It comes via of the world's most beloved game franchises, Need for Speed. The series just launched a refreshed version of Most Wanted—the Gamecube version back in the day was awesome, if that says anythinga shiny new game in which the cops are just as big of a concern as the tire-burning rivals of yours as you race around the town the game in set in (a fictional city based on a composite of both downtown Boston and Pittsburgh). If you really want to take it up a notch, Need for Speed: Most Wanted is best experienced by going all out and pairing it with a Playstation Move Racing Wheel. While it'll set you back a few extra bucks, it's a small price to pay for a top-notch racing experience in the middle of your living room.
