The virtual world of Grand Theft Auto V is home to a lawless world where reckless driving, stealing, and outright killing often go unpunished. Such a world demands all kinds of spoils, and in the case of exotic cars, there’s no shortage of them in GTA V.

Well, this list of the fastest cars in GTA V should shed some light on the cars that you probably should be looking for when you’re trying to get away from the po-pos.

SnowRunner First Impresions – Making You The God of Trucking

It’s one of those games that puts the world on your shoulders and makes a lot of fun out of it

SnowRunner, the long-awaited squeal to MudRunner, has finally launched, and I have to admit that I’m quite impressed with Saber Interactive has crammed into a game that could have been relatively boring. Going into the game for the first time, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Is it a trucking game or an off-road game? Just how realistic can the terrain management and driving dynamics be? Well, once the game downloaded, I found answers to my questions right away and a whole lot more. This is my first impression of the game and my reasoning behind saying, “you should definitely check it out for yourself.

5 New JDM Cars Added to Gran Turismo Sport Via This Month's Free Update

5 New JDM Cars Added to Gran Turismo Sport Via This Month’s Free Update

Lovers of JDM vehicles should be all over this new car pack

There once was a time when Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) cars were deemed as forbidden fruits for a lot of American buyers. We can blame the Imported Motor Vehicle Safety Compliance Act of 1988 for that, but, in a roundabout way, we can also thank the same law, or at least a small concession within the law that indicated that any car can enter the U.S., fully exempt from federal safety and emissions standards, provided that said car is 25 years old according to the date of manufacture. This concession is important because a lot of the sought-after JDM cars from the ’80s and ‘90s have been finding their way into the U.S. market in recent years. Most of these cars can be bought for $10,000 to $25,000 depending on the model, but for those without that kind of scratch, Gran Turismo Sport is offering a cheaper alternative in the form of a new downloadable car pack made up exclusively of some of our favorite JDM cars. The new pack is a JDM fanatic’s dream come to (virtual) life, and you better believe that I’m one of those people.

Grand Theft Auto VI: What We Know so Far

Grand Theft Auto VI: What We Know so Far

GTA VI is probably going to launch before 2021 and it’s going to be epic, but we don’t exactly know in what ways

Whenever there is news of an upcoming Grand Theft Auto game it is BIG news. The current GTA game has so far grossed $6-billion, which is more than any blockbuster movie in history and it’s still being bought today, nearly six years after it was released. Now we know there is a new installment in the works, GTA IV, and this is what we know about it so far.

It’s likely going to feature a multiple city setup that will see the characters travel from one city to another via airplane. Seamless integration of all platforms is also one of the rumors - you’ll essentially even be able to play the game with the best possible graphics settings on your smartphone via streaming and play with people connecting through different platforms. GTA IV will have several main characters which the player will be able to cycle through to advance the story, however there is a chance that one of these characters is a cop or female... or maybe even both.

This and plenty more will be analyzed below in this frenzied quest to uncover as much about the next GTA as possible, a quest that was sparked back in March of 2018 when the YouTube channel “The Know” uploaded a video containing several bits of information about the upcoming Rockstar Games title. Back then the big news was the possible return of the series to a familiar and fan-favorite location.

The LEGO Speed Champions Expansion for Forza Horizon 4 Is Everything We Thought It would Be

Looks like we’ll be staying on our couches this coming weekend

Dirt Rally 2.0 might be the best hardcore rally simulation game ever

Dirt Rally 2.0 might be the best hardcore rally simulation game ever

The scene is abuzz with talks about it dethroning Richard Burns Rally, the much-loved cult classic

Codemasters decided to give its popular but ultimately arcade style Dirt series a much more simulation-oriented spin when it launched the first Dirt Rally game in late 2015. Now, a sequel to that first Dirt simulation has been released, called Dirt Rally 2.0, and it seems to have impressed many high profile gaming outlets, as well as a series of driving game loving YouTubers. Some even say it could be the best rally game ever, finally surpassing a game that dates back to 2004 (and many avid rally sim fans still swear by it to this day). I am, of course, talking about Richard Burns Rally (RBR), a game that at the time of its launch was considered ahead of its time in many areas.

Forza Motorsport 7 Gets Some New Classic Cars Thanks to the New Barrett-Jackson Car Pack

Time to bring out the vintage and get those classic car juices going
