Racing games are divided into categories like dirt racing, death racing, motoracing, dirt and burn racing, bike championships, skiing competitions etc. People addicted to these games get excited the moment they see tracks and highways. Even if it is only a simulation, driving on these roads and tracks at a very high speed gives the player a sense of freedom and thrill. This feeling stays with them for a long time, even after they have logged out.

Not only are these games entertaining, they also help the players to be become more alert and teach them how to react favorably to situations in everyday life. This makes them better drivers on the roads in real life. Of all the ones currently available, car games, especially on 3D, have the most appeal. They make the player feel every bump, every curve and all the ups and downs of the road. They might even have obstacles placed on the tracks, which can cause the player to take a diversion at a very high speed.

Some of these 3D games make the player drive a vehicle at extreme speed so that he is able to go to a safe place within a specific time. Others make the driver learn to drive and park an 18-wheeler to get the license. In some, the player has to drive and control a car without brakes while other versions let the player enjoy an extremely high speed ride and tests the player’s control of the vehicle.

The only way to succeed in these car games, and to move from one level to another is to successfully control the car while at the same time maintaining a speed high enough to get to the first position. It takes skill and a lot of practice, thereby giving the players reason to continue playing these games virtually non-stop.
