Post Car Wars: EA Announces Need For Speed Rivals



The psychology of being inside a car is kind of fascinating ' in a twisted, human-limits-revealing sort of way. We tend to stop viewing our fellow road-hogging compatriots as people, preferring instead to focus on the galloping four-wheeled colossi in front of us. Other drivers become objects, impediments, enemies. Have you ever had one of those moments where you're honking and raging, and then you finally pass the person ahead of you and briefly see their face? 'Oh god,' I often think. 'They look so upset. Did I do that? To another person? That's ****ed!' But I keep doing it anyway, because I'm in a soulless metal shell, and so are they. That, I figure, is why street racing games are never about anything other than competition, rivalry, and sticking it to the po-lice. It's so easy to hate a car, run it off the road, and laugh. Need For Speed Rivals' title, then, strikes me as weirdlyredundant, in its own way.
