Anybody here drifts (or any motorsports) in real life? How does drifting in real life compare to drifting in games and which game do you feel is the most accurate? I know games cant simulate the weight of transition, the sense of speed or the g-forces against ones body but does any game come close?

I have semi decent p.c, ps4, xbox 360 and a logitech g920.

Dirt 3. From the 300hp awd rally machines to rwd stadium trucks, it has the best.

I thought need for speed prostreet had fun drifting mechanics, but I've never intentionally drifted in my life.
But I didn't put my hair in a pony tail for nothing so if I'm going home alone I'm not going at all.

Dirt 3 has gymkhana mode, its like, 100% fully locked differentials with bald tires. People complained that it was too loose and sloppy. So Dirt 4, gymkhana mode, the cars feel waaay heavier, making it harder to break the tires loose, and hold a consistent drift is harder, I guess 4 has the more realistic drifting in a car but they have an easy mode that makes it like..... Mario Kart?

Also it most games you can adjust the differential from being Open, limited slip, locked, maybe even 2 way or 3 way

Not the most realistic, but the most fun drifting was Midnight Club 3
Partying is such sweet sorrow

Have you ever done any high performance driving? My buddy who does amatuer autocross claims that sim racing in his spare time helps a bit on track. I did some research and some f1 guys spend time sim racing too. Im amsuming it would help understanding drifting. Im considering starting a project drift car. I only have drag racing experience and drifting is another animal.

I think it helps if you have a simulator setup with a racing chair, steering wheel, pedals, etc. If you just use a controller it won't help.

No, just ridden passenger in some cool cars. Ive driven some high power sand rails and off road toys though, where a stab of the throttle gets you sideways, and you control it by feathering the throttle. Drifting on asphalt can be vicious compared to loose dirt and soft sand. On asphalt slides, Ive only been a passenger, and the transition between grip, and slide can be really rough and unpredictable.
