Advances in computer, Internet, and virtual reality technology are impacting racing horse games too.
Once computer racing horse games were strictly for children. Now they're mature enough to satisfy even the most hardcore horse racing enthusiast, with complete customization capability and betting features. The leaders in Internet racing horse game technology provide you with an experience not only comparable but in many ways superior to what you can get at a real track, albeit without the, excuse the expression, aromas. From the aesthetic point of view, though, being able to experience actually riding the horse beats squinting through field glasses in cold anytime.
What can you expect now with racing horse game packages available online?
First, free racing action. No need to pay for play. Indeed, you can expect prizes, everything from laptops and iPods to free visits with top jockeys, maybe even a trip to the Kentucky Derby.
Second, not only solo but tournament play with other players. Gee, ain't the online community great?
Third, hi-tech immersive simulation. Why settle for lame Flash games or buy expensive console sports action games for PlayStation, Xbox, or Wii when you can own free via the Internet the most graphically intense 3D full-screen racing horse game available?
Fourth, configurability, including choice of past champion horses like Seattle Slew, Seabiscuit, Man o'War, etc., or even designer or fantasy horses, along with a choice of racetracks, such as Churchill Downs, Pimlico, Hialeah, Hollywood Park, etc., and a choice of racing surfaces. Experience the thrill of being the jockey while betting and even training your favorite horse with your racing horse game.
Fifth, ease of use. It won't take a rocket scientist to play. Most times you can just use the four arrow keys to control your horse. But don't underestimate the power of the Horse - racing horse game, that is. The simulation accuracy is so high that real jockeys and trainers have taken to them to fine-tune their own performances. Real races haven been rerun and, no surprise, the same 1-2-3 finish obtained. That's because every key aspect of the horse is simulated, on a stride by stride basis, along with the horse's energy reserves and running preferences, back, middle, or front of the pack.
Sixth, long-term relationships. There's a huge and growing international community of racing horse game players, who love to network and establish their prowess at jockeying, betting, and horse breeding. It beats Facebook friends who have nothing in common with you other than maybe liking the same rock video.
Seventh, lucky seven, the knowledge that real horses are never used, and aren't risked to injury just for sport. Yes, humanity is becoming more civilized in its treatment of our dumb friends.
