A video game where the user controls a vehicle in a real-world or fictional setting or track is known as a "car game," "car simulator," "driving game," or "racing game."
In automobile games, players may choose between an overhead perspective of the track and all of the vehicles,
a third-person view of their car and the cars around it, or a first-person view from within the vehicle.
In the image, a player is competing against other players in the first-person racing game Project CARS.
In the majority of automotive games, you compete in races on a track or through cities against other player-controlled vehicles or NPCs.
To assist users learn how to operate various cars or pieces of equipment, there are even more realistic driving simulators available, such as Truck Simulator for operating semi-trucks.
In more inventive car games, like Rocket League, participants drive their vehicles onto a big soccer field and attempt to kick a ball into the goal of the opposite team.
