Everyone keeps talking about Gran Turismo 5, but it'd be a terrible idea to overlook Need for Speed: SHIFT, the newest and most innovative installment in the long-running and critically acclaimed franchise. At the GamesCom event in Germany, EA showed off a brand new trailer for this extremely promising title and you just gotta be impressed. For those of you who are obsessed with realism and racing simulators, GT5 will be a must-own, but this cockpit view in SHIFT could be downright amazing. If done correctly, your palms should sweat and your fingers should tighten; it'll be totally intense.
