One of the most attractive aspects a videogame can offer is escapism. Offering the chance to experience things that you just can't get in real life helps to satisfy that whiny inner child's vivid imagination. Take this trailer for Electronic Arts' upcoming racer Need for Speed: The Run for instance. Flying around the tight turns of icy Alpine roads in a Porsche is something few (crazy) people get to experience.
Luckily EA Black Box is here with some shiny new cars and exotic environments to help appease us adrenaline junkies. If you're eagerly awaiting your chance to race across the country in EA's next arcade racer you needn't wait much longer. Need for Speed: The Run will be racing to stores on November 15th.
