Default any good driving games out?

i want some new games for my lappy (see sig). i firstly want a good driving game. i feel like a realistic one. i think games like the getaway for ps2 is good, because you can drive around london and stuff. i dont think theres any like that for pc though i just want a good realistic game that will run on my laptop. any ideas?

It`s an older game, I`m unsure on Vista compatibility, but it is still a great game.

Midtown Madness 1 is based in Chicago and you can drive anywhere, also do races, etc.
Midtown Madness 2 has San Francisco and London modes and you do the same as 1.

Plus there is a huge modding community with extra cars, cities, etc. that are really easy to install into the game. I recommend it. The graphics aren`t real good, because its an older game, but it is cheap to purchase on eBay or elsewhere (unsure if Microsoft still sells it, though).

What operating system are you running?

Thinking of it, you could always just play Grand Theft Auto and not do the missions if you wanna drive around. San Andreas is huge, and if you get it for PC you can install a modification that will unlock all of the cities so you can drive around.

NFS: Carbon is good. It's racing, but you can drive around as well. That would be on top of my list.

Going along with the San Andreas idea, maybe The Godfather?

I haven't played it by GTR2 is supposed to be real good for the PC. Game play should be more realistic compared to Need For Speed.

Here some reviews:

TrackMania Nations is a free game, supposed to be pretty decent from what I hear.
