Need for Speed has gorgeous racing and hilarious FMV

Need for Speed is a game of extremes.

The relaunch of the series features some of the most gorgeous racing we've ever seen, so beautifully realized that it frequently blurs the line between game and film. It also features FMV sequences so campy that they frequently blur the line between film and fever dream.

I subjected my own brother, Griffin, to both of these facets and you can see the results for yourself above. Note: I frontload the video with FMV to antagonize my brother, but I guess now you have to watch it too. Sorry, didn't really think that one through.
