Farming Seems Pretty Metal!

While you're waiting for me to get off my tucus and post the F1 Quals results, here's something for you to watch.

Ben, your thoughts?  Because to me, it looks like farming is straight out of Warhammer 40K.

1 I haven't played any recent version of Farming Simulator, there are a few big things I noticed: John Deere and CaseIH licensing, with actual models. John Deere used to sell it's own farming simulator, but that was years ago.  Maybe they've already had this, but Farming Simulator usually features a European model of tractor in the advertising.  (Not that John Deere and CaseIH aren't global...they just aren't nearly as dominant in Europe and Russia as they are in the U.S.)

Also: COTTON.  That was cotton, and I've NEVER seen cotton included in any of the modern farming simulators.  It's always corn, wheat, soybeans.

That was a lot of very big equipment farming very small bits of land, but that's normal for farming simulators. The economics are all out of whack.

I have no idea where that guy farms, but that was an eclectic mix of scenery.

They keep showing the farmer steering.  You don't really have to do that very much, anymore.

2 Eff yeah, giant tractors! *headbangs*
...is how I guess I'm supposed to react? I'm equal parts entertained and mystified, here.

3 Would it help to know that it's a fan-made thing?  The music is from the most recent version of DOOM...

4 Though as it turns out, the original version of the trailer isn't all that much different.

5 That does actually make some more sense. Some. I guess there's a fandom for everything, isn't there?
