Japanese Virtual Horse Racing Is Actually A Thing

Are you bored of the standard virtual horse racing? Do you need giant horses with human legs in your life? Well, we might just have the ideal solution.

Japanese Virtual Horse Racing took the world by storm a few years back when the game 'Japan World Cup 3' was discovered by the YouTube channel LetsPlay Community.

You basically "play" by betting on a computer-generated horse race and the results are absolutely bonkers.

Featuring jockeys on dolphins, yeti's and horses literally doing the Charleston dance, this bizarre 'game' was released in 2011, but still finds itself being reviewed on YouTube to this day.

Just check out this review from the LetsPlay Community and witness the madness behind this crazy virtual horse racing.

Go and grab yourself a cup of tea and a biscuit. You won't regret it.


One reviewer on Amazon says how the game 'startles, baffles, and entertains' with every new race:

"Japan World Cup 3" is a continuation of the insane pseudo-game that startles, baffles, and entertains with every new race. It's not an interactive game, but I can totally understand people betting on outcomes on the first viewing." they write.

"Of course one of the pieces of genius in this series is that conventional wisdom of picking winners is impossible, though I was a big fan of the Trojan Horse in this version."

Is this just the most bizarre thing, ever?
