There are quite a few popular games that are becoming popular with multiple monitors.  It’s pretty much a given though, that the most popular game to play on multiple monitors is Microsoft’s Flight Simulator X, which is a real world flight trainer that can be played by anyone, including a novice.  What’s so cool about FSX is that it has many real aircraft, so often new pilots will learn the basics of the cockpit on FSX, long before they ever set foot in a real plane or jet.  Using 3 or more monitors to play FSX creates an ultra real experience, which is why multiple monitors is so popular with this game.

Another fairly popular game that’s played on multiple screens is iRacing.com.  Again, it’s a simulator and has practical application in the real world.  In fact, it’s so realistic that some of the best-known drivers in NASCAR and Indy use iRacing.com to train when they aren’t able to get to a real track.  The tracks within iRacing are accurate down to the millimeter, which makes it’s a super effective tool for new drivers, or drivers that want to learn a new track.  It’s a great game and lots of fun for anyone though; you don’t have to be an actual racecar driver to love it.  Most of the gamers and racecar drivers that love iRacing have a dual monitor or better setups because they create a more realistic environment.
