What game is Skinny Pete playing in El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie?

In El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019), the character, Skinny Pete is seen to be playing what appears to be a driving or racing game, with the HUD disabled. The movie is set in September 2010 as per the Breaking Bad timeline (continues immediately after the final episode of Breaking Bad).



What is the name of this game?

Answer

Putting in a vote for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010). The following video shows the Boulder Desert environment, which seems to show the same road style and graphics:

It seems they’ve managed to turn the HUD off, and have a nose-mounted camera angle from the game.

EDIT: As a note, I realized that NFS: Hot Pursuit was actually released in November 2010, which would be 2 months before El Camino’s events. Could just be an oversight on the producer’s part, but who knows.

EDIT 2: Watch the video from 1:05 on. Pete is definitely not actively playing the “game”, as he turns the stick hard right, and the car on screen turns left.
