GT Sport players will wake up to a new patch this morning. It’s the second update in the last eight days and, as expected, arrives to fix some small issues.
Is it just me or does it seem like racing games like gt and Forza are starting not to be as much of an impact like back in the day when GT games use to sell 10 million plus easily? Just seems like people want more than just a real racing simulator nowadays.
Gt sports has sold quite well and has stayed in top 10 -20 range since launch. But I agree it's due to other sim racers flooding the market too Forza has had too many releases in my opinion
Yep, Forza feels over saturated, GT seems to take to long and has had to many mishaps with its last few releases. need for speed... nuf said. There are just a lot that are disappointing or not innovating. Funnily enough the one i have had most fun with and thought was going in a good direction for racing games but got the most shit was Driveclub. The game was stylish, the content was packed (after a while) and the online worked great (after a while) the concept of that game was brilliant.
I had a blast with Driveclub, and I normally only touch more sim oriented stuff. Still plan to get the bikes expansion someday.
Sad to say that motorsport in general is going down the same path. This year Toyota is the only manufacturer competing in LMP1 at Le Mans. Mercedes is pulling out of DTM. Just my opinion, but I can't stand Formula E.
I'm racing currently A/S ranking on gt sport but however much I like it, when the daily race drops on suzuka or nurbergring and a few others I find I just can't go ahead and race them and quit for a day I'm 40 now and been on racing games and going to race tracks since I was around 10 yrs old and these real world tracks just bore the hell out of me now. The other day I needed to claw back some HD space and looked at deleting Drive club as I've not played since GT sport released, loaded it up first to make sure I was doing the right thing, and after the shock of 30 fps my eyes adjusted and I was hooked all over again with the well designed made up circuits and the theatre of the driving physics And I think it's the same with xbox owners as in they look forward to the next Horizon than they do to the circuit version.
I was introduced to racing by my parents from an early age. Oulton Park and some rally in deep woods are my earliest memories. Pretty sure I lost a Star Wars figure in sand dunes at the side of the Oulton Park track. I could even guesstimate at the location. For real world circuits, some I like, some not. Having said that, I love Suzuka to drive, but hate Motegi (simply to drive, not factoring in human competition).
GT/forza7 is boring as hell that's why. Horizon is the future.
