By being the best at what it does. It’s an amazing open world racing game that’s done incredibly well. It’s also tons of fun.

Probably a decade or so ago.

But I really love when “games” are creating realistic or immersive interactive worlds even if it isn’t necessarily “fun”.

Examples include Flight Simulator, RDR2, Death Stranding, TLOU2.

These are great experiences where the main focus is engagement, not necessarily “fun”.

It’s also being given away for a $1. That might have a little something to do with it. Fun game and all though. Having a blast

You are absolutely right. They look about as good as OG Xbox One NPC's. It is jarring to look at all of the details, and then see the NPC's!
