we, the simulation racers, want realism so we can escape the reality of obeying speed limits and traffic laws in our daily cars. we want to enter another reality where we have an accurate digital copy of a real $300,000 car and go balls-out on a accurate digital copy of a real track with all of nature's physics in place. to test real driving skill--or as real as you can get in front of a tv--which is why i have the logitech 900-degree wheel/pedal stup.Like i've said many times before about it..... why would you want realism in a racing game? Don't we play games to get AWAY from reality? And with a lot of the cars they have in games like the GT series.... how do YOU know it's realistic? have you driven every single car in the game, at the speeds that you drive in the game?
I'd much rather play arcade-ish racing games, like the Burnout series. They're just more fun if you ask me.
my first crack at the game was with all assists off and it wasn't very realistic. rubber adhesion was weird. too much grip if you keep it straight, not enough grip if you go sideways, if i remember right. like they wanted to please the racers and drifters. real cars don't feel like they're ice skating.All you have to do, is turn off all the assists...then you get all the ice skating, I mean realism you want!
in a realistic racing game, it just feels right. ask any person who's into them. they well all pretty much agree which games are realistic and which aren't. the fact that everyone can admit that grid has a wierd "ice-skating" or "wax" feel to it and screaming proof that it's physics don't match what we're all used to: reality. you don't have to drive a car to 180mph to say, "okay, so grid is realistic after all." it's all very much tactile, even at lower speeds.Taurus: again.... how do you KNOW it's realistic? Have you driven said $300,000 cars? how about at the speeds in the game? almost certain you haven't. Hell.... rather doubt that the majority of people here have.... or even came close to driving a car remotely that costly. To put it quite simply.... we don't know whether it's 100% realistic or not. All we have is the developer's word to go by at this point.... and they could basically say whatever they please, and people would believe it. For all we know, the only cars that are 100% realistic are the standard cars that might be in the game.
