Arcade mode sounds like it'd help you out there?
I did every single license test in GT1-4, mainly because I felt the need to have to do them, but when it comes down to it I'm not in high school with a lot of free time on my hands, back then I could only afford so many games so a game like GT kept me busy for ages and I had the time to get real good at them, but now I just don't have the time to do time wasting tests I just want to play the game, and the rewind feature makes it more pick up and play.
I'm not chilled? Am i angry or something? Are we going to start this now? OK. I wouldn't say i've been very defensive at all, i've just been trying to kick some knowledge in your direction. I was already active in this thread then you come in with your usual routine of damage control, being so blatant obviously you're going to get called out by someone, and as usual you do get called out and proven wrong. That's not defensive, that's just telling it how it is. But we all know how that turns out: tkd_matt sees good PS3 news, posts in the PS3 exlcusive thread for damage control, get's replied to and usually proven wrong, tkd_matt doesn't like that and sees the replies as attacks since they're from PS3 owners, tkd_matt starts to play the victim and continues until the thread is ruined.
But really you need to stop getting so defensive over your precious GT, everytime I come in and state my disappointment over something (PS3 specs, GT5 lack of features etc), you get all super defensive(you wrote a defense for each thing I said), just face it, not everyone is going to love everything. This is only my opinion, I'm just a fan who expects much more in a sequel(be it hardware/software) I'm sure you will love the game, and you're obviously someone who has the time to put into a game like this, I'm not, so just chill out.
sh*t, i've already played into your trap. I guess i won't reply to you in this thread even though your next post is sure to be a doozy.
