So quality of racing is of no concern? Only new content?
Try playing with a group who race pretty seriously, as in all assists off, 1 hour or longer races etc.
Some people actually enjoy this game for what it gives.....racing.
GT Sport has what, 170 cars?
Iracing, probably less than 80?
Getting rather tired of the "more is better, why aren't they telling us anything" rants.
Wait till it releases, wait for the reviews, then decide.
Day one purchase here due to what I mentioned above, enjoyment of racing.
I, too, enjoy racing. Maybe I don't take it "seriously" but oh well, I find it much more fun with the assists on (and I don't have the time to invest to get "good" and take them off), but have certainly done 1 hour + races!
What we are saying is that there's nothing new being offered to encourage us to get this new release. At least not right away. We enjoy racing on the older iterations, so see no need to get the new one.
Or rather, there is nothing encouraging us to part with our funds before release, is more the point I guess.
They are heavily pushing the preorders (whenever I load up motorsport 6 it takes me to the store where I have to decline preordering 7 before I can start playing - good thing I don't just spam the A button to get through the loading screens and menu without looking ) without, we feel, offering much excitement for doing so. THAT'S the bug - the pushing of the preorders with very little information, up until this weekend.
Yes, it is choice to do so or not, no one is forcing the preorder. It's just frustrating, especially after the letdown of FH3 preorder and the mystery cash-grab of its expansion pass.
It's great that they are catering for you lot who are way more intense than we will ever be. And for PC players, too, it seems.
I guess maybe you can see how those of us who are rather more casual, but have been looking forward to this game and excited for what it might bring us as something new, after all the hypehypehype, might be left feeling a bit deflated and like ...oh.
I haven't quite finished all the series in FM6, and have FM3 and 360 FH2 to work through as well, before considering what I get next
That's wyh it's not a day-1 purchase for me, anyway. As far as I'm concerned, the quality of racing in 6, and 3 too (probably 4 but I don't have it) is great, and I have those, so we're asking, what's the drawcard for the new one? if one can already race a good game, what else is on offer to encourage us to get 7? We're not into the serious multiplayer side of things, so don't need to keep up with the crowd moving to the next one, so really all it leaves is content. That's why NEW content is of concern to us, and of that content, not a gazillion almost identical cars (if you care about the cars, that's great, but I don't - 80 would be fine with me) but new environments, new game modes, new experiences.
I guess the thread does read as a bit of a whinge-fest Horizon 3 just left us feeling let down, and we are pinning our hopes on this one and having trouble accepting that they're moving the dame to a different focus to what we want like how dare they
