GT in game controls are easy to access like T.C and brake balance, the trees are made from minecraft but the overall feel is it's Gran Turismo.

Edited that for you Jim original link wasn't working so found it on your YT channel, are alternate camera views available ?

Stiff competition now surely, GT, PC2, F1 and now GTSport.

Nice one Tej, PC2 is rubbish tbh, I've been testing it for ages now. It has all the bugs of the first, the worst being controller calibration.

I raced in the Formula Gulf race a few weeks ago at the Nurburgring in our Pcars league had to keep recalibrating the wheel, I'm sure the time it arrives, sure PSGL could possibly do a league or a few events for it like we previously have.

Shame about PC and Asetto Corsa with all the add ons, knocks the price right up, are you testing it on PC like Grumpy does.

Yeah, it has so much potential but lacks the basics. No point looking good if it feels all wrong.

I think GT sport handles really well in comparison. The T300 is plug in and play and has full support this time round.

I'd be happy with that if the menu screen and time it took to make a lobby is improved, historically it's always been an issue.

having had another play on GT sport again today and having a go at tracks that have right hand corners my view of the game has changed. Braking is much trickier and more of an art, If you turn even slightly the wheels will lock and you'll run wide. The cars feel heavier and the wheel starts to load up when going around corners. The oval i drove before literally feels like a different game compared to driving at willow springs, for the better imo.

Also i really like the cockpit view now, the camera seems to have been raised a little and i think it's much more useable than previously.

Interesting view everyone. I didn't get a beta invite, as many know, because Kaz didn't deem me worthy. Git.

My worry worry with GT and GT Sport going forward is that they have made next to no real improvement with physics etc. and the general gameplay, I mean, it's 2017.  Project CARS had many faults, like inexcusable online bugs like GT, but they are absolutely trying to push things.

What has GT really done in 10 years other than inflate Kaz's ego.

A lot of opportunity with the game, BUT AN AWFUL LOT OF OPPORTUNITY FOR MEDIOCRITY, as usual.

INNOVATE KAZ!!

Being a bloke of 46 now its been 20 years since i first played GT, way back when most of this site weren't even born. It gripped me, sucked me in. I played it constantly, even bought my first wheel after a year just for GT. Nothing had been before it, it set a bench mark for all future driving games. Imo the only one that has come close in terms of gameplay  is codies Toca touring car series ( not race driver!!) The first game to have car tuning, the fictional tracks were and are perfect. Even today racing round Grand Valley gives me goose bumps.

Now for me all i want to do is race, whether online or off line. I'm gonna show my age now but i dont want to join in different stuff, watch others race etc etc. If i race online i want to do it with friends, whether in a league or not. I want cars to feel different, drive like cars. GT gives me that and so far GT sports has gripped me big time. The physics havent changes much but they dont need to imo. Cars handle great.

Now project cars 2 is gonna suffer from the same issues Pcars did. Namely wheel calibration. Its bad, for a driving game you'd expect it to be plug in and play no matter what wheel you had. But its not. You can wrap it up in what you like but if the fundamentals aren't there who cares about online function is the cars drive like pants.

I will bet you now, more people will buy GT sport than Pcars 2. If GT sport lives up to other GT installments we'll be playing it for years to come. Pcars will just disappear into driving sim oblivion.

Typical, i'll be out most of this weekend. I'll try and get on on Sunday evening though, even if just to quality for the 1m Cr payday if i get the actual game!
