Love them both - just hope they can add in actual 2019 liveries for SF because racing in a field of featureless black cars offline is a bit of a pain.

<Sigh>... if this game is going to make me do a 'daily workout' to win a prize car.... could it please award me with something other than a BMW M6 GT3?

 

I have eight of them now....

The other day I did what I NEVER do and bought a car on the PSN Store because I couldn't be bothered to get the credits. I wanted the '16 Audi R18 because I was doing a 'which LMP1 car is fastest round the Nordshleife' test (just because). £2.49, find, got it.

When I completed my daily workout that day, which car did it gift me? Was it a 2007 Suzuki Swift Sport as usual? No, it was a F***ING AUDI R18 LMP1. Unbelievable.

For what it's worth, I did 6:03 in the R18, 6:04.2 in the 919 and 6:04.9 in the TS050 but I'm sure sub-6 minutes is possible.

The whole credits thing is my major issue with the game, it's not needed anymore. The title has matured and can forgo this sillyness

I like having an economy, as long as it's actually good. In GTS it's kind of ****.

Are we racers or gamers? If we are racers we don't need the credits.

Games like Project CARS, Assetto Corsa and yeah, even Forza 7 that let you drive any car straight out of the box.....that's the way to do it. Sure, in Forza you can only 'rent' them but if you're not bothered about customising etc, it means you can totally ignore the credits side. GT Sport is quite old fashioned in some ways but it redeems itself.

I'm a massive fan of GT Sport. I think in terms of pure driving enjoyment, it's the best. I always think hot-lapping the Nordschleife is the best indicator. One car, one track, shaving time off your best....on that I'd rate them

1. GT Sport
2. Assetto Corsa
3. Project CARS 2
4. Forza 7

AC is very close though, when you find a good car/track combo it's pretty much unbeatable.

We did have a Nordschleife time trial thread on here a while back for I think GT5... If there's enough interest from the players here we could do a new one? It might even be easier with the different categories now, so a list for Gr.1 etc...

Time trial at the Nurburgring again on a whim and immediately banged in a 5:59 in the Audi R18. Yay.
