Have a look at assetto Corsa, its good.

The car list in that game looks terrible, no offense. Not that the cars themselves are terrible, but it's terribly limited. It seems (and the name probably tells why) that this game only cares about European cars... I'm sorry, but one reason why I loved Forza was because it placed importance in cars from all regions of the world, not just the "cool exotic" ones from Europe... While I obviously see the importance in the European cars, to ignore cars from everywhere else, that's just too narrow-minded for me. I want to be able to drive a 1967 Ferrari P3 or P4, but I also would like to drive a 1966 Ford GT40 MK I. I would love to drive a Lamborghini LP700-4 Aventador, but also a SSC Ultimate Aero. McLaren MP4-12C or Ferrari F40? Of course! But also Shelby 427 Cobra, Stingray Corvette, and Chevy Chevelle SS 454. Seriously, you can't talk about auto-racing without mentioning Carol Shelby, Dan Gurney, Chevrolet, Henry Ford, Chrysler, Hennessey, Mosler, Saleen, etc. or you'd be giving a VERY incomplete picture of automotive racing and history...

The car list in Project CARS is still very incomplete, but it's definitely much better than what they are showing on their website for Assetto Corsa. But being that they are both PC games, people can always add them in later if we get some dedicated modders to accurately model these cars we want and get all of the performance and handling characteristics correct. And I just feel that Project CARS has quite a bit of a head start in terms of the car selection.

I wonder if someone can hack the Forza 4 files to get the 3D models from the game, improve the polygon count, geometry, and textures, and then mod them into Project CARS... I need to learn how to do those things, lol.

I'm definitely interested in this game. Finally a good racing game for the PC so I can use my wheel, lol. I'm just a little sad that the only version of the Ford GT40 is the MK IV, which is my least favorite version since that was after Ferrari tried to cheat by influencing the commission to change the rules so to make Ford's GT40 MK I and MK II illegal (since they were mopping the floor with the Ferrari's with those cars), which resulted in the MK IV, which had a much smaller engine (but they still destroyed Ferrari anyway, lmao!). I really with Project CARS would have went with the MK I, which is arguably, the definitive GT40 version. And I really wish they would have included the modern version too. I know it's mainly a race sim and not a collector car game, but there are race versions like the Robertson Racing Ford GT... Oh well...

i don't feel the need to concede to the corporations, perhaps because i believe i can afford to wait for better products/projects(ie, that such stark qualitative differences still do exist to make such a choice justifiable), and also because i don't think being obstinate in the face of corporations that are clearly two faced in their pr, and outright exploitative in their business practices, is a naive or idealistic thing(that you imply one grows out of). to the contrary, i think it's unhealthy and complacent for the individual consumer or the industry to tolerate these practices and enable them by virtue of purchasing products made under such conditions and circumstances. even if it's just fun and games.

i have no illusion of changing anything, though of course, if people keep tolerating something, it's going to keep happening. see that jimquisition video above. the cynical view of sitting back and enjoying the ride down is a bit too fatalistic for me. i would prefer if the people who are intransigent would outnumber the rest and force the market to adopt a difference approach, but in any case, there is hope is at the end of the tunnel one way or the other Posted Image

Too bad there isn't an upvote button...

That is the key point here. We all find different things enjoyable and for different reasons..... and there is nothing wrong with that. I haven't bought or played a R6 game since Vegas (I actually had some fun with that one) because nothing looked good to me.

Siege looks like a lot of fun in the way that I would have fun playing a weekend of paintball with friends. Realistic? No, but an enjoyable time.

To me, the argument here is simply 1) Those that like that sort of gameplay or don't and 2) Those that can see past the R6 name or can't.
We each fall into 2 of those categories. Posted Image

That is my only point really.

Well, paintball is fun for other reasons. Namely the chance to inflict a little bit of pain (in good fun) to my buddies, lol.

I look at it like this, I have ranted and raved about how Ubi has screwed up R6 over the years and while I still voice my opinion, I know that I will not spend a penny on any of the Ubised versions, ever. They can kiss my grits as Flo would say.

Yep, I'm with you there.

I am with Fixxxer, and I even have a lot of personal stuff invested in the R6 series. I learned to enjoy games for what they are, play them and not worry about what they aren't. Don't like what a game is, regardless of the name, don't buy it. Feel cheated by a company? Fine, don't buy their products. Nothing new to the world there.

The world is full of products that have evolved and changed in many different ways. Cars styling changes every couple years. Buy what you like if its out there or don't. Adjust to what is available or go out and make exactly what you want. The world doesn't owe anyone anything.

Is Rainbow Six what it was 16 years ago? No.... but neither am I and neither are you. Posted Image

Who says I'm buying anything? Of course I'm not buying any of these games. I don't buy anything from Ubisoft. Not only did they bastardize the R6 name, they are console fanboys, so all of their PC games are these lazy crappy console ports that not only look no better than the console versions, despite my PC being capable of so much more, but also are full of bugs. I only ask how we're ok with them taking franchises that were truly different from the competition, and I'm talking about all of the Tom Clancy games as they were made by Redstorm, and turning them into just another shooter with spawning enemies, regenerating health, and all of these stupid things. And sure, I also like games for what they are as long as they are enjoyable. But that's the problem, I don't find any of these typical first-person shooter tropes enjoyable...

I can agree with both of you. My tolerance level for these developers is in the pits, but at the same time, I ultimately don't care so long as it's enjoyable.

Hmm, I sound like the worst kind of enabler... Posted Image

I like things that are enjoyable as well, but all of these stupid typical modern-day first-person shooter qualities are not at all enjoyable. I feel like they are made for a new generation of kids who can't take failure so they have their hand held all through the game. I don't enjoy that at all, I like a learning experience, I like a challenge. If I wanted to just breeze through everything, I'll just watch a movie, why am I involved in the first place unless there's a chance I can lose??

How are people on these forums OK with a "Rainbow Six" game with regenerating health and "Balanced" weapons??? I barf a little every time I see something about Counter-Str... I mean, Rainbow Six: Siege...
