I dunno about iRacing. They still haven't got the tire model right in iRacing after so many iterations. I'd say rF2 and AC both have considerably better tire models than iRacing, which is now a good generation behind. I haven't tried the very latest season build of iRacing, but in the last one the grip was still too unpredictable.

As I'm seeing things, rF2 actually has the most advanced physics model available now, but it's so damn complex nobody, not even ISI, has it figured out yet (it's always been modders who get the most out of ISI's engine more so than ISI themselves). When the DW12 is updated next, *that* will be something worth looking into. Combined with Live Track and the weather system, it's the most complete sim package, bug again, it's hard to recommend because the content still hasn't truly come.

AC has a relatively simple tire model, but they've got it tuned to perfection, and it probably has the best physics on average of all of them at the moment.

Right now, things are pretty complicated. iRacing has the best tracks and the online service is great with probably the best netcode (rF2 not being far behind). rF2 has the most overall potential, the best AI by a huge margin (if you care about that), but its potential hasn't been realized yet in terms of content and the graphics are a generation behind. AC has the best graphics and the most consistent physics out of the box, but the worst netcode and AI.

iRacing will surely eventually get their tire model right. rF2 will eventually get the content it's simulation technology deserves, and AC will likely improve their netcode and AI.

Two or so ago years ago, I wrote an article for AutoSimSport, when NTMv1 for iRacing was about to be released, rFactor2 was around the corner, and AC's alpha wasn't much further off (and even, hah, LFS S3 got a mention), and proclaimed we were standing on the verge of a new dawn for sim-racing. I think I was mostly right, except it was maybe more like noon the last Tuesday-but-one rather than the dawn.

Okay. Now, this time for sure, it's the new dawn.

Agree with pretty much all of this.

The best thing about iRacing is the competitive structure. It can be very addicting. As far as it's physics are concerned it feels a generation behind. If AC and Rfactor 2 are the "new generation". I'm being obtuse, this is just a subjective feeling.

This, or Project Cars?

AC. If you want a game focused on driving physics.

Project Cars for the graphics. The physics are OK. I guess. It's a Gran Turismo style game for PC. Looks like a sim and tries hard to be one, but isn't.

My sim driving time is split between Iracing and AC. Iracing for the best online racing available. AC for hotlapping and the physics, which are the best I've experienced.

In fact Elite 2 not being that is exactly why I backed Star Citizen.

Comparing a released game to an unreleased game is pointless.

Hyperbole and poor comparisons by reviewers aside - whatever Elite is, at least it's out and being played.

I'm a huge fan of the series. Watch T2 every few months.

That said, I clicked the play button with an open mind. Old Arnold..a series which has been exhausted with silly sequels and an awful TV series.

But..Dude..I didn't expect it to appear as bad as that.

Those analogies are flawed

while The Witcher gives a form of immersion similar to reading a good book.
High budget AAA titles provide immersion in the same way a hollywood blockbuster does. Visually. Loads of luscious visuals. You're immersed superficially.

Dwarf Fortress gives a form of immersion similar to doing a jigzaw puzzle

Dwarf Fortress requires a level of imagination to enjoy. The systems and control you have go beyond what you can experience with a closed world dominated by high end but mostly static visuals. The systems can transcend what amounts to walking around inside a menagerie of pretty things.

The majority of recently released titles that flaunt immersion are really just FPS titles with stats and scripted events. Whether it's Watchdogs, GTA or Skyrim.

Graphics are the safest route to "immersion". But for some it's a shallow immersion. Immersion that starts from the gameplay design up that isn't limited to FPS/third person adventure gameplay goes beyond most of the AAA output at the moment.

I won't be going near this till it's actually released. I've waited nearly 2 decades for something that aspires to be a new Syndicate. I'm ok with not spoiling it playing a work in progress.

Nearly went with one of the Samsung phones. Bought an LG G2 instead. Having a powerful phone that lasts nearly 2 days on one charge sold me.

Work in mobile development myself. We maintain multiple graphics assets for different hardware. Essentially design the game for IOS, then drop features as needed to get it running on lower end apple and the millions of lower end android devices. It's a pain.

The first and second Terminator films weren't better because they were made "back in the day", but because they were actually good. The second especially will always hold up. Try to say that about the 3rd or 4th.

Anyhow, few film franchises can survive past a sequel. Certainly not by casting a previous lead known for his athleticism who is way past his prime.

And if you don't agree with me, watch out. I might tell you about the time I defended woman, rented a camaro, dated many young ladies and was an all round self loathing gamer anti-gamer.

If you look for a job in games development the first thing the awful recruiting agencies ask is "What was the metacritic score of the previous games you worked on?"

Sad thread.

I get the feeling Beamer is uncomfortable associating with "gamers".

I'm not interested in a sequel to something that was at best a barebones game. I'd like them to completely expand it into it's own franchise.

Huh, didn't Elysium come out after that? I wonder why they didn't use that to advertise this? I wonder...


I think we all know why.

Bis have turned OFP into a lifelong career. Unfortunately that career is like a bureaucrat in a back office just waiting to go home at 5pm. They've been sleep walking features in for years.
