Why do you prefer one DRM over another?

Why not at least say: "I'll buy this when it's on GOG?"

700 cars would be great for Grand Theft Auto game but in a racing game you only care about maybe 25-50 of them, if that.

No Toyota cars either, stay classy Toyota.

That's the whole point, you will CHOOSE 25-50 (given that the game modes encourage you to use many different cars its more like 75-100) out of 700+. Of the other games he mentioned there are 25-50 cars total in the entire game. You have no choice, its linear as shit.

The entire game is based around choices, same as Gran Turismo used to be (not sure about Sport, looks like a linear PC racer). Not to mention all the customization choices that dwarf whats available in any of the games mentioned.

That's the difference, and Project Cars/Assetto Corsa and any other racer on the PC never come close to approaching that depth of these games. I will give Assetto a nod for having a much more mature driving model then any Forza/GT ever has.

That "bullshit" is what separates Forza from PC racing games in general. Campaign mode & buying/collecting cars is a big part of the draw that few PC racing games attempt.

Right, because Grid didn't have a career mode or the ability to collect your season winning cars. Or TDU. Or MCLA. Or The Crew. Or tons of other racing games. Forza Motorsports is no longer a "motorsports" game so the excuse of "those games had street cars in them" won't wash. Racing Polaris ATVs around Spa is "motorsport" now? Or Isettas?

Oh, let me guess, Forza is different because you can customize your driving suit!

Many gameplay changes are causing frustration with racing fans.

Seems they've tried to disguise this game as a full feature game but it plays more like a grind, loot driven Free-2-Play type game.

Having played both, Project Cars 2 is a much better racing game. No bullshit, no frills, just pure racing with a stellar physics model. Oh, AND ACTUAL, FUNCTIONAL FORCEFEEDBACK SUPPORT UNLIKE FORZA.

95 gb download?

for a racing game...

This is why having a disk notcher is important. You can format and use the other side of the disk and get twice as much on it. Here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77VlOLpWPbk

In a pinch, a regular hole puncher works just be sure to align the hole in the right spot.

Is that the PC or Xbox version? If Xbox version just wait for Xbox One X. Got GoW4 on the PC and its already 120Gig+, and I know its large on the Xbox One already.

That's the PC version. The Xbox One version, between disc install and download, is just under 70GB.

Racing games are starting to not reuse textures for the tracks, so the road looks more realistic. Add in the truly ridiculous number of cars, and it’s not terribly surprising. Everyone wants bigger, better looking games and now you’re complaining that someone made one?
50gb is gonna be the norm pretty soon, with the occasional 100+ game. As someone else said, GoW4 is even larger. How big is the next GTA gonna be?

I'm surprised its not happening more often. Guess whats even more surprising is really these sizes are only on Xbox One games, I know the bigger ones at least its because it shares assets with the PC version but still. PS4 games seem are smaller in size overall.

Dear Forza,
I love you and love your series. I love it even more with Play anywhere. Sadly we've driven the same turns, in the same cars for quite some time. I'm not saying we are done. But right now I need a bit of a break for all the other stuff coming out this month.
Don't get me wrong we're still friends with benefits, but I need to play the field a bit more.

Love always (except for that breaking shit they did in the last game),
