It's just that external view makes the game feel easier (and it does) regardless if it's not close to real life view.
It's easier because the field of view using the external view is much wider.

Immersion isn't equal to real life. Immersion makes me feel a part of the game. In the cockpit, it feels very much detached... I guess however this would be different with a force feedback wheel... but using my DS3 or 360 control, I just can't help but feel "disconnected" from the road.

I've been driving for nigh on 7 years now in real life and playing racing games the same. As I said before, the only game that really came close was Dirt.

I guess it's just my opinion.

EDIT: Also I said bonnet cam, not 3rd person smile.gif 3rd person is awful frown.gif

I can look through my mirrors, see the onboard meters, and sensing the amount the car drifts with both the force feedback and the information I can gather from the screen, I have zero necessity to see the car boundaries. Because I can know what's happening just by 'immersing' myself in that view.

Other people might argue that they lack information while playing in a cockpit view, but arguing realism is pretty much out of the question.

I think that's just it, the lack of other feedback, be it through a wheel, through the movement of your body or other minor touches means I don't feel like im a part of the car, more that it's a filter sitting in front of me.

I never liked bumper cams because that's even worse, but bonnet cams are a nice mix. It's realistic for me in that most racing videos feature a bonnet cam and you get a much better field of vision and thus "information"

Again, it's my opinion. With a nice EyeFinity setup and force feedback wheel, i'm sure I can be convinced biggrin.gif

I don't even care about Cockpit view and I'm bot buying the game.

A company that undermines their PC fanbase to the point that they'd strip features out of the next iteration of the game, just to level the playing field between PC and Console, is a company that does not deserve my money.

Ever since Dirt Showdown, the codies have kinda gone ape doodles.

No cockpit view sounds like a game marketed towards casual players.
