I don't feel Senna was saying throw caution completely to the wind. You gotta be realistic. Strive within your boundaries...then push those boundaries further little by little. Even Senna had to start somewhere.[/quote]So I finally got a little time and I tried vanilla GTR 2 and OMG! It blew my mind! What an amazing simulator. It's one of those games that keeps me playing for a long time. I didn't have to look at the time every 5 minutes (which happens a lot with most of these so called best games ever). I didn't even care that I left stock graphics, no AA or anything. It looked like PS2 maybe, but it's one of the best games I've driven in years. I got distracted for a second and I spaned out. I had to be full concentrated in the game.
And I didn't even installed any mods, heck, I played with a controller (assissts off) and it was so rewarding. Did a couple of laps in Magny-cours and Imola (haven't played there in a long time). I gotta get a Driving Force GT ASAP.
So, yeah, whoever is reading this, doubting if it's worth it, play GTR 2. I think I found my panacea (?)

Of course, I agree with both of you. I'm only doing practice for now in GTR 2 and I'm not going full potential by any way, shape or form. I'm only trying to not spin out and get used to the real driving. But as cautious as I want to be, I will still want to go full driving in a race Edited by Bestuck - 6/28/13 at 9:42pm
