I would skip AC for now and grab a couple months of iRacing or rFactor 2 or just wait until pCars and AC are finished. AC started off good but they have made almost 0 progress on the racing front. Right now AC is a decent hotlapping sim and a terrible racing sim.

iRacing is an MMO, I really dislike MMOs. The price of rFactor 2 is outrageous so no thanks, I might try the demo though. I am patiently waiting for Project CARS, shame it got post poned but I think it is for the best.

It's interesting that you think of iRacing as an MMO, I guess that's not really incorrect though, it is always multiplayer. That said the racing is great and you can still hotlap by yourself if you want to. The price can get out of hand though. rFactor 2 is slowly revealing itself to be the #1 offline sim now, so I would say try the demo and see what you think, I haven't bought it yet but I have rFactor 1 and it is simply fantastic. pCars is really shaping up to be a great game, I find myself booting it up nearly every day now to check it out since they release 500mb patches almost every day, crazy how much effort they are putting in to make this game great. Meanwhile Assetto Corsa sits in my steam library untouched for the past month. There just isn't really any staying power unless they can get some proper racing features in.

Also just to let you know iRacing has deal for new members all the time. Not sure if it's still going on but they had 3-months for free for new members last time I checked (I got 3-months for $5 as an existing memeber). I don't see how you could not at least try it, maybe you will like the fact that it's multiplayer.

I will make sure to give rFactor 2 a try but damn is the full game expensive. Concerning iRacing, I dont really like the whole concept of the game on which it bases on. Never been a fan of multiplayer only games and especially MMOs of which the majority has a bunch of in-game purchases. I am very interested in what project CARS will be able to deliver, I expect quite a lot from the game. So far I really like how it is shaping up even though I did not have a change to play it yet. Be sure to check out the Project CARS Information & Discussion Thread.

I'm wondering the same thing. Is the campaign fleshed out, or is it still more of a lap simulator like Project Cars? Is the campaign similar to the original Shift? Can't decide whether to pick it up, or just wait for F1 2015 to get my fix.

It is still a hoptlapping sim. There are a couple of racing events you can do and there actually is a "campaign" but it's just an alternating series of races and time trials. No story/cutscenes just click the icon, do you race, then click the next icon.

If it will have a further discount I will get it but otherwise not. Regardless of the fact that it hit version 1.0, the cars list is very limited with a very few amount of cars, same with the tracks list, the game still looks empty and unfinished. Its a great simulator I have no doubt but it really lacks content.

50% off now. I'd jump on it for that price considering it is head and shoulders above everything else when it comes to the tire model and how the cars feel. More content will come in time and I'm sure many high quality mods will be released as well.
