Playstation has Gran Turismo. Xbox has Forza. What does PC have?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Why isn't there any car collector's racing game for PC?
post #2 of 30
All the PC really has ATM is Assetto Corsa, and all that game has is Italian cars. Gee, thanks....

If only SHIFT & SHIFT 2 were more fun

Well, here's what I'd recommend doing to get your fix:
-Play DirT 3
-Play Gran Turismo 3/4 on an emulator
-Wait for Project Cars.

I have actually been looking for a good fun driving or flying game recently. I tried out F1 2013 last weekend during the free weekend...pretty disapointing lol.

FSX is still awesome for flying.

Yea, I've been asking around about PC racing games and all I keep getting are the ones with below-average reviews; I've even been recommended "Need For Speed: Rivals" (heard it was God-awful - also an EA game) and "Burnout: Paradise" (definitely one of the worst games I've ever played and a terrible ode to the previous games - R.I.P. Crash mode...).

So far, "Flatout" is the only one that really comes close to what I want in a racing game. I guess asking for classic American muscle, detail to destruction (i.e. your back windshield isn't always the first to go no matter what velocity or angle you get hit), and a variety of racing styles (off-road/dirt track, regular track, a mix of both, street racing, open world, etc) is a bit much, lol.

Fortunately, the creators of "Flatout" are coming up with "Next Car Game" (nothing like PC first!) and I've always wanted to support a game from the beginning. Looks like my only option, really.

Project CARS will be an option this fall. It's not really a "car collector" type game though. There will be plenty of cars, but not nearly as many as in the GT and Forza games. It's also more on the simulation side of things than those games are.

Most fun in vehicles I've had in videogames recently is in Far Cry 3. I know it's not what you're looking for, but it's fun. tongue.gif
