I agree.

GTA is no more than an enhanced arcade game. While there are tons of things to change, there is no concrete testing method, it has no real effect on your car for the most part (like dropping a half pound of air), and to be quite honest, the simulation part is not that real compared to other games like rFactor and Live for Speed (LFS).

GTR2 is great in my book, although I have never watched real time gameplay in person.


I play LFS and rFactor alot - probably the better sims but LFS lacks customization and real world cars

GTR 2 looks nice and runs well. Nice and fun

rFactor is great because of the huge mod base. Race 07 is also good especially in leagues etc over at racedepartment.

Overall I can't decide which one is my favourite, they all have great attributes.

Wow, maxishine has one hell of a beard.

I would have to say GT Legends, closely behind is GTR2.

Nice how they leave out GT4 and Forza. Damn purists. Both are great driving simulators. In fact, GT4 gets my vote even though it isn't there.

i've played GTR2 as well and in my opinion the cars spin out too easily, GT is the real simulator in my opinion. althought i haven't tried GTR2 with my DFP yet.
