    I love graphics, but we are at the point now where I worry more attention is going into the graphics than into tangible gameplay improvements. Gran Turisom has had crappy AI (and honestly most games do) for many many years as you say. I love the new graphics but if I have to choose between GT6 graphics with good AI or GT7 graphics with crappy AI I'll pick the former.

    Man, looking back I really miss that simulation heavy era of Far Cry 2/Crysis/Fear. The AI in Fear, Killzone 2, and Halo 3 still represent more or less the peaks that I've seen thinking off the top of my head. Shame we haven't gone further than that after all this time.

    Racing games seem to often have some pretty terrible AI once you figure out how it works. Unrelated, but since I'm thinking back oh what I'd give for a native PC version of Killzone 2 with modern TAA and proper ambient occlusion.

    Well, after reading this, my hopes had been improved...shame it didn't make any difference.

    Don't believe the hype.

    Yep. They cut the prizes players got from winning races. Some, to half.
    So it takes more grinding to buy cars.

    Nice to see that they have gone full r*tard with the online part as well. Start the game to find it needs updated, start the game and get a notice that can be summed up as 'we screwed the pooch with the latest patch so have opted to extended the maintenance period' meaning I now have to wait five minutes just for the f*cking game to start and when it does finally start I have access to nothing but some stupid quick race all because this bunch of useless d*cks can't get a patch done correctly. It's simple if your game requires an constant online connection you make sure it works and works EVERY single time and if you can;t do that then you make sure that it works fully offline.... but then I guess they wouldn't want folk using save editors to get round their BS microtransactions.

    Whatever the case Polyphony have just won a spot on the never buy from again list.

    ^^^Never buy at launch and never pre order, a simple rule of thumb when it comes to the cesspit that is today's gaming industry.

    I don't get why this needs DRM at all tbh.

    The same thing happens in F1 races all the time.

    In GT7 ? or, RL?

    I honestly cannot remember which version of GT had F1 type of cars...I seem to remember a sup'd up mega car of some kind on my PS3 with a test track...I miss my PS3 sometimes, GT5 on there had nice handling...I think all I ever did was play split-screen with friends on the 'ring.

    GT1 or 2 had F1 cars. I was thinking more about RL. Even humans stick to their own racing lines and refuse to give way on corners or tight turns.

    Ah, so RL...yeah, I still think that if your computer game is the only racing game where the AI sticks to a f'king TRAIN TRACK for going around a circuit, and, is also the only racing game that does not change its racing line, and will simply SLAM into the player - it might be something to look into and, y'know, CHANGE!

    It's been like this for decades 'man! The AI is TOTAL $HIT and has never been changed!

    Watching people play this game on twitch is painful, as I just know the AI is not going to move out of the way, and, will slam into the person on twitch and their reaction is always the same "WTF!"

    No other racing game does this! How can AI this bad still be in the game code after all this time???!?!?!!?!

    Wasted opportunity with the PS5, I think. It didn't have to be like this.

    Metacritic users rated it 2.5 average atm.
    Seems that the community is also not happy about it. Raising prices on the cars after the latest patch, microtransactions, online DRM (and being offline for more then 24hrs) is the main cause.

    Lets hope Sony will listen and see this is not the way gamers want to be treated.

    I hear people are raging about them lower the credit rewards and push micro transations after the last patch most kind of them purposely increase the grind

    There isn't really any way to make it better. AI has pathfinding to get around the track without crashing. That's all it needs.
