This is the discussion thread for an article on GTPlanet:
I agree with the sentiments that this is a reward for an undercooked, false promise of a return to the glory days of the franchise.
For a few years, my bread and butter has been online racing. GT Sport delivered on that with a very narrow focus, but pissed a lot of longtime fans off with almost no singleplayer.
GT7 provides an overly simplistic and heavily gated singleplayer experience that in no way caters to longtime fans that wanted that classic SP feel.
Online is still undercooked and not used to its full potential. Why are there no playlists, for lack of a better word, of online racing? What if I like formula cars, why isn't there a daily/weekly race category for formula racing? Why are there no non-world championship weekly race series?
When GT Sport came out, I felt it had the potential to revolutionize the game. Click on the Sunday Cup on the map, choose whether you want to race the offline or online version. Click online, be matched up against other players wanting to race the Sunday Cup online.
GT7 is tremendously wasted potential and makes me question the resource allocations internally at PD, for yet another release.
At this point, I, and many like me, have exited to go to iRacing. So it annoys me quite a bit that the fans who want that solid, amazing singleplayer experience can't even get catered to. Its the age-old question of: What the **** is Polyphony doing with their development time budget?
That's not entirely true. Fifa23 and F12022 are great games this year as sports/racingSeeing the other contenders, it was like stealing the candies from a baby Still I want to give my congratulations to one of my favourite franchise, deserved it even with all the flaws
