On A Sekrit Mishun
Because you have so many variables you can change per situation you want. Sims are riddled with various option meant for one thing... Whatever the simulator is trying to simulate. Be that weather, track surface, car responsiveness, the tuning of the car, the car options... Any thing and everything you think of, a sim can do it...Why do people want GT to be a sim? I want it to be fun.
Sure you can still enable your driving assists, but that doesn't mean it's not a sim. TC and launch control are in cars nowadays. Does that mean those cars are for wimps? No.
With a sim, you are given the standard set of everything, and then you can decide how you want it managed. With GT, they sorta give you some stuff to tinker with, but it's nothing compared to actual sims. It's models the cars correctly, physics wise, which is all I need to call it a sim, but it isn't an immersive sim like others I play...
