    Not FM3 and 4. I've gotten all the cars I wanted an never had to do and event more than ONCE. Very not so in GT of recent.

    Since a lot of you guys seem to be ok with paying full price for incomplete items, I've got a lot of stuff I'm willing to sell you, but don't worry, I'll get the rest of it to you "later". But you still have to pay me in full up front. PM me for the list and I'll be happy to give out my PayPal.

    The sad truth is that if it weren't for people voicing their complaints or concerns with the GT series, there would be half as much people here on GTP. PD makes sure that this doesn't happen though ;)

    Assuming you have that to start with. ;)

    What games now days are actually complete? :lol: Lets face it, internet updates with more content are the wave of the future.

    Kaz is too busy driving his GT-R through his hallways of eternal money and unreleased content.

    Yep. And I hate giving Turn 10 credit for anything as IMO they have been steadily going backwards for years now. But, I never once had to repeat single player events over and over again just to obtain cars. In fact, in FM3 and 4 with the storefront I never really needed to play any career. Think I did something like 3 percent of the mind numbing boring FM4 career and have all the cars I ever wanted while giving away tons of credits in the process.

    In fact, can't think of another racing game ever where I've been forced to grind other than the GT series.

    Look, the point I'm trying to make is that this thread is as useless as they come and is not accomplishing anything. We already have a thread for complaints, why not use it.

    they rushed & released a beta game with less option than gt5 , low quality
    im not gonna open threads or impatiently wait for something good to happen , but i can see why the customer is unsatisfied
    btw how was the other updates balanced when with each there was another bug that they had to fix with another update , be a fan but be fair .. dont close your eyes to both good & bad sides of the product.
    OP is not seeing the good side & you are defending pd without recognizing the problems & unsatisfied customers , calling them naive

    Ok, but please don't say that all the others on this thread only complained like idiots, that's disrespectful.

    The problem is too much broken promises, if PD was like 'we release the game but then we don't give a flea's bottom about it'
    NO ONE WOULD COMPLAIN ABOUT GT6 (apart from bugs).
    Sure it's still a good game but too much promises...February is not over yet but I'm hopeless, anyway, I don't want to throw more gas on the fire.

    We aren't getting new content because the game sold 5 copies and they can't afford to waste time walking around unwanted tracks scanning them with a vending machine.

    Or...

    They sold enough and can't be bothered working on free DLC as it isn't profitable.

    Also Vision GT is dead.

    Unforeseen Consequences.

    idunno I find it unlikely they will stick to their regime and actually get everything released.

    Ok, there you go putting words in my mouth. I NEVER called anyone an idiot, so don't even try that crap. I implied that most of the other posts were meaningless in the fact that it was just a bunch of people crying and complaining which is accomplishing absolutely nothing atm. If you are going to quote me, at least get things right and don't turn them into something just to suit your needs. That is disrespectful.

    Well, maybe you're right, the tempo of the releases of VGT cars really is very slow and a bit demoralizing. But then, I want to believe that we will get all these awesome concepts someday. Like the Nike Concept - that looks mad!

    Essentially we've had one in 3 months, excluding the other one with the wing on it which looks worse and doesn't work in being passed off as a new car :lol:

    Quoting a single post and describing it as the first sign of intelligent life you've seen in this thread is certainly implying that. If I quoted GTracer98 and cited his post as being the first sign of good manners I've seen in this thread, what would that imply? Fair to say you would assume I meant everyone else was rude? (I don't think that, just for the record :sly:) Stop being pedantic, you're actually just making it worse.

    I didn't say you called everyone an idiot, but saying that it was the first sign of intelligence does feel like you call everyone else unintelligent. GBO Possum's post was good, I agree, but certainly not the only intelligent one on this thread.

    And I'm not trying to suit my needs, where did you get that from? I just don't want a war on GTP, even though it's happening in some threads already.

    Could it be because i'm new to the series (and the forums), but since january i've seen seasonal events, free cars, 2 vision GT prototypes, 3 major updates and redbull events .
    The lack of communication pisses me too, but from here to saying that the game is dead and the support is non-existent is, i think, simply nonsense.

    Dissatisfaction itself doesn't indicate naiveté. So the answer to your question is "no".

    And yes, to be constructive, grouping all the complaints in one place for Polyphony Digital just makes practical sense. Providing them with one repository ensures that they can even set up an automated system to download the criticisms. Scattering the complaints across many, many threads makes them harder to find. If you truly want them to be read by PD, then make their task easier by not hiding them. I'm assuming a constructive motive of course.

    This is the power of the "Suggestions" sub-forums, where desires for Cars, Tracks and Features are placed in one repository, with a requirement to not bundle multiple requests in one thread. I contrast this with the Forza forums where they DO have a "things you'd like to see" sub-forum, but unlike @Jordan's one here, theirs is totally unstructured, and it would be very difficult for Turn 10 to extract usable data.

    Before anyone naively suggests that the responsible people in Polyphony Digital don't read Jordan's special Suggestions buckets, let me say that I'm sure they do. Any Product Manager in a software company who willfully ignored such a treasure trove would find themselves given a free escort to the street.

    Yay! More first world problems!

    PD is like the CIA. Hardly say anything, do work in the shadows, and when you do hear about their deeds you get mad.

    The suggestion threads are indeed quite useful and i also hope they finally use our customer feedback, but on the years I spend here at GTP the issues people had gripes with all this time have not been addressed at all, which leads me to believe either they don't really care what is said here, or they just don't bother translating it in Japanese.

    No its not. I was implying that there was a lot of useless crying and complaining going on and that the post I first quoted was the first meaningful thing that I have seen for awhile in this thread. I am not being pedantic at all, that is your assumption. Maybe I didn't make myself clear enough, but that is what I meant. I really don't see how I'm making things worse, but of course that would be your reasoning because of your dislike for me. Heaven forbid you actually see things my way for once. :rolleyes:

    Also, what about the other 4 people that agreed/liked that post, you going to call them out too?

    You can try to make this personal, like you always do when someone contradicts or corrects you, or you can listen to reason for once. You didn't say 'meaningful' you said 'intelligent'. The fact you didn't use the word 'idiot' is just semantics; the implication is clear, ergo I didn't make an assumption. I'm not taking anyone's side, just pointing out what's fact and my personal feelings are not relevant.

    Well then, my apologies. If you weren't sure what I meant, maybe you should have asked me then.

    Or you should've thought out precisely what you were going to say in a way that it wouldn't hurt anyone. A recipe for a healthy discussion. Because I agree there's a tad too much complaining going on but you can't fail to see that PD is a bit slow with implementing GT6 feature updates.

    Be specific in your meaning. Enough now, you've not contributed anything to this thus far beyond telling everyone else to stop whining.
