I dont think i have a big problem with this. I want the game director to make the game he thinks is the best. What good would it be to have him do a game that the community wants that is then half-assed done in its quality? I rather have the vision of the director but then really really good and polished instead of badly executed fan wishes. I think it showed with GT 5 and 6 that maybe this kind of game was not really his passion anymore after 1-4, so he took a different route. Lets cut the man some slack. After all he is a perfectionist and a petrol head and loves racing in the real world. I think thats quite a good base.
