Yeah, I know nothing but that's the reason why I am here. What I remember from SMS is Shift 1 on PS3 with input lag on my G25 - unplayable. Bit later I tried it again with Shift 2 for PC, still crazy input lag on the same wheel. This year I tried it on a gamepad and it was terrible. Worst gamepad experience for a long time.I'm going to be blunt here, you have absolutely zero idea at all what you are going on about.
WMD covered the range of people and was not 'a very different group'.
It's quite simple, talking to your audience works, not talking to them doesn't.
You clearly know very little about the development history behind the PCars series (and less about the history of the company prior to that), yet for some reason only known to yourself you keep digging. May I suggest that you put down the shovel and try listening to others, that you are telling a WMD members that they are wrong is to be blunt full blown Dunning-Kruger!
But PC1 was crazy good for a game in that time. Still, it's awesome in many aspects. It looked like somebody really thought about it. PC2 is very similar to me, something is better, something worse, but nothing different.
And there is PC3, completely off game from the same developers? I don't think so. It's just not possible.
That's what I see.
