He's simply wrong about what makes GT Sport not a true GT game. Firstly Sport has tuning, second, dynamic weather wasn't a feature in all past GT games. Yet some of those were true GT games. He's wrong on both.When GT Sport was the latest GT game, someone commented on here that it wasn't a true GT game. I asked them what it needed to make it a true GT game, and two of the things they mentioned were dynamic weather and tuning. GT7 adds both those things, which that particular poster saw as defining features required to make it a true GT game, so I don't think it can be seen as just a clone of GT Sport when it adds features that some people attach so much importance to. The new tracks are pretty significant, too, I think people underestimate how much work it takes to create those.
GT Sport isn't widely accepted as a mainline GT game. GT7 is, yet however GT7 does not feel like a very deeply satisfiying game like GT4 or GT2... in their day...
What makes GT Sport not a true GT game? Well anyone can say it's missing X
What makes GT7 a true GT game? I could say because it has X
Are both these games true GT games? A lot of people would have mixed opinions, but for GT7 it's mainly yes or no..
Is GT7 or Sport True GT games? That's complicated questions...For me GT7 is not a true GT game, yet. It was released unfinished, and one day it will be complete, then I'll play it and be able to tell you if GT7 is a true GT game or not, as of now? No. Seems like it's got big shoes to fill and hasn't done it yet, though it's aspirations are high, it seems.
