There are some good things about PC3's career mode but the race objectives isn't one of them. I don't think having to hit the perfect apex 3 times in a race is something GT7 needs. I think they can take the emphasis away from havnig to finish 1st all the time in other ways. Make the races harder but make it a good achievement in the game to finish on the podium.I'm currently playing projectCARS 3 and I have to say that Gran Turismo could learn a thing or two from that game career mode.
I find it very enjoyable!
I really like the idea of race objectives and how you require to earn them to unlock the next event. This way it's not all about finish the first on the podium (which is, to be honest, could be a bit boring once repeated 100 times) but rather trying to find the best car/setup for each race to meet the objectives.
The game is not throwing cars at you, so you have to build your current car. It feels like you are really progressing as a racing driver. And I like that you earn money for levelling up and not from the races. This makes you actually try to accomplish objectives instead of just racing to be first. And money is now worth something because now you actually need to plan what car to buy to maximize its racing life and be illegible for certain events.
But if you want to race in arcade mode, all cars and tracks available, without any restrictions. I really like this approach.
It might be the strongest campaign in the racing genre for a while.
One way they could do that is by revising the Championship prize formula so you get prize money for finishing the championship in the top 3, not just 1st. I also considered a revision to the prize car formula, give each championship 3 possible prize cars. If you finish first you get to pick which one you want from the 3. If you finish second, a random one is removed form the selection and you pick from the other two, and if you finish 3rd you are given a random car from the 3. So you still have a sense of achievement even if you don't outright win the championship.
That's just one thought on improving the rewards system but there's a lot of things you can do the make it more immerive and fun at the same time. Making 3rd feel like an accomplishment and receiving meaningful rewards for that means you can make the races harder and more fun at the same time. As long as they remove the chase the rabbit.
