Why is GT7 so boring?

The real reason why GT7 is boring is because all the cars in the game aren't available as rental cars.

Whether it's the game modes of World Circuits (Quick Race, Time Trial, Drift Trial and Custom Race) or Split-Screen Race, the fact that Polyphony haven't even bothered to make every car available as a rental car may have also contributed to the game's design of excessive grinding.
It's so you will spend money on micro transactions to get creds to buy a car you can actually compete with, it's why they focus on multiplayer and live service instead of single player, because single player doesn't allow them to line their greedy pockets with our money
It won't hurt progression in any way, as such a feature could be structured similarly to Forza where, if GT7 were to have all the cars in the game available as rental cars in World Circuits and Split-Screen Race, there will be some restrictions in place, such as the following:

  • They can only be raced in Quick Race, Time Trial, Drift Trial and Custom Race in World Circuits, and cannot be used in career mode events, the Paddock or other game modes outside of World Circuits or Split-Screen Race. Players will return to their currently-selected car from the Garage once they end their World Circuits session with a rental car.
  • Custom liveries cannot be used with these cars; only car-specific default colors can be used. They also cannot be upgraded or customized in any way. You can, however, choose the tire compound for these cars.
  • Setup tuning on rental cars will only be based on the car's default setup, using whatever parameters are available.
  • Daily Workout progress will not be earned driving a rental car.
Why would they do that when they make alot of money through micro transactions, so you can get enough creds to buy those cars to avoid the grind, if people would stop be gullible and giving in and spending money on micro transactions, then all these game companies wouldn't use ****** tactics to force us into spending real money, to get creds, so we can race online and actually be able to compete, hence why they don't care about single player, game companies are greedy and they will always only focus on the aspects that make them the most money...

Microtransactions aren't the only reason here.

For reference, they've even done this to the Arcade Mode car selection in GT5, which had no microtransactions at all.

It was only in GT6 and GT Sport where they added such things to the game, and lately, GT7, although they are, at the end of the day, optional.

But then again, microtransactions aren't the real reason why they're doing this. It's so that they promote excessive grinding and to make the car collecting aspect as tedious as Pokemon, without any reprieve in order to let players drive what they want, whenever they want under free racing modes such as Arcade/Quick Race/Custom Race... whatever you want to call it.

Luckily there is a mod for GT5 (however you can only do this on the RPCS3 emulator) that makes every car available in Arcade Mode.

But as for GT7, they really need to make an update where all the cars in the game are available to rent in World Circuits (just not in the career mode events) and in Split-Screen Race. Especially moreso since by the April update we could finally reach the 500-car mark.

Criticisms of MTX are fair enough but this right here is entirely false, complete and utter nonsense of the highest order.

The competitive online mode of GT7 is Sport and you can compete at the highest levels of Sport mode without buying a single car. The majority of races do not even allow tuning, which renders purchasing the car pointless, and if you do want to buy the GR3/GR4 cars, they are cheap.

The people buying MTX are impatient collectors, it has nothing to do with PD pushing multiplayer and live service.

How people use mental gymnastics to try and use GT7 as an example of predatory micro transactions disregarding reality hurts the logical side of my brain and doesn’t cease to amaze me. They have to literally ignore the entire gaming industry to spout this disingenuous BS. GT7 ain’t perfect, and it’s microtransactions are clearly aimed only at whales willing to buy 500 cars with real money not one idiot trying to buy a single car to win an online race they can rent the car for. Their argument fails on every level.

My fault for thinking they are using logic to come to their accusatory ill informed conclusions 🤷🏼‍♂️

Very well said! I still don't understand why people are using that as a reason to not like the game. Ok sure, there are micro transactions available in the game... But they are pretty well hidden and only there for those that want them. Nothing is stuck behind a paywall and money will not give you any kind of advantage over someone that only uses in game credits.

Micro transactions are a big problem in mobile games and a few console/pc games... But the ones where it is a problem are all based on pay to win game styles. Those games will always have some kind of "sale" and then some kind of monthly or quarterly "special sale". Those games will also beg you constantly to buy something so you can have some kind of advantage over someone who spends less than you do. I have not seen a single advertisement or even a sale on the credits that are available for purchase in GT7.

PD is basically giving the player the choice to either buy the credits or to play and win the credits... It's entirely up to the individual player to decide how they want to play.
