As an owner of pCARS since October 2011 (day one kind off...) I can say that I´m not even playing it at the moment (just trying builds every day for some minutes) because it has some serious problems in the simulation aspect as of now carried since the start. I´m hoping they can solve this in the RC (Release Candidate) build later this year...If that doesn´t happen I probably won´t be playing it as much as I played any Gran Turismo because that game is not a "substitute" to me in comparison. (amount of cars/tracks/features, physics aside) Since pCARS is "focused" in the "pure simulator" range at the moment, I prefer Assetto Corsa over it (which also has serious problems in the physics department but is too early to judge) and mostly rFactor 2 as the top one. With that said, I think that we should wait and see if PD is able to do a game that can stand out as the old ones did at their time because as of now the game is just good but with tons of flaws that should be eradicated from the series for ever. (engine sounds, repetitive car models, not making use of actual real life rules/regulations, etc...to name some) I won´t change one game for another...I prefer to have them all and judge for myself...there is no perfect game...one always has what the other doesn´t and so on.
