Wasnt there any similar to this in the first Forza or 2?

The driveatar could drive the races for you, and learned how you were driving.

Forza looks amazing, the team at Turn 10 do incredible work, but I have my reservations when it comes to the XONE. That being said, I'm willing to wait things out and see if next-gen brings us another DiRT or F1 game, which amongst the company of other titles would be enough to sway me away from this title.

Wow, just think...soon we may not need to have to do any of the gameplaying ourselves, we could just sit back and let MS play our games for us.

Am I the only one who thinks this sounds fucking lame?

If only it came out for PC.  I know there are other driving games out there, if not better, but what I like about how you can paint your car.  If there's a racing game that has that same customization for PC, I have to know what it is.

As stupid as the name sounds that does sound pretty cool, your driving doppelganger competing with other players while your away and making you $. If only it was coming out on PS4, guess I'll miss another Forza.

@Skirner Driveatar was a feature of the first Forza Motorsports game on the original Xbox.  It hasn't been seen since.  In FM2, 3, and 4 you would just hire a generic AI driver to do races for you (though FM2 did allow you to hire drivers of varying skill levels).

@JangoF-76 Hiring drivers has been in the Forza series since day 1.  This feature is nothing new...and it has not hurt the Forza brand one bit thus far.  If you don't want the AI to do races for you, then just drive them yourself.  It's entirely optional.  Gran Turismo has featured this ability as well with its B-spec series going back to GT4.  Is that lame too??

@cirugo You sure?
I thought it was a CoD clone...
