I've played lots of Gran Turismo, and since switching to PC, quite a bit of Race Room Racing Experience and Assetto Corsa. I'd say the handling in all three is very similar. The difference is the collision physics - in Gran Turismo you can drive straight into a pack of cars and probably bounce off them and end up ahead of them. You can also sideswipe somebody when passing them at high speed and it has no effect on your car. In both Race Room and Assetto Corsa, that sort of thing will send you spinning off the track. It makes a huge difference because you actually have to wait for the opportunity to pass, instead of just shoving your way past everybody.

I do side quests until I've well and truly forgotten the main quest even exists. By the time I get around to it, the game is the sidequests and the main quest is just an especially big one.

I platinumed 1 & 2 but quit the third one before I'd even finished the campaign. It was just drastically below the standards of the first two. So no, no hype for part 4.

Because although there may be quite a few adult gamers, the vast majority are still kids and you can feed them whatever rubbish you want and they don't know the difference.

I've never felt that anyone judged me because I play the occasional video game. Maybe that's because I don't tend to associate with judgmental people. There are gazillions of people in the world and absolutely no reason to befriend those who need to feel superior to others because of their choice of hobbies etc.

I've given up on gaming. Just a bunch of near-identical games, doesn't even matter what genre it is there days. They all look and play the same. As far as the big publishers are concerned, us guys who don't drool over every new online shooter aren't welcome in the hobby any more.

Wake me when the next (single player) Elder Scrolls or Fallout Game comes out.

Funny because if you look at the history of the Vatican they make organized crime guys like like freakin' angels in comparison. They were truly one of the most corrupt and bloodthirsty outfits in the history of the world.

So like one illegal immigrant out of a thousand will now be detained for a bit. That should get the job done.

I loved high school because I finally came out of my shell and made a lot of friends and did plenty of partying. I hated middle school though.

There are a lot of good things about Japan, like just how freakin' nuts it is, but there are plenty of bad things too. In Tokyo the cost of a closet (which they call an apartment) is absurd, girls only want to date guys who make enough money to support them like their dad supported their mom, going to work is an extremely formal affair, you have to treat your boss like he's the emperor of the country, and it's like living in the middle of the world's biggest ant hill.
