Ea sports it’s in the game in F1 Chat Posted December 19, 2020 3 hours ago, PaulLynch said: I take it you never played any of the EA F1 games what the designed back in the early 2000 to 2004 . . Of the updated the graphics and physics to modern times I would quit happily buy the F1 games the designed in 04 . The were just more open .manual pit stops and it was manual where you had to do the full pit stop your self .no A1 taking over . I'm looking forward to seeing what the van do . With it . I've bought every F1. Game . And especially the past couple of year I haven't completed career . Not because it's too long . But too boring after a few seasons . The just isn't any imagination to story mode . It doesn't even feel like a career. So I'm really hoping EA brings some immersion to it as most of the time I just feel as if driving in a circle . You get your first win in a midfield car and the game doesn't even mention it Yeah I played all the old ones from, I believe my very first was 1999/2000 Championship. Put a lot of hours into that on PS1! Tbh I put a lot into 2006 the last they did too though they really went all out arcade there. But the remaster F1 Championship Edition for PS3 I still own and still looks like a real TV broadcast! Replays are just stunning with Sony going all out. I'd love that style of graphics again, just massively realistically smooth would be amazing and yes the 2002/04 were much more sim compared to the arcade standards of before, tricky to master and very rewarding, including really nice rewards, I still have the PS2 with the extra disc with FULL season highlights just just gave free with the game! Though the play function is pretty buggy! But today there is no denying what Codemasters has accomplished with advancements on AI (not including backmarkers, they still get weird on us), it would be nice to hear what EA have planned, if they are rebuilding from scratch then how are they going to treat the AI system, because it took years for Codemasters to perfect it, EA won't get it right off the bat, no company can when its back to basics. We will go through all the teething together, then if EA do perfect the AI will they then sell it for another to rebuild? History always repeats. So I'm hoping EA are really thinking hard on its direction. I want smooth graphics, but I'd take slightly grainy over perfect wheel to wheel AI right now. There is no greater feeling in a racing game than earning a clean battle race with a tough but fair AI. I'm also concerned of microtransactions since a few of EAs latest releases have resembled that of the sickeningly corrupt mobile gaming world..
