    A thread for those who like/love F12019

    The only things I have commented on is how sterile the career mode is as a whole (despite there being at least some minor attempt at livening things up with this year's game) and that there could be a more realistic looking set of helmets, a helmet designer tool or at least a set of team-specific templates to be able to apply so it actually looks like you are part of the team you drive for in career mode. I usually keep those comments in threads pertaining to those issues. I don't however deliberately add a NEGATIVE viewpoint to a thread that is about being POSITIVE(and likely staying away from the rampant negativity that permeates most of this forum) for the sake of being "critical". I could go into every thread and say "shut up ***** it's a videogame just have fun" but I don't do it.

    Why go into a thread for people who aren't here o just complain incessantly just to essentially ***** about the fact that they aren't complaining about it? That's kind of ridiculous if you ask me.

    A thread for those who like/love F12019

    There is a lot to enjoy about this game. It allows for some fantasy, like a Williams team that can compete for race wins and maybe even a championship, a championship where it isn't just a fight between the same teams and drivers ad nauseum, Drivers changing teams and/or losing their jobs altogether(however random it may be) instead of ten seasons where the only driver changes involve your own avatar just randomly taking a drivers job and them being out of the championship entirely. The game this year even tried to inject some semblance of life beyond practice, race, develop and repeat by having the mini-story with F2 and Weber and Butler. Despite the fact that CM were clearly half pregnant with and could have been spmething great if they actually ran with it as opposed to it being a half-hour detour before the usual sterile pattern from previous entries in the franchise. Implementing this story-based gameplay isn't a bad idea either. Pretty much every sports game worth a damn these days has tried or should be trying to do story aided career modes they are something that the players can immerse themselves in. There are always modes in Sports games for the simulation fans like the regular championship mode where you can just take control over a driver in the official field and have a season of your annoyingly rigid and predictable F1 season. I think that many of the people complaining the loudest(most) are forgetting that the game isn't targeted directly at them. The game is trying to cater to both the hardcore racing fans and the people who like their games to feel a little less rigid and far less sterile than a straightforward simulation. I don't get the appeal of wanting the career mode to mimic the actual f1 season to the letter where nothing ever changes and the same handful of teams/drivers are always at the top. Seriously If I want to see F1 one Lewis and Mercedes run away with it every year I'll forego the game altogether because I can see that on TV. There really is something for everyone in the game. It's a shame that it seems like most people(on either side of the argument) can't see that for the positive that it is.

    Stickers/sponsors on custom helmets

    There at least needs to be better helmet designs to choose from. If you look at the helmets of the actual drivers and see how intricate they are getting and then you see the choices that we are presented with year after year it's crazy how cheap and lame your career avatar looks by comparison. There needs to be a better selection of helmets to choose from at the very least. There were cooler looking helmets in F1 2012. Hell, I'd take the large selection of non-customizable helmets that from then and add them to the game next patch if I could. At least they had some life to them. Helmets can be more than three colours at a time I would love to see sponsors/stickers on career helmets I think the best way to implement that is to have either a full creation suite for helmets or the ability to upload your own designs and use them in-game. Codemasters could provide sponsor templates for each team and you could add them to the helmets based on which team you drive for. Ideally they would do both(creation suite and uploadable images it isn't like they are a rarity in gaming at this point 2K have it for wrestling and basketball.) To be honest, there is a lot to complain about when it comes to how lifeless these games can feel that I won't go into detail about here.
