So as not to continue cluttering up the Awesome AI thread with Forza chat, I bring you the Semi Official But Not Really Official AI Racing Game Megathread For Nerds To Post About Their Vidya Game Cars. If this thread sees some actual interest and use I'll be editing this OP over time to include everyone's games of choice, platform, etc. Feel free to post your Gamertag / PSN, what games you're looking to play with your fellow IRL Cool Dudes, share screenshots / videos / what have you of your sweet virtual rides... Go hog wild!

I'll also be trying to add in some various helpful links and such.

Okay, but what games are you guys playing and where do I go about getting them?
Forza Motorsport 7
Forza Horizon 3 | Hot Wheels Expansion | Blizzard Mountain Expansion
Gran Turismo Sport

There is a general Goon racing club for Horizon 3 already for those interested. Search for GRRC. If there's enough interest we can make an AI specific one! Feel free to let me know if you have one for any other games and i'll throw them up here as well

A helpful, handy list of your fellow posters and ways you can virtually race with them:

Yay. Finally found a quick and dirty way to 3 star all the drift zones in the main game. Embrace my inner bunta fujiwara and slam a 22B STI through every one full sideways. I got bored of trying to do this the right way with a custom rwd tune on an S15 or similar, so gently caress it, quick and dirty it is.

Gold starred all the drift zones in the main game and got top 10 in grrc on a couple of the more difficult ones. Seriously, 22B it up and 4 wheel drift that poo poo. Drifting is fun!

Just go into a private online freeroam to get rid of driveatars. Makes drift zones and speed zones so much easier.

May try this. Or just put skinny crap tires on the Mad Max falcon with 1000 HP. Tend to end up facing the wrong way that way though.

You're just full of protips. Hadn't thought of that. Traffic is incredibly annoying doing the average speed zones and speed cameras.



I'm Krap Nuclear on Xbox Live, BTW. No, really. I let my friends participate in creating my Xbox ID way back int he days of Halo 1 on the original XBOX. I kept it because... irony? It's unique, at least, and doesn't involve a string of numbers after my chosen name or a bunch of special characters and/or punctuation.
Currently have Forza Horizon 3, and the freebie Project Cars they gave away as a Games With Gold some time back, though I've not played that. Also Forza 3 and 4 (I think. Maybe just 4. Need to check) for 360, which play on the Bone. I have a PS3 with GT5, but have literally not put the disk in the machine. Or booted it in some time.
On most weekend nights, a few weeknights.

I used one of the tunes made by someone else. Named XP drift madness by gamegobbler1. Literally one of the first 5 starred tunes I tried for the car. It may also only be on the Horizon Edition of the car, not sure. But really the setup is kinda simple and you can likely find something similar on other cars if you search that cars tuning files for awd drift tunes. Tons of power, awd, a balanced suspension and enough toe to make the car inherently unstable at speed so you can chuck it hard and carry a big angle at speed while still being recoverable. The biggest thing that kept me from doing a tune of my own like I have been for everything else is that most of the work goes into adjusting your gearing so you're consistently 2k rpm or so from redline while in 3rd or 4th gear during the grip.

And again.
I have yet to explore tunes by others. Didn't even realize that was a thing, but makes sense, given the livery by others.
Perhaps I should RTFM or something.

I always thought I'd end up with a PS4 after having all the previous Playstations, but I'm making the switch just so I can play Forza. It seems like GT has been taking a backseat to Forza for awhile now, the reviews for GT Sport are not good from what I've seen.

Maybe you can hijack you're roomate's xbone to play Forza with us

There are only a few games that are exclusive on the PS3 and 4 that are compelling to me, and I've hated Sony's controller layout from the very beginning. I've got fairly large hands and twisting my hands to get my thumbs on both sticks hurts. I went so far as to seek out a PS3 controller that had the Xbox layout. Had a PS2 for years before I got the 360, and played a lot of stuff on that. Still have it, actually, and it's even connected. So is the PS3, but neither gets much use. My wife will break out one of the Gauntlet games on the PS2 from time to time.
Also, so far, Xbox Live Gold has been absolutely worth it in terms of the free games, if not the multiplayer capability. I'm a trailing edge gamer for a lot of them, so getting an older game or three for free every month is pretty cool. I had to add a 3TB drive to the Bone just to store them all.

delta s4 actually feels like they detailed the turbocharging in an interesting and fun way because you can gently caress with the gear ratios and dont have to pay for

also supposedly it is the best VR car game around if you're into that stuff but idk i play it with a controller and bought it on sale and its way more than i expected. even clutch kicking works

DiRT Rally is good poo poo. I used to play it with my G27 and it was a genuine workout. We're talking sore arms and sweating from wrestling with the wheel trying to keep my Opel Manta on the road by the time I finished a stage.
