I'd get a lot more interested if they allowed the player to override and run the big motor / small blade package everywhere.
They might in an “instant race” type race instead of playing a full season, not sure.

Thunder 03/04 has the best presentation of a nascar game there ever has been.

However I always suspected that the drivers retiring, and sometimes switching rides in the career modes was something that sponsors today would disapprove of. Those were the little details that REALLY made that game fun… it added such a sense of realism… as much as there could be… but it kept the career interesting as the cars would occasionally get new drivers even if many were just fictional names.

I just think that it’s likely harder today to get sponsors to sign off on ideas like those… as little as we the fans/game players think it might matter

yah I am about done with the NASCAR games myself. I'm still playing Heat 4. Thats good enough and when I get really nostalgic I play NASCAR Thunder 04 which is for me the GOAT of NASCAR games. The F1 games are my go for a racing fix and oddly, Tony Stewarts dirt racing game is pretty good too.
I'm playing heat 3 lol

Apparently the AI is better in 4.

Even from that ****e video we can tell that the graphics are a HUGE step up from Heat, which is nice. I'll give it a shot, but next year's game will be the tell-tale.

I like this dude’s videos, his Thunder 03 career he is doing right now is pretty worthwhile to watch
I like his insights into games. His Letplays are pretty bad IMO as he wrecks on purpose to get yellows that he needs. It’s a bad look if you’re asking for realism/simulation from new games when you race like he does in games.

Oh yah I am like "wait hes actually broadcasting hes causing a wreck on purpose and then goes and does it Wild." I enjoy the videos and hes a younger fella thats interested in NASCAR gaming which is what us old farts ( probably just me at this point) need if someone is going to keep making NASCAR games.

Interesting concern.

No setups? It sounds like this person's concern is that the realism that comes with the game primarily is the content that surrounds race weekend and creating an authentic experience to make it feel like you're an actual driver at the track. I wouldn't lose sleep over no custom setups in the first game. As long as the AI races good, and the physics are good, I'll be happy.

I'm definitely not blown away though and I'm not expecting anything much better than some of EA's best, hopefully we're getting a better game than heat 5

The sense of speed is finally back. It was absolutely lacking in the Heat games and made it look cartoony. Also the in-car camera views, which is the view that I always use, looks gorgeous and the physics look to be on point. One of the developers mentioned dynamic AI in where certain drivers normally run on track and differing lines. I’m sold.

The lack of sense of speed isn't what made the game look cartoony, imo, it was the damn graphics and physics.

Looking forward to a fresh start here.

I'd rather have a fully customizable set up than a paint booth. Even on a video game everyone's driving style is different and players with the knowledge and skill have the right to be able to squeeze every bit of speed they can especially if they're playing online

They keep talking about making it realistic but I'm concerned that the key focus here is immersion, rather than content.

I think that's super cool. And as I said, I can live without setups for one game, or an early released game if the racing is good, if the AI is as dynamic as the video Chex posted mentions, and if the physics are good.

I'm seeing more of the F1 racing game and am blown away by it. Nascar games need to get a grip. I think this is a step in the right direction
