I’d rather have more places to do stuff than more vehicles to do less stuff in

830 cars. 45 tracks. Not the ratio I personally enjoy.

So here I am playing the Split/Second demo — which is another post in itself — and after finally finishing in First Place I get the teaser video and splash screen with all the exciting features. I forget how many it was exactly but my point is that I was really excited to see such a big number until I realized it was for the car count and not the number of tracks.

I am not the tuner type who loves the prospect of getting his hands on an increasing garage full of wildly different vehicles; all I want are more places to drive the car I’ve got. Give me three (maybe even ten) different vehicles and use every spare byte of space to cram in more courses, more shortcuts, more trackside details because — for my money — I’d rather have more places to do stuff than more vehicles to do less stuff in.

And yes, I realize that’s the whole point of Gran Turismo (and that’s why I hate it), I just couldn’t find a better image of so many cars from a single game than the one above. Opinion: Expressed.
