    Looking at the combination of price, quality, immersion and originality there is only one game for me in 2013 and thats Formula Truck 2013.

    Can't get enough of sliding around through a corner with a 5000kg heavy truck with 1000 horsepower.

    For next year the choice will be a lot harder when rFactor 2 and AC will be more complete. But for now Reiza gets my vote with this amazing title.

    Assetto Corsa hands down.
  7. Assetto Corsa is still not officially released (v1.0), so I'm voting for GT6.
    I love AC, but I'm not voting for Early Access titles, it's basically still in development.

    Assetto Corsa for me.

    I know it's not officially released, so it's somewhat controversial, but the overall package of:
    - Physics
    - Graphics
    - Affordability
    - Developer communication and service
    - Immersive gameplay,

    It really is one of, if not the best racing games I've ever had the pleasure of playing.

  14. I think it is pretty clear who is going to win. Hey! It's like AC's track poll: Everyone knew it was going to be the Nordschleife! :D
  15. AC is a sim, too. GSC 2013 is. And FTruck 2013 is.

    So everyone is voting on a game without multiplayer :S

    rFactor 2 for me this year. Let's hope for multiplayer in R3E en AC next year!

  18. Is MP the be all and end all of how good a sim is? At the moment AC is EA and will have MP very shortly, already its become many peoples sim of choice, pulling them away from rF2 and iRacing etc. Just wait for the MP to arrive and its going to go intergalactic.
  19. My vote went to DTM Experience, more than anything because it arrived out of the blue and has been a very welcome surprise.
    It looks great, sounds awesome and drives really well.

    I'd vote Assetto Corsa but I don't think it's fair to have it on the list when it's not finished and complete.
