    What personally bothers me the most with RACE is that every expansion has a new name and therefor its very confusing what game we are actually playing :giggle:

    RACE 07 is always considered the core, but GTR Evolution is a strong name as well, and in the near future there will be RACE On as a new full game.

    What do you think is the best name to describe the core game(s) we are playing?

    You can vote in the poll and if you come up with another title that isnt listed please vote "other name" and dump it in this thread
     
  2. In my opinion RACE is the best name. It's simple, and I hate to say every time 07 after it:)
    GTR Evo, Race On, these are basically expansions and even if we call the game sometimes on these names, officially it's not right I think.

    I voted RACE as the corename but i wouldnt mind if they went the EA-way and name the first title RACE 06, RACE 07, RACE 08, RACE 09 etc
    In my opinion you then have a strong title that people will recognise immediately. Now we are stuck with RACE 07 and that implicates that we are playing a two year old game that is actually up-to-date to 2009 specs.
    If i were a newcomer and visit a gamestore and see RACE 07 in a shop i wouldnt even consider buying it since it looks like a 2007 game.
     
  4. Haha, I voted already but a nice idea popped in my mind:D

    When talking to friends I just call it evo.
     
  6. I agree with the name Race tbh it's simple and to the point.

    I voted actually 'Other', 'Race' was my first thought though!

    Reason for this is actually that the different names are confusing, but bottom line a GTRE owner and a RACE On owner, have a subset to play with each other, but there are parts of the game where they can not play with eacht other.

    So though confusing, but it makes the (or 'a') difference clear. Maybe they should have called 'Race On' 'Race 08' instead, as it seems to contain the WTCC 08 material.

    That is the problem when products becomes interwoven. You don't know if you need the one, which is the core product etc...

    I voted RACE but would prefer something more generic even if had the title RACE in it. I'd say there should be a core name/product and the others just variants of the core name so it is less confusing especially for newcomers.

    EDIT: How can I vote for race if I suggest something else in my post :lol::lol:
     
  9. I also think Race with the season behind. eg: Race 07, 09...etc
     
  10. Race Evolution
     
  11. I just refer to it as GTR Evolution because that is the 'umbrella game' under which every expansion pack can be used.
     
  12. I call it GTR Evo so I voted the most obvious one.
     
  13. i have voted for Race its short and simple.
     
  14. Voted for GTR Evo as this is the umbrella as already stated above, and it contains everything under/before/after it...
     
  15. Since the latest patch every content is there no matter what you start, Race 07, GTR Evo or STCC:)
     
  16. Actually, since the last patch, all addon content can be added and removed independently. Also, what Peter said is correct - the content is available no matter what executable you use.

    The only common requirement is Race 07. So that is actually the "umbrella".
     
  17. Really? My mistake, must have missed that one.
     
  18. RACE All. All games, one game.
     

  19. LOL :laugh2: I like it, but it makes me laugh as well :giggle:
     
  20. I voted something different.
