On my travels of sim racing on the pc, I've come across many forums and of course racers. Ive come to the conclusion there are different types of sim racers out there, of course theres nothing wrong with that. but it does divide the community somewhat and maybe cause more debates than required. Ill try my best to categorise them as i see it. The beauty seeking racer - they prefer the visuals of the cars and tracks over any sim aspects, including physics/ffb, AI/MP and modes. The physics seeking racer - they play the game that they think is the most realistic in physics, regardless of visuals AI/MP, or any features deemed less important. These guys may just infact hot lap. The gadget/peripheral racer - these guys have the ultimate cockpits for their home pcs. Triples screens, motion seats, expensive wheels you name it the lot. Also probably strive for the most realistic physics/ffb or best online sim. The online only racer - Don't care about AI, mainly net code and their internet connection and of course the competition. Probably strives for physics/ffb but probably go for the sim with the best MP mode. Most likely has a great setup, but most importantly wants success. The casual sim racer - has a good enough wheel, likes racing AI and online, tries all sims. Goes for the fun experience maybe over realism. May not have the time to excel in sim racing. Probably goes for a balance in visuals and physics/ffb. The AI racer - Only races offline against AI and requires a offline championship mode, hasn't the time to commit to online. Most likely seeks realism in physics/ffb, but also the AI that is the most authentic, challenging and fun to race with. Most likely has a mid-hi range wheel, but not all the cockpit stuff. Probably spent more time in the AI config files to get the most realistic ai. What one are you or best fits?
