    AC is my go-to sim. I just love the variety of tracks/cars at your disposal. And the modding community has kept it alive over the years. I give it a 9/10 because I wish it had "real" weather effects, and more organized online gameplay - such as safety cars, rolling starts, and caution laps.

    But AC (in my opinion) still has some of the best force feedback, and very believable physics. It also looks great and is very optimised for running in VR, which is a huge thing for me.

    Viva Assetto Corsa!

    I gave it a 8, only because of mod support otherwise it's a 6.

    as far as the game list, if your going to include Grid, you might as well add Wreckfest.

    AC is my favorite. Add Content Manager and some of the greatest mod communities (Chivas, Busca, BZ) out there, AC is still the game to beat for me. RF2 is turning into a cash cow with expensive DLC (Why not just bring RF3 to the table?). ACC seems to be missing something, though I like aspects of it.

    AC being fully modifiable makes me to give it a 10, if not for that I'd give it an 8.

    I gave it an 8. I think its driving feel is good, its physics is decent and it produces great online racing. The moddability is a big plus point to the game and will ensure its success for a long time.

    But it isn't actually a good "game". Its career mode sucks, it doesn't teach you to drive and the setup of force feedback really involves a lot of knowledge and trial and error. The multiplayer only really works with communities or SRS, both of which are at least enabled with mods but aren't part of the default game. Its default graphics are pretty dated now but with Sol it actually looks fairly reasonable. Its VR support is at least performant but it is a pain switching stuff on a WMR device involving windows projected in the club house and constant switching to a control to select content manager in a window and then kb+ mouse to change stuff and launch and to get launched into races.

    Overall I think is definitely better than average, and when it comes to racing games FFB and physics feel and the quality of the driving is what matters. Its moddability fills in any perceived gaps the game has but it doesn't reach the obvious heights of other games in similar areas such as VR support and organised racing. I think on balance it is one of the top games out there, the modding really saves it and its price ends up good.

    Thanks to the staggering contributions from the community, AC gets my nod due to its ever-expanding feature set (day/night, weather, etc.) and the unmatched number of quality mods. Yes, there are newer options out there, but AC remains absolutely relevant and encyclopedic in scope.

    Rfactor2>pc2>AC>ACC>R3E. I'd put PC2 ( with custom ffb) above rf2 if it wasn't for rf2's mod support and PC2's lack there of.

    I gave AC a 7.

    It's a very good game but it does lack some essential features. Yes, day/transitions, rain, et al have been added via csp and sol but those are mods and I judge the game by the actual development team.

    AC could have been epic has Kunos continued to work on it. Sadly, they moved on to ACC before the most could have been obtained from AC.

    Does the night, rain, clouds, etc actually affect the physics? Or just eye candy?

    AC is a good title but I don't rate it very high. Its not until one includes CM, CSP, SOL and SRS into the base game that it becomes a higher rated title. Those four mods make it compelling because on paper the base game doesn't provide much.

    The importance of mods is over rated. Very few mods matches the exact quality level of the content created by developers. Sure, it's awesome to get free or low cost tracks and cars, but how many people can afford to put hundreds or even thousands of hours of their time, competing against paid pros sitting next to the developers.... Just a thought on a very basic economic reality.

    I am in complete disagreement with people not including modded content in their rating of the game. The modding community is a vital part of AC, and a very healthy amount of mods are just as good, or possibly better (I'm looking at you RSS, VRC, Lilski, Fat Alfie, etc) than the actual base content that Kunos has created. If you're playing AC without mods, you're simply not doing it right. And don't for a second act like modding is some sort of insanely difficult task, it is the exact opposite. Oh, how I love having over 400+ cars and 120+ tracks with day/night cycle at my fingertips. "Somewhat" organized online game play thanks to SRS. All packaged in a nice, neatly setup Content Manager where I can almost do anything imaginable for the game. Thanks a bunch AC modding community for your hard work and dedication!

    I have voted. But I would like to make a little suggestion.

    'RaceDepartment Community Favourite' racing game should be based on the number of comments and positive ratings, not on scoring votes.

    Of course, unfairness arises depending on how points are given to comments and ratings. But I don't think the end result is that important. Probably, most of us don't want to see deciding which game is the Best. The important thing is how much RD members enjoy each game. Beloved games are always actively discussed by community members, and unpopular games are not. It may be difficult to introduce this time, but I hope it will be useful for future reference.

    Anyway, I'm very looking forward to seeing how this project will unfold (also RD members funny comments). Thanks Paul!

    Kunos are losing big by abandoning such a successful title.

    Endless mods, trackir support (kind of, gotta use a different plugin for it to work), overall great sim!!! They get a solid 9 from me! Devs certainly did amazing work but can't give it a 10 due to modding community made the game better imho. Can't wait for the other polls to come out for sims I own... PC2, R3E, RF2 & AMS

    Rated 8

    This poll is slightly flawed, due to wether people are raring the game as downloaded from Steam, or after installing the custom shaders pack and Sol, amongst other many decent mods.

    Base game I would say a 6 now, but with everything patched up, an 8.
    If the shaders and Sol mods were integrated a little better, and useable online, I might even say 9

    Indeed, that will be the problem with all of these polls apart from R3E. Even then it will be a factor, since people will inevitably lower their rating because it doesn't have mods.

    I only gave AC a 5, based on the vanilla game with zero mods. I never thought the physics were quite as good as people claimed, and I was not impressed by the car selection or the lack of complete classes to race together.
