    You can't see shit in the trailer with all those cuts and videoeffects. Also, that obnoxious narrator...

    I would kill for a remastered version of NFS: Porsche Unleashed or a successor based on some other manufacturer. Unfortunately what we get is some fast and furious wannabe with unnecessary story.

    There was a rumour once about a NFS Ferrari. I would give my left testicle for a Porsche style NFS but with Ferrari. Of course it will never happen.

    Last NFS game I played was NFS2 back in 97 or smth. Then they started making NFS games with niggers and rap and lost me.

    I'm totally with you about the first NFS games, but there were quite a few games between NFS2 and the new ones which didn't have rap and such. :) You missed out on some good stuff.

    My PC wouldn't run them. It was a time when a PC needed to be fully upgraded every year, or the games just weren't playable.

    I'm impressed this garbage is still making money for them year after year, enough to keep making them.

    Trying to ape Underground again and again doesn't work as well when that type of street racing subculture is dead today. I'm going to make the wildest of fucking guesses and say that the main character is some hispanic proud vagina-having-humanoid and the bad cop is a bad white man conservative who wants to kick them out like every other tryhard agitprop game from EA and Sweden past 3 years.

    All I ever wanted was decent arcade or simcade racing without some inane modern political storyline. Even that is too much to ask from those inept chucklefucks.

    The dream is alive. There will always be an audience for the newest "cutting edge" racing game.

    Are steering wheel peripherals ever going to return? How about gas and brake pedals?

    They never went anywhere, it's just that nobody sane will spend 100$+ on a controller for one or two games (that don't even have proper support for it) unless he's some sim racing autist.

    I think Forza and Gran Turismo do move decent amounts of steering wheels on their respective platforms. There's still kits for steering wheels, even cheap ones; it's just that those cheap ones are trash and the acceptable ones with a large turning radius and FFB start at a little over €100.

    I'm glad that ProStreet style track racing is back in the game but it's not going to be the same because pics related can never happen nowadays for being too problematic which really puts a big hit in the atmosphere. The folks at Black Box did research into what former street racers were doing during that era and that track day festival atmosphere, dialogue and commentators were great in that game, but it's almost certainly going to be faux and badly done in this one.

    Last one I found enjoyable was Most Wanted from 2005 but it already had a useless irritating story from what I remember. Wouldn't mind a fun modern arcade racer but certainly not expecting that from this shit.

    Sukhāvatī tbh I think it's OVER for Underground street racing games, but the underlying gameplay mechanics, progression, and even general feel can be salvaged and be put on another racing game with a different setting. Maybe an imaginary "wacky racing" style tournament where you are only allowed to use (real-life) cars that run on carburettor. It's just that coming up with original ideas requires creativity.

    I don't know about you, but I love Most Wanted.
    Shit, I never even knew, until now, that they copied the title for another game. Why the fuck would you do that

    Need for Speed is basically Mario Kart for edgy teens.

    Mario Kart has better physics than the last few NFS games.
