    It feels like modern car games turn more into Volkswagen Group propaganda each year. Are they the only ones willing to whore out their license or something? It's just Audi BMW and Lamborghini, each and every year forever. The only game that still has a decent or unique selection of JDM is Gran Turismo but every other game is just infinite amounts modern muscle car and gay euro sports car wank that I have seen in every other racing game since the 90s.

    What if Gran Turismo is just a Toyota and Honda propaganda?

    Toyota stopped licensing their cars for games because the CEO thinks that people don't buy their cars because they can drive them in games. It's literally what was said.

    The body of the vehicles over the body of females. Come on!

    The reason I would buy a new racing game would be for 1080p widescreen support. I don't care about seeing wide women in a racing game.

    The original article is no longer available. He basically thinks people buy cars as toys.

    All I could dig up was a poor translation from a ((( K o t a k u ))) article

    The genius "journalist" decided to spin it for a click bait article. Has there been an update from Toyaota? It's been 10 years!

    Have the Toyota executives been silenced?

    Show Spoiler

    Car sales are down in Japan, and young adults are less interested in automobiles. Instead of blaming that on a grim economy or even good public transportation, Toyota has apparently found another culprit: video games.

    In a piece in the evening edition of Osaka's Mainichi Newspaper, there's an editorial on the "date car" by journalist Masahiro Kawaguchi. Kawaguchi talks about how the slide in new car sales started in the 1990s and even connects the current decline in population to the car apathy that exists among young men. "Guys used to work hard at their job so they could get a stylish, cool car for girl's to ride in."

    Even more interesting than that connection is what Kawaguchi quotes a Toyota exec as saying: "Home game machines are no good. Playing something that realistic makes the need for cars disappear."

    Really? Video games make the need to go from Point A to Point B disappear? Next thing we know video games will be blamed for violent crime!

    That's such an odd thing for Toyota to say, especially considering how many game tie-ins the company has, such as having its FT-86 Concept car appear in Gran Turismo 5 — which is playable at the Tokyo Motor Show. It makes us wonder if that was simply some off-handed, throw away remark that obviously wasn't not thought through before uttering. Maybe!

    Kawaguchi finishes his article by talking about the next generation of sports cars and hybrid cars. Vroom vroom.

    Look at the first bolded part. I blame MRA/ incel types for not wanting to buy car to impress females.

    I completely agree, and the funniest part is that makes this edgy, fuck-the-man, rebel wannabe a beat for beat remake of Pixar's Cars 3

    49 minutes of cutscenes in a racing game?! We're truly living in the future!

    Didn't claim it is, but VW group shit is very dominant. Primarily Lambo and Porsche.

    LOL
    Looks like one of those crappy mobile racing games, with slightly better graphics. Pathetic.

    LOL, it looks like the Japanese also have their own "videogames make you do bad things" agenda. Instead of gun violence, it's car violence.

    I really hope this is good. The last NFS I really loved was Hot Pursuit. It got the drive-feel just right for me. I don't think open world adds anything to the racing genre, and I'm on the fence about heavy police elements, although they do make total sense in a street racing game

    My favorite part of the next-gen games was getting into a police chase every two minutes when all I want to do is cruise and enjoy the view.

    There's a 4(?) hour trial on uplay, I guess it's the same? You might wanna wait until it's on sale though, as it often is (E: actually it's on sale 75% off on uplay right now).

    Obviously they need to set the new one in the middle east

    Complete with a beheading cinematic if you get caught by the cops

    Suicide drifting and turkish oil wrestling are the two greatest middle eastern cultural exports.
