That's all. :D
Ok, nah. 'Sup guys?!
I decided to make a new post because well to be honest why not? And simply since well I feel like I should.
Mainly because it's 2018 and alot of things have changed. Personal or on internet, I suppose.
Well, I wanted to make a new post because it's a little bit difficult for me to put myself up for it.. I kind of decided that whenever i'd stop the JTX team to make up new posts regarding MC2 only to stay true to it's roots. However that became harder and harder since afterall it's a 15 year old game, amazingly. I truly still can't capture that. To play this game is a bit surreal to me each time I play it and I still after all of this time, truly enjoy it.
However, some changes in community and gameplay I can easily say that you keep on trying to grasp on something that just isn't there. And well it's sad - well to me it is.
The way you play the game now is 120% completely based of on nostalgia. Nothing will change whether you played it years ago or now. I kind of rejected of playing it so the last few months I only logged in maybe once or twice. It's not that I don't enjoy the game online anymore.. It's still a game if i'd ever get kids i'd probably let them play the career mode. Lol. Yet, I feel like the way the online community is now is just a bit disappointing. Since 'modders and trainer' people are now somehow accepted within the community. Sure there are only 20 to 25 people still playing this game after a 15 year run, but it's just a bit disappointing to me. It just has to be said, that I just don't cope with this reality but it is what it is and I can even accept that. But let's return to the topic I orginally wanted to start with now that I got that off my chest.
Some months ago I've seen a video of a dude on the internet regarding GTA and the Midnight Club series.
It's a very interesting view, and to be honest.. It kind of shattered my belief and fun within racing in GTA 5.
Check out the video:
There are actually 2 videos. This is part one. However the video that did that killing for me in racing in GTA 5 in general was the second video. Now you're not required to watch the first one but it will give you a better general acception of what happens in the 2nd video. If you have like 40 minutes to spare then just listen to his arguements and statements. Well who are YOU kidding. You're watching a blog where the wasn't any post for months. Heh. You got time. :)
Here's the link to the second video:
The reason that basically R* adds all these cars to the game is because they basically cannot afford to make a new racing game because the sales aren't good enough to do so in the game-market. I kind of summed up the video but it's really a good watch. I suggest watching this and comparing your opinion on this.
Well guys please let me know your opinion through what you think about this in general. So if you're thinking that this post is more about GTA 5 than the MC series, you're very wrong.
All these things aside after you watched the video's.. I've kinda been trying to find other parts of my childhood, which is Gran Turismo.. So if I want to go racing i'll just start the Playstation 4 and launch up GT Sport. So yeah, that's sort of what I do these days to feed my own racing addiction, because that game is just generally really fun and very competitive. However I still play all kinds of other games on my PC.. Just for racing in general i'll play that instead of trying to race in GTA5 or anything else.
Well I got what I wanted to say, watch the videos and thanks for reading! Hope you have a nice day.
