Why is every single racing game I've ever played a complete hunk of shit? Pic related is my most recent frustration. After becoming disillusioned with Gran Turismo 5 - which is a fantastic driving game, and the world's shittiest racing game - I decided to have some fun and use my new Logitech G27 on Dirt 3.
Well my friends, its also a steaming pile of putrid shit, for the same reasons GT5 is.
The fucking AI is the closest thing mankind has produced in way of artificial retarded children. Seriously. I'm fairly sure that they run on fucking train tracks and cannot see. It doesn't matter WHAT the fuck you do, you could come to a complete stop pulled over with your goddamn hazard lights on, and these fuckers would ram right into you as if you weren't even there.
But that's not even the worst part. The worst part is how these fucking games treat the clutch pedal like its a button. There is not a fucking car on this Earth where you have to FUCKING FLOOR THE CLUTCH to get the car to shift. Except, you don't always have to in the game, just sometimes, so you never know when you're going to "mis-shift" into neutral (???).
Now I'm terrified of even installing Formula 1 2012 because I don't even want to know what unimaginable carnage Codemasters have managed to concoct by putting their mentally challenged AI drivers into fucking Formula 1 cars.
TL;DR - Racing games suck ass and I'm about to put my fist through my monitor.
