So, “Drive Gud!” is all you, and SatNiteEduardo have to say about this?
Thanks, for letting us know… as if it wasn’t blatantly obvious, already.
Players want a fair challenge. Not blatantly BROKEN (cheating) artificial opponents who take any human, or semi-immersion out of the game play.
What if in single player FPS games, the enemies all have aimbots and can one-shot you even at the lowest difficulty?
What if in single player RTS games the enemy army has unlimited resources, map knowledge and can build quicker than the player even at the lowest difficulty?
What if in single player RPG games, players are forced to fight level 30 monsters when they are only level one, just for some XP at the lowest difficulty?
I know playing games has turned into careers for a lot of content creators (Youtube, Twitch), and many younger players use it as e-peen bragging rights, but for the vast majority of everybody else with real world responsibilities and limited time, games are meant for fun, relaxation and socializing… Even competitive genres that include arcade racing games like FH3, NFS etc.
Other posters stated players don’t have to do anything in this game to progress. They are right. You can drive around the open world and just rack up skill points if that is your idea of “progression”.
That’s not the point.
The point of progression in any game is to feel like you have accomplished something. So, if an Average Driver can beat the Drivatars on “Average” then that’s something that addsd value to their play time. The game even encourages increasing the difficulty if players are just blowing the doors off the lower difficulties, but that’s NOT what is happening in a lot of people’s games because of the busted Drivatars and PI system.
“New Driver” is like “Unbeatable”, and for some “Unbeatable” is like “New Driver” even if the driver isn’t that good. This is proof there is something wrong with this game’s AI and difficulty scaling in the single player portion of the game. Period. But we’ll take you and (I assume) T10 advice and “Drive Gud” from now on… In other racing games that are actually fun and not rage inducing.
