Hype! New sims comin' out!

Hype! Video looks great, no doubt!

Hype! But the physics will suck!

Hype!



When I was younger, so much younger than today,

A new sim release had me hyped up in ever way.

But now these days are gone and I feel so skeptical,

Drive is s**t, they won't patch it, and mods are DLC!



Help me feel the hype, for I am jaded,

And my trusty wheel begs me for something greater,

Hype me until I am persuaded,

Can't you feel hype, oh Jeez!



And now sims have changed to simply just graphics,

My trust for devs seems to vanish with my laps!

But I play old sims that still make me feel a lion under the hood,

And it's sad, just so sad, it's all the best we have!



With all this tech we should have a great AI,

Varying weather and all sorts of surfaces to race by!

Great aeros and physics galore,

But broken software is all we have!



When I was younger, so much younger than today,

I never had to pay upfront to download extra content.

But now it's hard to even justify my buys,

They don't give a f**k, two hundred bucks

To race on fake ovals!



Hype me up again, for it I'll fall,

And I'll play the better sims to ease the sore,

Day one DLC, holy f**k nope!

Why'd you hype me for?



What for?

What for?

Wow.
And, you can dance to it.
Or maybe its just my head spinning slowly.

Someone will probably link this thread in Sim Racing section at gpllinks.

I thought it was just me :D

What you wrote is so (sadly) true. I went back and forth between various sims for 3 years and I felt so empty. Going back to GPL and PnG makes me feel so satisfied instead, which is great and sad at the same time.
