When I heard fishing for an example of '...someone trying to innovate on single player racing...' I just started screaming the words ‘SPLIT SECOND! SPLIT SECOND!!!’, and praying someone on the show would bring it up, but it didn’t happen. That’s what I want more of in racing games-racing not only as part of a competition, or to escape the cops, but also to survive-and as much as people didn’t seem to like NFS The Run, there was a bit of that present there. I think the stage was called ‘Independence Pass’, where you were not only racing, but avoiding debris from an avalanche too?-that was pretty awesome.
As someone who doesn’t care about anything that is multiplayer related, so far I’m not having a ton of fun with the new NFS MW- as stated, the single player experience feels hollow, and I don’t like just driving up to cars and getting them instead of earning them. Also the extra stuff like breaking fences and billboards is kind of boring to me. The best thing about it is just getting on the highway and weaving through traffic-do you think I might like Forza Horizon? Is it just as ‘arcadey’ as NFS MW (Don’t like realistic driving games at all).
