    I started the driving school this morning before work, and got the first 7 golds out of the way. I have to say, I think we take it for granted that people just know how to drive in video games. I actually think this driving school option in GT Sport is a good idea to encourage and help new gamers and I would like to see this more in games. Many games assume your experience. A lot of thought has been put into this game.

    I have zero desire to play online in this game, so I am not sure of the replay-ability for me for the full game. I will give it a whirl though.

    The online thing is scaring me away from this game. Online means that my fun is dependent on other people not being a-holes...

    It isn't just people wrecking on purpose either but people who drive aggressively and just don't know what they are doing.

    Yea for the most part single player only, although I have had some good times in Forza with other members here. If you can get a nice small group together to meet up with once in a while it can work. Even if you have some issues with bumps you know it's not on purpose and s*** happens in racing.

    Yeah, unfortunately turned it off so it displays okay for most people.

    I think the console actually encodes HDR data into the images though if you leave it on, but then those shots look messed up for most people on PC/Cellphones unless they're browsing on their UHDTV.

    The one with all the jewels that they wear when they sit in the iron throne.

    Played the demo. GT Sport is a must have if you're a racing fan. It's as simple as that.

    ^ the demo doesn't allow you to go past stage 8 of the driving school. I guess what you do in the demo carries over to the final game though.

    Played the demo for an hour or so. I think it will be a really good game, but if that's the campaign mode its really lacking. I'm really pumped about VR portion though

    I'm on ps4 pro with HDR. Visually, its really mixed. In replays, menus, and under certain conditions, it looks great, better than anything else to me, but unfortunately, not during gameplay. The pics I saw on Neogaf had me excited until I realized most were cherry-picked. 3 of courses I played are downright average looking, very bland and could have been something from Forza 4, but higher resolution. Framerate seems butter smooth.

    The lighting looks great on the cars, but very "artificial" other times. The taillights/headlamps have a cool HDR effect, but they "outshine" the other visuals, making them look worse and stand out more.

    I've give the demo an 8/10 overall. Great gameplay, mixed visuals from excellent to very average/below.

    It does have an amazing photo mode I'll give it that.

    Very tempting to get this from Amazon for $47 US with the Prime discount...

    I have no time for another game right now.

    Like custom paintjob stuff? Is that what a livery is? I'm not too keen on the terminology.

    The top shot is a custom painted car with a noob decal on it. Not sure if that answers the question though.

    The photomode is almost perfect. It's like a mini-customized Photoshop.

    Scapes are a pretty cool idea as well.

    Yeah, I guess it does...but still curious to see how it'll look with more extravagant ones would look like, with anime or Einsteins face on the hood.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't there an option to import images and place them on a car, via USB transfer?

    No time either but I can't say no. The VR usability makes it such I can't pass up.

    I'm still on the fence. Visuals look amazing. I really want to wait and see what people think of the full game though.

    The online thing still scares me and I want to see how much there really is to do offline.

    I really want it. Haven't played a good "sim" racer in a while but the limited offline is still keeping me away. I might check out the Forza 7 demo on PC but Forza 6 I barely touched so kind of want something different.

    If you want a good "sim", then you may want to check out Asseto Forza or perhaps Project Cars 2. Forza and GT are still sim-cade... love it though. I don't want to worry about the rules as such, just want the sim in the physics.

    I think that's the same guy that said its on the level of Project Cars 2 VR visually, but with only one car.

    I don't necessarily need something 100% sim, just more sim than Need for Speed or similar. I might check out Project Cars 2 though as I never played the first.
