I must admit, as much as I enjoy teaming up with Swanny and Kila on GTAV, for solo play I always fire up Far Cry 4. I have another friend buying a PS4 relatively soon and FC4 is the game he wants first, so I've left a lot of the fortresses untouched for then.
DriveClub is an amazing game and the more you play and get to know the tracks, the more fun it becomes. But if driving games aren't your bag, why would you lose any sleep over it? I've put a few more vids up. This one
shows the difference between knowing the track and not! I honestly wasn't aiming for Kila at all, but when you don't know the circuit and are pushing for the overtake, it's very easy to shunt people (sorry Kila!). It's forgivable as long as its not T-boning on hairpins or chicanes, like a lot of the online numptys. The last little bit shows a muppet trying to ram Matty off for a couple of corners, then getting his come uppance. Keep your eyes fixed in the distance. Unfortunately, he still manages to clip me and let the bloke behind nip through.
I reckon if private lobbies arrive you should buy it, even if only not to be left out of witnessing one of my (numerous) strurve incidents.
