I still play F1 2010 Lol! Great games regardless. I was thinking about getting 2011 or 2012, for DRS and KERS.

did the .4 patch help, notes said it addressed the understeer problem. Apparently if you went off line at all previously the grip dropped off dramatically causing the understeer.

2010 didn't seem to run smooth, 2011 seems alright, I'm just not that good/practiced at it on hardest level, and setups are a struggle

setups I always cheat and get mine from racedepartment. They generally have a good selection. They are generally a good start and then I just tweak them to fit my style. The time it would take me to do one from scratch......

as for learning the tracks. It takes me quite a while to get a track down well enough that I can consistently so competitive times, much longer than say any of the longer than any dirt or grid track ever taught me. The tracks are quite long and the consistency fact ups the difficulty.

and the reason I bought 2011 was for drs and kers more than anything else.

TBH after trying and testing post-patch it is much better. The handling feels more balanced and taking risks is actually hard and rewarding now. After all I might not regret the 60 bucks I've paid for it.

they better not take cockpit cam out of F1, if they do I'll use the nose cam, the views from up behind with whole car are for arcade NFS

I miss my PS2 days of GT2,3,4

anything like that on PC ?

PC has rFactor which is getting quite old, with a sequel in development (hopefully out in 2013).

i dont think they will take the cockpit from F1, or at least I hope they dont. But its good to hear that the understeer was fixed in the patch, looks like i will have to pick it up at some point.

I apologize in advance.

THIS DOESNT HAVE GAMES FOR WINDOWS LIVE IN IT. THANK YOU CODEMASTERS. This will most likely be my next game purchase now with that being the sole reason.

you have no idea how much I've come to hate that over playing the first 2 games.

Ha, tell me about that! Finally indeed. I'm kinda curious about what you'll say about the game after playing it for a while :)
