And actually yes I have taken my corvette down a windy country rode at my limits. I say my limits because in real life you wouldn't attempt to do 120mph down a windy country road but my limit was around 65mph. And no it didn't handle ANYTHING like the way it does in IV. V is much closer to reality.
Stopped right there. 65 mph? No wonder you think V is more realistic than IV. Why don't you try doing about... 80 like once just to get a taste? I mean geez, if you pay attention to the way a car moves in V, you'll notice something just isn't right. Right now I'm driving my Giallo Evros Pegassi Vacca and it is fun to cruise around, I'll give it that, but when you throw it around on a road, it just really feel that authentic. It doesn't stick to the right lane of the road like I want it too and braking just feels unbelievable in a bad way. I know the real Aventador has some wild carbon ceramics, but this is just beyond reality. I haven't even given the car any upgrades at all.
Here is my opinion on the steering and weight. The steering is a bit too responsive. Sound ridiculous but it is just too sensitive. When i cruise, I slowly steer and even then the car just steers more than I want it too. And then when I speed, damn it just doesn't feel right. I cannot feel the weight of the car when I steer into a corner and the car just oversteers if I try to drive it the way I drove an Infernus in IV. I'm gonna bring Forza 4 into this, lol. The Aventador is of course AWD and I assume the Vacca is too, but it just doesn't feel like it -- except for the speed and takeoff, although there should be no loss of traction at all at takeoff, there should be no smoke. The Aventador drives into corners with so much grip and it doesn't just lose control or oversteer unless you're not handling the power the well. The Vacca though, it just I don't know. In addition to it's problems, you just don't feel anything when you turn.That satisfying feedback when you actually do make a corner perfectly just isn't there. I can't feel anything. I can't feel the weight, or me trying to control the car, there is no thrill. It is lacking.
In IV, yes the sense of speed was meh, and the body rolled too much on certain cars -- the sports cars actually had realistic roll, it was some of the regular cars that had unrealistic roll like the Cavalcade, PMP 600, Huntley, etc -- but you cannot say that V has more realistic steering, you just can't. I could feel the weight of the car in the steering and because of that, every car felt different from each other. The Infernus was fast but it wasn't as nimble as a Comet. The Coquette was a wild car that oversteered a lot and drifted a lot while the Banshee was a little more stable yet felt a bit heavier. All cars felt different in IV. In V, I can't say that. The supercars don't feel much different from each other and don't even get me started on the regular cars. The Futo? Totally sucks now when it's stock. The- I don't even want to drive the lower cars unless they're the nice middle $80,000 Schwartzer's, Zions, or Oracles. Those handle okay but still lack steering feedback. I don't want to drive the Stanier, I don't like driving the Ingot anymore. The Intruder ain't even fun anymore. The Sultan is only fun when it's tuned, and the Blista is an embarrassing successor to the Blista Compact.
Do you get what I'm saying?
You're probably some 17 year old kid who grew up playing IV and now you're experiencing change that you don't like and it upsets you.
To be honest, this whole "You don't like change" bullsh*t is getting on my nerves. I can handle change, dude. I play many other types of games and I adapt to their physics finely. But V just feels dumbed down and I don't really play games with dumbed down physics.
I grew up playing many different games thank you very much. Also I'm not trying to talk down to you like I'm some engineer, I just think it's ludicrous you think V's handling is more realistic than IV. It's fine that you like it better, but it isn't more realistic.
But of course, you cannot talk about how a car is supposed to handle on a GTA forum. Can't believe you got all arrogant with you "10 years of experience" when you haven't even driven a car hard. I've driven a 2013 Nissan Maxima Sport Edition hard and I could feel the roll when I turned hard into a corner -- course I wouldn't drive like that all of the time, haha.
