I have put a lot of hours into GT5 and generally speaking, enjoy it. I have nearly 800 cars in the garage, so I have clearly played it a lot. However, I just decided to try out the Endurance Races. My initial feeling is, "who on earth does these?"
I am curious how many players have actually completed all of the races. More than that, I am curious if anyone has bothered to do them more than once, just because they really enjoyed it? I started the first one, but miscalculated with my car choice and after lagging in 3rd place at lap 5, I failed to see why I would bother with that for another 55 laps. I then completed the first race today with B-Spec. It was easy, I picked a car that would win easily (a Citreon sports concept) and then played Zelda whilst it raced itself. At 2hours, 15minutes, I won with 4 laps ahead of the pack.
Then I tried the 2nd race, Tsukaba for 4 hours (about 3 hoursd in now, I am still winning, but not by much). 4 HOURS? 4 hours of racing a small track in a Mazda MX-5? I am not sure I want to give up 4 hours of my life for a measly 50,000ish credits. This is a short race though. The later ones get longer. I assume the LeMans really goes for 24 hours. I will do them all with B-spec as it doesn't really cost me time, and I want the bonus car from it. It may take a fair bit of will power on my part to do them in A-spec.
What are the thoughts of other GT5 players?
