YES... to the quest, not the game actually. The Driver series can die for all I care.

Wish that quest would die so I can avoid making inane comments such as this (still haven't gotten it). Anyway, this trailer left me confused as to what this game will actually be about ... besides driving. Can they channel some Taxi Driver?

Ugh. Did anybody actually have fond memories of the Driver series?

I liked Driver 1 and 3 but I have never liked the Jericho/Tanner story, so basically I have never liked the story of Driver games. This looks like the same story but I have always liked the actual driving and this looks pretty good. The voice over in this trailer was a bit shit, not the actor just what he was saying.

Don't know what the story is really going to be like, but the crap about him being like in a coma or something weird.. I don't see it being good.

I hope the car that can handle his rage is voiced by William Daniels.

This looks really dumb, the dialogue was stupid and not in a fun way and there was no damage left on the cars from any of the collisions.

I'm sure they'll iron it out, but this looks like a game that would have been released maybe 2 years into the 360 lifecycle.

Driver was a pretty big deal in Europe. The first game was a system seller.

I suppose so, but my memories of the most recent ones sadly overshadow it.

"I need a car that can handle my rage"-I think we just found the best line in gaming, people.

the first game was a lot of fun. the second game was alright, and the third game was a complete disaster, but it's probably my favorite entry in the series. further from that is where my experience with the Driver series ends.  
 
i wouldn't think too many people were fond of the series judging from the usual reaction to a single mention of the Driver name, but i really enjoyed them.

If you weren't in a coma you would be in jail Tanner.

@VincentVendetta: It was pretty much dead after Driv3r, but now it's back in a big way. 
 
@Chopstix: Oh yes. The first Driver, the best one, was fantastic on the PC. Driving through San Francisco with kamikaze cop cars all over you was a real frantic experience, and the last mission is one of the best final levels I've played in any game.

Have these guys actually ever been in San Francisco? Since when are the streets that clear? Fuck, you can't even move five feet in your car, without having to deal with some fucking jackass pedestrian throwing themselves into the road for one retarded reason or another, much less dealing with other drivers.
