Is drifting still a thing? Also; I don't trust any sport where the winner is decided by a judges score.

Actually racing is about placing 1st.

This is the worst promo spot for a game I think I have ever seen.

Did they forget that they stated they were trying to get away from the GRID 2 drift, arcade style gameplay and bring the game back to its GRID 1 racing roots? I can only guess so because this makes the game look like the shittier GRID 2.

Drifting wasn't fun in Dirt 3 and I can't imagine it'll be fun here.

what the hell is going on in this community, too jaded for a racing game? there has barely been any recently, and Codemasters is only releasing this GRID because they know they fucked up with GRID 2.

The video I saw of people playing it at E3 also made it look like a shittier GRID 2. Way less interested now.

@sharkman: If they want to get people excited about racing games maybe they should release a trailer with racing.

Wow the negativity in this comment section ^^ They've shown videos of the racing before, why is it wrong to show of the drifting as well? It's not like you can't have drifting in a realistic racing game.

Sorry folks, but I'm damn excited for Autosport. I was so disappointed with Grid 2, this looks like Codemasters have at least learnt a lesson. The original Grid is a game I continue to play to this day, happy the career mode is familiar to the original.

Drifting was a key part of Grid 1, and in fact had an entire subsection of events designed around it. Stop whining.

Yeah, the comment section here is just dumb. That can happen when you're both an idiot and a cynic.

Shame this is posted as an E3 trailer when it's just one of a bunch of videos for the different racing styles.

Get Flamboyant or get Fat?

I really enjoyed Grid 1 save for the fact that Codemasters fucked over the PC players. And I also skipped Grid 2 for the lack of cock pit view (even though I did like the Chris Harris 12C promo) so this getting back more to Grid 1 is good imo.

But I dont know, Project CARS looks like its what I really want. All the other video's I've seen make the engine makes the game look too dark with and still look to have a bland color palette.

Grid 2 was the best racing game ever made, perfect blend of realistic handling and arcade action. Any racing game that requires a racing line to play properly is a poor racing game.

You guys go have fun with your sim racers where you need to practice a track for 10+ hours to play without a racing line, I'll be having fun with Grid.

I thought the original Grid was boring.

Wait a minute, what did they do to fuck us over with Grid 1?

At the end of the day, I'm just looking for skill-based racer where precision and consistency are more important than aggression and luck. From my perspective, yes, GRID 1 was fantastic, but GRID 2 was equally fantastic... and Autosport looks to be more of the same, so I have no complaints.
