I haven't touched Driveclub in a long while but I played the shit out of the online mode for about a year and a half straight. It was just so easy to get into a race. You had a curated list of races (with one starting every 15-to-30 seconds or so) and everyone in the same online hopper (private lobbies were added at a later date), so you were never more than a couple of minutes away from a race on a track/daytime/weather combo that was to your liking.
I've since moved on to other racing games but I'm back to doing 95% of my racing offline against shitty AI. :(
It's a really good game for the price. Even without buying any DLC, it's a solid mix of arcade and simulation. The graphics are also great. Still enjoy playing it every now and again.
And, I assume today is the very last day to buy any PSN game codes from other retailers since Sony's idiocy begins on April 1st?
