I was disappointed with the lack of discussion on Forza 7 and the fiasco that has turned out to be. I know Cheapy is a fan and was looking forward to hearing his take on it (although I haven't noticed him playing, so I can understand the lack of dialogue). 

 

This was the first time I had purchased the most expensive Ultimate edition only to be disappointed with the VIP and limited uses of 100% bonus that was permanent with previous edition's VIPs. While this particular issue has been addressed satisfactorily, Turn 10 has still removed the bonuses for raising the difficulty of your racing (such as turn off racing line, sim damage and fuel use, braking assists, etc) and made those bonuses a limited-use card they can sell in their loot boxes to go along with the useless doll outfits and insignias. The racing is still a lot of fun and the graphics are amazing, but I feel dirty for supporting a game that has implemented this kind of economy.

 

My complaints about these loot crates and "Ultimate Team Packs" have generally been ignored or even downvoted and berated when discussions pop up elsewhere. These F2P methods of getting money out of people in these full priced games have me extremely concerned. Or maybe as an older gamer, I played during a time where we haven't been conditioned to just accept these marketing tactics.

That's crazy why are all the 360 going up?

Could be because it's the last Madden or NBA 2K game for that gen?
