I did find Dark Souls to be a masterpiece but that game generally points you in some direction, and has a great battle mechanic despite some of the powers being broken.

 

Seee i"m the oppisite, I like long and drawn out. Give me 30 questable options and I enjoy exploreing them all, If you like a more linear story you can try xCom, it is turn based though so it might drive you nuts to! 

 

Also I don't care about how it ends, I'm more concerned with the path I take to get there honestly.

I personally am all for the well done linear story and gameplay. I know I am generally in the minority on preferring linear games but the graphics, story line, and gameplay mechanics are generally stronger in a linear game. Last of us, Uncharted Series, God of War, and more are some great examples. Though some people get the feeling that they are playing the character in a sandbox rpg in which I never got. The side quests always feel lacking to me as well.

 

Though all this said a open world multiplayer in Last of Us in a Day Z style would be amazing.

Not sure if you have a PS3 but Grid 2 is free w/ PS+. I have not gotten around to playing it yet. I honestly do not play that many arcadish racers anymore. However the new NFS looks decently fun. I may pick that up for PS4 when its in the bargain bin. I really wish Criterion would go back to the Burnout series.

That game was amazing. I beat it like 5 times when I was younger. NFS took a serious dive after MW then started going back up when Criterion started to develop them.

Just got Grid 2 on PC from the Steam sale. Only played a couple of races. Graphics are very good, but I'm very disappointed with the lack of cockpit view.

With my new PS3, I want to say I'm a bit disappointed in GT5. I thought that the cockpit view would be stellar like all the screens, but I don't believe there's a view for every single car, just for some. Disappointed.

I was disappointed with 5 also. I really like GT6 though. It feels like what 5 should have been. It has more cars and tracks along with cockpit views for the majority of the cars.

As far as driving games go, I found Need For Speed Shift and Dirt 2 to be very satisfying in terms of handling using a wheel (Logitech G25).

CockPit view is a no go for me... I drive an actual car and would prefer to have my Arcade Racers... look nothing like my reality xD. I don't need any speeding tickets lol

 

That said, NFU2 is still one of my favorites. I spent many hours fine tuning my car for that game. For an Arcade racer... you sure got a HECK of a lot of options for well fine tuning! 

 

And yea MW was pretty great! Not so much for the racing but for the Cops imo

Agreed about the car tweaking. All that started with the first Gran Turismo on the PS1 for me. Those were the days - Silent Hill, Resident Evil 2,Tekken 3 - back when I actually had the time to finish a game!

Back to the driving games though, cockpit view always feels like a more immersive experience for me when using a wheel. Bonnet view is a close second. The sense of speed and excitement is better in those views, though I would admit that finding a good cornering line is easier in the chase views.

If ur playing with a Steering wheel then yea go full in 100% with Cockpit. How ever I stick with controller only xD thankfully no real car has Controller support, so my driving record irl is safe for now! 

 

But I liked the tweaking, and testing of NFS U2... spent half my time in that game running the Test Circuits!
