Question Driving games with i8?

I'm curious about which driving games (any format, so the thread is universally useful) have an i8 you can drive in them?

Oh, video games. Sorry, I thought you were talking about driving around in the car, playing some sort of game.

Why ever not?

Does no one else here play games like Forza, Gran Turismo or Driveclub? And no one wants to drive an i8 in-game?

I wish. Just had the wrong frame of reference going. Car gymkhana, car football, ... car treasure hunting maybe.

I play them all, and the i8 seems like a strange omission. I mean, the new Forza has some deep cuts in the car roster so it's surprising.

I found this, but it does not look straightforward

Those don't look quite right, so how can they feel right?

I understand that for Grand Tourismo, they went to quite some length trying to represent the cars' true handling. So, you'd probably want the "original equipment" from the game creators. I'd think the next release of those games must have an i8 in them. But then again, some OEMs didn't want to be part of it. That's why, for instance, in the older version of GT that I have (haven't played in years), there's no Porsches, only Rufs.

I agree. It certainly would not "feel right".

Because (1) that is a player community mod, and (2) it's not a "proper driving game"; it's Grand Theft Auto 5.

I'd imagine only PC, as it requires a mod.

Electronic Arts has owned an exclusive license to use Porsche in video games since the late 90s when they developed Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed. If a game has had a Porsche since then (Forza has licensed Porsches from EA but it usually requires an additional $20-30 DLC purchase on top of the game)it was because they made a deal with EA to sub-license Porsche, other games just aren't willing to pony up the cash (or pass the cost to the consumer).

Hmm....
I stopped playing video games when I was a child.

Each to their own I suppose.

Just realised it is on PC too

Downloading the free demo as I type

I have an extreme gaming PC, so it should run v well in 4K with all the options.
