    Tried Project Cars. Its impossible without a wheel. Just got GT Sport. I gotta say its awesome. $20 right now. Ive been a huge fan of Gran Turismo since PS1 so im a little bias.

    Also just got Dirt 4 for $14

    Dirt 4 doesn't even rate compared to Dirt Rally bro.

    I wanna get a Thrustmaster and a rig but shit is pushing $1000 bucks if I wanna get everything I want. HTC Vive with Project Cars 2 and iRacing is hnnngg..

    Gonna pick up Asetto Corsa when it goes on sale next. Forza Motorsport i am burned out on.

    I have Project Cars 2, with a wheel and VR...its hard if you play career mode, struggling to even qualify for races

    And it is much much easier without a wheel

    You need a wheel for Racing Sims. Force Feedback wheel is best to use for learning and applying it to everyday driving. Expect to be a few tenths slower though against non-Force Feedback users. Since they dont feel weight shift and track bumps.

    Dont know if your on Pc or console. Best racing sim on the market is iRacing.

    Been really enjoying gt sport with a controller. It would probably be 100x better with a wheel though

    Are there any decent single-player racing sims on PS4 without microtransactions?

    GT Sport is 99% online.

    No. Sony killed GT and Driveclub is a mess.

    I play F1 when I get a hr spare (so rarely). Only playing 2016 cos I can't justify the cost of getting a new one due to lack of playing. The wheel and pedals gather dust :-(

    @Hyperglide Maybe I'll check it out then. Depends on the amount of microtransactions.
