Sounds like more over-emphasis on cops....

All I want is a game that will let me race an assortment of exotics and muscle cars through the kind of roads the former Top Gear now Grand Tour team often drive.

Sounds like they're still trying to hunt Most Wanted fame.

Screw Underground, give me a new NFS2. Complete with nonsense cheat codes that turn me into a T-Rex prop.

Why does EA think the only way they can achieve fun anymore is with intense cop chases?

All I want is a fun arcade game that I can grind and enjoy. Without having to play a slot machine for car parts... Oh wait I'm asking too much😭

What we want is Underground, but remastered/reimagined. That will make me buy another NFS.
Will take a NFS Underground 2 or Most Wanted 2005 remaster. Or a re-imagining as you say as long as it's good. They had two years to work on this game so if they fuck it up I'm done with NFS and will stick to the Forza Horizon series.

Payback was promising but the childish acting ruined the story and the slot machine upgrade system ruined the rest

Perhaps because we have been asking for cop chases and haven't been getting them for the last 10 years. Payback and NFS 2015's chases don't count since they were barebones and shit.
They were as much chase as I want in my NFS actually. I don't care for anything more intense then that. Although I will admit that I miss the pursuit breaker mechanic from Most Wanted which added a little strategy to the endeavor.

Cop chases for me just turn into endless driving expeditions because there's no way to lose them unless they're bottled like they were in Payback. I'm not particularly good at dodging into 2-3 sidestreets quick and hiding in a dark corner so it's just endless nonsense without pursuit breakers (and special cool-down spots)

I for one remember way back in the day there were talks of a NFS Motor City, I'd like to see that done, so basically StreetRod super remastered/reinvented. Now that I'd absolutely love!

I'm over the whole NFS of recent years. But will still buy the new one though lol.

Aren't there other games that already cater to this?

You mean Horizon? Yes...and no.

I want bottled real world locations featuring all the world's biomes and possibly some fantasy ones too. I don't just want inspired by samey open world mishmashes.

Screw underground. Give me a new NFS2:SE, High Stakes, Porsche 2000 or even Hot Pursuit 2.

If they were smart they would do what they are doing with C&C and just remaster all the old NFS titles

The last NFS game a really enjoyed was SHIFT 2, the newer ones are trash.

I really hope they make a SHIFT 3 in the future.

Doubtful. The Project Cars devs were responsible for the SHIFT games.

They wouldn’t be the same with Ghost’s influence.

Yeah I don't see NFS doing a circuit racer anytime soon being likely. They might revisit ProStreet though given its based on Bonneville Speed Week and the original FnF's 2nd act. So still a popular theme if they can manage to give us a less boring game.
