Anything after Carbon is shit.
Need For Speed is a dead franchise, taking its rightful place alongside Dead Space and Mass Effect in the cemetery of franchises.
Damn, almost every franchise went downhill after 2010.

Big fan of NFS but the last game was dumbed down so much it wasn't even enjoyable at all. Crashing was near impossible, that took away the stakes of racing and left me feeling... WTF is the point? I am essentially controlling a camera in god mode.

I shouldn't have bought Payback, because I didn't like the 2015 game that much, but I've learned my lesson. Not touching anything NfS related even in a massive sale, at least not until they change devs.

Heat? Eh, could be worse. But I'm not going to forget that these wankers were trying to pull off a FIFA UT with the performance upgrades in Payback. Always-online (NFS 2015) was bad enough but that shit above, urgh. Never bought or played Payback as a result of that.

It's the only EA franchise I give a shit about these days (R.I.P Dead Space) and sincerely hope they don't fuck up the 25th anniversary of NFS. Not holding my breath though.

Well to be fair Need For Speed 2015 was kind of an attempt to go back to underground, at least it really felt like it. And the game could have been really great, but it really lacked life and was insanely too easy, there wasn't any challenge in the game at all, I remember races where I could stop and wait for 40 seconds for the opponents to catch me back, it was terrible and really ruined the fun.
But the game was beautiful, had a good gameplay and customization, and the atmosphere was nice (although like I said it lacked something, the world felt a bit dead, even for night time).

Also I wish they would finally add a text chat in the pc version of the games, having mmo-ish online hub with lot of players is useless if you can't even talk to other people, it just feels dead and you might as well be playing alone.

If you're not making it like Burnout then I don't give a shit anymore. That series is hardcore dead.

It is time to bring the series back to the roots. What is going on with criterion?
If by roots you mean everything pre-Underground, you have my sword.

Back to basics varied looking rural tracks with beautiful next-gen landscapes, short but sweet selection of sports and exotic cars. Simple career mode where you earn money by winning races to buy, repair and upgrade cars.

Just look at the first 5 games in the series and copy that, EA. Hell just remaster those games in a single package at the very least.

Time to reinstall High Stakes on my comp.

Yes.The last and good need for speed where I enjoyed show much is from criterion.

That's is a need for speed I like to see again.

Well, those fences behind the car and color combination, body kit (reminder of U2 neon's) could lead to idea that the car is somewhere on an airstrip or closed race tracks like in Underground 2, but I hardly believe this will be the predecessor of Underground 2. The series died to me after Most Wanted. They, just don't listen to us, or don't want to believe that what was good and old is not important in the present.

EA has really gone downhill, at least at the last generation they had other ones to replace them, but even at the end they started to struggle as a whole, and by half of this they missed every mark.

If they want to make the franchise relevant again they need to study what Forza Horizon's been doing and make it better.

I'm well aware that I'm in the minority here, but I really liked Rivals and would love to see a straight up sequel to that.

They've been downgrading ever since the reboot in 2015, Payback looks really, really bad if you compare it to Need for Speed 2015... and if you compare it to Forza Horizon it looks even worse.

Play on the retro theme (Cyberpunk, etc.), yet have modern tropes all up and down.

Seems like the retro branding theme is a marketing coat of paint only, just to maximize on the new trend soon, especially the Cyberpunk retro/synth style. Feels out of place with the modern edginess in there.

This franchise has been, and still is dead to me.
