Alive, game is alive. I can remember all those years I played, nearly 10 by now. Thinking back of S1 demo, the first chicance was closed on the inside, with a barrier and trees inside it. For some reason there was a bug, if you'd crash it on a specific way you could get stuck into it. No damage was done to the cars as there was no damage.
Now in 2012, we got damage, tyre wear, clutch wear, engine wear, more tracks, more cars, better physics, open-tracks, lost of posibilities to even with the current game make it awesome. And yet still everyone is complaining about it being out dated and no more fun.
Well to those, I dare you to set a solid PB on EVERY car track combination, and after that's done, you can say you're bored and done everything LFS has to offer.
I am thinking of trying to drive every possible car track combo to set a PB. I wouldn't even be finished once S3 is released I guess.
I fell in love with LFS, I have loved it ever since, and I still love LFS.
