A no-questions-asked, instant-racing button

So, there you have it. What about something like this?
...maybe without swearing in the game's menu though.

and who's that Yrch guy? seems like a cool dude (⌐■_■)

but yeah, a random mode would be neat.

Full random of course. Random car, random track, random number of laps.. Just maybe not random difficulty.

.. random modifiers ? :D

The fun thing is, they f*cked up on the sequel as well.
There's no Arcade mode on the PS1 version of Stage II either.

I think it'd be a fun addition. Hidden away as an easter-egg or something, accessible by clicking in the bottom-left of the main menu :p

I would prefer some sort of save of the last choosen difficluty and car (maybe some other standard options) for the arcade mode.
So it would be like: select the arcade mode out and go: arcade --> enter --> enter --> enter --> race starts (obviously the select screen shouldnt have a long loading or animation time)
It would be one less button (which can makes the title screen more clear) and pressing enter a few times to start the race is also fun :D

I like the idea of a "quick race" type button as well as using previous settings. More options the better right? As long as they're useful

Random All --> RACE! button. Yea, I'd love that. Sometimes, you just aren't in the mood to fiddle with options, you just have a few minutes you want to roar some engines.

Yeah I could see GRIP being a great game to just jump in and out of when you have a small amount of time to play. So many games these days require a lengthy commitment to play.

@Broscar: so you want a heart attack button? :P

Also, what about some command line switch that launch the game, skip the videos, and automatically throw you into the game?

I want a special button on my PC tower, so that when I press it, GRIP-OS is booted and jumps me into a race right now

Screw that, just uninstall Windows and get your PC to run GRIP instead.

Hey, what about the same aswell for online playing? (queue time max. 1 min)
I mean some fast random match making with other players around the world. There should be some standard settings for this mode, too.
Its better then searching through rooms which all have different modes or settings and finding the right one.
The match making should depend on the number of player online, the skill level and their location (if it matters for the internet connection, less lag is always great).

Yeah I can't see us not having some kind of quick race matchmaking button, so no worries, there.

And GRIP OS is coming in 2020 :D
