Last year I dabbled back into gaming a bit after not having done so for many years. F12016 got my attention, so I picked up an Xbox one to go with our new 55" TV last Christmas and got busy. I ended up enjoying myself enough that I pre-ordered F12017. I downloaded it onto the Xbox over the weekend, and it tells me it will be available to play at 10PM MDT. I’d like to think that I’ll only mess around with it for an hour or so before going to bed and then get up and going to work tomorrow, but we’ll see what happens. I do have 230 hours of vacation time and about 400 hours of sick leave on the books right now, so I can’t imagine an “I’m sick of you day” wouldn’t be too big a deal.

The expanded career mode is primarily what interests me. For nostalgia, I’m tempted to pick Mclaren-Honda and see what the car can be developed into, but I’m not sure if I really want to have to engage in that much blocking defending to get race results.
