Personally I've hung up my helmet and "retired" from sim racing (and gaming in general for now), as when looked at it detail no single sim really gets it right. There are a good handful that can give an enjoyable "racing" experience but not a single one that has all the bases covered. It's hard for me to pick any sim that I could really compare to the "feel" of driving a real car (in any form). In a standard home setup there are just too many of the feel aspects missing, so rather than judging a sim on how it drives I try to look at what gives the most authentic "racing" experience.
Current sims also heavily reward repetition, as nearly all across the board lack real variables that must be accounted for, such as wind strength and direction (lfs does attempt this), track/air temps and so on. It's a very sterile environment in all, that offers very little in variation.
In the end a sim is only as good as what you perceive one to be, as we all have differing views and requirements on what makes a simulation realistic.
