With GT6 latest Update you can earn up to 6,000,000 credits in one event. Totally eliminates any complaint of Microtransactions.

It's a shame the Gamespot reviewer couldn't be bothered to play the game thoroughly before writing the review.

He did but he got stuck !

PS,

I wanted to embed the video but like with most other things on here it doesn't work because this new site is a heap of shit .

I think it's crazy how users are bitching about micro transactions in forza like they have never been there before lol. I have forza 4 and I think that game had the token thing in it too, but no complaints there lol.

Cool, except that video isn't from GT6. It's from the GT Academy demo that came out this summer, that was meant to show off the new driving physics. The AI was bare bones in that one. Good Try though!!

Lems will turn a blind eye to this and claim "bla bla only GS score count" but in the real world GT6>Forza 5 lmao

Trolling aside, I hope both games fail commercially. This microtransactions BS has to stop

true, microtransactions do suck ass, but it's nice both companies are listening to their community, PD is increasing the cash pay out, (for instance some bigger events can net you 1-6.000.000$, and the bonus login is back, most events that were crappy 4500$ pay outs are now 34-50.000$ and up, depending on the race. and turn 10 is doing something about the microtransactions.

But the more i look at the reviews of both, the more things become bogus.

I do get a chuckle out of the "dated environments" like he expects a PS3 game to look as good as next gen.

And this "Acquiring the best cars is either a time-consuming grind or a major expense"

And piss poor AI, which they have. and it is atrocious. but is now fixed after update 1.02

But i guess the racing community has already spoken.

How this game got a 9.0 here, i will never know

I said the same thing about MGS IV getting a 10. What a joke.

Forza 5 got 9.0 from many sites. So it's not that surprising really.

Hot GT6 ended up with a lower score then GT5 is what's surprising.

#64 Posted by YD_11 (1639 posts) -

Forza 5 > GT6

And i am willing to bet that the main reasoning for any reviews bringing the meta down is simply due to less cars and tracks than forza 4. The game play itself is still the best racing experience on consoles.

TLHBO!!!! Yet again. This is happening alot lately. TLOU GOTY would be the icing on the cake

A 3DS game(TLOZ LBW) already won GOTY on GS.

Yeah but the TLOU won PS3 goty over 5 games that were higher rated than TLOU this year here,a score is a representation of the quality a game has,is the reason Ryse wasn't nominated for Goty neither was Killzone,other games were better period.

Ni No Kuni - 9

Beyond two Souls - 9

The Poppeteer -9

GTA5 -9

AC4 -9

The fact that TLOU beat GTA and AC4 on PS3 basically killed any opportunity those games have to win over all GOTY,in fact i even stated it on another thread about GOTY games,Either Mario,Zelda or TLOU would win because the other 2 were beat out by default,other poster i think it was charizard also claimed the same.

Gamespot screwed up that review and trying to fix it by naming TLOU Goty over other higher score games here.

Actually GTAV was close to winning, but since all the editors were okay with TLOZ ALBW winning since none of the editors had any major issues with that game that game won instead of GTAV

Gamespot actually even have an exclusive preview back when this games was unreleased.

So yeah it was a given that it would get a 9,is sad is epic because MT and GR don't lie Forza now is worse than GT6,this site downplayed GT6 because of it microtransactions,when Forza 5 has them to,and has also like 800 cars less than GT6.

Actually the person who reviewed GT6 actually gave GT6 a 7 because at the time of the review the game was kinda dated in certain aspects like the A.I He also thought it took awhile to get the best cars in the game.He also thought the game was below it's competition in certain aspects like car physics. He also thought the envirnments were dated.

*looks at website title*

Could have sworn this was Gamespot, where Forza 5 is a 9/10 and GT6 is a 7/10.

How could GTAV win GOTY win it didn't even beat out TLOU on PS3? Gamespot would have just looked even more incompetent. I think Zelda was just a safe pick for them.

#69 Edited by StrongBlackVine (8418 posts) -

So is this the lowest rated Flopza of all time?At least the scores match the sales now.

#70 Posted by SOedipus (6805 posts) -

Gamespot gave it a 9 and I go by what one (and only one) site says cause it just makes sense. Why bother looking at other reviews and being more open minded? Hell, I don't even play the games anymore. What's the point?

A lot of the editors loved both zelda and GTAV.Some of the editors also liked TLOU, but the two choices for GOTY were most likely GTAV and Zelda

This is not surprising in the least. If you break it down, GS is backwards in a lot of its policies. First of all, why don't we have dedicated racing sim reviewers? Especially for these two flagship titles releasing within 2 weeks of another. It doesn't make any sense that we would get two separate reviewers for these games, and it shows when you actually look at what they wrote in their reviews. GT6 marked down for microtransactions. Umm, Forza 5 (released 2 weeks earlier, mind you) has much worse policies in place. It has half as much content compared to Forza 4. It's pretty much a F2P game, except it costs $60. The game actually suggests cars that are locked behind a paywall. How disgusting is that? Look at sites like Eurogamer and IGN, both these games were reviewed by the same person. Only logical way to do it.

Yeah because the world doesn't exist outside this forum. There a lots of stupid things about SW, but this denial is the dumbest. Forza flopped in scores and sales. Flopza confirmed.

If you read the review for GT6 the reviewer bashed the game mostly for it's outdated aspects like A.I, the way the career mode was structured in this game and etc.

Justin Calvert used to do all sims. He didn't do either GT6 or FM5 though. Not sure what happened

IDK... I can see why people think FM5 is a 9(or lower) and I can see why people think GT5 is a 7 +/- . I definitely think had they been reviewed by the same person side by side at least one of the scores would be different though.

I don't get the hype about either of those boring racing sims. Haven't played a racing sim since SEGA GT. Street Racing & Arcade racers are much more exciting honestly. Racing around lame track is well........lame.

and also a lot less realistic. I demand realism in my racing games and so do a lot of gear heads like me. Arcade racers are too shallow and unrealistic for me hence my love for simulators.

It's kinda the same way I prefer flight sims to arcade flight games like Ace Combat. Ace Combat may be flashier and more fun looking but it isn't realistic at all hence the shallowness in my eyes. I'll play it for some casual fun but it will never grip me the same way a well made flight sim will.

I understand, you have a good point, can't argue with that lol.

I think it's mostly the basic, bland tracks that most racing sims have. I like the realistic car elements though. I just like racing in a street much more, like need for speed, Burnout, etc.
