Dear racing fans in Game Discussion board.

Remember Forza Motorsport 3?
This racing simulator just turned 10 years old since yesterday.

Forza Motorsport 3 was released back on October 23rd, 2009 for the Xbox 360 which featured 100 tracks and 400 cars inside the game (2 disks).

So what are your fond memories of this game? Also, this is my first game for the Xbox 360!

Yeah, it wasn't my first game for the 360, ( Sonic 06 was), but I loved Forza 3. One thing that I fondly remember is turning almost every car I bought and won into a NASCAR-like race beast. I also liked how every car had a detailed interior, unlike GT-5. Granted GT-5 had many more cars...but less customization and such.

Never played 3, but 4 was neat.

3 was the first good Forza game, one that could actually give GT a run,for its money.

It was also my 1st 360 game. My 360 came with Forza 3 and Battlefield Bad Company 2. Awesome times.

The main issue with GT5 I had is frame rate drops down when racing in poor weather conditions or 1st person view.

To me, GT5 was supposed to have 200 cars rather than 1000 because 80% of them are from the 6th generation console era while 20% are from the 7th generation console era.

Overall, Forza Motorsport 3 and Gran Turismo 5 are both great games.
