Poll: Should Forza and Gran Turismo remain as Xbox/Playstation's mascot racer? (16 votes)

Yes! Forza and GT are the best racer for Xbox/Playstation consoles! 81%
No! They're both boring and I wanted Microsoft and Sony to replace them with other racing game IP! 19%

Dear racers in the System Wars board!

What I've known about the 2 following consoles are Xbox Series X and PS5, both going to launch by holiday 2020 and I wanted to make a speculation.

Question: Do you think Forza and Gran Turismo remain as Xbox/Playstation's mascot racer?

I used to be a huge fan of Forza games on the 360 before I quit console gaming. Now that they are coming to PC I am more interested. However, I didn't like Forza Horizon 4 at all, mostly due to a lot of bugs it had making online connectivity highly unstable. There is no point in "replacing" them though because they could give a new name, but the underlying racing sim will remain the same.

Motorstorm needs to come back. And Evolution needs to be reopened.

This is why I'm not happy with Sony for closing down Evolution Studios since 2016.

The same goes that I hate Activision for closing down Bizarre Creations (Project Gotham Racing and Blur).

I second or third this. I think that studio actually brought interesting ideas in the Motorstorm games, Drive Club and even there game as Codemaster Onrush. They seem to never get a full support from Sony. The Playstation of today internally they seem to only care about cinematic narrative games. They got rid of studios like Evolution.

Why are there so many threads on here full of people expecting developers to get rid of franchises that have literally earned them billions? What would compel anyone to believe Forza, GT, or on the other thread, Grand Theft Auto are going anywhere? It'd be like having a goose that literally laid golden eggs, then taking it out back and shooting it just for the hell of it.

I think the best racer should be the "flagship" brand, be it Forze/GT or something else that comes along.

Brand loyalty is rarely returned to the customer, it does not serve us to be loyal to a game simply because of the name it carries. Hopeful, sure....high expectations, sure...but not loyal.

@ellos: they closed Evolution because Motorstorm Apocalypse had low sales and then Driveclub was supposed to be a launch title with a free version, then it got delayed a whole year, launched in an unplayable state with messy servers and then the free version didn’t come until like 8 months after that.

All i want from the next GT game is a proper offline career mode where i can race, earn money and tune/ buy more cars.

I dont play online and im not interested at all in the 'esport' side of things.

Yep, for GT Sport; this game received a lot of complaints for requiring internet connection and light amount of content at launch.

They are both great series for their respective audiences. I'd play either in a heartbeat.

Forza Horizon should be the MS flagship racer. I'm not a fan of closed track racers as much as I was even I was young.

I get it.

I would like to admit Forza is actually more diversity than Gran Turismo because:

Forza has 3 series and sub-genres:

  • Motorsport (Main series) (Sim Racing)
  • Horizon (Open World Arcade Street Racing)
  • Street (Quick Time Arcade Street Racing)

Gran Turismo has 4 series but only one sub-genre:

  • Main series (Sim Racing)
  • Tourist Trophy (Bike riding simulator)
  • Prologue (Spin-off) (Sim Racing)
  • Sport (Sim Racing)

Also, I reckon photo-realistic racing games are much more fitted than cartoony kart racers when it comes to Xbox and Playstation's library of racing games.
